Job description

Overview of CTG GlobalCTG 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 positionThe Stabilization Facility for Libya (SFL) aims to bridge the critical period of transition from initial period of humanitarian relief towards mid- and long-term structural and sector-specific support. It includes time-bound quick interventions at the municipal level that seek to enhance the legitimacy of the Government of National Accord (GNA) within the Libyan population through provision of concrete improvements and peace dividends at the community level through rehabilitation of critical infrastructure, building the capacity of local authorities to address the needs of their population, and enhancing local mediation and conflict resolution capacities and processes. The SFL is Libyan-led, with the Prime Minister or his representative chairing the board jointly with the Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary General, and the activities being implemented in cooperation with Libyan local authorities. The stabilization activities are guided by quick needs assessments and consultations with local authorities and other relevant local stakeholders, such as civil society organizations. The SFL will be initially limited to specific localities depending on available funding, but must be scalable to encompass the entire state territory.

In each municipality in which the SFL works, the Municipal authorities need to ensure that the activities the SFL undertakes, and the way they are delivered, are genuinely inclusive. The Municipality needs to be able to manage its collaboration with the GNA, and its connections with its citizens, to ensure that SFL investments are delivered efficiently, technically soundly, and in a conflict-reducing manner. This requires careful coordination with other initiatives in the municipality.

Since municipal capacity for inclusive local planning, coordination, monitoring and communication may be limited, the SFL has scope to boost capacity where required. Such assistance should support a longer-term vision of capacity development, but will operate to the SFL timetable (not more than twelve months in a location) so will deliver instead an immediate increase in local capacity.
Role objectives1. Development of local processes for coordination with others involved in the sectors where SFL is working in Sirte and Sebha, and assistance with their implementation;
2. Development of processes for liaison with Ministry of Planning;
3. Development of local processes for ensuring coherent communication between the SFL’s work under Output 1, work by other external partners, work by Government, and social actions (including the SFL’s local responsible partner under Output 3);
4. Development of local processes for Municipal consultation of citizens, drawing on support from SFL partners working under Output 3 and building those insights into Municipal systems.

 Periodic convening of communications coordination meetings including the Municipal communications Department, SFL field team, Output 3 partner, other external partners, and if possible MoP Communications Department, to agree key messages and media opportunities ahead;

4. Develop local processes for Municipal consultation of citizens, drawing on support from SFL partners working under Output 3 and building those insights into Municipal systems, focusing on achievement of the following results:

 Support, advice, training and direct delivery of Municipal capacity to consult citizens in an inclusive manner.
