International Alert
Employment Type
Full time

Based: Mali

We are looking for an individual who has a talent for entrepreneurial and strategic programme development. To do this you will have strong process and interpersonal skills which will enable you to gain and maintain the trust and respect of local political actors and local civil society organisations.

You will be responsible for leading and developing Alert’s peacebuilding work in Mali. This will involve managing projects and the country programme, supervising the work of partners and ensuring quality control of project outcomes, as well as financial oversight. The post holder will supervise current initiatives, whilst assessing longer term programming opportunities in the country. Alert’s methodology is based on long term engagement in conflict affected regions and the post-holder will be required to develop a clear country strategy that can be sustained over time, a strategy which will also make reference to the wider West Africa/Sahel region.

With a masters/postgraduate degree in a relevant subject, you will have substantial experience in peacebuilding, including directly in at least two of Alert’s thematic areas of work (eg. Governance, political economy, gender and peacebuilding, climate change and conflict, conflict sensitivity). In addition to this we are looking for a person who is experienced in management, supervision and delivery of research outputs, including with local partner organisations, national and international consultants. You will have an eye for detail in project management and enjoy working in a diverse team, contributing to team strategy and expansion.
