Concordis International is a non-profit organisation, based in the UK, which works to support peace processes and the reduction of violent conflict around the world, primarily, but not exclusively, in Sudan and South Sudan.  Concordis organises informal dialogue, informed by in-depth research, bringing together leaders of the institutions and populations involved in or affected by conflict, seeking to facilitate peaceful relations between them and to build consensus on long-term solutions to the underlying causes of violence.  This work is designed to inform and support peace negotiations, especially the policy processes relevant to the negotiation and implementation of peace agreements as well as, in some cases, directly supporting conflict resolution on the ground in war-affected or conflict-prone areas. 


Concordis is seeking a qualified candidate with a relevant Master’s degree and  at least 5 years professional experience working in international development and/or conflict resolution and peacebuilding, for the position of Sudan Country Director.  Concordis believes that building relationships of trust and respect with and between those with whom it works is important and a key to successful intervention in peace processes.  The work of all members of Concordis staff is required to conform to and advance such an approach and other Concordis values.  Salary package commensurate with qualifications and experience.
