Nigeria: Emergency PM, Emergency Nutrition and Protection, Nigeria
Job Title: Emergency Program Manager I
Reports to: Emergency Coordinator
Department: Emergency Programs
Salary Grade: 9
Since the crisis in Northeast Nigeria escalated in 2013, the situation for IDPs and returnees has continued to worsen. A growing number of people are in urgent need of assistance, and alarming rates of acute malnutrition have been reported. The re-opening of Local Government Areas (LGAs), many which have been inaccessible for an extended period of time, has led to the identification of new IDP locations in Borno State, while ongoing conflict between the military and insurgent groups has resulted in the influx of more IDPs into Maiduguri metropolis and the establishment of several spontaneous camps. The number of IDPs in both Maiduguri, Jere and other LGAs continue to increase — with the current reports indicating a total of 1.6 million IDPs in Borno State alone.
Through funding from USAID’s Office of Food for Peace (FFP) and other donors, CRS is implementing Nutrition programming in Borno state. The programs support IDPs and host families with Moderate Acute Malnutrition (MAM) with supplemental feeding and counselling sessions.
CRS mainstreams gender and protection across all its programs taking into consideration participant safety, dignity and meaningful access to assistance supported by staff behavior, feedback mechanisms, communication and community involvement. CRS primarily uses direct implementation approaches and remote management to implement its programming in the Northeast.
You will manage and provide technical oversight of the development and implementation of the Country Program (CP) Emergency Nutrition and Gender/Protection programming ensuring effective systems and processes are in place that support high-quality programming advancing Catholic Relief Services’ (CRS) work in serving the poor and vulnerable. Your management skills and knowledge will ensure that the CP delivers high-quality program ming and continuously work towards improving the impact of its Emergency Response.
