Country Directors play a critical role in ADD. As our most senior members of in-country staff, they lead our work with passion, commitment and skill. They understand that inclusion of people with disabilities and equality of opportunity are human rights and that everyone benefits from inclusive and tolerant societies where no one is left behind in human development.

Our Country Directors have the flexibility to lead the country work, in line with ADD’s policies and procedures. They need to be as confident and comfortable working with poor and marginalised people with disabilities as with senior level government officials, NGO partners or institutional donors.

They also participate in leading the global organisation through membership of our Strategic Leadership Team along with senior UK management.

The role of the Country Director is to lead and develop ADD Cambodia’s country office and work, ensuring strategic coherence, strong teams, high quality programmes and sound management.


We are looking for a candidate with the following skills and experience:

  • Extensive relevant professional experience, including with international NGOs
  • Significant senior management experience in an international NGO
  • A proven background working with development approaches that seek to empower marginalised communities to achieve sustainable change based on the realisation of human rights
  • Demonstrated experience in the areas outlined in the job description
For further information on the role and what we are looking for, please see the job description.
