Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
We are now looking for an adaptive, forward-leaning, Camp Management Specialist to help lead our NRC Afghanistan programme. An experienced camp management professional who can provide technical direction, conceive new programme possibilities in response to changing needs as well as ensure programme quality and accountability This is an exciting opportunity to work in one of our biggest humanitarian operations.
THIS IS A RE-ADVERTISEMENT, CANDIDATES WHO HAD APPLIED DO NOT NEED TO RE-APPLY.
Afghanistan remains a protracted and complex emergency. Conflict-induced displacement and recurrent natural disasters occur at the same time as ongoing return of Afghan refugees from Pakistan and Iran. The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) established operations in Afghanistan in 2003. We respond across Afghanistan, including in hard-to-access provinces, by providing Information, Counselling and Legal Assistance, Education, Shelter, Food & Livelihoods, Camp Management and Emergency programmes.
NRC Afghanistan started its Camp Management (CM) programme in Afghanistan in late 2016, in the wake of the large-scale refugee returns crisis from Pakistan. Mostly this was for Mobile Site Management and for provision of camp management services in Urban Displacement and Out-of-Camp settings (UDOC). Recently in 2018 the programme has shifted its focus to the large numbers of Afghans displaced by drought and conflict in western and north-western Afghanistan, who are largely clustered in collective and informal sites of displacement. As a second priority, the CM programme is establishing an operation for the informal settlements on the outskirts of Kabul City. The programme is building momentum, greater buy-in, and is fully financed throughout 2019.
ABOUT THE POSITION
The purpose of the Camp Management (CM) Specialist position is for the development of the NRC Afghanistan Camp Management programme, its strategic direction, and quality assurance.
The Camp Management Specialist will report to the head of programmes and will work directly with (but not line manage) one international CM Project Manager, two Afghan CM Coordinators, and their respective teams, all across three of NRC Afghanistan’s five area offices.
