CARE is a leading international non-governmental organization (NGO) fighting global poverty through humanitarian relief and long-term development initiatives, and with a specific focus on promoting gender equality, particularly promoting women’s and girls’ rights. As part of its CARE 2020 Program Strategy, CARE is increasingly seeking to multiply impact at all levels including through advocacy activities at regional and national level. In the Middle East and North Africa region (MENA), CARE’s efforts are guided by a Social and Gender Justice Framework which among other things, prioritizes addressing Gender-based violence (GBV) as a programming and advocacy priority. CARE has developed an Impact Growth Strategy for fighting GBV in the region, which will leverage three impact multipliers: accelerating innovation, advocacy and partnerships. The focus of the strategy is on addressing some of the most prevalent forms of GBV in the region which include domestic violence, sexual harassment, and child, early and forced marriage (CEFM).

CARE is seeking a talented individual to take on the position of MENA Regional Advocacy Coordinator for Gender Justice to lead the execution of a regional advocacy strategy to address GBV, build country offices’ capacities to undertake advocacy on GBV and other gender issues and coordinate with partners and key stakeholders to achieve CARE’s impact goals. This regional advocacy strategy on GBV aims to promote strategic and joined up advocacy action amongst CARE’s country offices and partners in the region, with a particular focus on select countries (e.g. Jordan, Egypt, Turkey and the Caucasus region), with the goal of promoting sustainable policy and social change and strengthening the ability of women’s activists and civil society groups to take strategic action.
