    Turkey: Office Assistant, GS5, Istanbul #85975

    Organization: UN Children’s Fund
    Country: Turkey
    Closing date: 23 Oct 2018

    UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

    Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

    And we never give up.

    For every child,

    The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does — in programs, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this Commitment to children’s rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favoritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life — in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions — her or his rights are violated. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education and protection of a society’s most disadvantaged citizens — addressing inequity — not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfill their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries. This is why the focus on equity is so vital. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable development of nations.

    This position functions as part of an out-posted Regional Office team in Istanbul. It will directly support the Europe and Central Asia Regional Office (ECARO) professional staff team, and involve close collaboration and regular communication with the Regional Office in Geneva and the Country Office in Ankara.

Briefs/de-briefs staff members and interns on issues relating to related administrative matters such as visas, security clearance, documentation procedures. Extracts, inputs, maintains and verifies correctness of travel records in the organization’s travel system to ensure accurate transactions related to travel costs and staff travel. Collect background information and assists in the preparation of budgets on travel costs and maintain travel budgetary control records.

    5. Assisting in procurement and maintenance of UNICEF Istanbul office, services, furniture and equipment, by interacting with the UNICEF RO/CO Operations, Procurement and UN Common Premises unit.

    Afghanistan: Afghanistan – A Human Resources Advisor

    Organization: Première Urgence Internationale
    Country: Afghanistan
    Closing date: 30 Nov 2016

    Première Urgence Internationale (PUI) is a non-governmental, non-profit, non-political and non-religious international aid organization. Our teams are committed to supporting civilians’ victims of marginalization and exclusion, or hit by natural disasters, wars and economic collapses, by answering their fundamental needs. Our aim is to provide emergency relief to uprooted people in order to help them recover their dignity and regain self-sufficiency.

    The association leads in average 190 projects by year in the following sectors of intervention: food security, health, nutrition, construction and rehabilitation of infrastructures, water, sanitation, hygiene and economic recovery. PUI is providing assistance to around 5 million people in 20 countries – in Africa, Asia, Middle East, Eastern Europe and France.

    Find out about our history and values

    Humanitarian situation and needs

    Afghan mission is the oldest PUI mission, with first medical intervention launched in 1980 just after the Soviet Invasion. Since then, the country has mostly been in conflict, with both national armed groups and international forces, causing mass casualties and massive movements of population, within or out of the countries: out of the 30 millions in country population, 805.000 are registered as IDPs. 272.000 since January 2015, 3.703.000 Afghan refugees are registered in foreign countries (UNHCR, 2015).

    Since NATO intervention in 2001, humanitarian assistance and development projects have reached unprecedented levels of funds and intervention in the country. In the 2012 Tokyo Conference, Afghanistan announced its road map toward self-reliance. However, great challenges remain to overcome. Security, social and economic development, good governance, and justice are, among other issues, essential pre-conditions in order to achieve the country’s ambitious objectives.

    However, due to the raise of Armed Opposition Groups and the constantly increasing number of fights in the country, the security situation remains unstable: 2015 is the worst year since 2001 in terms of civilian casualties (11.000 officially recorded) and number of security incidents reported. Many attacks continue to claim lives among the Afghan population, and respect of humanitarian principles is a key stake (multiple violation including attacks on hospitals and health facilities) of the as the humanitarian access is more and more challenged (numerous incidents affecting the humanitarian community).

    In April 2014, the Presidential poll marked the transfer of power from one elected president to another for the first time in the country’s history. The political transition coincides with a security transition as Afghan security forces have taken up security responsibility from international forces which withdrew at the end of 2014. Humanitarian stakeholders forecasted an increased level of violence, a rise in unemployment and criminality. Those most affected are IDPs, the war wounded, and the people living in contested areas. As a consequence of constant unrest and lack of economic perspectives, many people flee the country being to neighboring countries such as Iran or Pakistan, or to Europe (in terms of population, Afghan people are the second nationality represented in the migrants continuous flux to Europe according to Frontex Agency).

    Thus, Afghanistan is today at crossroads, between increasing autonomy and development of infrastructures, within chronic vulnerabilities and complex emergencies to deal with: Armed Opposition Groups are constantly extending their territories, number of armed clashes and of casualties is constantly increasing, and natural disasters (such as the Earthquakes which affected the country over the past six months) are challenging the resilience of communities ( 8 millions people were assessed in food insecurity situation in 2015 according to Fewsnet)

    Rebuilding and strengthening the health-care system is still a priority in Afghanistan, with the country-wide continuation of the implementation of BPHS (Basic Package of Health Services) and the EPHS (Essential Package of Hospital Services), initiated in 2003 and 2005, and the implementation of emergency responses.

