Job Description

 

All NRC employees are expected to work in accordance with the organisation’s core values: dedication, innovation, inclusivity and accountability. These attitudes and believes shall guide our actions and relationships.
Central African Republic (CAR) is experiencing a humanitarian crisis, with more than 600,000 internally displaced, and 500,000 of refugees in neighbouring countries, and many more affected. NRC started the current country programme in CAR in February 2014, and is currently operating in five field offices; Berberati in the South West, Dekoa in the Centre West, Kaga Bandoro in the Centre North, Ndele in the north, Alindao in the southeast, as well as the capital office in Bangui.

The programme portfolio includes all five core competencies of NRC. ICLA (Information, Counselling and Legal Assistance), Livelihood and Food Security, WASH, Shelter and Education, Mediation, as well as Protection and Community Based Planning programmes.
