VACANCY NOTICE: Human rights program coordinator within the Justice Program of the Soros Foundation-Moldova

Background:
The Justice Program of the Soros Foundation-Moldova (SFM) contributes to the development of an accessible, predictable, and fair justice system, which guarantees respect and protection for fundamental human rights. According to SFM Strategy for 2014-2017, the Program implements projects in three areas, vital for the fulfillment of its vision, including Criminal Justice, Human Rights, Judicial Independence and Accountability. In the area of human rights, the Program acts in the frames of its second strategic concept named „Reduce Arbitrary Limitation of Human Rights.”

The human rights work of the Program aims to respond to at least three systemic challenges, which make the further implementation and promotion of human rights more challenging: shortage of human and other resources to monitor, collect data, report and advocate at local and international levels, abusive limitation of rights, unbalanced polices for conflicting rights. For instance, the case of invoking the use of religious freedom in order to limit other fundamental rights or limitations introduced under the disguise of national security concerns, as it is the case of abusive classification of public interest information. In response, the Program initiated a multifaceted project aiming to consolidate professional capacities of the human rights activists, to monitor the respect for freedom of religion and its impact on other rights, and the interaction between religious denominations and the state. We also engaged in analyzing legislation and practices in the area of freedom of information and its classification in light of the new Global Principles of National Security and Freedom of Information.

In order to ensure the proper administration of the Human rights portfolio, the Justice Program seeks a qualified program coordinator.

Key responsibilities:

  • Contribute in developing the Program’s action plan and budget lines;

  • Minimum of 3 years of progressive experience in project coordination, preferably with the focus on human rights;
  • Sound knowledge of the international and regional human rights standards, including the UN, Council of Europe and European Union standards;
  • Thorough knowledge of the Moldovan human rights context;
  • Advanced analytical and report writing skills;
  • Excellent oral and presentation skills;
