Palladium is a global business that undertakes the management of international development projects throughout the world. It operates through different corporate entities in the various regions in which it conducts its business. The tender is in relation to the Challenge Fund for Youth Employment where the Company is contracted by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Sustainable Economic Development Department (DDE) (the Client) to manage the fund. The aim of the Challenge Fund is to improve economic prospects – via decent work and income – for up to 200,000 young men and women in the Middle East, North Africa, Sahel, and the Horn of Africa. The Client has entered into the contract with Palladium Europe BV which is registered in The Netherlands.

At present, the Company is looking for a Relationship Manager for Nigeria:

The Relationship Manager will be responsible for representing the Challenge Fund for Youth Employment in their assigned country or region, and acting as the primary point of contact for the Fund for Implementing Partners (IPs). The Relationship manager will act as ‘critical friend’ of the IPs, which will be reflected in closely monitoring the project performance on the one hand, but also discussing any emerging issues from that with the IP, in an open and transparent manner.

The Relationship Manager will ensure that IPs are compliant with the Fund’s delivery guidelines. This includes monitoring progress of the Implementing Partners’ projects, and supporting Implementing Partners with technical and financial reporting, providing strategic guidance, mobilizing technical assistance (TA), and any other needs that may arise.

The Relationship Manager will liaise with the Central Team to report on progress, flag issues, and contribute to high quality learning from their portfolio.
