CIRRMA is looking for an experienced grant writer for a short-term assignment to develop a 4-year
project proposal aiming at developing a critical understanding about conflict or crisis roots among EU
citizens, especially young women and men, with a strong focus on gender inequalities and migration
issues resulting from conflicts.
Background
In November 2022, CIRRMA has submitted a concept note to answer European Union's DEAR call for
proposals as the lead applicant. A group of Réseaux Régionaux Multi-Acteurs (RRMAs – MultiStakeholder Regional Networks), from five French Regions, acting under the umbrella of their interregional agency, the Conférence Interrégionale des RRMA (CIRRMA – RRMAs' Interregional
Conference), have built a partnership with 2 European NGOs and 4 CSOs from partner countries to
promote peace and democratic values within a minimum of 8 European Union (EU) Member States
and 6 partner countries and territories.
The programme they wish to implement together intends to connect, empower and engage young
women and men in the EU and beyond. The aim is to offer them opportunities: i) to share their vision
of peace and democracy, ii) to meet with peers from other cultural backgrounds, iii) to learn from each
other about how to face or deal with different crises, iv) to engage in awareness raising and advocacy
activities. The programme's main outcome will be to develop a critical understanding about conflict or
crisis roots among EU citizens, especially young women and men, with a strong focus on gender
inequalities and migration issues resulting from conflicts. This will be achieved by fostering cooperation
between youth groups from EU Member States and from partner countries and territories located in
conflict/post-conflict related settings, in order for them to build relationships of trust and mutual
support and implement joint awareness raising and advocacy campaigns. The programme will also aim
at building the capacity of Local Authorities (LAs) and Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) – among 120
partners involved in the action – in order for them to develop and implement global citizenship
education activities to promote peace and democratic values. Bonds with research centres in Italy,
France and the Netherlands will contribute to implement new practices and to understand better
peacebuilding issues among the programme's partners.
If the concept note were selected in January 2023, CIRRMA and the 11 other consortium members will
develop a full project proposal by March 2023.
Purpose of the consultancy
The consultant will be responsible for developing a proposal which reflects EU development education
strategy, through assessing the objectives and activities proposed by the consortium members and
ensuring they fall into the DEAR programme's priorities. The consultant will take the lead, in
conjunction with CIRRMA Executive Director, to develop a compelling, evidence-based proposal for
the activities. The consultant will bring to the programme design process a thorough understanding of
and prior experience in bid-writing for institutional donors. Preferably, the consultant will have prior
experience working with the European Commission and in development education programmes.
The consultant will develop, in consultation with CIRRMA Executive Director, a detailed work plan that
will include undertaking at least the following tasks:
▪ Review secondary literature on development education and relevant EU policies (gender,
youth…) as well as existing initiatives implemented by other stakeholders under the DEAR
programme;
▪ Review the call for proposals' guidelines and the concept note submitted by CIRRMA;
▪ Reach out to key persons from each consortium member organisation to discuss their added
value in the context of this call for proposals, help identifying their priorities as well as the
staffing needs/organigramme for the proposed programme;
▪ Propose relevant ideas/topics which serve the consortium's and members' needs and which
simultaneously satisfy DEAR programme's objectives;
▪ Write a draft of the comprehensive bid, including all annexes and especially logframe and
budget.
Qualification and experience
▪ Preferably an advanced university degree (masters or equivalent) in international
affairs/studies or development;
▪ Minimum 5 years of experience in the design, proposal writing, and/or management of
development education programmes;
▪ Strong programme design skills, including capacity to prepare logical, coherent, and consistent
documents including logframes and budgets;
▪ Prior demonstrated experience developing proposals for the European Commission;
▪ Ability to work efficiently and effectively with consortium members in various locations and
from multiple organisations, including remotely writing and revising proposal documents;
▪ Ability to integrate different experiences, methodologies, and approaches from a diverse
range of stakeholders and organisations;
▪ Excellent English and French speaking/writing skills required
