Régions concernées par cette opportunité: Tunis

Location: Tunis, Tunisia

Start date: Mid-September to mid- October 2016

Duration: 30 to 36 months

Salary: Negociable

The Programme:

The British Council, together with the European Union National Institutes for Culture (EUNIC), has launched an EU-funded programme to support the Government of Tunisia in its ongoing cultural reform programme. The ambition is to support the restructuring of the Tunisian cultural sector, in order to maximize its strategic potential as a vehicle for social, civic and economic development.

The programme aims to contribute to the consolidation of democracy and economic prosperity in Tunisia by seeking to make culture a powerful vector of social cohesion at the local, regional and national levels.

The purpose is to boost a local collaborative approach and to contribute to the emergence of a cultural and social ecosystem in which all stakeholders (citizens, civil society, private sector and public institutions) have their place and are involved, thereby contributing actively. A process of strengthening local capacities for cultural and social awareness raising, creativity, cultural management and cultural entrepreneurship will be initiated for this purpose.

The specific objectives of the programme, based in Tunis (Tunisia), aim to:

  • Promote cultural diversity and access to culture in Tunisia, notably through significant subsidy of regional cultural initiatives, targeting in particular vulnerable populations such as women and young people;
  • Support the freedom of expression and creation – particularly among the young – by means of innovative trans-sectorial projects, increased international exposure and knowledge-sharing. The ambition is in line with the specific objectives of the programme of the British Council/EUNIC as set out in the EU’s programmatic document.

The programme will be based on a frame of grants to be allocated and to be implemented through a series of Call for Proposals launched during the duration of the programme, with a thematic and decentralized approach. The grant programmes will meet the needs of the independent Tunisian cultural sector, cultural operators, civil society at large, and individual artists. They will also provide support for the setup of new networks and the strengthening of existing initiatives or networks.

The Role:

We are seeking a Grant Expert/Project Manager with significant experience in the setting up, managing and monitoring of grant-funded projects, particularly in civil society reinforcement, as well as professional experience in the Arab world – ideally Tunisia.

Overall Tasks:

The grant manager will be responsible for the implementation, selection, technical appraisal, performance assessment and all day-to- day management of the allocated grants. The grants manager will work in close collaboration with the team leader, the communication manager and the financial manager.

Specific tasks involved are:

  • Defining the thematic objectives of the Grants Calls for Proposals content in line with the programme
  • Co-organising information and training workshops on the programme content and Call for Proposals targeting all relevant operators and stakeholders
  • Organising the evaluation process (including budgets and log frames) and selection evaluation Committees

  • Providing constructive feedback to all successful and unsuccessful applicants
