Title: Chief Engineer 

Length of Assignment: Long-Term 

Reports to: Infrastructure Fund Manager 


The USAID-funded Visit Tunisia Activity is a 5-year project designed to enhance Tunisia’s  tourism potential, with the goal of generating revenue and jobs, particularly for women and  youth, and for populations in underserved regions of the country. The overall vision behind  USAID’s investment in Tunisia’s tourism sector is to capitalize on Tunisia’s natural, cultural,  

heritage and historical sites to develop a more diversified and high-quality tourism sector that  contributes to broad-based economic growth. Through this activity, USAID seeks to contribute  to Tunisia’s growth and development to offset the negative economic impact of the coronavirus  crisis. The project will seek to achieve the following four objectives: 

  • Objective 1: Enhance Tunisia’s competitiveness as a tourism destination;
  • Objective 2: Increase tourism-related investments and revenue; 
  • Objective 3: Improve the enabling environment for sustained growth in the tourism sector; 
  • Objective 4: Private sector engagement to expand the offer and quality of alternative tourism. 

This project will collaborate with the relevant ministries, private sector, and donors to advance  the objectives while contributing to the following high-level results:  

  1. Increase in the number of tourists.  
  2. Increase in the number of jobs in the tourism sector.  
  3. Increase in tourism revenue.  
  4. Increase in private sector-led investment and innovation in the tourism sector.  

Among other tools, the USAID Visit Tunisia Activity has a dedicated “Infrastructure Fund”,  under which the project will invest in infrastructure at selected sites, with the aim of improving  the visitor experience and overall destination competitiveness. These sites will be defined and  prioritized in consultation with local stakeholders, validated and supported through public private  dialogue and partnerships. The portfolio of infrastructure investments may include activities such  as refurbishment or construction of visitor centers, ticket kiosks, site interpretation including  signage, retail areas, and more. Chemonics International will retain local engineering and  construction firms as subcontractors to support this work.
