Construction Jobs in Ghana

The Systems for Health project, funded by USAID in Ghana, aims to support improved and sustainable health service delivery by strengthening systems vital to ensure access and quality while mobilizing communities and building public-private partnerships to maximize coverage. URC, with its international and Ghanaian partners, supports integrated maternal, neonatal, infant, child health (MNCH); family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH); malaria and nutrition services guided by the Community-based Health Planning and Services (CHPS) strategy, quality improvement approaches, performance-based financing mechanisms and gender mainstreaming. Systems for Health’s support for CHPS includes construction and renovation of CHPS compounds and other health facilities in the Northern and Volta Regions.

URC-CHS is seeking an experienced activity manager to oversee our rapidly growing construction and renovation program in support of CHPS. The position is based in the project’s Accra office, with extensive travel to the project’s two focus regions for construction, Northern Region and Volta Region. In addition, URC-CHS is exploring relationships with other organizations that are interested in providing support for Ghana’s expanding CHPS program. If this support emerges in the form of construction and/or renovation, this manager would oversee these activities, which might involve work in and travel to any of Ghana’s ten regions.
