The Pacific Community (SPC) is the principal scientific and technical organisation in the Pacific region, supporting development since 1947. We are an international development organisation owned and governed by our 26 country and territory members. In pursuit of sustainable development to benefit Pacific people, our organisation works across more than 20 sectors. We are known for our knowledge and innovation in such areas as fisheries science, public health, geoscience, and conservation of plant genetic resources for food and agriculture.

SPC has entered a 4-year project, the Pacific Partnership to end Violence against Women and Girls (herein referred to as Pacific Partnership EVAWG project), in partnership with UN Women and the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat (PIFS). The goal of this project is to promote gender equality and prevent violence against women and girls. The SPC component of the project will be led by the Human Rights and Social Development Division (HRSD) and implemented in collaboration with SPC’s Educational Quality and Assessment Programme (EQAP). This component aims to equip school students, schools and communities to understand and apply human rights and responsibilities, gender equality, inclusion and non-violence in four countries: Kiribati, Republic of the Marshall Islands, Tuvalu and Vanuatu. This position of Project Coordinator is a full-time position, once-off contract under this project and manages a team of up to 7 staff.

The Project Coordinator will provide overall leadership and management of the Pacific Partnership to End Violence against Women and Girls Project.  Where the role requires linking across the objectives of the HRSD work program, the Project Coordinator will have a matrix reporting relationship with other Team Leaders in this regard.  The role will also manage and develop direct reports.
