Job Vacancy- FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT SPECIALIST AND TECHNICAL ADVISOR FOR FAMILY AND CRIMINAL JUSTICE

The Justice Law and Order Sector (JLOS) is a sector wide approach
adopted by Government of Uganda in 1999 to improve the administration
of justice, maintenance of law and order and strengthen the rule of
law in Uganda.JLOS thus brings together all institutions charged with
the administration of justice, maintenance of law and order and human
rights.

JLOS programmes are supported through the sector wide approach to
planning, budgeting, programme implementation, monitoring and
evaluation with a shift of focus from institutional interests to sector wide
strategic interests through a rationalized application of resources from
the Government of Uganda and Development Partners.

JLOS is a reform programme run under a common investment plan,
whose short term strategic objectives include adherence to the rule of
law, fostering a culture of human rights, access to justice, reducing the
incidence of crime and contributing to economic development. In the
long term, JLOS strategic objectives will be narrowed to three strategic
objectives of strengthening policy and regulatory frameworks, access to
justice and fostering a human rights culture and accountability to bring
them in line with the National Development Plan.
JLOS is overseen by the Leadership Committee, Steering Committee
and Technical Committee with a secretariat made of different advisors