    Our action in the field

    PUI strategy is to address the fundamental needs of the Afghan population in respect with all humanitarian principles. Indeed, Neutrality and impartiality are key principles to respect in order to enable humanitarian access to the affected populations.

    PUI has a strong health expertise in the country that can be used as an entry point to implement an integrated approach to support the population to regain their most basic needs and also to their self-sufficiency. Indeed, such problems as malnutrition and undernutrition request a multi sectoral and comprehensive response in order to decrease the prevalence of the phenomenon.

    Since the beginning of 2013, PUI in Afghanistan decided to start interventions on emergency preparedness and medical interventions for conflict-affected populations. With constant increasing of civilian casualties during from January 2014 to June 2015 (4.900 registered during the first 2015 semester), it is indeed crucial to have health staff prepared and equipped for mass casualties, and also to implement responses to population displacements.

    Due to the violent recent history of the country and the constantly increasing number of security incidents in the country, PUI is developing an advocacy plan for development of PFA in the country, in order to support the development of such activity countrywide.

    Somalia: Human Resource Advisor

    Organization: CTG Global
    Country: Somalia
    Closing date: 16 Nov 2016

    Vacancy reference no.:

    VAC-0305

    Position:

    Human Resource Advisor

    Place of performance:

    Somalia/Kenya, Somalia

    Contract duration:

    up to 12 months

    Starting date:

    1-Jan-2017

    OVERVIEW OF CTG GLOBAL

    CTG support and manage humanitarian projects in fragile and conflict-affected countries around the world. With past performance in 15 countries – from the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia and Central and South America – we offer a holistic fabric of project management, implementation and support. Skilled in emergency response to crises such as the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, we have the ability to act quickly (crisis response teams can be on the ground in 24 hours) and to establish structured operations in high-risk environments. CTG recruit and manage qualified, skilled teams with extensive experience operating in challenging conditions.

    OVERVIEW OF THE POSITION

    1. General Background of Project / Assignment

    Our client’s mission is to serve people in need by expanding the ability of the United Nations, governments and other partners to manage projects, infrastructure and procurement in a sustainable and efficient manner.

    With over 7,000 personnel spread across 80 countries, Our client offers its partners the logistical, technical and management knowledge they need, wherever they need it.

    Currently, Somalia operations are largely focused on assisting partners with the implementation of physical infrastructure projects including the construction and rehabilitation of public administration infrastructure. Our client plays a crucial role in supporting the Somali Government and the UN Assistance Mission in Somalia.

    The Ministry of Public Works Reconstruction and Housing (MPWRH) needs to be strategically positioned, staffed and resourced to improve delivery of the Government’s clearly stated strategic and policy directions.

    Although the focus for MPWRH’s perceived difficulties in delivery is lack of sufficient budget or equipment, undoubtedly the lack of properly qualified people in the right positions in the right places is one of the most limiting factors for MPWRH in achieving its organisational objectives.

    The assignment is to implement a “Talent Acquisition” program to identify, attract and retain suitable qualified officers or to be more proactive by undertaking a planned, targeted Capacity Building Program and an awareness program of career opportunities in the Ministry.

    Once a Succession Plan can be devised against the new organisation structure for MPWRH (to be carried out under the Project), officers can be identified for training and the areas of study undertaken confirmed by the combination of Training Needs Analysis, Skills Gap Audit, Succession Planning and Performance Review along with the Ministry’s over-arching Human Resource Development Strategy.

    Utilising the Training Needs Analysis and Skills Gap Audit to be prepared by the HR Advisor, the priority Skills Gap areas may be targeted to build planning, management, administration and delivery ability in MPWRH. This will be done for current staff and the newly recruited staff. Progress can be tracked annually by successive Skills Gap Audits and quantified. Performance Review Reports which would provide critical data on progress.

    Some of the work items included in the Project for Capacity Building are:-

    Intern Program

    By identifying and supporting promising undergraduates in Somalia either from State Capital Universities and Colleges or from regional Universities and Colleges and giving holiday placements as “Interns,” it is hoped on graduation that they would return seeking employment in MPWRH.

    Youth Employment Program

    This Program is aimed to raise awareness and support the youth of Somalia to make school leavers, undergraduates and graduates aware of career opportunities not merely in MPWRH but across the construction sector. The youths included in the Program will leave with skills and certificate to be better equipped in gaining employment and developing a career.

