Cord is an international charity working with people in highly sensitive and oppressive contexts to transform dysfunctional relationships into those that create peaceful and inclusive societies. Our vision, inspired by the Christian faith, is of a world where all people live in the fullness of peace, have the freedom to flourish and live free from fear. We work towards this through employing and working with people of all faiths and none.
Cord is at an exciting crossroads in its organisational history as it has recently launched a new strategy, Promoting the Power of Peaceful Relationships, building on what it has learnt from its recent programme work and adapting to the new challenges and opportunities that are present in the world today. Cord has recently secured several new sources of funding for projects that will enable it to implement this strategy over the next period across a diverse range of contexts in Asia and Africa.
Cord is looking for someone who is passionate about seeing positive change in our world and can bring strong project management skills to our small and committed team to support in achieving the vision. We first started working in Vietnam in 1967, before moving to Cambodia in the 1970s and Laos in 2011. We have recently been awarded funding from the European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights for an exciting multi-country project designed to support indigenous communities to more effectively organise and work with authorities and private companies to protect their rights. Partners include local civil society organisations, community-based actors, local, provincial and national authorities, associations and networks and private companies.
The ideal candidate will need to have the following skills/experience:
A relevant qualification or equivalent experience in project management (project cycle management, baseline, log frame analysis, theory of change, monitoring and reporting)
At least five years’ experience in project and/or grant management, preferably within the human rights and peacebuilding sector;
Experience of managing multi-country projects
Solid project management skills that include the ability to design and monitor project budgets.
Strong track record of securing funding from both existing and new institutional donors
Knowledge of EU grant management desirable
Strong organisational and project management skills
Excellent writer with meticulous attention to detail
Ability to work independently & proactively
If you have a commitment to Cord’s values and ethos, inspired by the Christian faith, and the drive to help communities live in a more peaceful and inclusive way, then we would like to hear from you.
