Director of Policy, Learning and Advisory Services

 FULL TIME  Kommentare deaktiviert für Director of Policy, Learning and Advisory Services
Feb 022021
 

KLICKEN SIE HIER, UM ÄHNLICHE ANGEBOTE ZU SUCHEN

Country: Switzerland
Organization: Interpeace
Closing date: 1 Mar 2021

Background

Interpeace is an international organisation for peacebuilding. Interpeace tailors its approach to each society and ensures that its work is locally designed and driven. Through local partners and its own local teams, Interpeace jointly develops peacebuilding programmes based on extensive consultation and research. Interpeace helps establish processes of change that promote sustainable peace, social cohesion and resilience. The organisation’s work is designed to connect and promote understanding between local communities, civil society, governments and the international community.

Interpeace also assists the international community – especially the United Nations – to play a more effective role in peacebuilding based on the organisation’s expertise in field-based work at the grassroots level. This is achieved primarily through contributing innovative thought leadership and fresh insights into contemporary peacebuilding policy. This assistance to the international community is also achieved through its ‘peace responsiveness’ work, in which Interpeace provides advice and practical support to other international organisations (especially those in the security, development and humanitarian aid sectors) so that they adapt systemically in order that their own work simultaneously addresses conflict dynamics and strengthens peace dynamics.

Interpeace is headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland and has offices around the world.

For more information about Interpeace, please visit www.interpeace.org

Position within the Organisation

The Director of Policy, Learning and Advisory Services is responsible for two key functions:

  • to lead Interpeace’s policy and thought leadership on peacebuilding as well as the organisation’s learning agenda, including monitoring and evaluation; and,
  • to provide strategic direction and oversee the management of Interpeace’s expert advisory services that combine the organisation’s local peacebuilding experience and knowledge with latest international thinking and practice. This includes both ‘peace responsiveness’ and other peacebuilding advice, policy and support provided by the organisation’s in-house advisory team as well as the strategic and capacity-strengthening peacebuilding services provided by external experts in the Interpeace Advisory Team (IPAT).

Through these core responsibilities, the Director contributes to ensuring a strong connection between Interpeace’s field-based peacebuilding programmes and its policy engagement, and also contributes to the creation and promotion more widely of effective contemporary international peacebuilding practice and policy.

The Director is part of the Global Management Team and has close working relationships with all the institutional job families of Interpeace including Programmes, Programme Development and Innovation, Strategic Partnerships, Communications and Operations as well as the Executive Management office. The Director reports to the Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer.

The Director has up to six direct reports at any time. Occasionally, the role may involve supervising temporary consultants.

The Director is also responsible for leading and coordinating Interpeace’s institutional policy agenda and engagement which is advanced through the Policy Working Group (PWG).

Purpose and General Overview

The Director is a leader and senior manager, whose primary role is to inspire, motivate, coordinate and ensure the quality and productivity of work by others in the Policy, Learning and Advisory Services team. In doing so, there is also a need to liaise closely with other leaders and managers in the organisation, particularly to ensure that Interpeace’s field-based work as well as its policy development and thought leadership are well aligned and mutually reinforcing, and to ensure that Interpeace continues to meet the highest possible standards of good governance. To these ends, the Director participates actively and contributes in wider corporate direction-setting, policy-making and decision-making and ownership as a member of the Global Management Team. The Director also fosters the welfare of her/his team.

The Director is responsible for leading and achieving delivery of aspects of Interpeace’s five-year 2021-2025 Strategy relating to policy, learning and advisory services. The Director also contributes to both the design and execution of Interpeace’s annual workplans and budgets which are intended to achieve the goals of the Strategy.

The key domains over which the Director provides strategic guidance and oversight are:

  • Policy and thought leadership
  • Research
  • Learning, including monitoring and evaluation
  • Advisory Services

The Director fosters collaboration between the staff working in each of these domains, and is responsible for identifying and advancing institutional partnerships, income-generation opportunities and other avenues for raising the relevance, profile and impact of Interpeace’s work in these domains.

The Director also fosters the welfare of her/his team taking into account the geographical locations of the team worldwide.

The Director establishes and maintains communication and consultation structures internally within Interpeace, chairing the Policy Working Group.

The Director leads in creating the environment in which the organisation’s strategic direction on its policy, research and learning agendas are developed, finalised and periodically reviewed, ensuring alignment of these agendas with the organisation’s five-year Strategy and decision-making framework. The Director also leads in ensuring delivery of agreed policy, research and learning agendas, ensuring a pipeline of practical content. The learning agenda in particular is advanced through the Director fostering close coordination of her/his team with field-based peacebuilding staff and communications staff.

The Director maintains a wide external network of policymakers and practitioners. The Director represents Interpeace to diverse external audiences and representatives of institutional partners including peacebuilding policymakers, and practitioners in government and intergovernmental, academic and civil society organisations.

Whilst the Director is expected primarily to have strong leadership and management skills, the role-holder is also expected to have and be able to contribute strong domain knowledge of peacebuilding policy and practice.

The role is based in Geneva with occasional travel.
