The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world's worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the IRC offers lifesaving care and life-changing assistance to refugees forced to flee from war or disaster. At work today in over 40 countries and 22 U.S. cities, we restore safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted and struggling to endure. The IRC leads the way from harm to home.

The IRC began working in Uganda in 1998 in response to the devastation wrought by rebel group the Lord's Resistance Army in the north of the country. Today, the IRC is helping tens of thousands of people displaced by violence to return home and rebuild their communities, following a cease-fire agreement in 2006. At the same time, in Karamoja—one of the poorest and least developed areas in Uganda—the IRC works with communities affected by violence to promote peace and improve access to services. The IRC in Uganda recently began implementing a new five-year strategic plan that focuses on meeting the unique needs of adolescent girls, strengthening partnerships with the government, civil society and the private sector, promoting accountability and increasing the use of evidence-based approaches. In FY2010, the IRC had an annual program value of $7.7M and employed approximately 180 staff in six locations.

Develop a communication and visibility strategy and support preparation of materials for internal use within the IRC

Partnership Responsibilities
Ensure that partnerships with the government, civil society and private sector actors reflect the IRC's strategic objectives and the local context
Ensure that partnership and sub-grant related administrative processes and procedures are standardized and consistently implemented throughout the program, including pre-award compliance checks, agreements, disbursements, reporting and partner capacity-building
Support program staff in assessing partnership opportunities and ensuring that partners receive appropriate capacity-building support in relation to their needs.

Requirements

At least 3 years of international experience; experience in Africa would be an advantage
Previous successful experience developing projects and writing proposals for public donors
Excellent research and English writing skills

The security situation in Kampala and northern Uganda is calm with non-violent petty street crime being the most significant threat. In Karamoja there are isolated security threats related to inter-clan conflicts and banditry. The IRC will provide the Grants and Partnership manager with shared housing, which is located a walking distance from the IRC's office. This is a two year unaccompanied posting.
