Resource Development Manager

World Vision International – Vietnam (WVV) invites Vietnamese competent candidates for the following position:


World Vision is a Christian relief and development organisation working to create lasting change in the lives of children, families and communities living in poverty. World Vision serves all people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender. As a child-focused organization, WV’s work focuses on children, ensuring they are protected and their basic needs are met. WVV has a total income of more than USD20,000,000 in FY12 with funding from 16 support countries in Europe, Asia, the Americas and Australia. WVV employs about 450 staff, of which 99.5% are Vietnamese nationals.

WV Vietnam has 43 Area Development Programs (ADP). ADP is a 10-15 year community development program that is an integrated approach to community development, emphasizing the process of community participation, ownership and sustainability, while addressing the macro and micro causes of poverty. WVV’s ADPs focus within one administrative district of a province which usually populated by ethnic minority people with very high rates of poverty.  In addition, WVV is implementing 15 grants and PNS (Project None Sponsorship) projects which are mostly integrated into our current ADPs. Under the national strategy, funding acquisition and grant management have been put as one of the strategic priorities for WVV in the next 3 years (FY12-14) to increase the percentage of grants and PNS funding to better balance the portfolio.
