Job Description

Share your expertise with Family Support Centres in Bougainville to strengthen effective medical and wrap-around service provision.

You will provide a post-analysis report with recommendations to address current support issues. With a strong focus on mentoring, you will deliver staff-trainings and facilitate incorporation of recommendations into a work plan.

In this rewarding role you will also work with relevant agencies to establish a coordinated, survivor-centred approach to service delivery.

We are looking for a volunteer with:

– A formal health qualification, ideally related to sexual and gender based violence (SGBV) and reporting/examination

– Significant experience in the SGBV sector

– Understanding of legal/medical procedures for collecting evidence and compiling reports/cases to be used as evidence for court prosecution

– Experience in change management and/or aligning service delivery to comply with minimum standards and policy requirements

– Experience conducting organisational reviews or situation analysis