    Considerable investment will be made for youths to acquire skills to work in the construction sector. These youth may have no formal qualifications and may not have leaving standard secondary schooling so selection for scholarships or entry into other formal and non-formal training in Somalia is not readily accessible. It is anticipated that negotiations with vocational training centers in Somalia will develop special courses designed for these youths to complete during the Project. Once qualified, these youth could then apply for jobs with contractors and receive assistance provided by the Project.

    Capacity Building Program in MPWRH

    From our recent discussions with MPWRH, it is identified that there is currently a huge need for basic management, supervision and administration skills training across all sections of the MPWRH. A raft of course will be prepared and contracted to existing in country training providers.

    The Federal Government of Somalia (FGS) has requested the African Development Bank (AfDB) to provide funds to Somalia for capacity development of the Ministry of Public Works, Housing and Reconstruction (MPWHR) and sub-Federal State level administrative bodies (hereafter referred to as States’ Administrations or States), thereby enabling them to fulfil their mandates.

    The Project is ready for implementation starting in January 2017 for 3 years duration with a project budget of approximately US$7 million. The Project is called the Somalia : Strengthening Institutions for Public Works Project (SSIPWP)

    AfDB has now contracted UNOPS to implement the Project that will primarily focus on capacity development of MPWHR and relevant Public Works State Ministries.

    UNOPS is now seeking to recruit a HR Advisor for the Project.

    GENERAL FUNCTIONS

    Role objective:

    The purpose is to enhance capability of the MPWHR to a level that will enable standards of design and implementation management to be sustained at a satisfactory level with minimal assistance after completion of the project. Ultimately, it is planned that the MPWRH will be in a position for more outsourcing of construction works, start to implement simple building maintenance contracts using local contractors and be at a stage where the MPWRH has the systems and procedures in place and be much less dependent on other organization inputs.

    The institutional strengthening and capacity building of the MPWRH will be accomplished through workshops and seminars conducted by our client, external training (as appropriate), and development and implementation of standard procedures and codes of practice appropriate for MPWRH operations and responsibilities.

    Under the guidance and direct supervision of the Project Manager – Institutional Development Specialist, the Human Resources Advisor will assist the MPWRH to ensure effective delivery of HR services for the Project. The HR Advisor will assist in the interpretation and application of Government of Somalia HR policies, rules and regulations for their civil servants, implements internal procedures and provides solutions to a wide spectrum of complex HR issues with the MPWRH counterpart staff. The HR Advisor is expected to apply theoretical conceptual models, make rudimentary analysis of project parameters in support of greater project development activities.

    The HR Advisor will report on the outcomes of the MPWRH Capacity Building Program, review of Succession Planning, Skills Gap Audit, Performance Reviews and Training Needs annually based on emerging priorities. Within the first 4 months from mobilization of the project, the HR Advisor should prepare the annual delivery schedule, costs per month and delivery targets based on Needs Assessment and Skills Gap Audit and emerging needs.

    Somalia: Call for Committee Members- Reward System Management Committee in Somaliland

    Organization: Global Peace and Prosperity Initiative
    Country: Somalia
    Closing date: 30 Sep 2016

    CALL FOR COMMITTEE MEMBERS- REWARD SYSTEM MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE-SOMALILAND

    1. Introduction

    Global Peace and Prosperity Initiative (GLOPPI) is a right based international organization which strives to eliminate poverty and violent conflict and poor governance in order to bring about lasting peace and sustainable development to the world’s poor, marginalized, excluded communities.

    GLOPPI strives to eliminate underlying causes and impacts of violent conflicts, poverty, minority/ human rights violations and poor governance. In collaboration with others, GLOPPI intends to empower the poor, marginalized, excluded and the suffering people to lead peaceful and prosperous life. GLOPPI’s governance work is guided by its three strategic objectives or goals:

    Currently, GLOPPI implements governance projects among others in Kenya and Somaliland. In Gabiley region of Somaliland, GLOPPI implements a bottom-up approach to building Somaliland accountable local government institutions project. The main purpose of the project is to make local governments be more accountable, transparent and responsive to the needs of their citizens. It also helps the civil society to participate in decisions affecting their lives and to take a leading role in good governance and the development of their localities and regions. The project intervenes in demand and supply sides of governance as well as the interface between the two. In the demand side, the project enhances and strengthens the capacity of the civil society and communities to demand accountability, good governance, and development. It also increases the awareness of the general public on accountability, good governance and development. In the supply side, it also develops the capacity of local government officials and the elected municipality council to be accountable, transparent and responsive to the needs of its citizens (supply side of governance). In addition, the project then creates a forum or a platform (interface) for the two sides to discuss, agree and collaborate on accountability, good governance as well as development.

