The Shaikh Group (TSG) is seeking to hire a full-time Political Officer to join the team working on its Syria 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 2020 and beyond, the Initiative will remain focused largely on issues surrounding governance at the subnational level – in particular, in parts of northeast and northwest Syria – and on the development of political understandings 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 Lead 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: October 2020
To apply, please submit a motivation letter and CV by 15 August to: [email protected]
