We strive for gender equality, inclusion & diversity, providing fair & equal opportunities for all. We take a zero tolerance approach to corruption and stay true to local labour laws & all local statutory requirements.
  • In operation since 2006, today we are honoured to serve clients in 15 fragile & conflict affected states assisting with disaster relief, peace building, humanitarian aid & development programs through our specialised recruitment, HR management & operational services.

Overview of position:

  • Since 2017, Cabo Delgado, one of the poorest provinces in Mozambique, has been facing an escalating conflict, compounded by a fragile situation of chronic underdevelopment, consecutive climatic shocks & recurrent disease outbreaks. Violent attacks by Non State Armed Groups (NSAGs) have escalated since 2020, heightening protection risks, especially for youth, women & children. NSAG activities & counter offensive operations have forced mass displacement in the province & brought destruction & fear.
  • The government (govt.) of Mozambique has responded with military action & with the support of foreign troops, reclaimed a number of areas which had been occupied by NSAGs. Under these auspices, our client has initiated a stabilization program in July 2021 to assist the govt. of Mozambique in its efforts to reestablish the authority & presence of the state in the reclaimed areas, paving the way for a subsequent safe & voluntary return of the currently displaced populations. Activities under stabilization program aim to rehabilitate public, security & social infrastructures damaged by conflict, boost socio economic recovery, build resilience & social cohesion.
  • Securing & increasing law enforcement presence in the districts regained by the govt. remains fundamental to ensure the safety of returning communities & to reestablish the rule of law. Where NSAG's have attacked, police infrastructures & equipment have been looted, damaged, destroyed & as the police has directly engaged in hostilities, the loss of operational capacity & the human cost of the conflict have hindered the capacity of the police to maintain a presence & protect the population in conflict affected areas.
  • As these infrastructures are progressively rehabilitated, it is paramount that the situation of mutual trust between returning communities & policing actors is improved & that security actors acquire the needed awareness & capacity to better engage with highly vulnerable people, particularly unemployed & marginalized youth, women & IDPs in a post conflict environment.
  • At present, our cleint seeks to recruit a Community Security Dialogue Consultant to support the govt. of Mozambique in building a renewed social contract with the communities affected by the conflict, based on trust & community engagement to support sustainable peace. Activities to be undertaken include stakeholder mapping at provincial, district & community levels, the systematic collection & analysis of data, design & implementation of strategies for participatory community dialogue on issues related to perceptions of security, support for the organization of capacity building activities on community policing for local security forces, support the development of early warning systems at community level.
  • The Community Security Dialogue Consultant will work in partnership with other consultants based in Pemba & under the supervision of the Community Security Officer (based in Pemba). Taking into consideration the nature of the role & our clients stabilization workplan for Cabo Delgado, the Community Security Dialogue Consultant role will include travel to selected communities in Cabo Delgado.
