Intersos recruits 01 Protection Programme Manager
Terms of reference
Job Title: Protection Programme Manager – GE – South Sudan
Duty station: Yei, with different missions throughout Greater Equatoria and some periods in Juba
Starting date: ASAP
Contract duration: 3 months
Reporting to: Head of Mission
Supervision of 8 staff
General context of the project
Yei is consistently identified as a priority location for interventions due to ongoing conflicts between government and opposition forces, lack of access in surrounding rural areas and challenges facing static partners in responding to the growing number of IDPs. Constant and rapid displacement of populations from surrounding areas, high levels of violence towards civilians in the form of looting, gender-based violence (GBV) and actual conflict surges between factions exacerbate an already critical situation. The city of Yei is located in Yei County, Central Equatoria in southwestern South Sudan, close to the international borders with the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Republic of Uganda.
The security situation in and around Yei Town is fluid, with increased tensions in proximal locations to Yei particularly in counties such as Lainya, Wonduruba, Katigiri, Otogo, Mugwo and Lujulo. The continued clash between government and opposition forces has seen advanced military offensives across the region, while civilians bear the brunt of the conflict. Restrictions issued by the armed elements has affected movement of villagers into town in search of economic opportunities and livelihoods. Between January and February 2019, the conflict between the armed groups escalated and spread along the Yei-Maridi road and towards Morobo counties with reported displacements in Morsak, Ombasi, and Lujulo 
By mid-February, more than 9,500 IDPs had been registered by local authorities and community-based protection networks (CBPNs) in Yei Town with continuous reports of more arrivals. Lack of access to theareas surrounding Yei, due to insecurity, is a consistent barrier in the ability of partners to accurately track the movement of IDPs. Furthermore, increased armed clashes across Yei and surrounding areas have severely hampered the efforts of humanitarian partners. It is likely that the continued abuses by these armed actors will result in dwindled service provision in areas outside Yei, thus creating a pull factor for beneficiaries to move to Yei Town for services. FGD’s and KII’s with IDPs on the ground revealed numerous protection violations:
Therefore, the proposed intervention aims to provide rapid life-saving protection assistance to populations affected by the ongoing crisis in Yei, through:
