Tunis, Tunisia

 

 We are looking for a highly qualified to join DDG Tunisia as a Government Training Advisor Consultant.

 

Who are we?

Danish Refugee Council (DRC) is an international non-governmental organisation, which promotes and supports durable solutions to the problems faced by vulnerable people affected by conflict and instability all over the world.  Danish Demining Group (DDG) is the branch of DRC that focuses on human security programming.  DDG strives to identify safety and security needs from the perspective of those living with conflict and to help them find non-violent solutions.  These go beyond traditional mine action activities to include Armed Violence Reduction (AVR).  AVR programming specifically seeks to engage communities in developing durable solutions to local safety and security challenges.    

DRC/DDG has been working in the region in Libya and Tunisia since 2011.  In 2014, DDG started a project in border towns in southeast Tunisia to address community security and resilience, aiming to improve relationships between communities and security providers and mitigate the risks facing local youth.    

With support from the European Commission and Canada, DDG recently entered a new phase of its programming, and is seeking a qualified Interim Field Administrator to support the projects.
