“Stopping As Success: planning for success from start to exit” is a USAID-funded research project that will look at responsible exit strategies of INGOs. The research consortium consists of Peace Direct, Search for Common Ground and CDA Collaborative Learning Projects. The primary goal of this research is to examine exit strategies in peacebuilding and development programs, and bring greater awareness to the international community of the multiple dynamics at play when ending a program. Exit can be seen as a success because sustainable outcomes have been achieved or because continued intervention may only serve to distort local efforts.

Peace Direct is currently seeking a consultant in Mali to: 1) provide a one page analysis of the civil society and INGO environment in Mali; 2) Identify at least four case studies of INGO exits and phase-outs from Mali, and 3) to identify local resource organisations that have an influential role in Mali.

For this role, we require someone with contacts in the INGO and civil society sector in Mali, a degree in international development or a similar subject, a strong interest and understanding of development and civil society issues and proficiency in English and French. The consultant should be based in Mali.

Questions Typiques
“Please give me an example of a time when you had a problem with a supervisor/co-worker and how you approached the problem.” “I think that the hardest thing about work isn’t the work, it’s the people at work,” Teach says. Most employees have a problem with a supervisor or co-worker at some point in their career. How they handle that problem says a lot about their people skills. If you can explain to the interviewer that you were able to overcome a people problem at work, this will definitely help your chances of getting the job, he says.
Questions à poser
What is the next step in the process? This is the essential last question and one you should definitely ask. It shows that you’re interested in moving along in the process and invites the interviewer to tell you how many people are in the running for the position.
