Job Description

The Security and Justice Program Manager is part of the Executive Team, our highest level of management. This role has responsibility for leading our work around the world on security and justice issues, with priority on countering violent extremism and expanding the rule of law. You can live wherever you like and travel will be required.

This role demands someone who is smart, intrinsically motivated, worldly and interested in hard challenges. The Security and Justice Program has a track record of delivering consulting services and a penchant for producing novel insights into areas such as violent extremism. In 2017 we are investing in expanding your team and scaling up services that donors have told us are required. You will have overall responsibility for program performance and the support of everyone in the Enterprise to develop our long-term vision and impact. This includes leading fundraising for the Program. As a member of the Executive Team, you also provide input and have responsibility for corporate strategy overall.

Our Security and Justice Program consists of:

  • Traditional development consulting assignments, such as in program design and evaluation.
  • Self-funded research and development projects to learn and extend services to marginalised people.
  • Long-term service development projects in areas such as training, strategic communications and community-based security initiatives.

Priority countries for the Security and Justice Program in 2017 are Indonesia, Afghanistan and Myanmar, but the program’s geographic reach extends beyond this and in 2016 we implemented activities in a dozen countries. Donors are primarily United Nations agencies and national government aid agencies. We implement alone and in partnership with other development actors.

To excel in this role, you will start with more than 10 years of experience on international security and justice issues. You have experience of fundraising and have done consulting work that was assessed positively. You want a leadership role and you like the idea of having autonomy to pursue a vision. You have a track record of supervising others effectively. You have ideas about what works well in this industry and you have seen opportunities to to do much better. You look forward to leading an entrepreneurial program as it grows - you will have a diverse set of tasks that demands a global vision while requiring your focus on activity delivery as the team develops. You will be motivated by an Enterprise performance framework focused on social impact.
