South Sudan: CSRF Capacity Building Advisor

NGO/UN Job Vacancy



Organization: Saferworld
Country: South Sudan
Closing date: 01 Dec 2017

The Conflict Sensitivity Resource Facility (CSRF) is a two-year pilot programme funded by the British, Swiss, Dutch, and Canadian donor missions to support the integration of conflict sensitive principles and practices into donor strategies and donor-funded programming in South Sudan. Conflict sensitivity is a programming approach that emphasises strong contextual analysis and programmatic flexibility to minimise aid’s negative consequences and maximise positive impacts. Conflict sensitivity is particularly important in volatile, conflict-affected contexts where inadequate understanding of conflict and political dynamics can lead to donors and implementing partners inadvertently exacerbating the conflict.

The pilot programme runs from September 2016 – August 2018 with a possibility of a three year follow-on programme. We anticipate receiving additional funding beginning from January 2018, which will allow us to expand a number of functions, including additional analysis of the South Sudan context and how it is interacting with donor-funded programming, greater outreach to more stakeholders working in South Sudan, additional training at the subnational level, and additional research and dissemination.

The programme is implemented by a consortium of NGOs; Saferworld is in the lead, with swisspeace and CDA Collaborative Learning playing support roles. The post-holder will be employed by Saferworld.

The post holder will support the CSRF’s existing efforts in capacity building for implementing partners and donors working in South Sudan. The post holder will be responsible for assessing conflict sensitivity of a number of international and national NGOs, developing support plans for improvement, and implementing these plans in collaboration with the NGO. S/he will work with the other capacity building advisor to develop and deliver training and provide mentorship to a range of audiences. The work will comprise several components:

· Technical leadership and strategic input

· Capacity-building and training design and delivery

· Activity budget management

· Representation and beneficiary relations

· Safety, security and risk adherence

· Cross-consortium and multi-donor relations

The person we are looking for will have experience in applying a range of conflict sensitivity, capacity-building and analysis methodologies and of working on conflict, humanitarian, gender, and/or governance issues in the East Africa region, preferably in South Sudan. S/he will have exceptional facilitation, training and capacity-building skills and a proven ability to work alongside, and to learn form, a wide range of people in a diverse team.
