About International Alert

For over 30 years, International Alert has been working to build positive peace and reduce violence amongst communities.

Alert operates in Tunisia, since 2012, where we address social tensions by promoting the inclusion of excluded and marginalised groups. We support economic, social, and cultural rights, including the respect of human rights, and access to health, water and education. We work to address violence in society, including gender-based violence. We have a sub-national presence in the governorate of Kasserine in the centre-west and in the governorate of Tataouine in the south-east, in addition to our Tunis national office. We focus on the local level in marginalised regions and our presence on the ground offers a depth to our projects and has facilitated the development of partnerships with a wide variety of actors, such as local authorities, youth, and civil society organisations. Our work adopts a bottom-up approach involving disadvantaged groups, particularly youth and women, to increase their capacities to constructively engage on public policies and advocate for economic, social, and political rights.

Job Purpose

The purpose of this job is to have a team member who can manage, coordinate, and supervise the project aimed at reducing gendered state and societal violence experienced by young people in Tunisia. The Project Manager will oversee project activities, coordinate with project partners, and provide technical expertise to inform the project’s direction. The project manager will work closely with two project officers in two regions, providing specialist professional or technical expertise in the interpretation and operational application of peacebuilding projects, with a particular emphasis on gender to achieve strategic objectives. The Project Manager will be responsible for ensuring the quality and effective delivery of the projects, delivering high quality reports, maintaining relationships, and communicating with local partners and authorities related to the projects.

They will also be expected to demonstrate a commitment to Alert’s values and ethics, key peacebuilding principles such as Do No Harm and conflict sensitivity, as well as safeguarding best practices and policies.

About the project

This 24-month project targets marginalized young people, civil society, and local media organizations in Tunisia. The project aims to address gendered violence experienced by young people in marginalized areas and enhance the capacity of 80 direct beneficiaries (young men and women in Tataouine and Kasserine) to advocate and address these issues with local authorities and their communities.

Young people will play a leading role in the project, receiving training and support alongside local media organizations to produce content focusing on the challenges and violence faced by young people, with their active involvement. They will also be supported in developing online advocacy campaigns, including creative products such as films and artwork, and engaging in constructive dialogue with local authorities to address violence.

The ultimate outcome of the project is a reduction in gendered violence experienced by young men and women in the target communities of Kasserine and Tataouine. The intermediate outcomes include:

  • Increased visibility of gendered violence faced by young men and women, reaching 1100 individuals.
  • Improved sense of community belonging and better community perceptions among young men and women in Kasserine and Tataouine, challenging gendered and class-based stereotypes, benefiting 1200 individuals.
