IWPR is looking for a technical consultant that can help set up, format, and troubleshoot a remote training system.

Responsibilities:

  • Understand IWPR's remote training strategy;
  • Work with IWPR and its partners in conflict zones to develop technical capacity in remote training (hardware, software, equipment, etc.);
  • Coordinate with content experts to ensure training materials are suitable for a remote training module;
  • Be available for occasional follow-up to troubleshoot any issues.

Qualifications:

  • Strong experience in developing remote training systems;
  • Experience delivering remote trainings (preferable);
  • Experience doing remote training in conflict zones with weak internet (highly preferable);
  • Experience in working with civil society actors (preferable);
  • Ability to travel to Lebanon and potentially other MENA countries.
