Description :

Open to Internal and External Candidates

Position Title: National Programme Officer

Vacancy Number: SVN/IOMSO/002/2021

Duty Station: Baidoa, Somalia

Classification: National Officer, Grade NOB**

Type of Appointment: Short term, six months with possibility of extension

Estimated Start Date: As soon as possible

Closing Date: 08 February, 2021

Established in 1951, IOM is a Related Organization of the United Nations, and as the leading UN agency in the field of migration, works closely with governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental partners. IOM is dedicated to promoting humane and orderly migration for the benefit of all. It does so by providing services and advice to governments and migrants.

IOM is committed to a diverse and inclusive work environment. Internal and external candidates are eligible to apply to this vacancy. For the purpose of the vacancy, internal candidates are considered as first-tier candidates.

Context:

Conflict, drought, floods, outbreak of locusts, closure of refugee camps in neighboring countries and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic have exacerbated the displacement situation in Somalia. Finding durable solutions to large-scale and protracted displacement in Somalia has become a priority for national and international stakeholders since 2016. Failure to support IDP communities will likely result in disenfranchisement, thereby increasing prospects for radicalization, violent behavior and/or criminality. These scenarios pose an overall obstacle to social cohesion and manifest as clan disagreements, ineffective governance and decelerated development in Somalia thereby reducing the prospects to achieve the goals established in the Somalia National Development Plan, the National IDPs and Refugee Returnees Policy and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Addressing displacement in Somalia is, therefore, an imperative and urgent priority.

In recognition of the complex challenges posed by mass displacement, the Federal Government of Somalia (FGS) and the Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary General, Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator (DSRSG/RC/HC) launched the Durable Solutions Initiative (DSI). Under the leadership of the DSRSG/RC/HC, the UN system has stepped up its efforts to support durable solutions and progress has been achieved towards making the search for durable solutions a priority for Somalia as reflected in the 2020-2024 National Development Plan (NDP); development of National Durable Solutions Strategy and ratification of the Kampala Convention.

In view of this displacement situation, IOM will be leading a consortium composed of UNDP, UN Habitat, and Integrated Office of the UN Resident Coordinator for Somalia to implement the Saameynta (Impact) programme that seeks to contribute to: “reducing the number of people living in forced displacement through leveraging value generated by urbanization and urban infrastructure investment to deliver durable solutions at scale in three Somali cities (Baidoa, Bossaso and Beletweyne)”. The Saameynta programme was developed to address displacement challenges in an innovative manner seeking durable solutions that are affordable and sustainable through addressing specific inter-related systemic blockages, challenges, and opportunities.

Under the overall supervision of the Programme Coordinator (RDS) and the direct supervision of the Programme Manager (Durable Solutions and Urban), the successful candidate will coordinate, monitor, and support the implementation of the Recovery and Durable Solutions (RDS) interventions, providing technical support to RDS Saameynta Programme in Baidoa district of South West State of Somalia.

Core Functions / Responsibilities:

  1. Support RDS management to liaise, establish and/or maintain cordial working relationships with relevant Government focal points for the effective implementation of RDS activities at South West State Federal Member State level and, Baidoa district.
  2. With technical guidance from the Durable Solutions Programme Manager, assist the project management team and work with local authorities, communities, and partners to ensure that Displacement Affected Communities (DACs) can effectively participate in public affairs as full citizens with equal rights to make independent planning decisions that advance their access to services.
  3. Participate in the development of roadmaps, strategies, and policies for scaling up durable solutions from Federal to Municipal levels.
  4. Participate in the development, implementation and reporting of capacity building initiatives to strengthen DACs, Local Authorities and relevant stakeholders on social cohesion and social accountability.

United Nations Considerations

According to article 101, paragraph 3, of the Charter of the United Nations, the paramount consideration in the employment of the staff is the necessity of securing the highest standards of efficiency, competence, and integrity. Candidates will not be considered for employment with the United Nations if they have committed violations of international human rights law, violations of international humanitarian law, sexual exploitation, sexual abuse, or sexual harassment, or if there are reasonable grounds to believe that they have been involved in the commission of any of these acts.

The term “sexual abuse” means the actual or threatened physical intrusion of a sexual nature, whether by force or under unequal or coercive conditions. The term “sexual harassment” means any unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature that might reasonably be expected or be perceived to cause offence or humiliation, when such conduct interferes with work, is made a condition of employment or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment, and when the gravity of the conduct warrants the termination of the perpetrator’s working relationship. Candidates who have committed crimes other than minor traffic offences may not be considered for employment.

