FHI 360 is currently recruiting for the position of Deputy Chief of Party for an anticipated five-year USAID project in Tunisia that is expected to begin implementation in June 2023.  The overall goal of the Civil Society Activity is to empower Tunisian citizens to act and advocate for specific issues and effect change at the local, regional, and national levels in advancing Tunisia’s development and to build the legitimacy and sustainability of the civil society sector. Interventions will be focused on five to ten thematic areas decided through a participatory approach, over the course of the award, that reflect local priorities, political will, and strong potential to make tangible improvements in the daily lives of citizens. This activity has three main objectives: 1. Increase the engagement and agency of citizens to act and advocate for specific issues of public interest; 2. Strengthen the institutional capacity of civil society organizations to promote positive change on citizen and constituent priorities (based on the organizational mission); and 3. Promote effective partnerships (intra- inter- and multi-sectoral) at local, regional, and national levels (e.g., government, civil society, citizens, private sector) to advance shared development objectives.
