Technical Adviser for Entrepreneurship Promotion
for the project “Employment Promotion Darfur for Refugees, IDPs and host communities”
Duty station is Khartoum with regular duty trips to Nyala, El Fasher and El Geneina.
On behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), GIZ implements a project to promote employment in the three capitals of North, West and South Darfur. The project aims at improving the livelihoods of the local population, internally displaced persons and refugees by enhancing both the demand and supply sides of the labour market. On the demand side, the project works with private sector organisations and producer associations to improve business and entrepreneurship development services that will enable young people to start their own business and artisan workshops and small businesses to grow and create jobs. On the supply side the project strengthens the capacities of technical and vocational training providers to deliver market-oriented skills training. To complement these efforts, assistance is provided to stakeholders, including the Labour Offices in the three respective towns, who can link young job seekers to opportunities for apprenticeship, employment or self-employment. Particular attention is paid to marginalised groups such as internally displaced persons, refugees and women.
