Internal/External Vacancy Announcement #173/2019

GIZ- AU Program


As a federal Government owned company, GIZ supports the Federal Government in achieving its goals in international cooperation for sustainable development.

The African Union (AU) aims to promote the political, economic and social integration of its 55-member states. With twelve organs, the AU is represented at various African locations.

The African Union Commission (AUC) serves as the secretariat of the AU and is responsible for development cooperation.

After the European Union, the Federal Government is the largest bilateral and thus a strategically important and prominent partner of the AU and has anchored this in 2015 in its own framework agreement with the AU.

The GIZ Office for the AU is responsible for implementing the pan-African programs with the AU and its bodies in four priority areas - peace and security, good governance / migration, regional economic integration, education and employment, and agriculture - on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the Foreign Office (AA) and other clients.

The continental portfolio, which currently has over 140 employees and 50 seconded experts, implements Program activities with an annual volume of approximately € 50 million in more than 35 countries in Africa.

The projects are mulit-country programs spanning several locations throughout Africa. The GIZ AU Office, in addition to GIZ's regional offices, is assuming overarching tasks for the management and quality assurance of its rapidly growing portfolio.

Due to the continental positioning, business policy questions on cost-effectiveness and efficiency, as well as new perspectives through digitization, are being re-examined, e.g. to optimize continental tenders and personnel recruitment.

We are looking for an experienced employee who, with creative will, as well as openness to piloting and innovation, contributes to the further development of this dynamic GIZ portfolio and supports us in making the GIZ office at AU efficient and cost-effective.