The United Nations places no restrictions on the eligibility of men and women to participate in any capacity and under conditions of equality in its principal and subsidiary organs.

Description :

Programme Management Specialist – Joint Policing Programme (JPP)

Organization: UNOPS
Posted: 0
Closing date: 

UNOPS –Somalia Country Office (SOCO) is recruiting this position through an Emergency Recruitment process (EPP).

This is an exciting and rewarding opportunity to help shape UNOPS’ efforts to support the expansion of affordable, accountable and effective policing in Somalia.

Somalia is undergoing a significant phase in its political and security development – one that offers opportunities as well as challenges to efforts to secure the foundations of longer-term stabilisation and peace. The Federal Government of Somalia (FGS), established in 2012, is set to hold their second landmark Presidential and Parliamentary elections in late 2020/early 2021. Recent high-level political dialogues present some hope for a Somali path to peace. Power relations between the country’s centre and periphery remain at the centre of the Somali crisis, however, and significant questions regarding Somalia’s national security architecture are yet to be adequately negotiated and resolved. Against this backdrop, expansion and development of professional and accountable civilian policing is both a critical precursor to peace-building efforts, and a point of significant political contestation. To that end, Somali authorities have developed a New Policing Model (NPM), which codifies a two-tier federated policing structure.

International funding has been crucial in sustaining the Somali Federal and Federal Member States (FMS) Police in returning a degree of security and rule of law to the country. The continuation and expansion of these efforts are crucial over the coming years. To enable this, the Joint Policing Programme (JPP) supports the Federal and FMS police to implement the country’s two-tier federated New Policing Model (NPM). The JPP takes advantage of the current situational opportunity to enhance collaboration in support of specific and realistic activities aimed at increasing the number of police officers operating across the country and their effectiveness in providing critical basic policing services to communities. By bringing together donor funding for the Police into one programme, the JPP enables the efficient and effective allocation of resources and fosters stronger strategic partnerships between Somali and international actors.

Purpose and Scope of Assignment

The successful applicant will demonstrate strong programme management experience gained through work on substantial and multi-donor-funded development programmes. The Programme Management Specialist will be experienced working in fragile contexts and with a variety of international donors, ideally in Somalia. She/he demonstrates strong interpersonal and stakeholder engagement skills, both with national and international counterparts. Above all, she/he will be proactive, comfortable delivering at pace and very organised.

The Programme Management Specialist will report directly to the Head of Joint Police Programme and form a critical part of the Secretariat team, which includes talented technical, programme and fund management staff.

Establish and/or maintain an electronic knowledge and information management system with due consideration for front-end and back-end users.

Introduction

The International Labour Organization (ILO) Country Office Addis Ababa covers five countries: Ethiopia, Somalia, Djibouti, South Sudan and Sudan. Additional support is provided by the Decent Work Technical Team based in Cairo, Egypt; ILO`s Regional Office for Africa and global technical backstopping units at the headquarters.

The ILO support for Somalia is articulated in the Draft Somalia Decent Work Country Programme (DWCP 2017-2019), which is aligned to the National Development Plan (NDP 2017-2019). As part of the implementation of the NDP (2017-2019) and to contribute towards achievement of the goal of decent work for all women and men, and attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the ILO will implement a project, funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA), with two thematic focuses in the Somali region: renewable energy and women’s economic empowerment.

This project seeks to address two complementary challenges to Somalia’s development: barriers to women’s full economic empowerment; and lack of access to affordable, renewably-sourced energy. Expanding access to energy in the country has the potential to increase the productivity and competitiveness of Somali women and men run/owned businesses, contribute to alleviating poverty (both of which could lead to increased investment), improve health and education outcomes, and bolster security. Women’s Economic Empowerment gives women the independence, confidence, and ability to transform their lives. There is a direct correlation between improvements in health, education, peace, and security and the eventual success of women entrepreneurs to catalyse change within their regions, clans, towns, and families. Developing women’s economic empowerment and renewable energy is critical in building wealth, creating jobs, and unleashing the potential for innovation that attracts investment and helps every nation develop.

Context:

IOM’s Disengagement, Disassociation, Reintegration and Reconciliation (DDRR) programme is a key component of IOM’s peacebuilding and stabilization portfolio that aims to increase Somalia’s resilience to destabilizing conditions and build national capacity towards sustained peace. The programme aims to contribute to peace and improved security in Somalia through supporting the Federal Government of Somalia’s National Programme on the Treatment and Handling of Disengaged Combatants and Youth at Risk (National Programme).

