Gender Expert (consultant)

PCi is implementing a project aimed at strengthening gender integration across our organisational processes and programmes. The project has two main objectives: (1) to increase awareness and understanding of gender (theory and practice) within PCi; (2) to establish accountability mechanisms within the organisation to ensure that gender integration is achieved, with progress reviewed, learning captured, and new objectives set regularly.

In the inception phase of the project, a group of Gender Focal Points (GFPs) representing different teams were appointed.

PCi is recruiting a Senior Gender Expert on a fixed consultancy basis to provide capacity support and accompaniment to the Gender Focal Points and the wider project team on the gender integration project.

The Consultant will be responsible for designing and facilitating a 1-day on-line training / workshop (to take place ideally in the first half of July 2024) focusing on gender integration:
Day 1: the main objective of day 1 will be for the group to achieve a shared understanding of gender concepts and tools, including agreeing on shared tools, language and learning questions to be explored to strengthen gender integration.
Day 2: the main objective of day 2 will be for the group to identify concrete opportunities and ways to integrate gender into specific processes and projects that different teams work on.
After the workshop, the Consultant will be required to work with individual GFPs and their respective teams to support them in addressing any specific challenges they may be facing to integrating gender into their work.

More specifically, we are looking for candidates with: 

  • Experience of working in the peacebuilding sector and on Gender, Peace and Security
  • Experience in facilitating and leading outcome-focused discussions on gender integration at both organisational and programmatic level
  • Knowledge of most recent gender integration frameworks
  • A strong learning and adaption approach to the process
  • Ability to engage with challenges faced by teams across diverse geographies and contexts
  • Mentoring/coaching experience, and ability to act as a resource to help different teams to engage with new concepts and tools
  • Availability to conduct the workshop in the first half of July (remotely)
  • Willingness to model PCi’s values of inclusion, dialogue and collaboration.
