Conflict and Security Adviser: Asia Programme
based in the region

Saferworld is an independent non-governmental organisation that works to prevent violent conflict and build safer lives. We work with civil society, governments and international organisations to encourage and support effective policies and practices through advocacy, research and policy development, and through supporting the actions of others.

The Adviser will work within the Asia regional programme, both to strengthen the quality of programming across the region and to ensure that our policy recommendations are grounded in evidence and experiences from conflict-affected contexts as well as being responsive to people’s needs and perspectives. Activities will typically include: providing in-country mentoring, training and programme development support; contributing to cross-organisational learning processes; and delivering seminars or workshops to relevant government, NGO and business actors. From time to time the post-holder may also conduct targeted advocacy towards opinion-shapers and decision-makers and/or developing research programmes on key policy areas.

The exact focus will depend on the expertise of the successful candidate in relation to the needs of the team, but s/he will have programmatic expertise on gender, and at least another one of the following two thematic areas:

Security and justice
Conflict sensitivity

The successful candidate will have proven relevant experience and demonstrable knowledge and understanding of gender, as well as broader peace and security related issues. S/he will have excellent written and oral communication skills and fluency in written and spoken English.
