Jobs vacancies at Norwegian Refugee Council - Grants & Reporting Manager

Closing Date: Sunday, 31 October 2010

Job Title: Grants & Reporting Manager (GRM)

Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC)

The Norwegian Refugee Council 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. We advocate for their rights and assist with shelter, education, food distribution, camp management and legal assistance on return.

Closing date: 31 Oct 2010

Location: Uganda - Gulu

Northern Uganda is presently undergoing a transition from humanitarian to recovery programming. The on-going large-scale return of IDPs, either to their home communities or to transit sites close to their home areas, indicate the IDPs' growing confidence in relative stability and peace in northern Uganda. However, despite these fairly positive trends, the situation for the majority can not in any way be characterized as durable. Vulnerability and poverty persists, and much work remains to be done to ensure that the return process is sustainable.

NRC's present strategy is to bridge the gap between humanitarian assistance and long-term development in northern Uganda. The Education and the Food Security and Livelihood programmes have become the backbone of the Country Programme and will remain so for the next few years, supported by the Information, Counselling and Legal Assistance (ICLA) and by School Construction/Rehabilitation activities.

NRC has worked in Northern Uganda since 1997 and stayed operational during the height of the conflict. The Country Programme is adapting its focus to a changing context, and NRC remains relevant to the Recovery priorities of the region.

The Grant and Reporting Manager reports to the NRC Uganda Country Director and the GRM is going to be part of the Country Managment Team.
