The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) is a non-governmental, humanitarian organization with 60 years of experience in helping to create a safer and more dignified life for refugees and internally displaced people. NRC advocates for the rights of displaced populations and offers assistance within the shelter, education, emergency food security, legal assistance, and water,sanitation and hygiene sectors.
The Norwegian Refugee Council has approximately 3500 committed and competent employees involved in projects across four continents. In addition, NRC runs one of the world’s largest standby rosters -NORCAP, with 650 professionals, ready to be deployed on 72 hours notice when a crisis occurs As a humanitarian and emergency relief organization, the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) has been operational in Sudan since 2004 providing assistance to IDPs, returnees, refugees and host communities in areas of significant return. In February 2004 the Country Office was established in Khartoum, followed by field offices in Rumbek in November (the then provincial capital of Southern Sudan), in Nyala, South Darfur, and in Kadugli, Southern Kordofan. In 2006 NRC closed operations in Darfur.
In August 2006, NRC opened an office in Juba, Central Equatoria (CE), which has since replaced Khartoum as the Country Office; in 2007, NRC opened field offices in Aweil, Northern Bahr El Ghazal (NBeG), and then in Alek, Warrap in 2011. Programmatically, NRC currently operates an integrated programme providing all of NRC’s core competencies: Education, Shelter (School Construction), Food Security and Livelihoods (FSL), WASH and Information, Counselling and Legal Assistance (ICLA). In 2014, NRC will expand operations to new areas in Jonglei State where the conflict is convergence of two different but interlinked issues: inter-communal violence and ongoing hostilities between the SPLA on one side and non-state armed actors. Violent cattle raids, many of which are driven by inter-communal rivalries, have continued to take place across most counties of Jonglei State In Warrap State, NRC has provided shelter support focusing on both permanent and Emergency types. In 2014, Shelter work will continue with a concentration on the construction of primary schools, temporary learning spaces and additional structures at the existing YEP centres. Most of the construction activities will continue to incorporate basic skills training for the youth. The Shelter programme is also expected to manage NRC’s response to basic needs of returnees and IDPs in Warrap State through the provision of NFIs and emergency shelter kits.
The job purpose is for the Project Manager(PM) Shelter to continue the shelter activities and explore opportunities for expansion in Warrap State. The PM is responsible for the overall planning and implementation of the Shelter project and for the development and capacity building of the national staff working on the project
