Center for Civilians in Conflict (CIVIC)
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
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.
