We are seeking to appoint a gender advisory monthly service provider for People to People Cultural Engagement programme in Lithuania.

About the project

People to People Cultural Engagement programme was rolled out in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania in 2016 and ending in April 2021. The goal of the People to People programme (further in text P2P) in the Baltics is to contribute to communities within Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania becoming socially cohesive and having a strong affinity for democratic values. The target groups of the P2P projects are persons belonging to ethnic minority groups, persons facing social exclusions and economic disadvantages or prone to destabilising narratives.

Each of the Baltic states implements the programme with the help of local partners (mostly non-governmental organisations) based on the needs of the specific location and context. Implementation is closely coordinated with the British Council Office in Poland and the UK. The P2P delivered around 40 projects between 2016-2021 across Lithuania, with the focus on ethnically diverse regions. We collaborated with around 40 partner organisations. The total funding for programme activities in Lithuania amounts to around 2 million EUR.

About the service

The purpose of this service is to oversee the development and execution of gender equality in the implementation of projects for the People to People programme in Lithuania. The gender advisor will review and support the development of project approaches informed by gender analysis, support the local programme team and programme partners on the approaches, methodologies and tools. The service provider will be responsible for overall integration of gender related aspects through P2P programme cycle. They will be responsible for women empowerment and gender-based aspects of the programme. They will provide strategic input and advice on gender across the programme activities and will ensure that gender equality is mainstreamed within those areas.

They will work closely with internal and external key stakeholders, execute plans that strengthen and integrate gender equality. They will take a tailored approach to the role based on the programme specific needs and programme strategy. The advisor should be able to build the capacity for effective gender programme design and implementation, oversee the mainstreaming of gender in the P2P programme.

They will demonstrate an understanding of gender, age, and other socio-cultural factors in the context of social cohesion. The advisor will have an experience working on the development and implementation of gender-sensitive approaches.