In the absence of a peace agreement, and other preconditions usually required for traditional Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR) programming, IOM has been supporting the Federal Government of Somalia (FGS) in its implementation of the National Programme through a four-pillared approach that reframes traditional DDR in terms of Disengagement, Disassociation, Reintegration and Reconciliation (DDRR). This context specific and context sensitive approach has been developed and implemented alongside local partners to include the national government and regional administrations, to create viable, reliable, gender-responsive, transparent and nationally owned legal and operational processes to support exit and reintegration pathways for former associates where sanctioned violent extremist groups are involved. In facilitating the reintegration of former associates within these new contexts, IOM works to reduce the risk of recidivism or recruitment into criminal or violent extremist groups by addressing the drivers of conflict and building resilience at the individual and community levels.

Under the overall supervision of the Deputy Chief of Mission and the direct supervision of the Programme Coordinator (DDRR) in Mogadishu, Somalia, the successful candidate will provide technical support for the day-to-day management, coordination, monitoring and reporting of DDRR project activities linked to assigned project grant(s), to include funding from the German

  1. Program Description
  2. Purpose

Over the next three to five months, Somalia will hold three electoral events, including:

  • Upper House elections currently planned December 1-10, 2020;
  • Lower House elections planned for December 10-27, 2020; and
  • The selection of parliamentary speakers and President planned for January-February 8, 2021.

To ensure transparency and credibility in the electoral process, states often encourage and allow for domestic observers to participate in the process. Domestic observer groups, unlike international observers, are able to easily train and deploy a large number of observers.

In Somalia, Creative seeks CSOs to identify, train, and deploy election observers in all six states during the upcoming electoral events. Priority will be given to CSOs with a track record in conducting domestic observation and CSOs that demonstrate inclusivity in project implementation. Activities should clearly identify understanding of the entire domestic observation process and include a comprehensive timeline.

  1. Background

Somalia will be entering a busy electoral period over the next 3-5 months, with legislative and presidential elections expected to be held. However, these elections will not be conducted via the envisaged “one-person-one-vote” elections but instead through a similar indirect voting system utilized in 2016. Under this system, a series of electoral colleges will be established throughout the country that will select the parliamentarians who, in turn, will vote for the president. While Somalis had hoped for a “one-person-one-vote” system, this indirect voting arrangement will allow the polls to take place in a timely manner. However, these indirect elections will test the integrity of the process as the three cycles of upcoming indirect elections take place over the next three months. A robust domestic observation effort is needed to ensure transparency, legitimacy, and credibility.

  1. Objectives

Projects under this grant supported by BUILD will contribute to a domestic observation effort that will cover all aspects of the electoral cycle, from pre-election through the election day and post-election periods. These efforts will also identify critical issues in the conduct of indirect elections and make recommendations for improving future elections in Somalia. Emphasis will be placed on inclusivity in observers deployed to conduct observation as well as the inclusion of marginalized groups, women, and youth in the electoral process.

Illustrative Activities

Examples of activities supported under any grant(s) awarded under this RFA must include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Identify/recruit at least ten (10) observers in each state, with at least 50% women from each state/multiple clans, with a focus on inclusion of marginalized groups as observers;
  • In close collaboration with Creative, develop/adjust methodology to observe indirect elections in Somalia;
  • Develop strategies to ensure observation and assessment of political environment and dynamics in the pre, during and post-election phases of the process;
  • Develop strategies to understand and assess key dynamics in conduct of process, including, for example, participation of women, youth and minority or marginalized groups, security conditions, political finance, access and role of media, election dispute resolution, etc.;
  • Collect data from a range of sources and means including checklists, key informant interviews, media monitoring (broadcast, print and social media);
  • Obtain observer accreditation, with support from Creative;
  • Conduct/participate in a cascade training program with Creative organizing the first training cascade, with grantees conducting follow on trainings in person in each state;
  • Develop a logistics and deployment plan;
  • Develop, in close consultations with Creative, reporting timelines and templates;
  • Develop mitigation plans in event of delays in the electoral calendar and other risks;
  • Develop and commit to a schedule, templates, and timelines with guidance from Creative to avoid partial or incomplete conclusions and assessments by individual observers;
  • Participate in training and incorporate government issued social distancing and other measures and materials (PPE, etc.) to mitigate the spread of Covid-19 during the activity implementation; and,
  • Develop final summary report on observation findings and coordinate its public release with Creative in coordination with other observer groups.

