Managers and Advisors In Reconstruction and Transitional Aid

As a federal enterprise, GIZ supports the German Government in achieving its objectives in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development.
For our operations at various locations worldwide, we are looking for
Managers and advisors in reconstruction and transitional aid
JOB-ID: 25371
Field of activity
Millions of people around the world face an acute threat to their livelihood from war or natural disasters, and need rapid assistance. Once social, physical and institutional infrastructure has been destroyed, immediate action becomes more difficult. This presents an acute obstacle to sustainable long-term development.
To alleviate the most acute hardship GIZ, on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), currently implements measures to secure people’s basic needs as part of special initiatives. At the same time, GIZ works towards medium and long term development by strengthening its partner countries through development-oriented and structure-building measures for food security, infrastructure, health facilities, schools and disaster risk management. To support partner countries in making the swiftest possible transition to self-reliant and sustainable development, GIZ strengthens their structures for self-help and self-management. To create an enabling environment for long-term development, we promote aspects such as the skills and abilities of state and non-governmental partners.
Your tasks
  • Establishing an efficient and appropriate project infrastructure;
  • Developing institutional structures for strengthening local government, advising and supporting representatives of the municipalities and civil society in coordinating the reconstruction measures;
  • Conceptual planning, implementation and steering of reconstruction measures;
  1. Rehabilitating and building the basic social infrastructure (wells, roads, accommodation, schools, health centres, etc.);
  2. Promoting agricultural and non-agricultural sources of income;
  3. Developing local organisational structures and training other target groups;
  4. Supporting processes in conflict management and in peace and reconciliation processes at local level;
  • Coordinating and maintaining contacts with local, national and international institutions and organisations.
Your profile
You have a university degree in agriculture, agricultural economics, social science, political science, geography or civil engineering. Experience in the field of emergency aid measures or humanitarian aid would be an advantage. You have at least three years of professional experience in developing countries, especially in conflict or post-conflict countries. For example, you have experience in working in Banda Aceh, Haiti or Afghanistan. You have already gained experience of organising and running camps for refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs). You are familiar with procedures of supply and distribution of food for refugees and IDPs, and with Shelter and WASH programmes. Experience in implementing large-scale infrastructure measures is desirable, and experience in working with refugees and IDPs would be an advantage.
In particular, you have knowledge on the reconstruction of social and productive infrastructure and on community development, measures for reintegrating refugees, and local conflict management and peace building.
Alongside your excellent specialist knowledge, you demonstrate a high degree of intercultural expertise and flexibility. You deal confidently with wide-ranging situations and changing demands. You are able to work under pressure and are used to managing teams comprising national and international employees in fragile contexts. You speak English fluently and German very well.
