Job Vacancies under RSS-IGAD Project -South Sudan

RSS/IGAD Regional Initiative for Capacity Enhancement in South Sudan
Phase II CSSO Terms of Reference (19 Positions) January, 2018

Programme Context

Capacity building in human resource, organizational and institutional levels is an urgent priority in South Sudan. It is central to restoring core institutions - both in terms of physical infrastructure and technical ability - and providing basic services to citizens. The Government of the Republic of South Sudan (RSS) has, together with its international partners, developed a Medium Capacity Development Strategy (MTCDS) as an Action Plan for Rapid Capacity Building through the RSS/IGAD Initiative Project Phase II.

The IGAD Initiative is supporting the RSS through the secondment and placement of civil servants from three IGAD Member States (Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda). The civil servants are deployed in strategic functions within national ministries, commissions and state-level local governments. They serve as rapid capacity enhancement support and are “twinned” with South Sudanese civil servants to ensure the direct transfer of skills and on-the-job training – through mentoring and coaching.

The Initiative recruits and places highly qualified civil servants, to be designated as Civil Service Support Officers (CSSOs), to work within the RSS on contract. The CSSOs sign a contract of engagement with the RSS.

Kenya was apportioned 55 slots under the Project. Thirty five (35) Officers were deployed in South Sudan under the Project. The first group who were deployed in October, 2015 completed their tour of duty on 6th October, 2017. Currently, there are 6 officers deployed in South Sudan under the Project.

The Government of Kenya is therefore seeking to recruit competent, results-oriented, dedicated and dynamic public servants to fill the positions under the RSS/IGAD Project:
