Job Description

Project Overview

Siren helps develop safe and secure societies where there is equal access to justice and freedom from fear. Specialising in civil policing transformation, security and justice programming, and broader public sector reform, we empower and build the capabilities of organisations to become more responsive to the needs of communities. We support our clients through the process of strategic change, combining an Organisation Development approach with advanced technology and customised solutions.

Committed to making a difference, we believe that the development of capabilities cannot be done for organisations - it must be done by and in effective partnership with them. As a result, our approach is collaborative, client-centered and holistic. We employ rigorous problem analysis and innovative interventions that are gender and conflict sensitive to drive sustainable change. Working in post-conflict and fragile states, we recognise the value of being flexible, adaptable and responsive to our clients’ changing needs.

 Siren is an international non-profit organization with headquarters in Beirut and project offices in both Beirut and Jordan. For more information, see: www.sirenassociates.com
