Job Overview

The job holder is a member of the IAG Global team and will accordingly contribute to the development and implementation of the Inclusion Advisory Group operations and programme.

The CBM Global IAG exists to support others to put inclusion into practice.

This is done through a tailored combination of technical assistance (TA) on policies and programmes, change facilitation, capacity strengthening and evidence of what works.

As a member of the IAG global team, the job holder will contribute to ensuring the work of the IAG global team is well coordinated and modeling inclusive practice through effective operational support. This will be done through supporting a combination of:

  • Contracted work pieces with IAG clients (e.g., UNFPA, WFP)
  • Key projects that enable wider IAG operations, including our community of practice and communications work.
