The International Land Coalition (ILC) is a global alliance working to promote access to land for people who are landless or have insecure land rights. The membership of ILC is made up of inter-governmental organisations, and organisations of civil society, including NGOs, social movements, producer organisations and research institutions (www.landcoalition.org/members).

The global secretariat of ILC is based in Rome, and carries the responsibility at the global level to provide support to the coalition in the implementation of the strategic plan. 
At regional level, ILC is organised in regional platforms. This provides opportunities for national and regionally-based members to strengthen their ownership of the coalition and ensures that the actions of ILC are more relevant to the specific regional contexts.

The regional coordination unit for Africa has been hosted for the past three years in Kigali, Rwanda. However, with this recruitment the unit will be relocated to a new member organisation in Africa. The location (to be decided by the ILC Africa Steering Committee) will be in Harare or another capital city in Africa, hosted by a member of ILC.

Terms of Reference:

The ILC Africa Regional Coordinator will be accountable to the Steering Committee of ILC Africa and will be directly answerable to the ILC Africa Steering Committee through their sub-committee on programmes and performance.  She/he will work on a daily basis under the direct supervision of the head of the host institution. The coordinator will liaise with the Rome-based secretariat in the operation of his/her duties, and will oversee ILC contracts in the region related to the implementation of the regional plan of work.

Interested candidates must have excellent communication skills, networking experience at the international and regional level, involving complex relationships between countries, donors, NGOs/CSOs, and public.  Interested candidates must be able to demonstrate a passion for, and understanding of, land reform including land rights and development issues.

  • Experience in using web-based tools to enhance communication capacity
  • Experience in inter-institutional collaboration, at both government and non-government levels, in an international setting
  • Familiarity with state of the art information technologies, standards and protocols
  • Experience in Non Profit Management or equivalent
  • Experience in developing successful grant proposals
  • Proven capacity in dealing with multiple donors
The following competencies are required:
