  • support community organising, led by trans and intersex people globally
  • raise visibility and awareness on (SO)GIESC issues within the feminist movement(s)
  • provide a feminist and queer analysis on how gender backlash effects (SO)GIESC rights and can be countered

The position

The role of the Programme Officer will be to cover predominantly sex characteristics and intersex aspects of the GIESC Programme in close cooperation with the Senior Programme Officer of the GIESC programme and under the supervision of the Director of Programmes. The role requires to work closely with intersex communities and organisations across the globe. The GIESC Programme is supervised by the Director of Programmes and works with trans and intersex communities alike.

ILGA World’s work in these contexts is highly collaborative with our members and trans and intersex communities worldwide. In our advocacy work we seek to connect national level activists and global level UN human rights mechanisms.

The successful candidate will have to be able to navigate intersex community spaces, as well have a sound background in advocacy work. Being able to offer a solid feminist analysis of our issues and having worked on gender equality is a plus.

The ideal candidate will start working in May 2021.

In a challenging media landscape where the threat of nuclear weapons is often overlooked, this is an opportunity for a committed and talented person to be a part of an effort to shift towards a society that moves away from accepting weapons of mass destructions and prioritizes human security.
