📋 Jobs Description Details

Vacancy for a Digital Inclusion Advisor for Digital Solutions for Sustainable Development (DSSD) Programme

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is a federally owned international cooperation enterprise for sustainable development with worldwide operations. GIZ has worked in Rwanda for over 30 years. The primary objectives between the Government of Rwanda and the Federal Republic of Germany are poverty reduction and promotion of sustainable development. To achieve these objectives, GIZ Rwanda is active in the sectors of Decentralization and Good Governance, Economic Development and Employment Promotion, Energy and ICT (Information and Communications Technology).

The project “Digital Solutions for Sustainable Development” (DSSD) advises Rwandan institutions on the implementation of the Smart Rwanda Master Plan (2016-2020) and its priority projects. The project aims at promoting the development of digital solutions in collaboration with sector ministries, local and international private companies, research institutions and civil society. The development of pioneering solutions is supported and managed by the newly created Center for Digital Transformation (CDT) – a project unit of DSSD.

The Digital Solutions for Sustainable Development project entered a new phase in 2021. In addition to digital solutions that are being developed together with the Rwandan partner authorities, more vulnerable groups such as the rural population, women and people with disabilities are to be involved in the digital transformation in line with the approach “Leave no one behind”. One of the project objectives is designed to develop initiatives to promote digital participation in collaboration between public and private stakeholders. The assumption here is that digital skills, combined with target-group-specific digital services, will enable a large proportion of the population to be part of the digital transformation and use these services. To reach the target groups effectively, use leveraging effects and develop user-centric services, stronger cooperation between public and private actors is being promoted. This will contribute to develop and offer services in a systematic and coordinated manner.

GIZ Rwanda is currently looking for an Advisor for the DSSD programme, to support the existing team to implement the training activities around the focus area of digital inclusion and to help develop target group specific training measures to strengthen digital skills, especially for women and people with disabilities.
