Saferworld Better Aid Learning Adviser Jobs in Uganda


The Conflict Sensitivity Resource Facility (CSRF), funded by the British, Swiss, Dutch, and Canadian donor missions, supports the integration of conflict sensitive principles and practices into donor strategies and donor funded
programming in South Sudan.

Conflict sensitivity is a programming approach that emphasises strong contextual analysis and programmatic flexibility to minimise aid’s negative consequences and maximise its
positive impacts.

Conflict sensitivity is particularly important in volatile, conflict-affected contexts where
inadequate understanding of conflict and political dynamics can lead to donors and implementing partners inadvertently exacerbating the conflict.

Key areas of responsibility:

  • Work closely with a range of donors, aid organisations, humanitarian clusters, academics, and other stakeholders in South Sudan to better understand how to improve learning, apply learning, and build institutional memory within the aid sector;
  • Provide advice, guidance, and mentorship to CSRF partners (formally and informally) on
    organisational learning and adaptation;
  • Collaborate with the CSRF’s Capacity Building team during institutional assessments of donors and aid organisations to build understanding of current challenges and opportunities for learning and adaptation;
  • Work closely with the Capacity Building team to develop tools and practices that can help to sustain institutional memory, informal and social learning within the aid sector;
  • Feed into CSRF research and analysis design processes and research Terms of Reference;
  • Support the outreach strategies around CSRF research and analysis activities to help effectively reach target audiences;
  • Design and facilitate learning and reflection events to build understanding on complicated issues facing the aid community in South Sudan;
  • Learn from and contribute to global discussions about learning and adaptation in the aid sector;
  • Lead on the CSRF’s internal learning and evaluation processes and relevant reporting;
  • Lead on data collection and knowledge management for the CSRF;
  • Produce learning papers (or other learning products);
  • Employ the Outcome Harvesting methodology to develop learning from the CSRF’s implementation
    that can inform programmatic shifts over the life of the programme.
