Center for Civilians in Conflict (CIVIC)
Center for Civilians in Conflict (CIVIC) is an international non-profit with offices around the world working to improve protection for civilians caught in conflict zones. CIVIC envisions a world in which no civilian is harmed in conflict. Our mission is to support communities affected by conflict in their quest for protection and strengthen the resolve and capacity of armed actors to prevent and respond to civilian harm. We are advocates who believe that no civilian caught in conflict should be ignored, and advisors who provide practical solutions to preventing and responding to civilian harm. As part of our ambitious five-year goal to champion a significant reduction in conflict-related civilian harm, we are expanding our work and global footprint with plans to soon open a European hub in the Hague in the Netherlands. We will continue our work in Africa and the Middle East and deepen our advocacy with European governments and institutions, NATO, United Nations bodies and Member States, and the United States. At the same time, we will conduct research and explore opportunities for light touch interventions in Latin America, Asia, and North Africa. We count on a diverse and sustainable funding portfolio to implement our programming, including unrestricted funds from global donors such as Open Society Foundations and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency. This year we expect to double our revenue raised from $10M to $20M to continue our vital work.To support our strategic growth, we are seeking to recruit a Senior Director, Programs (SDP) to lead CIVIC’s programmatic pillar, ensuring that CIVIC is continuously innovating and delivering results for civilians in conflict.
As an integral part of the Senior Management Team (SMT), the SDP is responsible for ensuring program quality and impact, adapting CIVIC’s programmatic tools and methodologies to respond to emerging protection risks and opportunities, and expanding the reach of CIVIC’s programs to more civilians in more conflict-affected environments.
Guided by CIVIC’s Strategic Plan (2021 - 2025), the SDP will oversee CIVIC’s regional and thematic programs and work with program staff to strengthen our work on behalf of civilians in conflict. A key part of this role, at the outset, will be improving the cost effectiveness and sustainability of CIVIC’s programs and program structure. When appropriate, the SDP will act as the external face of CIVIC with governments, the media, and the non-profit community.
