INTERSOS is an independent humanitarian organization that assists the victims of natural disasters, armed conflicts and exclusion. Its activities are based on the principles of solidarity, justice, human dignity, equality of rights and opportunities, respect for diversity and coexistence, paying special attention to the most vulnerable people.
We are recruiting to fill the position below:
Job Title: Project Manager
Job Code: SR-49-376
Contract duration: 6 months
Reporting to: Head of Mission
Supervision of: CCCM coordinator and protection coordinator
General Context of the Project
The internally displaced persons (IDPs) are taking shelter in some relatively safe Local Government Areas (LGAs). The population of Greater Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state, has more than doubled; it has gone from 1 million to 2 million. The influx of people displaced from other areas of the state has worsened the situation of overcrowding in already inadequate living conditions. This places a huge strain on infrastructure, resources and basic services, as well as on the host communities. There are also great concerns for the LGAs, even though these areas are relatively safe compared to the deplorable shelter conditions faced by IDPs and host communities alike.
In consideration of this context, INTERSOS is currently implementing programs to provide temporary and emergency shelters for internally displaced populations, Camp Coordination and Management. By doing so, the organization is improving protection and living conditions for IDPs living in host communities in the Ngala, Monguno, Banki and Damasak areas.
Additionally, since 2015, INTERSOS has been conducting protection monitoring activities in Mayo-Tsanga, Mayo-Sava and Logone Et-Chary in Cameroun, in partnership with UNHCR, and community service interventions in favor of Nigerian refugees and asylum-seekers in the Minawao refugee camp, which hosts 62,328 refugees. Through this activity, the INTERSOS Cameroun mission is able to monitor a vast area along the border of the two countries including Waza, Fotokol and Kolofata. In this area, multiple incidents related to the forced return of Nigerian asylum-seekers to Nigeria have been detected and reported.
The presence of INTERSOS personnel on both sides of the border has allowed the organization to develop an excellent understanding of the local dynamics. Supporting the same PoC both in Nigeria and in Cameroun is an added value that helps enhancing the programmatic synergies and the efficiency of communication between the staff from the two missions working at the border.
