About Voluntās Policy Advisory

Voluntās Policy Advisory is a consultancy company driven by creating strategies with a purpose beyond profit and developing policies for sustainable impact. We provide fact-based recommendations and policy options based on extensive research and analysis in volatile regions.

Our goal is to have a positive impact on populations affected by crisis in order to improve their living standards and access to fundamental rights. We collect data, conduct analytics, and generate insights for both the private and public sectors. We use our insights to underpin strategic thinking and evidence-based decision making. By doing this we…

… deliver strategic and context-sensitive monitoring and evaluation

… produce data-driven policy options

… carry out context-specific due diligence for private and public partners

Since 2015, we have worked extensively in North Africa with various clients including UN agencies, international NGOs, major donors, and private companies. To further support our portfolio of projects in the region, we are looking to hire an Associate for our Tunis office.
