This was the basis for the formation of EDTF, which began mobilizing financial contribution from across the globe where significant number of Ethiopian diasporas are living. Subsequently a Secretariat has been established in Addis Abeba to translate EDTF’s development objectives into practical engagement with local partners and stakeholders and implement various social and economic development projects that benefit the poor people in the country.

The Secretariat consists of the Executive Director and the programme team who would require administrative, logistical, liaising and communication support for which this job is advertised.
