Enabel, the Belgian development agency, has been implementing Belgium's international development policy for almost twenty-five years. Our mission is to contribute to the achievement of sustainable development goals. Every day, our teams strive to build a sustainable and equitable world.

The agency manages more than 170 projects in 21 countries. One of these projects is the Junior Programme, a real professional springboard and a promoter of global awareness. It has been running since 2006.
Its aim is twofold: to promote sustainable international solidarity by recruiting young European talent and enabling them to develop their skills abroad.

Junior Programme
With this vision in mind, the Junior Programme defines itself as a "talent spotter" and a "career booster".
Through their experience talents develop the competences to actively and sustainably engage in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. The Junior Programme aims to make them active and critical global citizens who are committed to the SDGs.

The Junior Experts work minimum 1 and maximum 2 years in an Enabel project or in a project of one of the Non-governmental organisations (NGO) that are affiliated with the Junior Programme.
The Junior Programme only accepts young people of maximum 30 years old.

General information
Reference code: ​TAN.2402_JE_Communication_SFCG ​
Duty location: Tanzania, Dar Es Salaam,
Organisation name: Search for Common Ground,
Project title : "Daraja la Amani, Pontes de Paz" (Bridges of Peace)
Contract type: CDI with terme clause
Contract duration: 1 year extendable
Expected contract start date: between 1/10 and 20/11/2024.

In an effort to complement SDG16 on the promotion of peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, the main objective of the Cross-Border project “Daraja la Amani, Pontes De Paz” (“Bridges of Peace”) is to prevent and respond to violent extremism in the border areas of Southern Tanzania and Northern Mozambique. The project seeks to build trust and collaboration between security forces and communities, so that they can jointly prevent violent extremism and respond to security challenges.

The project’s dialogues, joint analysis, security-community engagement activities will provide spaces for security forces, community leaders, religious leaders, women’s groups, youth and other vulnerable and marginalised groups to discuss challenges related to security and/or violent extremism.
This process will increase trust between state and community actors and the platforms for dialogues with government and security actors regarding issues affecting them will contribute to a safer environment.

The project's key partners include the Ministries of Home Affairs in Tanzania and Interior in Mozambique, the University of Dar es Salaam, and the University of Joachim Chissano. This project is implemented in partnership with the International Organization for Migration (IOM).
Main activities of the project are Community Engagement Activities, Positive Narrative Campaigning, Policy Briefs, Case Studies, and Conflict Snapshots and Tailored Capacity Building.

Job description
A state faced with increased activities of violent extremist groups can be tempted to respond with a hard, security-centred approach in order to reduce the spillover of extremism. But this militarised approach can lead to more mistrust, more violence between security forces and communities, and in fact serve as a push factor for young marginalised people to join the violent extremist groups.

The Junior Expert in Communications plays a crucial role in conveying compelling information about human-centred security, and how trust and collaboration between security forces and communities is one of the best ways to contribute to safe societies and prevent violent extremism. The Junior Expert produces quality communications content that is shared with a Tanzanian and Belgian audience, to demonstrate the impact of such “human-centred” approaches and encourage the use of it at larger scale. In addition, the Junior expert will play a key role in highlighting the paramount importance of investing in development and peacebuilding efforts in Tanzania and Mozambique, and how this can contribute to Belgium’s development objectives.
