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.

 

Location: Khartoum, Sudan with travel within Sudan and the region

 

The Country Director manages Concordis’ programme and operations in Sudan, including strategic overview, programme planning, financial administration, evaluation of activities, liaison and reporting to the Director of Operations, human resources and building and maintaining Concordis’ network of strategic and operational contacts in Sudan. The ideal candidate has significant management experience and an understanding of peacebuilding methodology and interventions in complex environments. This role offers the chance to lead a committed and dynamic team to develop and implement peacebuilding programmes in a challenging working environment.

 

Application process:

 

Applicants must be available to take up post in April 2013.  Applications, on the application form downloadable from www.concordis-international.org, should be sent by email to hr@concordis-international.org by 12.00 GMT on Monday 18 March  2013.  Applications will be evaluated in late March and interviews are expected to take place by 31 March 2013.
