Do you have a vision for a better humanitarian response in Sudan?
NRC returned to Sudan in 2020, primarily to help over three million people affected by armed conflict and displacement in the country. We are currently establishing three area-based operations outside of Khartoum, including for South Sudanese refugees in White Nile state, conflict-affected communities in South Kordofan, and people in protracted states of internal displacement in the greater Darfur region. Moreover, we have a broad programme ambition to scale up an innovative approach to durable solutions and protection, operate in hard-to-reach areas of the country, and also offer a rapid response capacity.
We seek a Sudanese colleague to become our Head of Programme, essentially a Deputy Country Director.
We need someone who can see beyond the status quo, to collaborate across and integrate the work of multiple teams, to help make sure that NRC offers a positive and transformative impact on the lives of millions of vulnerable and displaced people in Sudan.
Apart from having a visionary capacity, the professional needs to be able to work with vibrant multi-cultural teams, coordinate our project cycle management processes for the complete grants portfolio (including monitoring and evaluation), and absorb and apply new approaches to programming, such as through cash and markets-based initiatives or leverage technology and digital capacities.
Most importantly, we need someone who offers empathetic and strategic insights in equal measure, and brings a competitive drive motivated only by the need to do more and better for people given the urgency and complexity of the humanitarian situation in Sudan.
