Well Grounded is hiring an Organisation Development Practitioner
We are looking for an exceptional person who understands what makes a community group, a non-governmental organisation or an activist group effective and who can share that with organisations in forest countries in Africa.
You will be able to help African civil society organisations (CSOs) to get the nuts and bolts in place so that they can get on with delivering their real objectives – positive changes for the environment and local communities. Your sound knowledge of organisation development will enable African CSOs to grow and improve their work, making the links between the work they do with communities on the ground and changing policy at a national level. You have a passion for the issues and you understand how to convert that passion into effective action, backed up by solid evidence and communicated clearly. You will be ready and willing to travel extensively, particularly within the Congo Basin and Liberia, to develop and direct your own programme of work and to coordinate with other team members and client organisations to make it as effective as possible.
You would be based in Yaoundé, Cameroon, working with civil society organisations throughout the Congo Basin and possibly also West Africa. We are looking for someone to join us as of January 2016.
Closing date: Before 10 am BST (9 am GMT) on Monday October 5th 2015
