EMPLOYMENT: Consultancy to Support the International Land Coalition’s Asia Regional Platform


Members of the International Land Coalition (ILC) in Africa, Latin America and Asia are organized into regional platforms. Each regional platform meets once a year to approve ILC’s priority actions for the region, which are subsequently integrated in ILC’s global workplan. For each regional platform, a light regional coordination unit hosted by a member and headed by a Regional Coordinator supports the implementation of the regional component of the ILC work plan, under the oversight of a regional Steering Committee.

Since 1st of January 2013, the ILC Asia platform has entered a transition period, as a result of the ending of the hosting by ANGOC (an ILC member) of the regional coordination unit; and of the vacancy of the ILC Asia coordinator position. The process of identifying a new host organization is underway. The recruitment of a new coordinator is expected to be completed by end April.

The ILC Secretariat is hiring consultant for a four-five month period to: (a) act as interim coordinator for about five months; (b) support the Asia regional Steering Committee in the recruitment of a new coordinator; and, (c) support the Asia Steering Committee in the selection of a new host organization for the regional coordination unit.

Responsibilities and tasks

The key areas of responsibilities and specific tasks to be performed by the consultant are the following:


The Consultant is part of the ILC Secretariat team. He/she reports to the Director of the ILC Secretariat, and to whoever is designated by the Director to act as direct supervisor on specific assignments.


The consultant position is in principle based at ILC Secretariat in Rome, Italy. If needed, and especially where justified for an effective and efficient delivery of the work, an ILC member in Asia could be asked to host the position for part or the whole assignment period.

The Consultancy will be for the period of 1 February to 30 June 2013. The remuneration level is determined after review of the consultant’s skills and professional experience.
