We want a world where the human rights of all are respected and where everyone can live in equality and freedom: a world where global justice and equity are assured and established regardless of people’s sexual orientations, gender identities, gender expressions and sex characteristics (SOGIESC).

ILGA Oceania has funding to advocate for the decriminalisation of activity on the grounds of a person’s SOGIESC across the Pacific region. It is seeking a suitably skilled and experienced consultant to manage the program across the region.

You will deliver regional program management activities to achieve project outcomes including:

  • defining the decriminalisation project’s scope and creating an implementation plan
  • developing a monitoring and evaluation framework
  • conducting extensive stakeholder engagement with a diverse range of Pasifika partners
  • conducting research
  • developing program and campaign resources
  • project logistics including managing the budget, regular reporting and data collection.

This consultancy requires a five-day per-week commitment until December 2024. Depending on funding, there may be an opportunity for consultancy renewal.

  • strong relationship-building skills and communication skills across a range of stakeholders

  • prior success in delivering sustainable results for improved outcomes for intervened populations
  • well-developed project management and operational skills, including program design and delivery, research, monitoring and evaluation, finance and reporting
  • fluency in English
  • intermediate computer literacy.

You have presence, gravitas, humility, and empathy in engaging with people from a variety of backgrounds and sensitivity to issues relating to diversity, gender equity, and human rights.
