Part – time position, Tunisia Office

1. Background

In Tunisia, Alert supports the democratic transition process by promoting the inclusion of excluded and marginalised groups since 2012.

We bring together civil society organisations to identify and tackle the challenges facing young people, women and those in the interior of the country, among others. This includes identifying ways in which they can work with political leaders, government representatives and the international community to address these challenges.

Our work is important because it helps to strengthen civil society’s skills in advocacy, conflict resolution and analysis of development needs in marginalised areas, which are vital if they are to support a peaceful and inclusive political transition in the country.

Currently, Alert Tunisia is implementing a project funded by the European Union focusing on border governance in Kassrine, Jendouba, Mednine, and Tataouine. It is also conducting a project on Participatory Budgeting in Ettadamon district in Tunis. In both projects, Alert organizes dialogue forums, plans advocacy campaigns, undertakes research, and launches pilot projects. In all four major axes, we need a communication and advocacy consultant to sharpen the publicity of Alert in Tunisia and assist in the advocacy component. In order to work out a clear working plan, the consultant will need to be in close contact with all the Programme Staff.