    2. The incentive/reward system

    The reward system is one of the expected results of the project. It is generally believed that the tendency of local governance officials to be more accountable, transparent and responsive is low. Hence something more must be done to encourage and motivate the local government officials to be more accountable, transparent and responsive to the needs of its citizens. Therefore, the reward system is created in order to inspire the local government officials and civil society and communities to bring about a positive change on accountability, good governance and leadership.

    It is expected that ninety percent (90%) of the reward system will target the local government officials and elected municipality councils who bring about positive changes in the areas of accountability, transparency, good governance, service delivery, leadership, participatory planning and budgeting, participatory monitoring and social audit, resource mobilization and development etc. The introduction of new innovations and institutional reforms with accountable and transparent systems will be some of the requirements of the reward system. The reward system will also target the civil society and civil society organizations, communities and ordinary citizens who take a leadership role in demanding, advocating and effecting changes in the areas of accountability and good governance etc.

    The main purpose of the reward system is to create role models and champions of accountability and good governance and authentic, genuine and transformational leadership. This will help others to follow suit and to innovate; bring about positive changes; reform institutions; ensure efficiency and effectiveness in the service delivery. These will, in turn, contribute to good governance and sustainable development. Hence, those officials who exceed the expected performance or who take a leadership role in effecting change in the areas of accountability and good governance will be acknowledged and awarded. The reward system management committee will finalize the details and the types of incentives which will be included in the reward system.

    GLOPPI would like to facilitate the establishment of an incentive/reward system committee who will manage the reward system. Although the number can change, it is expected that the committee will consist of five to seven members at most, two of whom will be ladies. Three to four members are also expected to come from Gabiley region where the project is implemented whereas the rest of the three to four members will come from other regions of Somaliland. Being a member of the committee will not be a demanding task. The committee may initially meet once a month and later once in every three months. However, the committee will decide how often to meet. One of the GLOPPI staff will be attached to the committee to act as a secretary. It is also possible that consultants will work with the committee if there is any technical assignment which may be needed. Although the project will provide meeting allowance, the committee must be volunteers who are seriously committed to accountability, good governance, and development of their region and country. They must be visionary citizens who are passionate about positive institutional changes and long-term sustainable development. Therefore it is an interesting opportunity for talented, experienced and knowledgeable citizens, intellectuals and experts to participate in the transformation of Somaliland local institutions and in creating genuine and transformational leadership and role models who will make a positive difference in the lives of Somalilanders.

    3. Main Tasks/Duties or Responsibilities

    Lebanon: Lebanon – A Human Resources Coordinator in Beirut

    Organization: Première Urgence – Aide Médicale Internationale
    Country: Lebanon
    Closing date: 31 Oct 2016

    **
    Première Urgence Internationale (PUI)** is a non-governmental, non-profit, non-political and non-religious international aid organization. Our teams are committed to supporting civilians’ victims of marginalization and exclusion, or hit by natural disasters, wars and economic collapses, by answering their fundamental needs. Our aim is to provide emergency relief to uprooted people in order to help them recover their dignity and regain self-sufficiency. The association leads in average 190 projects by year in the following sectors of intervention: food security, health, nutrition, construction and rehabilitation of infrastructures, water, sanitation, hygiene and economic recovery. PUI is providing assistance to around 5 million people in 20 countries – in Africa, Asia, Middle East, Eastern Europe and France.

    Humanitarian situation and needs:

    Since the outbreak of the Syrian crisis in April 2011, according to UN estimations, 6.6 million people have been internally displaced, while 4.8 million refugees have been registered in the neighboring countries as of June 2016. Lebanon is the second host country for Syrian refugees with over 1.049 million refugees registered as of March 2016 for an overall population of less than 4.5 million (representing more than 23% of the population). Prior to this crisis, Lebanon was already hosting half a million Palestinian refugees; the pressure on the Lebanese government and local population is very high.

    In April 2015, the United Nations Security Council declared that the international community has to help Lebanon in its efforts to host more than 1 million refugees from neighboring Syria. Since the beginning of March 2015, the government of Lebanon, through the General Security Directorate, is enforcing entry regularization among refugees entering from Syria. The Lebanese government has also asked the UNHCR to temporary stop the registration process, hence new refugees and new born babies cannot be registered anymore and refugees that arrived after the 5th of January 2015 have been deregistered (around 11,319 individuals).

