This is a fixed-term role offered on a one-year contract. We are looking for the successful candidate to ideally start in January 2024, but there is flexibility with this.

You are an experienced peacebuilder and manager of people and programmes, and have worked previously in Sudan. You have proven ability in designing and adapting programmes, keeping them relevant and accountable in complex local contexts, ideally in Darfur.
Concordis has worked in Sudan and South Sudan since we were formed as an organisation in 2004. The devastation caused by the current war is heart-breaking, but it also reminds us of the vital importance of peacebuilding.
Concordis continues to implement directly in South Darfur, with a team of eight national staff who remain in Darfur and three more working from outside the country. The team consulted over 3,500 people before the war began and identified a network of 103 local peacebuilders across South Darfur. We work alongside national partner Malam Darfur Peace and Development, and support local peacebuilders where conflict is fought and felt. You’ll take on leadership of the team 18 months into the current EU grant.
You also have a track record of engaging effectively and proactively with international donors, sharing analysis, communicating the vision and winning funds. You’ll use those skills as you adapt the current programme to meet entry points for peacebuilding, as you work with the team and local partners in designing the next steps, and as you work collaboratively with donors in keeping them on board.
Despite the evident challenges, we see opportunities and an urgent need to support local peacebuilders in managing South Darfur’s myriad local conflicts, to prevent them escalating or from becoming instrumentalised in the war. There are also emerging opportunities to expand on this programme elsewhere in Darfur, and with Darfuri herders displaced into South Sudan and beyond.
This will require visionary leadership and the skill and drive to navigate a way forward in the coming months and years. Concordis’ peacebuilding programme in South Darfur is primarily about promoting peaceful coexistence amongst and between pastoralist groups and the settled population. This mirrors our existing work over the border in Central African Republic, where we engage with some of the same pastoralists during the dry season, and complements our ongoing work along the border of Sudan and South Sudan, including in Abyei.
This work can demand a lot from all of us, and we have high expectations for the person in this post, but they’ll be part of a supportive team, leading an exciting programme, helping to make a measurable change for peace.
Please take care to complete the application form in full, as we’ll assess whether you meet the person specification based solely on the answers given in the application form.

The European AI & Society Fund works to shape Artificial Intelligence to better serve people and society. Supported by 15 funding partners, including some of the largest philanthropic foundations in Europe and the US, our goal is to empower a civil society ecosystem to shape AI in the public interest and to galvanise philanthropy to engage in this work.
Since being set up in 2020 our partners have committed over €7.5m to support over 40 organisations across Europe to have a transformative impact on the debate on Artificial Intelligence. We fund organisations with deep technical and policy experience, as well as social justice groups and the communities most affected by the impacts of AI to ensure that their voices are heard at the decision table.
We are now in a unique moment of opportunity, where AI governance is recognised as a major global challenge. Europe is leading the world in regulating Artificial Intelligence and has the potential to establish a new set of democratic norms for how to direct technologies in the public interest. As a Fund, we want to meet this opportunity with new ambition: we want to grow our budget so we can sustain and grow the civil society field and we want to advocate for greater philanthropic engagement in AI and society work overall.
To support this, we are looking for someone with enthusiasm, energy and commitment to take on the new role of Senior Partnerships Manager and collaborate closely with the Director to develop and deliver the strategy for our next phase of our growth. You will work with our existing philanthropic partners to deepen our relationships, research new potential partners and scout opportunities to influence the philanthropic field by sharing the Fund’s unique perspective.

We welcome applicants with a wide range of backgrounds and experiences. This is a dynamic and growing field which will benefit from people who bring fresh ideas and perspectives. We value diversity and especially encourage applications from people who consider themselves under represented in this sector.
If you are interested in applying but uncertain if it’s right for you, please contact the Fund director Catherine Miller
What you will do:
● Translate the Fund's strategic priorities into an actionable programme of work and set of fundraising goals with support from the Director
● Build and deepen relationships with the Fund's philanthropic partners, ensuring we understand their priorities

● Organise events - in person and remote - and represent the Fund at international forums
● Work closely with the Networks and Communications Manager to produce a regular output of tailored and group updates and assets

● A strong commitment to the mission and values of the European AI & Society Fund
● Demonstrable expertise and experience of securing foundation funding especially in Europe and North America
● Strong strategic thinking and the ability to spot opportunities and respond to them swiftly
● A deep understanding of philanthropy and of what it takes for a foundation to engage with an emergent and cross-cutting issue like AI
● Strong interpersonal skills, and experience building new relationships, and deepening existing ones, with foundation partners
● Native level English with excellent writing skills across different formats and for a range of audiences. Additional languages are welcome.
