Location Tarime & Kahama, Tanzania


Search for Common Ground (SFCG) is an international non-profit organization that promotes peaceful resolution of conflict. With headquarters in Washington, DC and a European office in Brussels, Belgium, SFCG’s mission is to transform how individuals, organizations, and governments deal with conflict – away from adversarial approaches and toward cooperative solutions. SFCG seeks to help conflicting parties understand their differences and act on their commonalities. With a total of approximately 400 staff worldwide, SFCG implements projects from 39 offices in 26 countries, including in Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and the United States. The organisation is an exciting and rewarding place to work, with a dedicated and enthusiastic staff who love their work. You will be joining a highly motivated staff with a good team spirit and there will be opportunities to grow in the role.

SFCG is implementing a project in northern Tanzania to provide conflict resolution and human rights training to Tanzanian Police officials, government officials and communities members, as well as to improve relations between all stakeholders in four mining areas. The Sustainable Business Practice (SBP) Programme Manager will be responsible for providing overall oversight and logistical and technical support to the two field offices located in Tarime (Mara Region) and Kahama (Shinyanga Region), and possibly a third one located in Singida. S/he will be supervised and will report to the SFCG’s Sustainable Business Practice Director (Project Director) based in Dar Es Salaam. The candidate will initially be selected for a three-month temporary period from approximately 1 February – 30 April 2012, with the possibility of further extension depending on the work of the candidate. The project uses an innovative mix of multimedia, training, and community outreach activities to build capacity to resolve mine-community conflict. The SBP Programme Manager will travel between the two – and potential three – field offices as needed, and coordinate and centralize activities, ensuring the implementation of the activities on-time, within budget, and to maximum effect. This includes providing a regular presence with solid local networking contacts with local communities leaders and members, local government representatives, mining company staff in the field, local organizations, and other local key stakeholders, under the guidance of the Sustainable Business Practice Director. The Project Manager will also collaborate closely with SFCG’s SBP team in DC, as well as trainers and other technical experts working on the project.
