Violence & Conflict Assessment Team Leader, PEARL
Violence & Conflict Assessment Team Leader, PEARL – HRO-417
Consultancy position, from November 2023 – May 2024, remote, with fieldwork in Kosovo.
The Team Leader will manage a team of international and local experts in conducting a comprehensive assessment of conflict dynamics in Kosovo. The Team Leader will provide technical leadership and oversight of all aspects of the activity. This includes leading the assessment’s design and implementation, production of deliverables, client and stakeholder engagement, and day-to-day management of the team to ensure high-quality services and outputs that meet the client’s needs.
The Team Leader will work closely with the Peacebuilding, Evaluation, Analysis, Research, and Learning (PEARL) Task Order Manager, Violence and Conflict Assessment (VCA) Specialist, Senior Learning & Outreach Specialist, and Integrity Home Office Activity Management Unit to ensure that the assessment is planned and implemented in accordance with Integrity standard operating procedures and PEARL’s analytical and communications standards.
The Team Leader will also work with the VCA Specialist and Senior Learning & Outreach Specialist to design and facilitate a VCA training and co-design workshop with USAID/Kosovo. Integrity is leading the PEARL Activity for the USAID Bureau for Conflict Prevention and Stabilization’s Center for Conflict and Violence Prevention (CPS/CVP). Through PEARL, Integrity is conducting a VCA for USAID/Kosovo.
Evolving conflict dynamics between Kosovo-Serbian and Kosovo-Albanian communities are currently impacting USAID reconciliation activities and the broader Mission portfolio in Kosovo. Therefore, the findings and recommendations from this assessment will impact USAID/Kosovo’s approach to current and future reconciliation activities led by the Democracy and Governance Office.
The assessment will also analyze institutional and systemic factors, social patterns and historical grievances that continue to prevent the full engagement of Kosovo’s multiethnic society in the political process. Integrity is recruiting an experienced Team Leader who is available beginning in November 2023.
While initial LOE in November-December 2023 can be flexible, the Team Leader should be able to commit an average of 80% LOE between January-May 2024. This position can be based remotely but will require substantial time in Kosovo to co-facilitate a workshop and lead in-person fieldwork.
Closing date for applications: 08 December 2023. However, we will review candidates on a rolling basis and the vacancy may be filled before this deadline. We encourage early applications. Applications without a tailored cover letter will not be considered.
