    The technical competencies required for this post are

  • Core Competencies

    To be successful, the candidate should be able to demonstrate the following competencies:

  • Communication (level II)
  • Working with People (level II)
  • Drive for results (level I)
  • Relating and networking (level I)
  • Applying technical expertise (level II)
  • Creating and innovating (level I)
  • Background

    Female Genital Mutilation and Cutting (FGM/C) is a manifestation of gender inequalities persisting in the Ethiopian society and of the lower status of women and girls compared to men and boys. FGM/C widespread in Ethiopia, with a national prevalence of 65 percent (EDHS 2016), but the highest prevalence is in Somali region (99 per cent) as per 2016 EDHS). Also, the median age of first marriage in Somali region is 18.1 years amongst women aged 20-49 years. Similarly, the practice of child marriage is high in the region with a rate of 49.4% for the age group 20-24 which shows that 1 out of 2 girls are married as child. Physical and sexual violence against girls and women takes place across the country, with strong regional variation, and it is another manifestation of the gender disparities.

    In line with the global and national results frameworks (including theory of change, situation assessment, results frameworks and indicator definitions), UNICEF, in collaboration with the Regional Bureau of Women and Children Affairs (BoWCA), Bureau of Justice (BoJ) and Bureau of Education (BoE) and the federal Ministry of Women, Children Affairs (MoWCA) is working to address Harmful Traditional Practices (HTPs) such as FGM/C and child marriage. This is achieved through a mix of strategies aligned to the theory of change such as capacity building, service delivery, social mobilisation, social norms and Behaviour Change Communication (BCC). This is also done through strengthened partnerships with Civil Society Organisations and Faith Based Organisations, such as the Islamic Affairs Supreme Council. Emphasis will also be on strengthening routine administrative data collection systems of government that include reporting on FGM/C, Child Marriage, justice and violence at large, building on the work that UNICEF has been doing on strengthening data collection systems and investments in the One Stop Centres, in several regions including in Somali.

    Justification

    Over the past three years substantial results were achieved in Somali region through the generous support of several donors including the UNICEF Luxembourg National Committee on accelerating action to end FGM/C; and DFID for a child justice project that included support for ending harmful traditional practices (notably child marriage and FGM/C) and violence against children (thorough establishment of referral pathways and a One Stop Centre for quality and accessible response services for violence against children and women).

    To realize the commitment that the government of Ethiopia made at the Girl’s summit in 2014 to eliminate e FGM/C and child marriage by 2025 (the government target) and the SDG target of 2030, it is recognized that accelerated efforts are necessary and additional technical support is required to further strengthen the quality and reporting of results and accelerate efforts. Accelerated effort is also necessitated given the increased expectations of resource partners of UNICEF Ethiopia to deliver results against the two UN Joint Programmes on FGM/C and child marriage. Given the large number of girls and women at risk in Ethiopia (noting the large size of the population and increasing population), it is evident that dedicated support is required. Therefore, this proposal is to recruit child protection officer (TA) at NOB level for a period of 12 months, starting from April 1st 2018.

    Specific Tasks

    The child protection officer will provide technical, operational, administrative, monitoring and reporting support throughout the programing in sectoral work-plans related to the child marriage and FGM/C work plans specifically, and will facilitate the linkages and with other child protection programme (i.e. violence against children and justice for children).

    ABOUT GOAL IN ETHIOPIA

    GOAL has been working in Ethiopia for over 30 years, towards ensuring the poorest and most vulnerable, and those affected by humanitarian crises have access to the fundamental rights of life, including but not limited to adequate shelter, food, water and sanitation, healthcare and education. GOAL Ethiopia implements a range of multi-sectoral development, resilience and humanitarian responses, targeting refugees, internally displaced communities, vulnerable chronically poor pastoralist and rural small holder farmers, street-connected children and youth, and communities affected by humanitarian and sudden onset emergencies – primarily drought, flooding, disease and conflict. GOAL works closely with communities and local Government, addressing issues of poverty, building capacity to respond to shocks and stresses, and helping to prevent and mitigate the impact of disasters.

    The programme has a strong focus on the nutrition, health, WASH, food security, and economic development sectors, incorporating aspects of resilience building, systems strengthening, behavior change and inclusion within our approaches. Gender and child protection are mainstreamed throughout all programming. Accountability to communities, project participants and all stakeholders is an integral element of all responses. GOAL Ethiopia operates a country-wide response, currently operational in Oromiya, Somali, Afar, Gambella, SNNP and Addis Ababa.

    GOAL envisages a world where poverty and hunger no longer exist, where communities are resilient and prepared for seasonal shocks, where structural and cultural barriers to growth are removed and where every man, woman and child, has equal right and access to resources and opportunities.

The ACDP will work closely both with well-motivated and experienced managers in the field and at head office supporting GOAL programmes.

    GOAL has an ambitious expansionist strategy and the ACDP is responsible for overseeing the development and submission of Donor proposals including consortium applications. A significant element of the ACDP role will be to build GOAL’s reputation with key Donors and partners, and develop GOAL’s portfolio of long-term development funding.

    In additional to overseeing the programmatic, strategic and technical elements of operations, the ACDP will work closely with all departments and is expected to have a clear understanding of all facets of operations, including finance, logistics, HR, procurement, and Donor compliance, to ensure programmes are in line with Government, Donor, and GOAL rules and regulations.

    The holder of this post must possess strong leadership skills with the ability to maintain a broad perspective. She/he will undertake innovative approaches, be agile in the conceptualization of new programme ideas and will be well versed in strategic thinking and planning. She/he will also have ability to juggle multiple priorities under tight deadlines, and to calmly and diplomatically deal with unexpected events impacting programme operations.
