Our humanitarian, development and campaigning projects change lives around the world, and with the right support, we can beat poverty and injustice. Thousands of people already commit their time and talents to our campaigning, humanitarian and long-term development projects. Now we’re looking for yours.

The role: The Durable Peace Program (DPP) seeks to contribute to lasting peace, security, stability and sustainable development in Myanmar. The DPP Conflict Technical Programme Advisor will play a crucial part in reaching this overall objective and will be an essential part of the Program Management Unit (PMU). S/he will provide support to all DPP consortium members, affiliated entities, and sub-grantees alike. The Conflict Technical Programme Advisor will, amongst other tasks, play a leading role in providing ongoing support for the implementation of existing project-level conflict analysis to inform activities, prioritising organisations working in the DPP’s social cohesion and peacebuilding outcome areas. A new consortium-wide conflict analysis in one of the target areas will also be undertaken. This will use a suitable participatory methodology and primarily involve representatives from across all consortium members. The Conflict Technical Advisor will lead this process on behalf of the PMU.

In addition to the above, the Conflict Technical Advisor will together with the Gender Technical Programme Advisor (currently also being recruited) also provide advice in one or more of the following areas: Monitoring, Evaluation, Learning and Accountability, Communications and visibility, Civilian protection and Livelihoods.

Applicants should have demonstrable experience in at least one of these additional areas of expertise. Applicants who can demonstrate expertise and willingness to work in more areas will be viewed favourably, however notable expertise in one area is also valuable for the consortium.
