*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.

above-mentioned topics. Part of your work will be to help realign the lobbying and
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.

sociology, social education or peace and conflict research or in psychology. You have
several years of relevant professional experience.
·You have practical experience in working with sexualised and gender-specific violence.

national laws. You have relevant knowledge in media, lobbying and advocacy work.

media are a further advantage.

projects, including the evaluation and processing of the collected data and presentation of
the results. You are able to familiarise your colleagues with the basics of this work.
