You’ll engage closely with our members, building their research capacity in a facilitative manner, and supporting a community of practice on research.
You will have both sound project management and research skills and an excellent knowledge of child rights and child protection. You will have experience of carrying out participatory research with children, and of capacity building and project management for research. You will have a respectful and empathetic approach to working with civil society organisations, and experience of working in a multicultural setting.
