Technical UCP Officer Jobs Description
Nonviolent Peaceforce (NP) is a dynamic, international non-governmental organisation. We work to reduce violence and protect civilians in countries affected by violent conflict and its aftermath. NP implements programming through the deployment of civilian protection teams to the field. Programming is founded on unarmed civilian protection and is thematically focused on protection in displacement, child protection, gender-based violence protection and inter-communal violence reduction.
The Technical UCP Officer is a member of the programme team for NP South Sudan. This includes supporting NP field teams with the implementing of protection and prevention strategies for vulnerable beneficiaries and relationship-building with local communities, community leaders, and government authorities, as well as with all other relevant protection actors such as NGOs and INGOs, and UN agencies. The Technical UCP Officer will assist with the design and implementation of UCP interventions. This position is roving, and will spend approximately 80% time in the field, with the remaining 20% in Juba.
