Trade policy and administrative management

Description

The BAE (Bilateral Associate Expert) program was initiated by Sida in 1985, as a complement to the multilateral/UN program, JPO (Junior Professional Officer). The objective of the BAE program is to provide technical assistance to and strengthen capacity of the receiving organization through a young expert. A BAE is a young professional below the age of 33, who holds a university degree and has at least two years of relevant, paid, work experience. In the recruitment process, Sida and the receiving organization look for young professionals with knowledge and skills relevant for the organization, as well as the potential and willingness to learn and grow during the assignment. BAE:s are mainly placed within a cooperating partner organization in the global south, be it local/international NGO:s, public agencies, ministries, etc. working with international development, such as International Planned Parenthood Foundation, Saferworld, Slum Dwellers International, Western Indian Ocean Marine Science Association, Agence de l'Environnement et du Développement Durable in Mali, etc. The receiving organization drafts the ToR and is highly involved in the recruitment process, in order to ensure local ownership. Before deployment, all BAE:s undergo a one week onboarding in Sweden, to prepare for their missions. The BAE contract is for maximum three years and before starting the third year, a BAE may relocate to an Embassy working with international development.
