1. Civil Society & Active Citizenry Strategist – Kenya Programme
As the Civil Society Active Citizenry Strategist, you will lead in the design of the Civil Society & Active Citizenry programme and implementation - piloting innovative programme approaches, building partnerships, coalitions and networks and supporting partners to develop organisational capacity building to deliver high quality women’s rights programmes. You will establish and maintain linkages with other thematic areas and link with Oxfam campaigns, policy influencing and advocacy teams. Occasionally, as required by the programme design, you will manage contracted programme or project staff. A key area of work will be to fundraise for the programme and to generate and manage knowledge resources through linkages with knowledge hubs and other institutions.
2. Consultancy - UEWEA Mechanism for Food Security in Urban Areas
The UEWEA Consortium is commissioning a policy brief which will make a case for UEWEA and its adoption by the NCCG, other urban counties in Kenya and worldover. The brief will synthesize existing body of knowledge (research papers, status reports, evaluation reports etc) into a 1000 – 1800 word (3 – 5 pages) advocacy piece that powerfully communicates to a variety of non-technical audiences (including citizens, policy makers, the media etc) the aims and potential (and actual) benefits of the initiative. It will also investigate the cost of non-intervention in food insecurity situations in urban areas, especially Nairobi County and draw lessons from related interventions by governments in other countries, regions, cities – eventhough not related to UEWEA. The brief will also provide policy advice on UEWEA.
