Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (Programme Roles)
CSSF (Conflict, Stability and Security Fund)
Job Description (Roles and Responsibilities)
The British Embassy Amman is seeking a highly motivated and enthusiastic individual for the position of Shared Security Project Officer under the Conflict, Security and Stability Fund (CSSF), job grade Executive Officer (HEO).
The CSSF is a unique cross-government Fund tackling some of the most complex challenges to national security and international peace and stability faced by the UK and our partners around the world. These threats range from terrorism and serious organised crime, to newer evolving challenges such as cyber and the destabilising potential of climate change and the COVID pandemic.
Over the last six years, the CSSF has transformed the way the UK responds to national security threats, including from conflict and fragility overseas. In the last FY, CSSF funding has, for example, supported peacekeeping missions in Somalia and Mali; helped the extradition from Libya and subsequent conviction of a perpetrator of the 2017 Manchester Arena bombing; enabled the National Security Communications Team’s modern slavery campaign to deter human trafficking, contributing to the rescue of over 400 potential victims and saving the UK c£134m; and supported the Colombian government to address illegal deforestation and promote sustainable forest livelihoods. More information can be found in the CSSF Annual Report 2020-2021.
This year, with a global budget of £875m, the CSSF is operating in 106 countries. The CSSF Jordan Programme budget is provisionally set at £40m from 22/23 to 24/25 and is a fully cross-government portfolio. The Fund works towards both National Security Council objectives such as Protecting our People and Projecting our Global Influence; and UK Sustainable Development Goals, including promoting just, peaceful and inclusive societies, and achieving gender equality and empowering all women and girls.
About the role
This exciting role will see the jobholder delivering CSSF’s Shared Security and Stability support directly connected to the objectives set out in the UK-Jordan Country Plan and the UK’s Integrated Review.
Working with colleagues in London and Amman, the jobholder will be responsible for supporting the delivery of CSSF funded projects within the Shared Security and Stability Programme. The programme is central to delivering the objectives set out in the Shared Security campaign goal of the Jordan Country Plan. Project delivery will primarily focus on policing, making a significant contribution to UK objectives on women, and peace and security. The jobholder may also be asked to support projects across the wider CSSF network in Jordan.
The programme also has strong gender focus and the jobholder will be responsible for ensuring compliance with the International Development Gender Equality Act (2014) by demonstrating consideration for gender equality and supporting CSSF ambitions to achieve the UK’s Women, Peace and Security objectives.
The CSSF is a high risk, adaptive fund, and the jobholder will need to flex to rapidly emerging opportunities and risks, adapting project plans and demonstrating excellent networking and stakeholder management skills.

Scrutinise financial information received from implementers and resolve problems to ensure funds are spent well and deliver value for money.
