*Social Scientist, Social Education Worker, Psychologist in Sierra Leone*

Your new role
The end of the civil war in 2002 marked a turning point for Sierra Leone. After years of violence, the people of Sierra Leone were able to focus on rebuilding the country, sometimes with strong international support. But despite the huge progress made in recent years, the resource-rich country still faces considerable challenges that threaten the peace and stability of the region. Even almost 20 years after the end of the civil war, the consequences of the violent conflict are still omnipresent. Insufficient access to education and resources and a high level of unemployment are accompanied by a growing lack of prospects, especially among young people. Sexualised and gender-specific violence is still part of the reality of life for many people in Sierra Leone. Girls and women suffer from physical and psychological violence on the one hand and are socially disadvantaged and restricted in the development of their identity by a variety of social and cultural practices on the other. Offenders often go unpunished. This is where the work of our partner organisation Women Against Violence and Exploitation in Society (WAVES), which has been active in the south of the country since 2005, comes in.

WAVES is committed to directly supporting women and girls affected by violence. In addition, the organisation proactively campaigns for changes to the social norms and national laws that disadvantage girls and women. Based on concrete work in the Bo region, WAVES is increasingly active in lobbying and advocacy work to improve the overall social framework for girls and women.

advocacy strategy and to train your colleagues at WAVES in campaign work.

the necessary internal processes, structures and materials.
· You will conduct training and further development events for the team and develop
appropriate training materials.
· You will be responsible for the proper spending and management of funds locally in
accordance with the donor and AGIAMONDO guidelines. In doing so, you will work in
partnership with WAVES.

Votre nouveau domaine d’intervention

Pour plus de 80% des Malgaches, les revenus ne suffisent pas à assurer une alimentation élémentaire et à satisfaire les besoins fondamentaux. Un certain nombre d’organisations non gouvernementales, ecclésiastiques ou non, tentent de mettre en évidence des approches visant à instaurer de meilleures conditions de vie, par des programmes d’action sociale et de développement. Malgré une forte demande en perfectionnement et en conseil dans différents domaines de la coopération au développement, peu de mesures qualifiées de formation initiale et continue sont proposées, dans un contexte politique et économique pourtant difficile.

Dans le domaine de la coopération au développement, l’efficacité est un aspect dont l’importance est croissante. Les acteurs s’engagent notamment à examiner et analyser consciencieusement l’efficacité de leur action, et à utiliser les résultats pour améliorer les processus décisionnels. En tant que conseiller/conseillère intégré/e, vous êtes rattaché/e au plan organisationnel à l’« Institut Supérieur de Travail Social », l’organisation catholique partenaire.

Vous devrez d’abord mettre en œuvre votre expertise et vos compétences en tant que conseiller/conseillère en processus. La mise en place et l’entretien de solides relations avec les acteurs-clés, souvent ecclésiastiques, sera déterminante pour la réussite du conseil.
• Vous favorisez les approches et méthodes participatives pour planifier, mettre en œuvre et évaluer les projets de manière axée sur les objectifs et l’efficacité.
• Vous soutenez la mise en réseau des acteurs/actrices diocésains dans le domaine du travail d’action sociale et de développement et vous favorisez la coopération avec les organisations de conseil et les personnes ressources locales.
• Vous favorisez la mise en réseau avec d’autres organisations et encourager les échanges en matière de conseil.
• Vous soutenez le dialogue entre le secrétariat de Misereor et les partenaires de Madagascar.

Votre profil
• Titulaire d’un diplôme d'études supérieures en lien avec la coopération au développement, vous avez déjà occupé un poste axé sur l’orientation sur les résultats et/ou le développement organisationnel.
• Vous avez au moins 2 ans d’expérience professionnelle, de préférence aussi acquise à l’étranger.
• Vous avez déjà œuvré avec succès dans le domaine du conseil en processus.
• Vous avez une habileté diplomatique certaine, une sensibilité et des aptitudes de communication interculturelles, et savez renforcer la responsabilité individuelle des organisations partenaires par une attitude axée sur le partenariat.
• Vous êtes prêt/e à effectuer de longs voyages sur l’île de Madagascar.
• Vous parlez bien allemand, vous savez intervenir de manière appropriée dans un environnement ecclésiastique et vous appartenez à une Église chrétienne.
• Vous êtes citoyen/ne de l’UE ou de Suisse.
