Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
Tearfund is looking for an experienced Livelihoods Advisor to provide the technical expertise in managing a livelihoods project in Dohuk and developing future projects in Iraq. With new funding opportunities arising in Livelihoods programming, we are seeking a sectoral expert to support the fundraising process and, once funding is secured, the implementation of Livelihoods projects in line with Tearfund’s Country Strategy for IRAQ.
The Livelihoods Advisor would be responsible to manage the Dohuk Livelihoods Pilot Project; develop and support Livelihoods programme strategy outcomes; provide technical sectoral input to fundraising initiatives; support area co-ordinators and sector project managers with needs assessments, project implementation, monitoring and reporting and project evaluations; provide sector data analysis and trend tracking to support contextually relevant project design; and represent the programme to relevant external audiences, including cluster coordination meetings, donor meetings, other NGOs and relevant local government departments.
The successful candidate will be a qualified Livelihoods specialist with significant relevant humanitarian experience in the implementation of FSL projects in similar conflict-affected contexts. Proven management and leadership skills, coupled with experience in project and financial management are essential.
The role would be based between Dohuk and Erbil with travel as required. The candidate must be able to work in insecure environments, with remote supervision, to tight time frames.
Excellent written and spoken English is required. Applicants must be committed to Tearfund’s Christian beliefs.
All posts involve potential contact with children and the recruitment process will include specific checks related to child protection issues.
This post is initially being offered as a six month contract with the possibility for extension should funding be successfully secured for Livelihoods project implementation.
PLEASE NOTE: Should a national candidate be successful a national salary package will apply.
