Hivos seeks qualified Indonesian candidates for the position of Program Assistant Freedom & Accountability.Background
Creative industry is expected to be the next economic powerhouse for Indonesia where women are expected to play key roles. The contribution of this sector to our PDB is 7% that makes Indonesia as the 3rd in the ranking after US (11%) and South Korea (9%). The sector provided employment to 16.4 million people in 2017 and was expected to reach its peak last year. Behind these figures are the extraordinary growth of creative hubs, especially in the form of co-working spaces. This can be said was due to a shift towards digital technology and individuals using “virtual space” as a means to collaborate and create all sorts of innovative projects.
The challenge is how to ensure inclusivity and enduring co-creation in enhancing innovation out of these co-working spaces. It is now normal to rent out or become a member of a co-working space merely to use the space to work on your individual projects, rather than using it as a space to connect and create initiatives and projects based on the connections you make from sharing a working space. In addition, we see a lack of female representatives forming leaders of co-working spaces, which usually consists of only men co-founders. With these two things in mind, it takes away from the idea that co-working spaces were created to promote inclusivity and diversity.
In 2019 Hivos Southeast Asia implements initiatives to support women, called SETARA: Female makers for inclusive and sustainable creative hubs and SPEAK (Strengthening Public Services through Empowerment of Women-led Advocacy and Social Audit Networks. The projects provide social-economic capacity development for women.
For this purpose, we are seeking strong candidates for Program Assistant. The consultant will work under the supervision of SETARA Program Officer and SPEAK Project Officer to ensure compliance of all administrative reporting.
The requirements for the Candidate are the followings:
An inspiring and dynamic working environment, dedicated colleagues and the possibility to work for an ambitious new international initiative.
To apply for this position please submit your EOI and CV (no more than 3 pages) including your consultancy rate to email@example.com and cc-ed to: firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 21 July 2019
