About the Role

Access to sanitation is considerably lower in the South Pacific Islands Countries (SPICs) than the world average and constrained by financial resources, freshwater resources, technical expertise, and challenging geographical circumstances. Alternative solutions to conventional practices are usually required in such environments.

Since 2015, EWB have been working with LLEE Vanuatu on the early stages of the Western Pacific Sanitation Marketing and Innovation Program (WPSMIP). This program aimed to improve sanitation and hygiene access and behaviours by improving supply chains and demand for sanitation and hygiene and creating supportive environments in communities that enable behaviour change to occur.

In 2017, Live and Learn established Community Based Sanitation Enterprises (CBSEs) and the focus shifted to supporting and strengthening the skills and capacity of the construction team, and developing the CBSE businesses in terms of design, costing, materials and appropriately skilled team members. The next phase will involve expanding to Santo through the establishment of a CBSE in Luganville. The focus of this role will be supporting one newly formed CBSE in Santo with some additional support being provided to the two existing CBSEs in Port Vila.

The Sanitation Technical and Business Mentor will spend approximately 40% of their time on providing business support and 60% providing technical mentoring and construction support.
