Job description

CTG OverviewCTG support and manage humanitarian projects in fragile and conflict-affected countries around the world. With past performance in 15 countries – from the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia and Central and South America – we offer a holistic fabric of project management, implementation and support. Skilled in emergency response to crises such as the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, we have the ability to act quickly (crisis response teams can be on the ground in 24 hours) and to establish structured operations in high-risk environments. CTG recruit and manage qualified, skilled teams with extensive experience operating in challenging conditions.
Overview of position
Since the formation of the Federal Government of Somalia, the country has made significant progress towards restoring peace & security.  However, significant destabilizing factors remain. These include, most notably, the extant presence of violent extremist group Al Shabaab, particularly in rural areas, recurrent & unresolved clan, land & resource-based conflicts; weak & nascent institutions & the internal displacement of more than 2 million individuals, particularly to urban centers. 
Whilst the transition, recovery & development needs of Somalia, after almost 3 decades of civic conflict & violent extremism remain a long term, if not generational process, such progress will be unachievable in the absence of solid foundations for peace & security, particularly at community levels. Currently, some areas, such as the Middle & Lower Shabelle regions, remain at risk of deteriorating into clan-based conflict & the strengthening of violent extremist & other militia groups, in the absence of consolidated, strategic support for stability.
Since 2016, our client has been supporting the govt. to lead & for communities to drive transition & recovery processes in areas impacted by displacement, conflict & violent extremism.  These programs, which are implemented through the Recovery & Durable Solutions (RDS) Unit, is intended to promote stability in fragile & displacement affected areas of Somalia as well as the attainment of durable solutions to internal displacement.
Role objectives
Under the direct supervision of the RDS Project Manager & under the overall supervision of the RDS Coordinator in Mogadishu, the incumbent will provide support to planning, coordination & execution of govt. led community projects and stabilization grants to ensure the effective & efficient implementation of durable solutions & stabilization programs in Hirshabelle & Galmudug states.
