Your work with AGIAMONDO and CCN

Responsible and challenging

AGIAMONDO e.V. is the personnel service of the German Catholics for Development Cooperation. The Civil Peace Service (CPS) offers development workers a meaningful role working with local development agents. The CPS is a personnel programme for peace-building and the prevention of violence in crisis and conflict regions. It sets out to promote a world in which conflicts are settled without violence. Working with church-related and civil-social partner organisations in Columbia, AGIAMONDO aims to make a contribution towards civil conflict management and the sustainable and equitable development of the country through peace-building measures.



Colombia is currently in a remarkable phase of its peace process. After more than 60 years of armed conflict, a landmark peace agreement was signed in 2016 with one of the strongest rebel organizations. The current government is more committed to implementing this agreement than its predecessor governments. In addition, the government has begun peace negotiations with other illegally armed groups in the country and has already made initial progress, including the ELN.

The Comisión de Conciliación Nacional (CCN) acts as a reconciliation commission within the agreement to assist in various armed conflicts in the country. In doing so, it advocates for the respect of human rights and peaceful politics.

CCN is seeking a dedicated professional to support the team in Bogotá and advance its work in the regions through expertise in international peacebuilding.
