***  From Bill Ryerson:

1.)  Global Coordinator, Girls Not Brides, London, UK  – Last Week To Apply

See: http://girlsnotbrides.org/were-recruiting-global-partnership-coordinator/1756/

Girls Not Brides is seeking an experienced, energetic and committed Global Coordinator to lead a small team in supporting and coordinating the Partnership’s global drive towards a world without child marriage. Closing date for applications: 6pm GMT on Monday 21 May 2012 An exciting opportunity to lead a dynamic global initiative   Initiated by The Elders, Girls Not Brides brings together a broad range of non-governmental and civil society organisations from across the world working to address child marriage at the grassroots, national and global levels. The Partnership works to empower those seeking to end child marriage, to raise awareness of the harmful impact of this practice and potential solutions, and to call for urgent global action.   The Global Coordinator will lead a London-based secretariat of five people in their work with Girls Not Brides members to accelerate efforts to reduce and ultimately end child marriage. The successful candidate will play a pivotal role in the growth of Girls Not Brides and its impact on this neglected issue.   Every year, an estimated 10 million girls worldwide are married before they turn 18, usually with no say in when or whom they marry. Child brides are almost always forced to leave school when they marry, cutting their education short and trapping them and their children in poverty. Child marriage also threatens girls’ lives and health through early pregnancy and childbirth.   Since Girls Not Brides launched in September 2011, more than 100 organisations from over 30 countries have joined the Partnership, with a shared commitment to help girls at risk of child marriage realise their full potential. The Partnership has helped to build considerable impetus on child marriage, including increased media attention and greater inclusion of child marriage on the agenda of high-level meetings on development-related issues.   The ideal candidate will have experience with taking an overlooked global or policy issue to higher visibility and generating results-oriented action. S/he will have the instincts, sensitivity and know-how to encourage diverse people and groups to coalesce around a cause and join forces for demonstrable change. The candidate will need to be equally at ease with marshalling the substance of global advocacy strategies and interacting with grassroots change-makers. S/he will be able to ensure that the work of the Girls Not Brides continues to expand and have impact, often working behind the scenes with Partnership members and others.   Girls Not Brides is member-driven and has a simple structure. The work of the Global Coordinator and secretariat will be guided and supported by an Advisory Committee representing Partnership members. Funding for the early phases of Girls Not Brides’ work has been raised by Partnership members. As Girls Not Brides and its work continue to grow, the Global Coordinator will need to renew and mobilise new resource commitments to sustain and expand the effort.   Responsibilities • Develop and implement the Girls Not Brides’ strategy and campaign plans in collaboration with members; • Liaise with Girls Not Brides members to identify strategic opportunities and coordinate and support advocacy efforts, including convening meetings of members; • Build, support and drive joint advocacy and campaign activities to increase public and political support for ending child marriage, by harnessing the complementary expertise, talents and resources of different Girls Not Brides members and partners; • Work with the secretariat to facilitate learning networks and information-sharing throughout the Partnership; • Solidify and expand national and regional Girls Not Brides networks, with an emphasis on leadership from those regions most impacted; • Communicate information about Girls Not Brides to external actors (such as government officials, journalists, international organisations, and donors); • When appropriate, represent Girls Not Brides in meetings with external actors; • Identify and facilitate the involvement of potential new members, partners and donors; • Further strengthen the Partnership’s structure as an independent and self-sustaining entity, including ensuring on-going funding; • Supervise and provide day-to-day guidance to the secretariat, which includes a Communications Officer, a Programme Officer, a Partnership Adviser for Africa and two interns. Recruit and manage consultants and other additional capacity as required; and • Forge new alliances and create champions for ending child marriage across the public, private and NGO sectors, and across organisations working in different areas (health, education, livelihoods, etc.). Requirements • Demonstrated experience and qualifications in political science, public policy, sociology, anthropology, international development or another relevant field; an understanding of child marriage and/or gender policy issues is desirable; • Demonstrated ability to develop and manage effective international policy initiatives and advocacy strategies; campaigning experience is a plus; • Demonstrated experience and expertise in working with and building coalitions, particularly across regions in Asia, Africa and/or Middle East. • Keen political antennae, agility across cultural environments, and diplomatic finesse; • Interpersonal skills and qualities that enable her/him to empower and inspire others to greater effort, commitment and action; • Awareness of the importance of media messaging and media relations; prior experience in using communications as a tool for social change is desirable; • Experience working with minimal supervision and delivering the utmost with a small staff team; • A keen eye for accuracy and detail; • Highly effective administration skills including computing and budget management; fundraising and events planning experience is a plus; • Excellent written and spoken English; proficiency in another relevant language, such as Arabic or French is highly desirable; The Girls Not Brides secretariat is currently based in the London office of The Elders. A competitive salary and benefits package will be offered to the successful candidate.   How to apply   Please send a concise CV and one page cover letter demonstrating how you meet the criteria for this position to Jobs@GirlsNotBrides.org, clearly stating “Global Coordinator” in the subject line. Due to the large number of applications expected, only short-listed candidates will be contacted. Closing date for applications: 6pm GMT on Monday 21 May 2012.
