All NRC employees are expected to work in accordance with the organization’s core values: dedication, innovation, inclusivity, and accountability. These attitudes and beliefs shall guide our actions and relationships.
The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) is an independent humanitarian organization helping people forced to flee. We work in crises across 35 countries, providing emergencies and long-term assistance to millions of people every year. We stand up for people forced to flee, advocating their rights.
Since 2012, NRC Jordan provides shelter, education, youth activities and livelihood opportunities to Syrian refugees in camps and host communities. NRC Jordan also strives to use cash as a modality of assistance wherever feasible, relevant, and appropriate, as well as increasingly commits to applying systems-thinking and market-based approaches in the development of its programming. In particular, our livelihoods team enables youth and adults to access jobs through the demand-driven “Transition to Employment” process, which includes the screening of employers and job seekers, skills-for-work training, mentoring, and partnership with the private sector. They provide cash to support entry into the labor market and the transition to employment as well as cash-for-work opportunities for economically vulnerable refugees and Jordanians.
Increasingly, NRC Jordan recognizes the criticality of access to and use of affordable and appropriate financial products and services to mitigate the adverse impact of humanitarian crises on people affected by displacement. Financial inclusion is a foundation to ensure people affected by displacement are included in economic activities that ultimately lead to self-reliance. Without a protected way to save and receive money, people affected by displacement have few options to make transactions and payments and access loans or credit, let alone buy insurance or other more advanced financial products. As a consequence, they struggle to meet their basic needs, become self-reliant, and build a stable life for themselves and their families.
NRC Jordan is seeking a Cash and Markets Program Development Manager (PDM) that specializes in financial inclusion programming for a period of 6 months (short term contract) that will help provide the strategic and technical input needed to develop financial inclusion program models – including components of digital finance-for the country program, including specific solutions that are relevant and appropriate for residents of refugee camps.
The PDM will focus on;
In addition, the PDM will also provide core capacity-building to the Livelihoods Specialist team, program management, and operations staff as needed, on financial products and services, formal and informal financial markets and the use of alternative finance in support of displaced populations.
