As a federal enterprise, GIZ supports the German Government in achieving its objectives in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development.
For our work in Iraq/Baghdad, we are looking for a
Advisor (m/f) Economic and Social Integration of Young People and Returning Refugees
FIELD OF ACTIVITY
The GIZ Project "Private Sector Development” aims to improve the economic and social perspectives of young people and returning refugees in Iraq. A volatile security situation, stalling oil prices, and a contracting public sector contribute to a high youth unemployment rate of around 20%. Women and returning refugees are especially affected.
By utilizing three approaches which are (1) labour market measures, (2) support to small & medium sized companies (SMEs), and (3) psycho-social counselling, the project supports its beneficiaries on the individual, structural, and business level with the objective to increase their perspectives to prevent migration or alternative income activities such as provided by extremist militia groups.
The support via labour market measures combines vocational training, on-the-job training, and continuing education with job placement services, internship exchange, and further business-labour market connection initiatives. Sectors such as the crafts, construction, agriculture, food production, and health services offer significant potential for the project’s interventions which are implemented in cooperation with selected education providers in Basra, Erbil, and Baghdad. The approach also includes support to entrepreneurs and start-ups.
SMEs active in labour intensive branches of the economy will be supported via business consulting which includes business planning, marketing and market access, product refinement, and access-to-finance measures with the objective to increase employment opportunities.
Psycho-Social Counselling assists young people to (re)gain access to society and its social networks. The project supports measures and organisations providing counselling to traumatized young people and children as well as integrative networks of NGOs, students, journalists, and artists able to enrich the beneficiaries social connections.
This position focuses on the area of expertise.
