Intersos – Posizioni aperte in Congo e Afghanistan

Intersos è alla ricerca di candidati per ricoprire due posizioni, un Project Manager per la sua operatività in Afghanistan e un Agronomo per la Repubblica Democratica del Congo. La scadenza per la presentazione delle candidature è fissata per il 15 giugno 2013.

 

INTERSOS, in the framework of its activities in Afghanistan, is currently selecting candidates for the following position.

 

JOB TITLE: Project Manager DRR
DUTY STATION: Afghanistan
START DATE: ASAP    

 

INTERSOS is an independent non-profit humanitarian organization committed to assist the victims of natural disasters and armed conflicts. Its activities are based on the principles of solidarity, justice, human dignity, equality of rights and opportunities, and respect for diversity and coexistence, paying special attention to the most vulnerable and unprotected people.

 

INTERSOS has been present in Afghanistan since October 2001, with its main office in Kabul and Sub Offices in Jalalabad, Maimana, Kandahar, Heart and Lashkar Gah.
INTERSOS has worked on various aspects of the Afghan emergency, with a main focus on repatriation and returns, water and sanitation, reconstruction, humanitarian demining, mine risk education, and institutional building.
INTERSOS has also taken an active role in enhancing child protection mechanisms.
The situation in Afghanistan is marked by political uncertainty, increased military activity and general insecurity which have heightened children’s vulnerability to conflict related violence including in areas previously considered as relatively safe. Unaccompanied and separated children represent, together with the street children, some the most vulnerable groups in Afghanistan, in terms of the potential risks and the weakness of social and legal protection networks.
INTERSOS will base its action on the experience and lesson learnt gathered during the past years of intervention in favor of the most vulnerable categories of children in the country, facilitating the establishment of a more comprehensive inter-provincial protection system for the unaccompanied minors through the strengthening of the already established protection networks in the Western Region and in Faryab Province.
