Armed Violence Reduction Project Coordinator

Tripoli

DCA is looking for an experienced Project Coordinator to implement DCA Libya’s activities on Armed Violence Reduction (AVR) and Risk Education (RE). The project forms part of a larger DCA intervention, which also includes psychosocial support activities, training and capacity development of national authorities. The AVR activities related to this position will be implemented through Libyan civil society partner organisations.

The Project Officer will be responsible for developing campaigns relevant to the context of the ongoing hostilities and managing the implementation of the AVR/RE activities funded by the EU.

Currently, the project is implemented by remote management from Tunis, but may require occasional travel into Libya, the security situation permitting. Skills and experience with implementation through partners in areas inaccessible to DCA staff are therefore crucial to the position, as is the ability to liaise and coordinate with relevant local authorities e.g. the Libyan Mine Action Center and the Ministry of Education.

We are looking for:

  • Proven abilities to develop campaigns on AVR/RE using different media platforms and targeting groups of beneficiaries at risk of ERW and armed violence

  • Experience in working with civil society partner organisations, including the ability to assess and address organisational and staff development and capacity needs as well as planning and coordination of partner activities in a participatory manner

  • Experience in conducting needs assessments for AVR and RE

  • A keen ability to develop and implement monitoring and evaluation plans for partner based implementation

  • A strong sense of diplomacy

  • A sense of humour and a flexible attitude and approach to work

  • Previous experience in working with EU funding and an understanding of project management including financial and logistical aspects as well as recording and analysis of data

  • Cultural sensitivity and an appreciation of the political context in Libya

  • Fluency in written and spoken English required

We offer:

  • A job which will make a difference and improve the lives of people living at risk from landmines and other explosive remnants of war

  • Decision making competence within the set framework of the project

  • Challenging and varied work tasks and the ability to influence project design and activities

  • Competitive salary package, comprehensive insurance as per industry standards

  • A one year contract, non-family position, with the possibility of extension

Qualified candidates regardless of age, gender, race, religion or ethnic affiliation are encouraged to apply. Only applications consisting of a motivation letter and a CV as a minimum will be considered, and only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.
