Team Leader, Civilian Protection
Nonviolent Peaceforce - Team Leader, Civilian Protection
Now entering its second decade, Nonviolent Peaceforce (NP)’s global activities are developed and managed in the head office in Brussels. NP has a fundraising office in Minneapolis, USA, and programmes in the Philippines and South Caucasus.
NP launched its civilian protection programme in South Sudan in 2009, and works to prevent communal violence and to build the capacity of vulnerable communities to maintain their own security. The South Sudan programme currently has projects in Central and Western Equatoria, Lakes, Unity and Jonglei states, and has plans to expand activities in the near future.
South Sudan is a dynamic environment where emergency humanitarian situations develop and change quickly. As part of NP’s fastest growing programme, the Team Leader (TL) will be a key member of the programme team.
The Team Leader is the senior role in field offices, supervising a team consisting of international and national protection officers and field-based support staff and implementing grassroots-level programming in civilian protection and violence reduction. He/she is responsible for providing operational and programmatic supervision, as well as for implementing the programme in one of NP’s field sites.
The TL will be expected to be flexible, adaptable and solutions-focused, and willing to work in remote locations and with limited infrastructure. The position will suit an experienced and self-motivated protection professional, interested in a varied and challenging work environment, with the ability to work both independently and to motivate and guide a team.
The key responsibilities for the position of the Team Leader are described in the job profile. The Team Leader reports to the Project Coordinator and is a member of the Country Programme’s Programme Team. All employees are expected to work in English (the official working language).
