About the role:
CARE Canada is looking for a Humanitarian Program Coordinator for a 1 year contract.
ABOUT THE ROLE / WHAT THE ROLE OFFERS
CARE Canada’s Global Programs (GP) unit is responsible for ensuring the effective implementation of the organization’s global programs in both development and humanitarian assistance, focusing on the injustice of poverty and gender inequality. In humanitarian assistance, CARE Canada is committed to meeting the urgent life-saving needs of women, men, girls and boys affected by disasters and conflict, consistent with CARE’s humanitarian mandate and the CARE Humanitarian Strategy (2013-2020).
Under the leadership of a Humanitarian Advisor, you will support the quality implementation of a diversified portfolio of humanitarian and nexus projects in line with humanitarian principles and best practices, through guidance and support to country offices around the world, including programmatic, administrative, financial, and contractual elements.
Being the primary point of contact for country office colleagues on their Canadian-funded projects, you will thoughtfully engage with their needs, aligned with our core values and team culture, with the goal of forging strong, trusting relationships. You will help to ensure that humanitarian programs are delivered according to international standards and with a gender in emergencies lens and localization approach embedded, connecting local program teams with sectoral technical guidance and capacity throughout CARE Canada and the CARE Confederation.

Because of the nature of the work, demands are fast-paced and unpredictable. To thrive in this job, you will need to be flexible and be willing to both lead and work as part of a close-knit team when needed.
