AGIAMONDO is the personnel service of the German Catholics for Development Cooperation. In the Civil Peace Service (CPS) we offer development workers a meaningful role working with local development agents. The CPS is a personnel programme for peace-building and the prevention of violence in crisis and conflict regions. It sets out to promote a world in which conflicts are settled without violence. Working with church-related and civil-social partner organisations in Sierra Leone, AGIAMONDO aims to make a contribution towards civil conflict management and the sustainable and equitable development of the country through peace-building measures.
Coordinator of the CPS Programme (m/f/d), Freetown, Sierra Leone
Your new role - responsible and challenging
Since the end of the civil war in 2002, Sierra Leone has been dealing with the causes of the war and reconciliation between the parties involved in the conflict.
AGIAMONDO has been involved in Sierra Leone since 2003 with its CPS national programme. AGIAMONDO's CPS national programme supports the work of partner organisations, for example in the political education of young people and disadvantaged population groups (e.g. women) and by advising organisations in the areas of natural resource governance and access to the legal system. AGIAMONDO's experts also support local organisations in their advocacy and lobbying activities.
As a coordinator, you will shape and manage the CPS national programme in Sierra Leone in coordination with the office in Cologne. Through programme development, you will contribute to quality assurance and the focus on effectiveness of the national programme, you will be the contact person for partner organisations and development workers and you will represent AGIAMONDO on the ground.
Your place of residence and work in Freetown is also suitable for families with children as it offers renowned multilingual educational establishments and a good infrastructure.
