Job Title: Consultant – Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) Analysis for Nigeria Strengthening Civic Advocacy and Local Engagement (SCALE) Project
Job ID: req10739
Nigeria SCALE project is a USAID-funded 5-year project (Oct 08, 2020 – Oct 07, 2025), implemented by Palladium in collaboration with the local resource partners. The goal of the Nigeria SCALE project is to strengthen the financial, management and advocacy capacity of local civil society organizations (CSOs) and Business Membership Organizations (BMOs) in Nigeria to create a more accountable, transparent, peaceful, and democratic Nigeria with more effective and efficient public service delivery.
The SCALE project supports CSOs and BMOs across all of USAID/Nigeria’s programmatic sectors with a basket of managerial, business strengthening, and advocacy capacity-building interventions aimed at advancing Nigerian CSO sustainability combined with targeted grants to advance mutually agreed upon priorities. The project is designed to enhance local CSOs’ ability to be positive and responsible change agents in Nigeria.
The project has five main technical components: 1) Component One – Improve CSO organizational capacity, 2) Component Two – Enhance capacity for CSO advocacy, collaboration and management, 3) Component Three – Improve the policy and regulatory environment for civil society, 4) Component Four – Countering Trafficking in Persons (CTIP), and 5) Component Five – Sector strengthening and advocacy.
SCALE takes an intersectional approach to Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) and understands that social and political identities (e.g., gender, disability, age, class etc.) combine to create unique forms of discrimination. SCALE is committed to ensuring GESI considerations are factored into all areas of project implementation such as identifying priorities, informing project design, ensuring that strategies and activities mainstream GESI, including analyzing how the project is affecting GESI outcomes.
Palladium is looking to engage the expertise of 2 consultants with backgrounds in GESI, development research, and other related qualitative assessment skills that will form a team to conduct a GESI analysis for the SCALE project across the six Nigeria geopolitical zones and the Federal Capital Territory. This analysis will collaborate closely with ongoing SCALE baseline, conflict sensitivity, and Applied Political Economy Analysis.
