Social Education Worker, Social Scientist, Peace and Conflict Researcher (m/f/d), Freetown, 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. Due to the country’s very young population structure, teenagers and young adults played a major role. Huge progress has been made. Nevertheless, Sierra Leone continues to face significant challenges that threaten the country’s social cohesion and equitable development in the region.

Young people in particular struggle with a lack of economic opportunities and prospects. They face an ailing education system and a high level of unemployment. Widespread corruption exacerbates the marginalisation of young people, contributes to social injustice and creates more potential for conflict.
This is where the work of our partner organisation West African Youth Network (WAYN) comes in. Since 2001, WAYN has been committed to increasing young people’s involvement in decision-making processes in Sierra Leone. The organisation, which is mainly run by volunteers, focuses on combating corruption in the education sector and its far-reaching consequences for society as a whole. WAYN also helps young people to resolve conflicts without violence and to take constructive action against social injustice.

Specifically, you will carry out the following tasks:
 You will support WAYN’s anti-corruption work with young people, school pupils and students and work in close cooperation with your colleagues to develop specific options for action to identify, uncover, fight and minimise the effects of corrupt practices.
 You will support WAYN employees and volunteers in the continuous development of conflict- and gender-sensitive approaches to peace-building and conflict work and advise the organisation on methodological issues. You will accompany WAYN in the implementation of dispute resolution forums and mediation processes.
 You will advise the team on its public relations work and support WAYN in developing strategically oriented lobbying and advocacy work. You will support the organisation in its research and the evaluation, preparation and presentation of collected data.
 You will support the employees in all matters of organisational development and advise on the further development of internal processes, structures and materials. You will also support your colleagues in all areas of project management.
 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 WAYN.

Your profile
 You have a university degree in social education, social work, peace-building and conflict work or a related social science and have at least two years of professional experience, preferably in Africa.
 You have practical experience in working with teenagers and young adults. Experience with youth and voluntary organisations would be advantageous.
 Professionally, you have dealt intensively with the issue of corruption and its impact on social development processes. You are used to developing practical options for action in the fight against corruption.
 You have a solid background in dispute resolution/mediation and are prepared to familiarise yourself with the basics of peace-building and conflict work as part of your preparations.
 You are familiar with important aspects of project management and have experience in lobbying and advocacy work. You are used to familiarising colleagues with these areas and to supporting them as a mentor.
 You have good written and verbal English skills and are willing to learn Krio. Knowledge of additional languages of the project area would be an advantage.
 You are an EU or Swiss citizen and identify with Christian values and with the goals and concerns of church development and peace work.

What AGIAMONDO offers
 Individual and thorough preparation
 Three-year contract, social security and remuneration in accordance with the German Development Aid Workers Act (Entwicklungshelfergesetz)