Please note: Due to the spread of the Covid-19 virus in Somalia the applicant should incorporate into programs virtual communication capability which may include online communication with BUILD and participants. Activities can be implemented in the traditional fashion, taking into account guidance from local authorities and in coordination with BUILD project security guidelines.

Job description

CTG Overview CTG stands for Committed To Good. With an ethical approach at the heart of all that we do, it is a description that makes us proud. Respect for the fundamental human rights of our staff, and those our staff encounter, is a cornerstone of our values. We strive for gender equality, inclusion and diversity, providing fair and equal opportunities for all. We take a zero tolerance approach to corruption and stay true to local labour laws and all local statutory requirements.
In operation since 2006, today we are honoured to serve clients in 15 fragile and conflict-affected states assisting with disaster relief, peace building, humanitarian aid and development programmes through our specialised recruitment, HR management and operational services.
Overview of position
  • During the last decade, Somalia, which has been recovering from civil conflict & political instability, was hit twice by severe droughts, 1 in 2011 & the other in late 2016. According to a poverty & vulnerability analysis in Somalia’s Ninth National Development Plan (NDP – 9), poverty is pervasive (or widespread), with the daily income of an average poor Somali being only 71% of the international poverty line of $1.90. Such extreme poverty represents great vulnerability among the majority of Somalis to recurrent shocks such as droughts, floods, displacement, poor health, loss of income or assets.
  • In October 2017, WB, EU & the UN led by MOPIED initiated an assessment of the drought. Within a timeframe of 3 months, the Drought Impact and Needs Assessment (DINA) was conducted. DINA was launched in January 2018 & is a comprehensive assessment of the
  • damages, losses & the needs for recovery that Somalia needs in the medium term. Translating the DINA findings into action, in late 2018, the GOS developed a Recovery & Resilience Framework (RRF).
  • The purpose of the RRF is to enable and inform Somali govt. & international partners programming & financing responses to the needs identified in the DINA. In doing so, the RRF which is scheduled over a 3 – 5-year time frame, will build on ongoing humanitarian efforts & align with the national development planning process, thereby helping to set Somalia on a trajectory towards the achievement of the SDGs. It establishes a collective vision & strategy for enabling recovery & resilience building by breaking the vicious cycle of vulnerability &  humanitarian crises. Using evidence based analysis & a bottom up consensus building methodology, it identifies recovery & resilience building priorities & proposes a financing approach & institutional arrangements by which these can be acted on by the GOS & its international partners.
  • The RRF priorities & strategies have been mainstreamed into the NDP – 9 as policy imperatives that cut across the 4 pillars. This allows national institutions & resilience stakeholders to build consensus around approaches & interventions, which subsequently inform the core principles of resilience.
  • The guiding principles of the RRF include ensuring short to medium term institutional capacity building to efficiently implement, monitor & evaluate both large scale investments in key sectors & small scale investments on the community level in a sustainable manner. As a multi sectoral issue, resilience building requires enhanced collaboration between stakeholders. The establishment of a Resilience Technical

The Danish Demining Group (DDG) is a business unit with DRC which aims to recreate a safe environment where people can live without the threat of landmines, unexploded ordinances and small arms and light weapons. These goals can be effectively advanced through cooperation and joint action with other organizations as well as with integration of operations and programs with its sister organization, DRC.

The Localization Agenda in line with World Humanitarian Summit commitments (25% of International financing has to go to local organizations) is also picking up speed in Somalia. Most donors are committed to give more resources to local organizations. Currently 35% of overall International Funding in Somalia is going to local organizations.

Overall purpose of the role:  The Business Partnerships and Development Unit Manager will drive new business development in support of all Somalia/Land programmes and where possible closely work with Kenya and Ethiopia programmes; creating, identifying and assessing new funding opportunities while promoting learning and innovation at country and regional level. The role is expected to maintain a consistent standard of donor relationship and high-quality proposal development working closely with DRC and DDG HoPs in delivering quality and innovative interventions, multi-country funding opportunities and consortium partnerships.

The function will support the development of an organizational culture that reflects DRC/DDG’s mandate, values, promotes accountability and high performance, encourage a team culture of learning, creativity and innovation. The position which will work closely with Technical Managers and Area Managers, will contribute to the DRC/DDG’s Somalia vision and strategic direction by providing guidance on donor priorities, funding opportunities against DRC/DDG’s core programming themes and sectors.

Responsibilities
