Pact Overview
At the heart of Pact is the promise of a better tomorrow. A nonprofit international development organization founded in 1971, Pact works on the ground in nearly 40 countries to improve the lives of those who are challenged by poverty and marginalization. We serve these communities because we envision a world where everyone owns their future. To do this, we build systemic solutions in partnership with local organizations, businesses, and governments that create sustainable and resilient communities where those we serve are heard, capable, and vibrant.

Pact is a recognized global leader in international development. Our staff have a range of expertise in areas including public health, capacity development, governance and civil society, natural resource management, poverty, fragile states, monitoring and evaluation, small-scale and artisanal mining, microfinance and more. This expertise is combined in Pact’s unique integrated approach, which focuses on systemic changes needed to improve people’s lives.

Programme Overview
“RE-INVENT is a £20m 5-year programme that aims to enhance Kenyan capacity and capability to address inter-communal conflict, weak community- police relations, violence against women and girls (VAWG), violent extremism and election related violence. It will support the continued advancement of police reforms to improve the management, oversight and accountability of the police force.

The programme will aim to deliver a reduction in conflict and violence through improvements in responses to violent incidents and crime, including VAWG. The geographical focus will be in priority northern/coastal counties. It will also support DFID’s portfolio in northern/coastal regions with conflict analysis to inform the targeting of wider development programmes to better address long term conflict drivers.”

The programme will build Kenyan capacity and capability at national, county and local levels for a more integrated approach to tackling five types of inter-related violence: inter- communal conflict, criminal violence, violence against women and girls, violent extremism and election violence.

The programme will provide strategic support to police reform as a core intervention in order to improve police engagement with citizens and police effectiveness in tackling insecurity, conflict, violence against women and girls and countering violent extremism. Towards 2022 it will aim to contributing to a peaceful general election.

The programme will therefore support a number of inter-related work streams:

  • Police reform
  • Tackling violence against women and girls
  • Peacebuilding to address inter-communal conflict
  • Countering violent extremism (CVE)
  • Conflict sensitive development in the north/coastal regions
  • Enhancing elections security for a peaceful general election in 2022 Position Purpose

The jobholder will lead the above programme, managing the RE-INVENT team, liaising with our client, DFID, and reporting in to Pact Nairobi office and contract support in DC.

We are seeking a Team Leader to deliver the new DFID Kenya RE- INVENT programme, as part of the upcoming tender process.
