About the Position

Dexis Consulting Group is recruiting an Open Governance Specialist for an upcoming USAID project focused on facilitating a productive relationship between civil society and the Government of Tunisia,  focusing on 3 of the 5 main roles of civil society in a middle-income, democratic country: 1) advocacy/ campaigner (for example advocating for changes in existing laws to facilitate reforms), 2) watchdog (for example, monitoring of reforms and human rights issues), and 3) participant in global governance processes.


The Open Governance Specialist will provide overall technical direction regarding Tunisia’s participation in global governance processes (for example, the open government partnership standards, advisory boards of investment funds, etc.).


S/he will collaborate closely with a wide range of Tunisian government and civil society organizations (CSOs) to further the principles of open governance: that an open government is more accessible, more responsive, and more accountable to citizens, and that improving the relationship between people and their government has long-term, exponential benefits for everyone.


This will include work at the national and local levels with government, civil society, and the private sector, to engage directly on issues of common importance, to make commitments on reforms, and to advocate that those reforms happen.  


This position will be based in Tunis, Tunisia and is contingent upon award. Local nationals are encouraged to apply.



  • Engage with a wide range of Tunisian government offices and agencies and CSOs that will be beneficiaries of this project.
  • Help to build strong strategic partnerships with a wide group of stakeholders required to achieve project goals, including Tunisian government and civil society organizations (at the national, regional, and local levels) and the private sector.



Minimum Requirements:

  • Bachelor's degree or equivalent university degree required; Master’s degree or equivalent in fields related to international development, public policy, or governance preferred.
  • At least 5 years of professional experience working with government and/or civil society organizations to advocate for and monitor changes in existing laws and government reforms.
  • Strong critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
  • Proven ability to innovate, negotiate, and work well with others.
