About the Mali programme:

MAG has been present in Mali since June 2013. MAG Mali delivers risk education to ensure that local communities, refugees and displaced people in Mali keep themselves safe when exposed to the dangers of landmines and UXO. The programme is working with local communities to develop a network of Community Focal Points. This involves training men, women, young people, teachers and traditional leaders to share safety messages and collect data relating to accident victims and levels of contamination within communities. Alongside risk education, MAG carries out Arms Management and Destruction work, through bulk demolitions, as well as armoury rehabilitation and construction.

About the role:

We are currently seeking a Gender, Inclusion and Diversity Advisor to provide strategic leadership and representation for MAG in our Mali programme and across the Sahel region on strengthening the integration of a gender-sensitive and diversity-focussed approach within MAG’s programmes and in the sector.

The role will dispense training, mentoring, and deliver technical assistance to key stakeholders, in order to strengthen the skills of both individuals and local institutions.
