Aktis Strategy Ltd (Team Leader – Libya Local Resilience/Stabilisation Project)


This person will be based initially in Tunis as part of Aktis’ North Africa regional team. This team has been operating out of Tunisia since late 2013 and Aktis is now registered in Tunisia as Aktis Maghreb. During this period, Aktis has built a team of 16 fulltime staff dedicated to project work focused on reforming the Tunisian security sector and supporting conflict management efforts in Libya. The staff combine international and local experience and understanding: the majority are local staff. Our technical delivery is led by native Arabic speakers and former security ministry officials with international consulting skills.




The role

Aktis is recruiting a Team Leader to lead an upcoming local resilience/stabilisation project in Libya. The project aims to enhance local resilience and recovery and local and overall Libyan stability by building the capacities of selected local municipalities to respond to conflict related issues, lead local stabilisation efforts, connect and enhance the legitimacy of the national government, enhance community security and promote a culture of peaceful resolution of conflicts to counter the violent trend.




The programme will initially focus on one municipality in Libya (most likely Tripoli) for 12 months before potentially expanding to additional locations, most likely Benghazi and Sabha. The start date for the project is likely to be around October 2017 but we are keen to bring this person on board as soon as possible in order to support the finalisation of the project design with the client.




Overall, the Team leader will provide the strategic and operational direction to the project and will ensure the overall quality of the project execution through leadership, coordination and technical support. The Team leader will manage, guide, coach and supervise the project team in the effective and efficient facilitation of the project interventions and build relationships with donor, Libyan government authorities, civil society stakeholders and the partner municipality. They will also be expected to participate in national and international level networking, knowledge sharing and policy dialogue related to the project.




Depending on the interests and capabilities of the successful applicant, we would be keen for he/she to take up a trusted position in the company (as staff or associate) in order to help support our growing project portfolio in Libya.