    While Palestinian refugees are settled in camps, there are no official camps for Syrian refugees in Lebanon. On a case by case basis, the government may authorize the establishment of formal tented settlements (FTS). However, Syrian refugees are mainly settled in small shelter units (SSU), collective shelters (CS) or informal settlements (IS). The spillover of the Syrian crisis into Lebanon compounded pre-existing vulnerabilities among the Lebanese society. Refugee populations have in many cases settled in areas inhabited by impoverished and vulnerable Lebanese communities further stretching limited or non-existent sources of income and public services at the local level. This situation will place an increased economic strain on the families, and in addition to the expected decrease in basic assistance due to low funding levels, an escalation in negative coping mechanisms (such as begging, child labor, child marriages, sexual services for food/accommodation, petty crime, etc.) might be witnessed.

    Our action in the field:

    Since 2012, PUI has been actively involved in the Lebanon emergency response to the Syrian crisis with presence in the North (Akkar), Mount Lebanon and South (Saida) of Lebanon.

    In 2016/2017, PUI´s strategy in the country is based on two programmatic axes:

    • Humanitarian Assistance Program: to provide a protection-based humanitarian assistance and services for the most vulnerable refugees and host communities affected by the Syrian crisis;

    Resilience Program: to reinforce the self-resilience and resilience of the affected communities through the development and strengthening of community-based structures.

    As part of our activities in Lebanon, we are looking for a Human Resources Coordinator

    The Human Resources Coordinator is responsible for the HR strategy, policies and procedures at mission level in addition to the good management of the human resources and the related administrative/legal records for PUI’s mission in Lebanon. He/she is responsible for the good HR management of national employees within the framework of the country legislation, HR policies of PUI and donors requirements. He/she is also responsible for the administrative HR management of expatriates.

    • Human resource management: s/he is responsible for the administrative management of local teams, in order to outline and update the HR management procedures and tools at mission level, in accordance with the employment legislation in the country of mission and the HR policies of PUI. (Recruitment, appraisals, training, salaries, end of contract, etc). S/he monitors any risks associated with HR management.
    • International staff administration: In collaboration with the HOM, S/he is responsible for the administrative management of international teams
    • Administration and legal management: s/he supervises the HR related administrative and legal records and guarantees that the status and functioning of the mission are in accordance with the legislation and requirements of the country of mission.

    Organization: Mayday Rescue
    Country: Turkey
    Closing date: 25 Sep 2016

    Mayday Rescue is looking for a highly motivated Human Capital Management Officer

    Do you want to be a part of a dynamic and dedicated team that helps save lives and strengthen communities? Are you driven by the idea of leaving your mark on the HR structure of an ambitious start-up organisation? And are you excited to build up HR data-systems? Then you are the person we are looking for.

    About Mayday Rescue

    Mayday Rescue’s core belief is that the most resilient communities are those able to help themselves.

    We are an Istanbul-based non-profit with the overall objective of helping to save lives and strengthen communities. We provide training, equipment, capacity building, outreach, and advocacy services to grassroots emergency response organisations in communities entering, enduring, or emerging from conflict, instability and disaster. Find out more about us on www.Maydayrescue.org and by following @MaydayRescue on Twitter.

    The White helmets

    Our primary focus is the Batal (Hero) Programme that provides support to The White Helmets (Syria Civil Defence), a volunteer civilian search-and-rescue organisation that saves lives and brings hope in Syria. The White Helmets has grown into a nation-wide organisation of almost 2,900 personnel. To date, the White Helmets have rescued over 60,000 people within Syria and in addition they have been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

    About the team and the job

    You will be the second addition to Mayday’s newly established Human Capital Management (HCM) team, with the strategic objective to be an integrated part of Mayday organisational development and business.

    Your foremost role will be to support Mayday management as they strive to be the best leaders for their colleagues.

    As the Human Capital Management Officer (HCMO), you will work closely with, and report to, the HR Director. You will help to professionalize the entire HCM cycle, including recruitment, hiring and on-boarding, people development, retention, HR legal and grievances, and off-boarding. The HCM cycle is the core focus of the team and therefore the Human Capital Management Officer’s focus will be to help hire, develop and retain Mayday’s most important asset: our employees.

    Your overall responsibilities

    Your overall responsibility will be to develop, manage and implement a digital HCM system to match Mayday needs to lean administrative and HR procedures; and, on a daily basis, control and adjust the system in line with the HCM cycle.

