Job description

CTG OverviewCTG stands for Committed To Good. With an ethical approach at the heart of all that we do, it is a description that makes us proud. Respect for the fundamental human rights of our staff, and those our staff encounter, is a cornerstone of our values.

Overview of position
To respond to the many challenges people in Libya are facing, our client approach is to put the country on a more robust development path by helping the local authorities to restore security, essential services delivery and livelihoods opportunities. With fund from the European Union, our client has started the project “Strengthening Local Capacities for Resilience and Recovery.” A three-years initiative that is being implemented in close cooperation with national and international partners. ‘The European Union and our client are working together to support local authorities in Benghazi with the aim of strengthen their capacities to serve the people through:
Programme Outputs
Output 1. Local Capacities for Service Delivery
The project is supporting local institutions to improve sustainable access to health, education, water, electricity, sanitation – and socio-economic recovery for the whole population, with special attention to vulnerable groups.
Output 2. Strengthen community security and local model police
Libyan’s formal justice system has been damaged over the past years, with more and more people relying on informal justice and security arrangements. However, studies indicate that Libyans crave the restoration of state in an independent judiciary.  The project works with rule of law institutions, including the police, to manage the impact of irregular migration, protect the rights of migrants, and introduce deterrents to abuses of rights.
Output 3. Livelihoods and local economic recovery/development
The project is identifying areas of potential economic growth and support economic recovery strategies which will help to stabilize income generation, emergency employment, and the reintegration of migrants, IDPs, and returnees; as well as create sustainable and decent jobs.
