Advocacy Capacity Building Project
Deadline: 18th February 2018, 5pm
Women for Women International (WfWI) is growing its work in advocacy and is looking for an experienced consultant to support the development of WfWI’s country office staff members’ knowledge and skills in advocacy to strengthen their capacity in delivering advocacy projects.
Targeted staff for this capacity building project will be based in Afghanistan, DRC, Nigeria, Rwanda and the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI) and will be core staff involved in advocacy projects (c. 5 staff members per country). The support that the appointed consultant will provide through this project will be working with those country office staff members to develop country-specific capacity building action plans (a needs assessment will have already been conducted) and develop materials that can be used to support the implementation of the action plans.
NB: Whilst the appointed consultant will be asked to begin the implementation of these action plans, the implementation of the action plans thereafter will be coordinated by WfWI UK, with whom the consultant will work closely throughout the project and ensure effective handover.
