Duty Station: Juba, South Sudan

Background:

On 14 July 2020, the UN Security Council adopted its third resolution on Youth, Peace and Security (YPS): UNSCR 2535 (2020). One of the most significant elements of the Resolution is that it cements the place of YPS on the agenda of the Security Council, by requiring the UN Secretary-General to submit a biennial report to the Council on the implementation of the YPS agenda and associated Resolutions.

Purpose:**

Country Context

The South Sudan’s population is among the youngest in the world with more than 70 per cent being below 30 years and Youth (15 to 24 years) constituting about 33% (2008 census). The youth dominated demographic situation is causing significant pressure on basic social needs which are limited by the prolonged war. Many young people have not been educated and this makes them vulnerable to the overflowing problems in the environment they live in like unemployment, violence, illiteracy, exclusion from the governance systems and peace building operations. Specific challenges to young women include early marriages, lack of decision-making power on family planning and family preference of educating boys over girls. These have culminated in the fact that South Sudanese youth have not been afforded the opportunity to develop to their full potential and access the opportunities that enable them to grow, develop and prosper as fully engaged, responsive and productive citizens. The South Sudan Youth Development policy was developed and validated in (2019). The effectiveness of its implementation is dependent on the involvement of young people not only in the development of the policy, but in the implementation and follow-up so that the programs have a real impact on the youth. The policy aims to promote youth participation in democratic processes as well as in community and civic affairs. It also advocates for the creation of a supportive social, cultural, economic and political environment that will empower the youth to be partners in development as well as seek to provide an opportunity for improving the quality of life for all Youth in South

Closing date: 23 May 2021

Project Manager: Cross-border Migration (Explosive Ordnance Risk Management), South Sudan/Uganda

Fixed Term for c.7 months, until 31st December 2021.

The starting salary package for this position is £47,004 GBP per annum (approx. 66,500 USD including all allowances)

About MAG:

MAG saves lives and builds futures by working with others to reclaim land contaminated with the debris of conflict, to reduce the daily risk of death or injury for civilians, and to create safe and secure conditions for development. MAG shared the 1997 Nobel Peace Prize as a founding member of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines for our work to ban landmines. Our vision is a safe and secure future for men, women and children affected by armed violence and conflict.

About the South Sudan programme:

South Sudan is one of the youngest, poorest and least developed countries world-wide and is currently facing multiple crises with devastating impacts for resident and returnee populations. Thousands of people have been killed or wounded over many years of conflict, and hundreds of thousands have been displaced by the violence. MAG has been successfully working in South Sudan since 2004, to clear landmines/unexploded ordnance and deliver mine risk education to at-risk populations in a constantly challenging environment. Building on MAG’s long experience in the country, this pilot project is expected to make a hugely important contribution to supporting the vulnerable women, men, girls and boys to settle safely and to build their lives and generate their livelihoods in safety.

About the role:

With South Sudanese refugees in Uganda currently facing significant cuts to their rations as a result of funding cuts to WFP and UNHCR, the time has never been more right to carry out this cross-border work. More refugees are crossing back and forth to South Sudan in search of food and livelihood opportunities to sustain their families, but have little or no awareness of which areas are contaminated with Explosive Ordnance or how to recognise dangerous items if they are found.

With more refugees likely to move out of Uganda and IDPs within South Sudan likely to move into MAG’s areas of operation, MAG would like to support partners – UNHCR, WFP, NGOs & CSOs on both sides of the border to better understand the landmine situation in several border districts in South Sudan.

This is a significant opportunity for the right Project Manager to lead on a crucial pilot project in our South Sudan programme, aimed at increasing awareness about the mine and explosive ordnance contamination in South Sudan. Reporting to the Technical Operations Manager, the Project Manager will be responsible for leading on the set up and management of the cross-border project. You will work closely with partner organisations in Uganda and relevant authorities to identify and understand the critical explosive ordnance contamination in MAG’s current areas of operation in South Sudan, identify the needs for explosive ordnance risk education (EORE) for South Sudanese refugee communities in Uganda, and bring key informants to the area of operations for follow-on non-technical survey (NTS). You will also work closely with the MAG’s security, technical and community liaison teams in South Sudan to implement and carry out this project. It is envisaged that the role will be split approximately 70/30 South Sudan/Uganda.

About you:

The successful candidate will need a minimum of 5 years’ management-level experience working in the humanitarian sector on refugee and cross-border issues, ideally in a conflict / post conflict environment. The candidate should be able to demonstrate the ability to work independently with minimum supervision, as much of this role will be undertaken at a distance from the role manager and support team. Experience managing a full project cycle, including baseline assessment, planning, delivery, reporting and M&E is essential. The candidate should have experience of conducting gender/age appropriate needs or risk assessments in order to design and implement appropriate interventions, as well as in-depth experience of participatory research techniques and community-based and led approaches. The successful candidate will also have proven ability to manage a range of key relationships with host state governments, UN, local authorities and NGOs including Refugee and Women’s organisations.

In line with our policy of promoting gender balance within the programme, we would strongly welcome applications from female candidates.
