Do you want to play a key role in a growing, experienced and passionate team supporting and shaping CARE International UK’s Inclusive Governance portfolio? Join the Programme Quality Team!
Why work for us?
The Programme Quality Team is at the centre of CIUK’s new strategy for the delivery of high quality and impactful programming within CARE. The team delivers high quality technical assistance to CARE offices around the world in the areas of Women’s Economic Justice, Inclusive Governance, Emergency Shelter and Gender and Resilience. The team also provides thought leadership, learning as well as a global perspective to CARE programmes.
As a multi-sector, dual-mandate organization, CARE works in most of the world’s fragile and conflict-affected settings, where the majority of crisis-affected, poor and marginalized people live. A renewed focus of CARE’s new 2030 vision is to emphasize CARE’s capacity to support integrated pathways from crisis to stabilisation, recovery and sustainable peace and development.
Here we embrace the humanitarian-development-peace nexus – focused on reducing demand for humanitarian assistance by addressing its root causes which lie in poverty, inequality, poor governance and denial of human rights.
To do this we adapt our programmes and partnerships to support humanitarian and development outcomes that contribute sustainable governance and peace, ensuring CARE has the right programming and capacity in the right context and can quickly and effectively shift between interventions as appropriate. We emphasise emergency preparedness and prevention through building environmental and economic resilience, social capital and cohesion, and systems strengthening and social accountability as part of durable solutions, particularly in protracted crises. At the centre of this we place gender equality, with a strong focus on women’s voice and leadership.
About the Role
In support of this renewed, strategic focus to 2030, this new role will lead on framing and rolling-out CARE’s approach to triple nexus programming from a governance, gender and peacebuilding perspective. This will help expand our global governance team’s expertise in strengthening hybrid governance systems in fragile states affected by crisis so that they are better able to respond and build durable, peaceful solutions. This includes putting women at the centre of these solutions to ‘Build Back Equal’. It requires an individual with significant, grounded expertise, who has analytical, social and leadership skills to manage complexity as part of a large, global Confederation, and embrace collaboration and accompaniment as part of their role.
You are a passionate, self-motivated and experienced expert on Governance and Peacebuilding with strong knowledge of the institutional donor landscape in this field, including US, UK and EU donors. This will include understanding of the key donor technical frameworks and priorities in this field, as well as experience of building partnerships, donor relations and successfully winning large grants/contracts.
