Ethiopia: AU Liaison Director (Consultancy) Job Vacancy in Ethiopia

Organization: Crisis Action
Country: Ethiopia
Closing date: 14 Nov 2018

Title: AU Liaison Director (Consultancy)

Location: Addis Ababa, Ethiopia (applicant must have relevant authorisation to work in Ethiopia)

Compensation: A competitive package commensurate with experience

Applications close: Wednesday 14 November 2018 at 23:59 EST

Starting date: February 2019

Responsible to: Chief of Staff

Crisis Action is an award-winning organization at the forefront of global advocacy to end conflict. We work to create and support strategic coalitions to prevent deadly conflict and to ensure the protection of civilians where conflict exists. We are lucky to work with some of the world’s most effective local and global civil society leaders, human rights, humanitarian, and policy organisations. We have staff in Beirut, Berlin, Brussels, Johannesburg, London, Nairobi, New York, Paris and Washington, D.C.

Current conflict priorities for Crisis Action include South Sudan, Syria, and Yemen, though the organisation monitors other potential and actual conflicts and engages in shorter-term emergency response advocacy as well (including shorter-term campaigns over the past year on Cameroon, Central African Republic, Myanmar, and Democratic Republic of Congo).

Overview of role

As African Union (AU) Liaison Director you will advance Crisis Action’s unique model of advocacy among AU policymakers as well as NGO partners and other campaign allies in Addis Ababa. You will play a key role in crafting and delivering on strategies for impactful collective campaigns to protect civilians from armed conflict. You will continue building the network of Addis based partners, policymakers and media and work closely with colleagues across the world to build effective advocacy campaigns and maximise their impact to achieve change. We are looking for a politically savvy campaigner who is a passionate and dynamic advocate and understands how to make change happen at the African Union; we are seeking an exceptional strategist and powerful networker who strengthens our AU presence and ensures we are ever more effective in our mission to protect civilians affected by conflict.

Principal Roles

  1. Crisis Action’s Ambassador to the African Union and other Addis based institutions – As the Consultant heading our AU work, you will represent Crisis Action at the African Union and other Addis based institutions. We are looking for an individual who is equipped with a strong network of high-level contacts at the AU Commission (or has demonstrated ability to quickly establish such a network). You will also have experience working with civil society organisations, and ideally, experience coordinating joint advocacy efforts with these or similar organisations.

  2. Develop and implement impactful campaigns to protect civilians and prevent armed conflict – A core part of your responsibilities will be working with our Africa based partner organisations and policymaker allies to develop, drive forward and coordinate campaigns that mobilise the resources and influence of civil society to maximum effect. This will require you to engage the AU press corps and devise and lead impactful advocacy strategies that use a wide range of tactics that may include facilitating high-level diplomatic meetings for partners, hosting civil society delegations, running social media campaigns, and preparing compelling reports and briefings for Peace and Security Council members. Your success will depend upon your ability to build and nurture trusted relationships with policymakers in key AU departments and Addis Ababa based embassies, as well as potential allies from across civil society, academia, think tanks and the media. Working with colleagues in our other offices, you will lead or contribute to international campaigns that Crisis Action facilitates.

  3. Expert political analysis of the African Union - Focusing on actual or potential conflicts of most concern to our partners, you will ensure that Crisis Action supplements their understanding by investigating and analysing the policy positions of key AU member states, particularly members of the AU Peace & Security Council, and AU Commission officials. You will ensure that Crisis Action builds up in-depth and sophisticated intelligence on the position of key actors towards relevant conflicts, the results of which will be top quality advice to partners on advocacy demands, strategy and suggestions for action. You will also be responsible for feeding this intelligence into our global campaigns and sharing it in a timely manner with our global partner network.

