Coordinator: Conflict Sensitivity

PCi - Peaceful Change initiative

Tunis, Tunisia

About the Role

At the centre of the North Africa Programme is PCi’s programming in Libya. This focuses on (i) building local partnerships in communities to contribute to greater community cohesion; (ii) facilitating a network of peacebuilding practitioners that enables collaboration across social, political and geographical divides; and (iii) assisting the international community delivering assistance to apply greater conflict-sensitivity to its programmes.

PCi’s Conflict Sensitivity assistance programme in Libya aims to:

  • Raise awareness and skill levels among representatives of the international community of the principles and practices for conflict sensitivity, and contribute to uptake by international organisations and representation of these principles and practices.
  • Raise the visibility of conflict-sensitivity issues at coordination and decision-making platforms used by the international community providing assistance to Libya, and enable participants to reflect more deeply on the conflict sensitivity of activities by the international community in different sectors.
  • Embed conflict sensitivity more deeply in the work of the international community, leading to greater ownership by different representations working on Libya, and encouraging international actors to make greater contributions to an enabling environment for conflict sensitive assistance in Libya.

The Conflict Sensitivity Coordinator implements PCi’s strategy to support conflict-sensitive assistance to Libya, providing both technical conflict sensitivity related input into activity delivery as well as project coordination. You will help drive PCi’s conflict sensitivity activities through managing the online Libya conflict analysis platform, raising awareness on its use, and assisting in plans to raise the interactivity of the platform. You will plan and organise the bi-monthly conflict sensitive assistance (CSA) forum in Tunis, working to assure a broad and consistent participation from representatives of the international community based in Tunisia and responding to the range of interests that they express. In addition, you will plan and organise a series of conflict sensitivity trainings and appropriate peer reviews that respond to needs expressed by or identified among international representations providing assistance to Libya. Responsibility for producing and disseminating the quarterly conflict sensitivity bulletin based on analysis and reflections on the CSA forum, conflict sensitivity trainings and peer reviews will rest with you, along with providing on-going advice and mentoring to PCi’s programming and strategic partners on the design and implementation of specific conflict sensitivity initiatives. You will contribute to, and where appropriate, lead on, raising awareness of and capacity for conflict sensitive approaches amongst project partners staff (at HQ and field office level)and PCi project teams.

Person Specification

You will have a minimum of five years of experience in peacebuilding/conflict prevention work, with specific experience of working in fragile and conflict-affected contexts; at least two of those years will demonstrate your proven experience in conflict sensitivity. You will have strong presentation and facilitation skills, with an ability to deliver training and manage workshops that build understanding of conflict sensitivity tools and mechanisms; you will also be able to deal with challenges implementers can encounter in the field. Experienced in project management, including planning, implementation, donor reporting, and monitoring and evaluation, you will enjoy working in small diverse teams and living/working in challenging environments. You will be a self-starter who values capacity development, and will be someone who models PCi’s core values of inclusion, dialogue and partnership. In addition, you will be detail-oriented, and have a can-do attitude, tenacity, and patience. Ideally, you will have experience of living and working in North Africa with particular knowledge of the Libya context, and proficiency in French and/or Arabic. You must be able to work in Tunisia as an independent consultant
