The Shaikh Group (TSG) is seeking to hire a full-time Political Officer to join the team working on its Syria Track II Dialogue Initiative. Through this project, TSG has facilitated wide-ranging consultations with hundreds of influential Syrians from across the country’s political and social divides, allowing these parties to build trust and generate consensus around ideas for preventing conflict and advancing a political settlement. In 2019, the Initiative has focused on questions surrounding governance within different zones of Syria. This includes a dedicated series of Track II discussions among key constituencies from northeast Syria, aiming to develop political understandings on measures to introduce more sustainable, inclusive governance and security arrangements for those areas.
We are looking for a Political Officer to play an integral role in the design and delivery of these activities in support of mediation and peacebuilding in Syria. The Political Officer will report to the Syria Team Leader and will contribute directly to shaping the substantive direction of the project, facilitating workshops, and engaging with Syrian and international stakeholders at all levels.
Location: flexible (within Europe / Middle East).
Salary: commensurate with experience.
Start date: ASAP
