Poste proposé : Technical Advisor, Governance

Job Description :

Founded in 1933 at the behest of Albert Einstein, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) has developed unparalleled expertise in responding to emergencies and helping communities rebuild. The IRC is committed to a culture of bold leadership, innovation, creative partnerships, and, most crucially, accountability to those we serve. At work today in over 40 countries and 28 U.S. cities, IRC restores safety, dignity, and hope to millions who are uprooted. The IRC’s vision is to lead the humanitarian sector through implementing high-impact, cost-effective programs for people affected by crisis and by using our learning and experience to shape policy and practice. To achieve that vision, the IRC’s Technical Excellence (TE) provides technical assistance to IRC’s country program staff and share learnings to influence policy and practice. TE is comprised of five technical units: Economic Recovery and Development; Education; Governance; Health; and Violence Prevention and Response.

The Technical Advisor, Governance, provides leadership and project oversight to governance programming in Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Liberia, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone, such as health and education systems strengthening, peacebuilding, social accountability, civil society strengthening, and city government technical assistance.

Join the International Rescue Committee (IRC) in this role if you would like to support West Africa-based staff in person or remotely to craft, implement and evaluate projects that bring to life our mission! Do you also want to influence, advocate, support research and internal initiatives? If so, come and join a small, dedicated, tolerant and inclusive team of governance advisors!

The Governance Unit supports IRC country programs in crafting and implementing programs that amplify the voice of people whose lives have been impacted by conflict and crisis. Governance programs help them regain control of their future by championing their right to influence the issues affecting their cities, towns, and communities.

To achieve this, we