  4. Contribute to the strategic development of Crisis Action at the AU and globally – As AU Liaison Office Consultant Director, you will lead the establishment of a Crisis Action office in Ethiopia. You will be responsible for consolidating and expanding Crisis Action’s relationship with core partners and our civil society network, and for developing and implementing the AU engagement strategy that aligns with the organisation’s overall organisational strategy and action plan. You will supervise the work of consultants and volunteers that may work with Crisis Action from Ethiopia. As a member of Crisis Action’s Directors Group, you will also play a leadership role in the direction of the organisation. This will include contributing to decisions about Crisis Action’s campaign portfolio, the development of our strategic plan and internal policies, as well as strategizing around both regional and international policy challenges and how best we can contribute to overcoming them.

The following are essential:

  • Commitment to Crisis Action’s mandate.

  • 8+ years of experience working on conflict prevention, human rights or humanitarian assistance at the regional and/or international level.

  • Excellent political judgement and instincts, especially with regard to foreign policy and diplomatic engagement.

  • Knowledge of and experience in influencing AU policies and processes.

  • First-rate project management and organizational skills.

  • First-class interpersonal and communication skills, including excellent writing skills and the ability to cultivate and maintain high-level contacts within governments, the media and the NGO community.

  • Ability to instil trust and confidence in partner organisations and colleagues from a variety of backgrounds.

  • Resilience and an ability to cope with multiple internal and external demands.

  • Excellent administrative and information technology skills.

  • Fluent written and spoken English.

Ethiopia: Senior Project Manager, Ethiopia Postharvest Loss Alliance for Nutrition (E-PLAN) Job Vacancy in Ethiopia

Organization: Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition
Country: Ethiopia
Closing date: 08 Nov 2018

GAIN’s purpose is to advance nutrition outcomes by improving the consumption of nutritious and safe food for all people, especially those most vulnerable to malnutrition. In particular, we aim to improve the consumption of safe and nutritious foods for—at a minimum—1 billion people over the next five years and target major improvements to food systems, resulting in more diverse and healthier diets for vulnerable people in countries where we work. GAIN Kenya has been operational in the country since 2010 and has received funding to continue and upscale its country programs at least until 2020.

GAIN has developed the Postharvest Loss Alliance for Nutrition (PLAN) to bring together the multitude of public and private sector actors addressing this issue to collectively reduce loss and waste of nutritious foods. PLAN acts as both a global nucleus for coordination, programming, research, knowledge exchange and investment on Postharvest food loss as well as a national hub in emerging markets for business to business (B2B) engagement. Through national and global alliances of stakeholders engaged in postharvest loss and waste reduction, GAIN aims to serve as a backbone organization driving for collective impact. At the center of the alliance is a B2B engine where local businesses will be matched with international industry leaders and technical experts to increase local enterprises’ access to knowledge, technologies and financial services. GAIN is now entering into Ethiopia for a 2 year project called Ethiopian Postharvest Loss Alliance for Nutrition (E-PLAN) to design and scale PLAN activities around key nutritious commodities that will reduce losses and increase the availability/accessibility to nutritious foods for vulnerable populations (pregnant women) in selected areas.

We are looking for a Senior Project Manager that will work closely with the GAIN PLAN Global Team and the Ethiopia Country Director to set up and implement the E-PLAN program and help strategically build a portfolio of activities. The position is responsible for operational delivery of a core business area or operation and has a significant management responsibility and operational impact.

The E-PLAN Senior Project Manager will be responsible for the overall management of the PLAN Ethiopia project including detail planning, implementation, and reporting to ensure the timely implementation of project activities in line with the predesigned plan. S/he will have extensive experience operating within the corporate and public sectors and effectively liaising with private companies, development agencies and governments in multiple cultures.

Strong experience in developing and managing nutrition led agriculture/agribusiness projects within a development or commercial context, including delivery experience in the field, with a particular focus in postharvest loss & food waste of nutritious foods is required. Strong communication skills, oral and written, in English and local language is essential.

The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition is committed to a policy of equal opportunity and as an inclusive employer we are keen to reflect the diversity of our society at every level within our organisation. We welcome applications from all sections of the community. Our employees worldwide are required to ensure their behaviour is consistent with our policies.
