The Shaikh Group (TSG) is seeking to hire a full-time Political Officer to join the team working on its Track II Dialogue for Mutual Security in the Middle East. Through this project, TSG has facilitated wide-ranging consultations and dialogue among former officials and senior experts from the “global powers” – the United States, Europe, China, Russia and India – as well as key Middle Eastern countries. The Dialogue for Mutual Security, through a flexible geometry of informal diplomatic and dialogue efforts – some discrete in nature and involving a small number of interlocutors, others more public – seeks to contribute ideas toward defusing tensions in the Middle East region short- to medium-term, and to develop building blocks for mutual regional security over the longer term.
We are looking for a Political Officer to play an integral role in the design and delivery of the project’s diplomatic and dialogue efforts. The Political Officer will report to the Project Director and will contribute directly to shaping the substantive direction of the project, facilitating dialogues, engaging with international and regional stakeholders involved, advocating ideas at the Track I level, supporting public outreach (where appropriate), and fundraising.
Location: flexible (within Europe / Middle East).
Salary: commensurate with experience.
Start date: 1 October 2020
To apply, please submit a motivation letter and CV by 07 September to: [email protected]
