YOUR ROLE Your position involves management responsibility for 24 highly skilled professionals, a third of which are working abroad from our MENA regional office in Tunis and project set ups in Morocco and Ethiopia.

Projects in your department are implemented through the National Human Rights Compliance Programme and tend to be large, long term, with complex management set-ups (i.e in consortia, multi donor pool funds, regional and/ or global) and demanding donor requirements (mainly service contracts).

You appreciate the value of anchoring project work in institutional concepts and methods and seek to expend and build on the virtuous learning relationship between projects, analysis and research.

Your own professional skills – in e.g. state actor partnerships and human rights, programming in a development context, strategizing and management – will be challenged and nourished on a daily basis.

You will become a part of a dynamic team and will bring strategic vision to the department´s work with capacity development in regard to national human rights institutions (NHRIs) and governmental human rights focal points, the human rights and tech agenda, migration and youth and strategic agenda setting on the catalytic role of state actors in national human rights systems.

As department director you will be responsible for consolidating the country presence including the newly established MENA regional hub in Tunis, a recent development that will require structuring and close up management attention.

As a manager, you create a supportive and collaborative working culture in the department, inclusive of colleagues abroad. You appreciate your team´s expertise and can contribute your own.

As department director, you are also part of the international division management group referring to the head of the international division at the Institute.