    As our Human Capital Management Officer, you will also be responsible for adapting and improving existing policies, processes, and practices, as well as implementing new ones to build up the HCM system. In this role you will have considerable independence, and will be expected to take initiative and responsibility and to be creative in your approach. At the same time there will be a constructive and positive HCM/HR sharing partnership with the HR Director, and as a person you will need to be a good fit with the spirit and mission of Mayday Rescue.

    When the new Mayday procedures and systems have been developed, you will—in a team effort—help roll out all needed policies, procedures, and systems for the entire HCM cycle, and help construct a staff handbook.

    Your qualifications

    Required experience

    To be considered for the role you must have a Bachelor’s degree (Master’s degree preferred) in business administration, human resources, or a similar discipline. Additionally, you must also have:

    · At least 3 years of experience in human resources administration with organisations conducting project implementation in the fields of development, humanitarian action, or stabilisation.

    · Demonstrable experience with data systems, recruitment, hiring processes, on-boarding, admin, and admin/HR procedures—and you must still be eager to develop your HR skills!

    · Proficiency with Microsoft Office, especially Excel, and general computer literacy; experience with HCM database systems is strongly preferred.

    · Functionally native spoken and written English; excellent written and oral communication skills.

    · Proficiency in Arabic and/or Turkish a strong advantage

    Personal competencies

    · Strong organisational abilities, interpersonal skills, and cultural sensitivity/ability to work in a multicultural environment. You will be working with war-zone search-and-rescue volunteers — a sense of humour, flexibility and patience will be required.

    · Self-motivation, innovation, creativity and problem-solving ability; proven ability to innovate, drive change and build systems in a dynamic, loosely structured environment with minimal supervision.

    How to apply:

    Interested?

    If you are interested in applying, please email a CV and cover letter to HCM Director Gitte Lundgaard Carlsen at gitte@maydayrescue.org. Shortlisted applicants will be asked to participate in an interview (either in person or over Skype, depending on availability). Please be advised that only shortlisted applicants will be contacted for an interview.

    Closing date for this announcement is 25 September 2016; however, interviews and selection process will begin around the 20 September and will continue on a rolling basis as applications are received until the position is filled.

    Greece: Administrator / Logistician

    Organization: SolidarityNow
    Country: Greece
    Closing date: 15 Mar 2016

    Position: Administrator / Logistician

    Contract duration: 10 months (renewable)

    Location: Athens – Greece (with frequent travelling to Thessaloniki)

    Starting Date: ASAP

    Status: Full Time

    Background on SolidarityNow

    SolidarityNow (SN) was founded in 2013 upon an initiative of the Open Society Foundations (OSF). SN acts as a network of people and organizations working together to alleviate the suffering of those worst affected by the socio-economic crisis. Until now SN has supported and funded over 70 projects around Greece in the areas of legal, medical, psycho-social support, education and culture and job-creation amongst others.

    SN’s initial intervention took place in the wider area of Thessaloniki and Athens through Solidarity Centers; these are “one stop shops”, hosting a variety of civil society organizations and covering a wide range of relief and context-related services and actions (i.e. medical aid, legal and psycho-social support, employability support, human rights monitoring, promotion, protection and advocacy).

    SN is also greatly involved in the recent emergency response related to refugees and migrants arriving in the country. During summer 2015, SN was the only donor that allocated a total of more than 6 million euros for a blend of projects raising from emergency response to medium and longer term concepts as migrants’ integration and anti-trafficking.

    Solidarity Now Response to Population on the Move Crisis

    “What is unfolding today in front of Greece, Europe, and the whole world is not a refugee crisis. It is a crisis of solidarity”.

    Considering the urgent needs of displaced people as they arrive in Greece, “SolidarityNow” supports the implementation of programs with donations exceeding 10 million euros.

    The projects and actions have been chosen to offer assistance to these populations through emergency services and by following a holistic approach. Among them, are projects of direct support towards the Asylum and First Reception Service, the communication and advocacy efforts of MSF, the operation of the MDM-Greece Polyclinic in Patra where the Regional Asylum Office for Western Greece is also co-sheltered and the National Rapporteur on trafficking. These programs give priority to the immediate relief of refugee and migrant populations while also supporting advocacy and awareness-raising activities in an effort to promote an effective response to needs, as they arise. Finally, they balance support between civil society organizations and state actors.

