PROJUST focuses on incorporating a gender perspective into all areas of NCJS implementation the project supports. For this upcoming year, PROJUST is seeking qualified Gender Specialists to work as consultants for anticipated capacity building activities. The Gender Specialist consultant will utilize a PROJUST-developed training program to provide justice sector operators with tools to process and analyze cases with a gendered perspective. This position may also work on developing, revising, and/or adapting a capacity-building guide for operators in the NCJS. The emphasis of this guide is gender and its relationship with the oral, accusatory system and gender issues in the criminal justice system. The consultant may also provide training to justice sector operators and counterparts on gender issues. Please note that the frequency and subject areas of training courses implemented by PROJUST will vary depending on counterpart capacity building needs throughout the upcoming year.
Only candidates who have been selected for an interview will be contacted. No phone calls, please.
