INTERVENTION MANAGER IN BURUNDI , Burundi

Intervention Manager pour le renforcement des compétences dans le domaine de l’éducation et de la santé (PAORC) (h/f/x) – Burundi

Enabel est l’Agence belge de développement. Elle exécute et coordonne la politique belge de développement international, et travaille principalement pour le compte de l’État belge. L’Agence met également en œuvre des actions pour d’autres organisations nationales et internationales. Avec 1400 collaborateurs, dont plus de 70 % de personnel local, Enabel gère quelque 150 projets, essentiellement dans des États fragiles d’Afrique.

Contexte
Le programme de coopération bilatérale belgo-burundais en cours se compose du Programme Indicatif de Coopération (PIC) 2010-2013 composé par cinq interventions : deux Programmes d’Appui Institutionnel dans le Secteur de Santé (PAISS et PAISS V), un Programme d’Appui Organisationnel dans le Secteur d’Agriculture (PAIOSA), un Programme d’Appui aux Organisations Burundaises par le Renforcement des Compétences des Ressources Humaines (PAORC) et un Programme études et expertises (PAREX – inactif actuellement).

En plus de ce programme de coopération bilatérale, Enabel au Burundi réalise un programme important financé par l’Union Européenne composé de 3 interventions : le Programme Twiteho Amagara (Mesure d’Appui à la Résilience des Populations du Burundi – volet Santé (consortium Enabel (lead) & Memisa), le Programme d’Appui au Système de Santé (PASS) à travers de l’Outil du Financement basé sur la Performance (FBP) – Phase II) et le Lake Tanganyika Water Management Projet (LATAWAMA).

Tenant compte de la situation actuelle, Enabel recherche un Intervention Manager pour le programme PAORC dont l’objet est le renforcement des compétences des ressources humaines des organisations burundaises sur deux domaines :
• Dans le domaine del’éducation, avec l’introduction d’une unité de crédit formation sur l’approche par les compétences de base et l’objectif d’intégration dans les formations initiales des élèves enseignants du cycle fondamental. Cet appui vise à pérenniser durablement les nombreux acquis des appuis d’implémentation de cette approche pédagogique par le projet PAORC FE (Formation des Enseignants) et le projet FIE (Formation Initiale des Enseignants) au profit des 300.000 élèves, par cycles, du fondamental.
• Dans le domaine de la santé, où l’accent sera mis sur la formation en chirurgie de district avec un focus sur les équipes multidisciplinaires à compétences chirurgicales dans les hôpitaux de district. Cet appui s’inscrit dans le cadre du renforcement des actions déjà mises en œuvre par les acteurs santé d’Enabel (et par d’autres parties prenantes) à différents niveaux au Burundi.

Description de la fonction
Sous l’autorité du Représentant Résident, l’Intervention Manager PAORC (IM) mobilise les ressources nécessaires pour la mise en œuvre des deux volets de la phase de prolongation dans les plus brefs délais.

Le volet éducation demande une maîtrise non seulement du cycle de formation initiale des enseignants, comme soutenu dans sa réforme par les phases précédentes, mais également un compréhension de l’enseignement supérieur en vue de mettre en place une base de consolidation à ce niveau.

La composante santé est liée aux actions menées par le Programme d’Appui Institutionnel dans le Secteur de Santé - PAISS. Elle est construite sur la stratégie nationale pour la mise en œuvre de la chirurgie de district, élaborée en 2015 par le PAISS en partenariat avec le projet PAPSBU (EU). Entravée dans sa réalisation depuis 2015, une attention particulière devra être dédiée à sa mise en œuvre. La chirurgie de district, étant encore un maillon faible dans le système de santé publique sur tout le territoire et tenant compte du budget limité, des choix de priorisation sont à faire. Le candidat doit être en mesure de faciliter ce processus, en étroite collaboration avec l’équipe PAISS.

L’IM doit être apte à travailler avec des personnes ayant différentes qualifications académiques, doit pouvoir motiver et piloter une équipe et doit assumer le rôle de facilitateur de changement.

Vos responsabilités seront les suivantes :
- La bonne exécution du projet (contenu, planning, budget, qualité) ;
- L’appui des personnes identifiées pour diriger le processus de changement ;
- La contribution au renforcement des capacités des organisations partenaires (Ministère de l’Education, de la Formation Technique et Professionnelle ; Ministère de l’Enseignement Supérieur et de la Recherche Scientifique ; Ministère de la Santé Publique et de Lutte contre le SIDA ; Union Européenne, OMS, Faculté de Médecine, ONG internationales et nationales) ;
- La coordination du processus d’apprentissage sur la manière dont une intervention contribue au développement d’un secteur ;
- La direction de l’équipe placée sous votre responsabilité hiérarchique ;
- L’assurance que les informations pertinentes sur les résultats sont disponibles pour le monitoring et l’évaluation afin de permettre le suivi de la performance, la prise de décision, l’apprentissage et le reporting.

Peace and Conflict Researcher in Sierra Leone , Sierra Leone

AGIAMONDO is the personnel service of the German Catholics for Development Cooperation. In the Civil Peace Service (CPS) we offer development workers a meaningful role working with local development agents. The CPS is a personnel programme for peace-building and the prevention of violence in crisis and conflict regions. It sets out to promote a world in which conflicts are settled without violence. 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)
 Cultural, language or other professional training, as well as coaching and supervision, individual advice

We look forward to receiving your complete online application (cover letter, Europass CV, certificates in *pdf format) by 02.08.2020 at the latest.

Social Education Worker in Sierra Leone , Sierra Leone

AGIAMONDO is the personnel service of the German Catholics for Development Cooperation. In the Civil Peace Service (CPS) we offer development workers a meaningful role working with local development agents. The CPS is a personnel programme for peace-building and the prevention of violence in crisis and conflict regions. It sets out to promote a world in which conflicts are settled without violence. 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 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.

What AGIAMONDO offers
 Individual and thorough preparation
 Three-year contract, social security and remuneration in accordance with the German Development Aid Workers Act (Entwicklungshelfergesetz)
 Cultural, language or other professional training, as well as coaching and supervision, individual advice
