published 7 January 2016 updated 15 January 2016

The UN Girls Education Initiative, Education International and Gender at Work are looking for a Program Coordinator in the framework of their three-year multi-country initiative in Africa to end school-related gender-based violence.

This collaborative initiative is designed to enhance the capacities of education unions and their members to engage in the fight against school-related gender-based violence (SRGBV) by systematically testing, replicating and disseminating innovative approaches at multiple levels within their respective contexts. UNICEF, through the UN Girls Education Initiative (UNGEI), and the targeted members of Education International (EI), will create frameworks to sustain the engagement by education unions in parts of sub-Saharan Africa. This will contribute to a larger goal and continue beyond the life of the project, which is to use the findings of this pilot to engage other regions to enhance the safety and security of male and female children, youth and teachers in educational settings around the world.

They are looking for a flexible, organised multi-tasker to coordinate the many pieces of this initiative. This position will be based in one of the countries of implementation. You will report directly to the Director of Operations, Gender at Work ([email protected]), and be accountable to the collaborative committee guiding this process for UNGEI, EI and [email protected]
