Stellar Child Care Organization (SCCO) is dedicated to breaking the circle of poverty in Andong, a village approximately twelve miles outside the Cambodian capital, Phnom Penh. We are looking for an international program manager to manage our programs, projects, and plans. You will work mostly on location in Andong, connecting the local staff with the international board.

As program manager you will play a key role in transforming the lives of the children in Andong.

Are you up for the challenge?

As a program manager, you will be responsible for monitoring, evaluating and constantly improving the SCCO programs and projects in Andong.

In addition, you will coach the teachers and social workers in the local team, and stimulate staff members’ skills and growth mindset.  

You will have an independent position, but you will have close contact with SCCO’s Dutch board member as well as professionals and volunteers in the Andong area. Also, you will communicate with a range of partners and stakeholders, including the Cambodian government, the local public school, and other NGOs.
