Technical Advisor in Sexual and Gender Based Violence

Everyone should have the opportunity to experience sexuality voluntarily, safely and pleasantly. We therefore pursue this aim with great passion. For numerous decades, Rutgers has been an expert in advocacy for and programming on sexuality education in the Netherlands and in low and middle-income countries in Africa and Asia. We acquire knowledge and develop effective methods on the basis of research. Furthermore, we utilise our knowledge and expertise to influence policy-makers.
Rutgers' success is also evident in other countries. This inspires us to cooperate with organisations throughout the world in improving sexual health and offering people freedom of choice in relationships, sexuality and the decision whether or not to have children.
Rutgers' International programmes department currently has a vacancy for a
Technical Advisor in Sexual and Gender Based Violence 
Sexual Diversity, Gender and Gender Transformative Approach
(0,89 FTE) (vacancy number 2016-32)
The patriarchal culture strongly influences and affects sexual and reproductive health and rights and (sexual) relationships of all people, reinforces heteronormativity and often legitimates the abuse of power and (sexual) violence. Rutgers challenges these harmful and restrictive social and cultural norms and values by working with a gender transformative approach (GTA). GTA is offering women and men space for critical reflection so that both can free themselves from rigid gender and sexual norms. Women's rights and empowerment, equitable, caring and non-violent forms of manhood and respect for sexual diversity are strongly interlinked. By using an ecological model, transformation is foreseen at all levels, individual, institutional, in the communities and in the policy environment. Rutgers implements comprehensive SRHR programmes in which mainstreaming of a gender transformative approach is a key strategy. Furthermore, Rutgers implements a number of programmes that specifically work with boys and men to address Sexual and Gender Based Violence.
The Technical Advisor contributes to mainstreaming GTA and sexual diversity strategies into SRHR and SGBV programmes. The Technical Advisor works closely with the gender experts at Rutgers country offices, and supports and advises other colleagues from a technical and scientific angle. The advisor supports in the development and implementation of (country) programmes and projects in respective areas. Capacity building and training of partner organisations form an important part of the job. Furthermore, the Technical Advisor contributes to policy and strategic planning, strengthening relevant networks and building (new) partnerships. The advisor will document and publish project and programme processes and results and represents the organisation in contacts with national and international (partner) organisations, and at conferences etc.
