Massive NGO Jobs in Kenya - IRC

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover, and gain control of their lives.

Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the IRC works with people forced to flee from war, conflict and disaster and the host communities which support them, as well as those who remain within their homes and communities. At work today in over 40 countries and 22 U.S. cities, we improve outcomes in the areas of health, safety, economic wellbeing, education and power.
The IRC is a global leader in transforming the lives of women and girls. The Gender Equality (GE) Unit is a new technical unit at the IRC focused on narrowing the gender gap in humanitarian aid, and ensuring that we contribute to the equality of women and girls in all of our programs – by working to establish a context where men, women, boys, and girls enjoy the same rights and opportunities.


The IRC believes there is a symbiotic relationship between how we operate as an organization, and the success of the programming that we deliver and changes we seek to make in local communities.
The GE Unit, therefore, is also tasked with partnering with operations departments to ensure that IRC is a gender equitable employer. Together, the relevant departments and the GE team will support the necessary changes to the IRC’s internal policies and practices to promote the equal access to opportunities for all of our staff.

Regional Emergency Coordinator
Location: Kenya (IHUB)
The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover, and gain control of their future.
Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the IRC is supporting people forced to flee from war, conflict and disaster and the host communities which support them, as well as those who remain within their homes and communities.
At work today in over 40 countries and 22 U.S. cities, we restore safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted and struggling to endure. The IRC leads the way from harm to home.
A member of the East Africa regional support team, the Regional Emergency Coordinator (REC) will work closely with countries in the region as well as with the IRC’s Emergency Unit.
The IRC’s East Africa regional support team: 
The East Africa region is one of IRC’s largest and most diverse regions, spanning seven countries – including Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Uganda, Yemen, and Zimbabwe – and with an annual portfolio over $140 million.
Currently, the region is in crisis – the inter-related issues of conflict, drought, food insecurity, and displacement are at record levels. Most of the countries in the region have ongoing emergency responses and are working to further prepare for new or protracted emergency situations.
The East Africa regional support team supports country programs to analyze the situation on the ground, identify the appropriate response to meet the needs, and facilitate additional support required from other parts of the IRC. The regional team serves as the bridge between country programs and headquarters departments/units.
With close proximity and strong relationships between countries and the region, the regional support team provides headquarters with real-time information and maintains a regional perspective on contextual issues that span multiple countries.
The IRC’s Emergency Unit:
The IRC’s Emergency Unit leads or oversees IRC’s global emergency preparedness and response activities. The mission of the Emergency Unit is to help meet the immediate survival needs and reduce suffering in conflict or disaster affected populations during the acute phase of an emergency. The Emergency Unit also works in protracted emergencies, where the risk to life may be reduced but the population is still subjected to rights abuses and a lack of basic services.
Emergency response is a global mandate of the organization and thus depending on the emergency situation, a response can be led a country team (default) or the global Emergency Response Team. The Emergency Unit is also charged with enhancing the IRC’s global and country level emergency preparedness capacity.
This is done by supporting the development and training of IRC Country Emergency Teams (CET), assisting in the development of emergency focused partnerships with local civil society organizations, supporting the IRC country teams in emergency preparedness planning, maintaining regional and global capacity to rapidly identify and deploy qualified emergency response personnel.
Scope of Work
The Regional Emergency Coordinator (REC) will be situated in IRC’s East Africa Region while working closely with the Emergency Unit, country programs, and regional support team colleagues, to realize the IRC’s strategy to be an operational leader in the field of Emergency Preparedness and Response. The REC is charged with supporting and empowering country programs to respond to emergencies chiefly through an intentional and continual investment into Emergency Preparedness.
The REC will spend most of his/her time advancing the IRC’s Emergency Preparedness levels within the East Africa Region. Additionally, as country programs launch emergency responses, the REC will provide remote technical support, and in a small number of instances is anticipated to offer short term support in country.
The REC will report to the East Africa Deputy Regional Director and will work closely with the Emergency Unit’s Deputy Director for Emergency Preparedness, the Emergency Preparedness Team and the network of other RECs to assure highly integrated work.

Responsibilities

Emergency Preparedness Planning at Country Level
·         Support and facilitatethe Emergency Preparedness Planning (EPP) process of IRC country teams in the region’s high-risk countries, supporting the country program with the finalization, feedback process, approval and recurring review processes of the EPP documents as well as follow-up on progress of the country team against the implementation of the Preparedness Action Plan which is part of the EPP. This also includes the facilitation of the EPP workshop.
·         Support and facilitatethe process of regularly monitoring emergency triggers and drivers and generating a regional trigger monitoring dashboard.
·         Develop a regional emergency preparedness perspective through analyzing the EPPs from within the region and identifying hazards and threats that could affect neighboring countries and support the development and maintenance of a regional emergency-risk monitoring and preparedness tool. Where required, the REC will also develop a regional approach to risk reduction and/or resilience and facilitate the streamlining and/or implementation of that approach in existing country operations and programs.
·         Supportthe execution of Emergency Preparedness Rating (EPR) surveys and actively follow up on the results with the Region’s country teams. Provide support to Watchlist country programs in the Region to achieve an EPR score of 3.0 or higher.
·         SupportIRC country teams in the region to conduct Real-Time Evaluations (RTE) for country-led emergency responses and ensure that lessons learned from the RTE are proactively fed back into the preparedness process.

This includes connecting country teams with appropriate internal and external emergency preparedness training resources and opportunities.
·         Provide inputto the Emergency Unit’s Senior Emergency Preparedness Coordinator into the process of further development and improvement of capacity and competency development tools and resources across the organization.
Partnership Development for Emergencies
The IRC’s new strategy places emphasis on the establishing and development of partnerships with local civil society organizations (CSOs). In this, the IRC will clearly move away from primarily sub-contracting out elements of program implementation to a partnership model that centers on actually investing in CSO partners to help them strengthen their own emergency response capacities. The REC will be instrumental in building relationships around shared objectives and vision – rather than only focusing on project and partners’ performance.
·         Support the IRC country teams in the process of evaluating and selecting potential CSO partners in high risk countries and support the establishment, development and maintenance of these partnerships with a particular focus on partnering/collaboration in emergencies.
·         When needed, providecoordination and co-operation support to country teams and CSO partners during an emergency response.

Emergency Response Support
Working closely with regional leadership and other members of the regional support team, the REC will provide technicalsupport to country teams as they launch emergency responses. The REC will encourage the realization of response plans developed as a part of their emergency preparedness work.  The REC will, for the most part, provide remote support to CETs; and in a small number of instances can travel in country to provide hands on support and leadership in the setting up of an emergency response.
The advisory support may include, but is not limited to the following components:
·         Advise and supportcountry programs with collating the required data to request an emergency classification and provide follow up with the Emergency Unit if necessary.

·         Advisecountry programs with regard to the activation of specific emergency protocols.
·         Advise and support country programs in the deployment of their CET.
·         Assistcountry teams in liaising with the Emergency Unit with regard to specific support for country-led emergency responses. E.g. in case of a shortage of deployable response staff on country level, the REC will support the country team to request support from the IRC’s Emergency Response Team or Emergency Roster.
·         Upon request, advise and assist local partner organizations in the setting up of an emergency response.
