Working with church-related and civil-social partner organisations in Sierra Leone, AGIAMONDO aims to make a contribution towards civil conflict management and the sustainable and equitable development of the country through peace-building measures.

To support our partner organisation West African Youth Network (WAYN) in its peace-building, conflict work and in its fight against corruption in the education sector, we are looking for a
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)

To support our partner organisation Women Against Violence and Exploitation in Society (WAVES), we are looking for a Social Scientist, Social Education Worker, Psychologist (m/f/d), Bo, 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.

Specifically, you will carry out the following tasks:
 You will support WAVES employees in the further development of appropriate approaches to the topics of gender and sexualised and gender-specific violence and help to develop new target group-oriented working methods and to establish these in the organisation.
 You will advise the team in its efforts to change national laws and social norms on the 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.
 You will support the employees in all matters of project management and jointly develop 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.

Your profile
 You have completed a university degree in a social science subject, preferably in 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. You are sensitive and respectful in dealing with survivors of sexualised and gender-specific violence and are used to working appropriately in taboo topics. Relevant work experience in another cultural area – ideally in West Africa – would be an advantage.
 You are experienced in supporting participatory processes to change social norms and national laws. You have relevant knowledge in media, lobbying and advocacy work. Knowledge of the strategic benefit of social networks and creativity in dealing with modern media are a further advantage.
 You have gained initial experience in the design and execution of surveys and research 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.
 You have excellent written and verbal English skills and are willing to learn Krio as part of your preparations. Knowledge of additional languages of the project area would be an advantage.
 You are prepared to live and work in a simple environment in rural Sierra Leone.
 You are an EU or Swiss citizen and, as a member of a Christian church, identify with the goals and concerns of church development and peace-building work with a strong sense of conviction.

Social scientist with knowledge of organisational development, Bertoua, Cameroon, to start as soon as possible.

Your new role
For a long time, Cameroon was considered an anchor of stability in an otherwise unstable region. But, for some years now, the situation has been marked by rising tensions. The population is increasingly suffering under what are often violent conflicts in the country. Hundreds of thousands of people have been forced to leave their homes. Civil-society agents see fundamental political, social and cultural rights as being increasingly at risk.
In eastern Cameroon, the population faces additional challenges. The region is poor, young people lack prospects and large parts of the population feel neglected by the central government. At the same time, there is a need to create peaceful social interaction with internally displaced people from other parts of the country and refugees from the neighbouring Central African Republic and to resolve recurrent tensions without violence.
The local Catholic Church is rising to these challenges. Through their Justitia et Pax Commissions, the dioceses of Bertoua and Batouri are contributing to a peaceful coexistence between the different population groups. The young Commissions are still at the beginning of their development. You will be directly integrated into the team of the Justitia et Pax Commission of the diocese of Bertoua, but will accompany both dioceses in their activities and peace work as required.

Specifically, you will carry out the following tasks:

· You will support volunteers and, if necessary, the local staff of the two diocesan Commissions in situation analysis and conflict analysis and help to identify focal points for their work. Working with the respective diocesan teams in Bertoua and Batouri, you will develop strategies for peace and conflict work on the ground.
· You will advise your colleagues on all aspects of project management and help to establish best practice examples in the organisations.
· You will support the introduction of a system for project planning, monitoring and evaluation that is appropriate to the local realities and train your colleagues in the basic features of the system.
· You will assist in networking with other civil-society agents and support joint activities for a peaceful coexistence between the different population groups.
· 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 the Archdiocese of Bertoua.

Your profile
· You have completed a university degree in a social or economic science, have additional training in organisational development and already have several years of professional experience. Work experience in an African context is an advantage.
· You are proficient in common methods of organisational consulting and are used to designing participative change processes. You are confident in the basic concepts of quality assurance and can apply these in new contexts (and adapt them to changing local conditions if necessary).
· You have a basic knowledge of human rights, peace and conflict work and/or dealing with refugees, or are prepared to acquire such knowledge as part of your preparation.
· You have good French skills and basic English skills.
· You are an EU or Swiss citizen and identify with Christian values and with the goals and concerns of church development and peace work with a strong sense of conviction.
