Vacancy Announcement : Part-time coordinator for international project

Date : 01 Feb 2016 - 19 Feb 2016
Venue : ECOWAS Commission,
Town : ABUJA
Country : Nigeria


The project Capacity Building in International Standard Setting will run until December 2017. It is a joint program between the Economic Community of West Africa States (ECOWAS) and Swedish Standards Institute (SIS) funded by the Swedish   International   Development   Cooperation   Agency   (Sida).   SIS   is   the contracting party with Sida.

The proposed project aims at strengthening the capacity of the ECOWAS region to influence and make use of the ISO system. Throughout this process, synergies with African regional standardisation will be sought. As a basis for the project, a couple of ISO standardisation processes will be used as case studies to build the capacity strengthening around. As many of the involved countries do presently not have much involvement in ISO, it will be an important element for further capacity building. One of the key methodologies when doing this is to focus on the need to effectively involve relevant stakeholders to achieve a larger influence.

The project will be coordinated jointly by ARSO, ECOWAS and SIS. The successful candidate would act as the ECOWAS coordinator on a part time basis (around 80 %) under a consultancy agreement.


In order to implement the project, a Coordinator position is being instituted. The main responsibilities of the Coordinator will be to facilitate regional activities and follow up on national activities. Tasks and responsibilities are described below but might change over time.