    “SolidarityNow” supports 24 programs in total to meet the needs of the Populations on the Move.

    o Health: 6

    o Legal Support: 4

    o Housing, Relief & Necessities: 8

    o Information & Protection: 4

    o Advocacy & Awareness: 2

    Programme Context

    Since Greece’s entry points became the playing field of a refugee crisis, SN has been intervening by supporting a number of state and non-state actors on the ground in the Dodecanese and North-Eastern Aegean islands that are most under pressure (Lesvos, Kos, Chios, Leros, Tilos), as well as Athens, Thessaloniki and the Northern Greek borders. The support offered ranges from psycho-social support to People on the Move, distribution of NFIs, short term accommodation or shelter, supporting the national asylum service and the first reception center, and reinforcing the protection of vulnerable groups amongst others.

    Athens and Thessaloniki represent the two urban points of transit in Greece in the refugee crisis; recently, they have also become the two main locations for temporary accommodation. At the moment, 32,000 people are stranded in Greece while the FYROM border remains marginally open.

    SN recently applied to a relevant UNHCR Call for Proposals and got funded in order to implement a hosting scheme in support of asylum seekers and people eligible to participate into the relocation procedure.

    The overall objective of the proposed intervention –i.e. the Solidarity Now Hosting scheme project- is to contribute to the planned increase of accommodation for asylum seekers (including Relocation) and to the establishment of 20,000 reception places, as per occupancy rate.

    The specific objective of the project is to create 700 places of temporary accommodation for asylum seekers (including Relocation), 600 in Athens/Attica area and 100 in Thessaloniki & surrounding municipalities’ area.

    The project seeks to encourage and engage local civilians and settled migrants legally residing in Greece in a practical demonstration of “solidarity in action”, by opening up their homes to the target group in the shape of an innovative hosting scheme and thus ensuring the dignified accommodation of vulnerable people for a time-bound period.

    Job purpose

    South Sudan: Un(e) Responsable Technique Sécurité Alimentaire, Nutritionnelle et Moyens d’Existence (SANME) au Tchad

    Organization: Première Urgence – Aide Médicale Internationale
    Country: South Sudan
    Closing date: 30 Apr 2016

    Première Urgence Internationale (PUI) est une Organisation Non Gouvernementale de solidarité internationale, à but non lucratif, apolitique et laïque. PUI se mobilise au quotidien pour couvrir les besoins fondamentaux des victimes civiles mises en péril, marginalisées ou exclues par les effets de catastrophes naturelles, de guerres et de situations d’effondrement économique. L’objectif est d’aider les populations déracinées dans l’urgence, tout en leur permettant de regagner rapidement autonomie et dignité. L’association mène environ 140 projets par an, dans les domaines de la sécurité alimentaire, la santé, la nutrition, la réhabilitation d’infrastructures, l’eau et l’assainissement et la relance économique. PUI intervient en appui à près de 4 millions de personnes dans 22 pays, en Afrique, en Asie, au Moyen-Orient, dans le Caucase et en France.

    Découvrez notre histoire et nos valeurs

    Situation et besoins humanitaires

    Suite à la crise du Darfour, la région Est du Tchad a été sérieusement déstabilisée (240 000 réfugiés soudanais et plus de 170 000 déplacés internes). En 2016 les régions du Ouaddaï et du Wadi Fira comptent encore respectivement 110.000 et 95.000 réfugiés soudanais. Par ailleurs dans ces régions 20 à 30% de la population locale a encore besoin d’aide humanitaire afin de garantir sa sécurité alimentaire et nutritionnelle. Cette frange de la population peine encore aujourd’hui à profiter d’un retour au calme et d’une reprise relative des activités économiques.

    La région continue de connaître les chocs propres à la bande sahélienne (sécheresse, attaques de criquets), chocs qui s’ajoutent à d’importantes faiblesses structurelles (peu de services, systèmes de veille inopérants, indicateurs de santé faibles, etc.). En effet la récurrence de crises alimentaires entraine des effets durables. De nombreux ménages sont toujours dans une logique d’endettement que les saisons agricoles incertaines ne permettent pas d’effacer. PUI observe chaque année une période de soudure importante pour environ un tiers de la population de la région qui consomme l’ensemble de ses réserves de céréales dès le mois d’avril. A l’échelle du pays et au début 2016 le nombre de personnes en situation d’insécurité alimentaire est de 2,2 millions de personnes, ce qui représente dans certaines régions jusqu’à 44 % de la population. Dès lors, la mise en place de mécanismes de filets sociaux revêt une importance cruciale pour éviter une nouvelle crise alimentaire et nutritionnelle.

