Tetra Tech International Development Services (http://www.tetratech.com/intdev) headquartered in Arlington, VA is currently accepting expressions of interest from qualified candidates for a potential Chief of Party position on a USAID funded program in Tunisia.

Project Description:

The purpose of the anticipated five-year, USAID-funded Tunisia Civil Society & Good Governance Activity is to facilitate a productive relationship between civil society and the Government of Tunisia, focusing on three key roles of civil society in a middle-income, democratic country: 1) advocacy/ campaigner (for example advocating for changes in existing laws to facilitate reforms), 2) watchdog (for example, monitoring of reforms and human rights issues), and 3) participant in global governance processes (for example, the open government partnership standards, advisory boards of investment funds, etc.). The program will work nationwide, differentiating between the capacity-building needs of smaller, regional NGOs, Associations, think-tanks and other types of local organizations and more developed, Tunis-based CSOs, creating linkages networks, and platforms for knowledge sharing, partnerships, and joint-action.

Senior Governance/CSO Technical Specialists

Senior Technical Specialists will provide technical and management support to activities within their field of expertise to achieve project outcomes. For each of the positions, the focus will be on engaging with and strengthening Tunis-based and regional civil society organizations (NGOs, Associations, Think Tanks, and other organizations).

Qualified applicants from Tunisia are highly encouraged to apply.

  • Watchdog Specialist:

Responsible for coordinating and implementing technical assistance to civil society organizations to enhance their role as government watchdogs, for example, in the monitoring of reforms and human rights issues.

  • Global Governance Specialist:

Responsible for coordinating and implementing technical assistance to civil society organizations to enhance their participation in global governance practices.
