All NRC employees are expected to work in accordance with the organisation’s core values: dedication, innovation, inclusivity and accountability. These attitudes and believes shall guide our actions and relationships.
NRC currently has over 3,000 staff across the Middle East dedicated to assisting people affected by conflict in Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, and Palestine. Its interventions are based upon its programming expertise in the Core Competencies of Shelter, Education, Water and Sanitation Hygiene, Livelihoods and Food Security, along with Information Counselling and legal Assistance (ICLA) to vulnerable displaced people that were forced to flee.
Jordan hosts nearly 670,000 registered Syrian refugees, on average they have lived in in Jordan for over seven years. Often cited as amongst the most welcoming environment for refugees in the region, Jordan has put in place over the years a myriad of progressive policies in support of refugee presence in the country. Despite tremendous efforts and goodwill from the Jordanian population, its government and the international community, over the past decade, effective progress has been limited. Since the border with Syria re-opened in October 2018, 7% of Syrian refugees have returned and no more than 1% resettle annually. In addition, there are nearly 90,000 refugees of other nationalities residing in Jordan and registered with UNHCR, who have quite a different set of needs than Syrian refugees.
The purpose of the Head of Programme position is to develop and ensure implementation of holistic high-quality programmes.