    Notre action sur le terrain

    L’approche de PUI au Tchad en 2016 est de capitaliser sur les interventions passées. Cela reflète la stratégie globale de PUI qui propose de couvrir les besoins des populations vulnérables de façon intégrée afin d’avoir l’impact le plus important non pas sur un seul et unique secteur d’intervention mais sur plusieurs. Les activités prévues pour 2016 ou déjà actuellement en cours de réalisation peuvent être présentées comme suit :

    – Une réponse d’urgence afin de répondre aux crises alimentaires par couverture des besoins en santé, en nutrition et en sécurité alimentaire (financements OFDA, ECHO, PAM) ;

    – Une approche visant la résilience des familles les plus vulnérables, afin d’améliorer les capacités d’absorption des chocs et de rétablissement rapides (relèvement précoce, développement à moyen/long terme) par des interventions dans les domaines de la santé, de la nutrition, de la sécurité alimentaire, de l’environnement, de l’eau et assainissement et par le renforcement des capacités locales (EuropeAid).

    PUI est un memebre actif et reconnu des instances de coordination humanitaire au Tchad (l’initiative AGIR travaillant sur des réponses aux crises chroniques en zone Sahélienne).

    South Sudan: A Health Program Manager in South Sudan

    Organization: Première Urgence – Aide Médicale Internationale
    Country: South Sudan
    Closing date: 30 Apr 2016

    Première Urgence Internationale (PUI) is a non-governmental, non-profit, non-political and non-religious international aid organization. Our teams are committed to supporting civilians’ victims of marginalization and exclusion, or hit by natural disasters, wars and economic collapses, by answering their fundamental needs. Our aim is to provide emergency relief to uprooted people in order to help them recover their dignity and regain self-sufficiency. The association leads in average 140 projects by year in the following sectors of intervention: food security, health, nutrition, construction and rehabilitation of infrastructures, water, sanitation, hygiene and economic recovery. PUI is providing assistance to around 4 million people in 22 countries – in Africa, Asia, Middle East, Caucasus and Europe.

    Humanitarian situation and needs:

    In the Republic of South Sudan (SSD), more than 2 years of armed conflict have shattered the lives of millions of people. 2014 and 2015 have been years of continued instability due to unresolved border issues (between Sudan and South Sudan) and more importantly due to the civil war between SPLM/A forces loyal to President S. Kiir and SPLA-IO loyal to the rebel leader R. Machar, former vice-president. As of beginning of 2015; at least six out of 10 states are affected by armed violence, 1.66 million people have been displaced within the country, more than 640.000 refugees have fled out of the country, 3.9 million people are severely food insecure. Among IDPs, about 180.000 people have found refuge in UNMIS PoCs. All this needs to be considered in a very young country within which virtually the entire population has experienced forced displacement at least 1 time and hence where resilience is massively jeopardized.

    Northern Bahr el Ghazal (NBeG) and Warrap states (where PUI is respectively operating since Feb. 2015 and planning to start operating in spring 2016) have been and still are largely neglected by humanitarian assistance because of their peripheral situation with regards to the armed conflict. However, a deterioration of the humanitarian context is to be noted and new displacements are still an option for the coming months.

    Our action in the field:

    PUI has been operating in SSD since February 2015 and intends to extend the coverage of its current intervention. Addressing urgent needs of the most vulnerable in the targeted areas is planned through the following strategic objectives:

    – Improvement of the access to health care services

    – Reduction of the risks associated with food insecurity and undernutrition

    Other strategic objectives will be considered in 2016 and will be used to define complementary pulti-sector needs assessemnts in the area where PUI is already operational but might also cover new counties/states depending on the evolution of the political/security situation. The sectors PUI would like to investigate are the following: Shelter & NFIs, Water Sanitation & Hygiene, Rehabilitation & Construction and Economic Recovery.

    In 2015 PUI has implemented the following projects in the county of Aweil North (NBeG State):

    – Access to Primary Health Care services:

    A Primary Health Care Centre has been fully operational in Malual Centre Payam and associated to outreach and community based activities in an area where host community is massively vulnerable and where movements are stil recorded. The targeted area is virtually free from other type of humanitarian intervention. This project is funded by ECHO DG, will be extended in time in 2016 and shall be scaled-up in 2016 by the operating of a second PHCC in West Gogrial county (Warrap State).

    – Food Security and Nutrition:

    Food distributions have targeted about 600 IDP households in Aweil North County as well as the families of patients discharged after having been treated for Acute Sever Undernutrition in the PHCC. This project has been supported by CIAA in 2015 and has also allowed distributing daily food parcels to patients and care-takers at the PHCC level. This project is supposed to be extended in 2016.

    The financial volume of operation in 2016 should be superior to the volume of 2015 thanks to the scaling up of operations in Warrap county.
