Gender, Peace & Security Adviser, Saferworld (London)

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. We engage in over 20 countries in Africa, Asia and Europe/Central Asia.

The Adviser will have an advice and support role for a number of ongoing and future programmes that are either focused on gender, peace and security (GPS) entirely, or involve a GPS component. Project components range from ones examining gender norms as drivers of conflict, to others on women’s participation in peacebuilding and sexual- and gender-based violence, including the implementation of the UN women, peace and security agenda. These include country-focused, as well as, policy-focused programmes. In addition, the Adviser will lead Saferworld’s broader policy work on gender, peace and security.

The successful candidate will have a post-graduate degree in a relevant subject or equivalent professional experience. They will have experience working on, and of conducting research into, issues related to conflict, gender equality, security and justice with specific reference to at least two of the regions where Saferworld works.

The deadline for applications is 26 June 2016
