Under the direct supervision of the Program Specialist and overall supervision of the UN Women Representative, the Project Manager will be responsible for managing the project “Standards and Engagement for Ending Violence against Women and Domestic Violence in Bosnia and Herzegovina”, funded by SIDA, and ensure timely implementation of annual work plans. The Project Manager will work in close collaboration with the EVAW team and the operations team to ensure consistent service delivery.
The overall objective of the project is to strengthen the institutional and social response mechanisms to violence against women and domestic violence in Bosnia and Herzegovina. On one side the project aims to enhance availability, access and quality of services utilizing a multi-sectoral approach to address violence against women and domestic violence in BiH. This will be realised by support to state based and non-governmental institutional service provision in line with the requirements of the Istanbul Convention, as well as by deploying direct support to capacity development of relevant service providers in selected communities. On the other side focus will be put on promoting favourable social attitudes and behaviours towards ending violence against women and domestic violence among by engaging men, women and young people as well as media.
The EVAW Project Manager will be responsible for managing the project team to ensure the effective project implementation and achievement of results based on an agreed upon work plan and approved budget.
