The role

1) Background

Defence and security sectors in many countries of the former Soviet Union are undergoing reform and transformation with the aim of achieving a closer alignment with international standards and harmonising governance standards with those prevailing in the Euro-Atlantic community.

Several governments of the region, such as Ukraine and Georgia, have declared and adopted a broad range of bold reform commitments and objectives with the aim to ensure that their defence and security sectors function in a democratically accountable, transparent and efficient manner. Successful security sector reform is essential for ensuring a positive trajectory of the ongoing consolidation of democracy and enhancing regional stability and security. Improved security sector governance is also essential for achieving progress on the path towards a closer integration with the Euro-Atlantic community for those countries which have proclaimed this to be their national objective.

To support the development and implementation of its activities addressing defence and security sector reform in the former Soviet Union, with a particular focus on Ukraine and Georgia, DCAF is recruiting a Project Coordinator to be stationed at its Headquarters in Geneva.

  • Develop budgets and monitor financial aspects of project implementation;
  • Monitor project outcomes and outputs and prepare reports on project implementation;
  • Conduct research on issues relevant to defence and security sector reform and governance to contribute to DCAF publications and knowledge products;
  • Represent DCAF in meetings and relevant fora as assigned and provide substantive input during capacity.

Key qualifications

  • Master’s degree in political science, international relations, law, development, security studies or related fields;
  • Minimum of 7 years of prior work experience, including senior-level experience in the area of institutional capacity building and policy development in the security and defence sector;
  • Strong knowledge of defence and security sector reform and governance issues and challenges in Eastern Europe, in particular in Ukraine, and knowledge of the relevant EU and NATO policy frameworks;
  • Proven experience in project design and grants management;
  • Excellent command of English, proven ability to write and edit complex reports in English;
  • Excellent command of Russian will be considered a distinct advantage;
  • Strong communication and organisational skills;
  • Experience in facilitating policy discussions and capacity building workshops.
  • Swiss or EU citizenship or a valid work permit for Switzerland at the time of application is a pre-requisite.

We offer:

  • a rewarding, dynamic and challenging work experience
