We provide services worldwide in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development. GIZ has over 50 years of experience in a wide variety of areas, including economic development and employment, energy and the environment, and peace and security. The diverse expertise of our federal enterprise is in demand around the globe, with the German Government, European Union institutions, the United Nations and governments of other countries all benefiting from our services. The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) is our main commissioning party, but we also work with the private sector, fostering successful interaction between development policy and foreign trade.
All these commissioning parties place their trust in GIZ by working together with us to generate ideas for political, social and economic change, develop these into concrete plans and implement the envisaged change processes. Since we are a public-benefit federal enterprise, German and European values are central to our work. This makes us a reliable service provider that people can trust. Together with our partners, we work to deliver flexible and effective solutions that offer people better prospects and sustainably improve their living conditions.
The registered offices of GIZ are in Bonn and Eschborn. In 2015 our business volume exceeded 2.1 billion euros. Of our 17,319 staff in over 130 countries, around 70 per cent are national personnel working in the field. In our capacity as a recognised sending organisation, we currently have 730 development workers in action in partner countries. In addition, CIM, a joint operation of GIZ and the Federal Employment Agency, placed almost 1,000 integrated and returning experts with local employers abroad in 2015 while providing them with financial support and advisory services.*

As a federal enterprise, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH supports the German Federal Government in achieving its objectives in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development. GIZ has been commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) to support KAIPTC in building its organisational competences and institutional capacities to deliver needs-based expertise in the context of the African Peace and Security Architecture (APSA).

Key tasks of the Senior Regional Advisor are the support to the KAIPTC in developing and implementing a multi-level purposive partner management and demand-driven stakeholder engagement approach. This approach needs to take into account the centre’s core tasks, its mandate and its identity as a training, research and academic institution on the continental, regional, and national level alike.
While this is a local recruitment, we strongly welcome applications from Regional Experts beyond the Republic of Ghana. However, the laws of Ghana apply. All needed requirements in regards to work/resident permits are to be respected.
