Danish Refugee Council recruits 01 Regional Head of Programme
The Danish Refugee Council (DRC) is seeking an experienced and dedicated Head of Programme to help develop and strengthen DRC programming and operations within the North Africa region.
DRC applies a regional approach in promoting our mandate to protect and promote durable solutions to displacement affected populations on the basis of humanitarian principles and human rights. In 2018, DRC formally established a regional operation for the North Africa region, comprising Algeria, Tunisia, Libya and Sudan – and with potential further expansion. DRC has been present in Sudan since 2004, in Libya and Tunisia since 2011, and in Algeria since 2016, addressing humanitarian needs related to armed conflict, persistent insecurity and significant internal and cross-border displacement, including protracted displacement and returns processes. With protection as the foundation, DRC applies an integrated multi-sector approach to address emergency needs, root causes and solutions to displacement. Increasingly, countries in North Africa have also become areas of departure, transit and destination for mixed migration flows, with those on the move facing significant protection concerns.
The North Africa Regional Office (NARO) is based in Tunis, Tunisia. Led by a Regional Director, it provides support, management and strategic leadership to the Country Operations and also hosts the North Africa Mixed Migration Center and a Consortium Coordination Unit.
The Regional Head of Programme (RHOP) reports to and works closely with the Regional Director (RD) in providing and mobilising regional support for the country operations and programme teams hosted within the region. The RHOP supports the RD in ensuring management, leadership and strategic direction for the DRC operations and in promoting and ensuring programme and operational compliance and development.
The RHOP supports the development and implementation of the regional strategy and ensures that relevant advocacy, donor and fundraising strategies are pursued. The role promotes a regional execution of global policies, standards and organisational priorities and ensures that ‘DRC annual cycle’ processes are applied and implemented in the local contexts.
This role has a regional focus on ensuring programmatic development and strategic focus as well as alignment and compliance with DRC’s global processes and procedures within the whole North Africa regional area. The RHOP provides support and technical guidance to country operations while leading key initiatives with regional scope.
