Senior Programme Officer: Commonwealth Civil Society

The Commonwealth Civil Society (CCS) is offering grants to civil society organizations (CSOs) for projects that seek to advance Commonwealth ideals and principles within the broad framework of ‘participatory governance’.

The Commonwealth Civil Society (CCS) programme works to contribute to vibrant and free civil societies across the Commonwealth by enabling citizens to constructively engage in core aspects of their governance in pursuit of the values and principles of the Commonwealth Charter. The programme combines flexible grant-making with capacity development approaches, applying both rigour and flexibility to widen access, especially for civil society groups in small and vulnerable States.

Working under the supervision of the SPM, the SPO will be involved in refining existing systems and processes and shaping new ones to ensure the programme contributes to the Foundation’s vision and mission. Establishing and maintaining strong working relations with partners, and with collaborating individuals and organisations, will be a key part of the role.
