Current vacancies at IRC-UK
Economic Recovery and Development Consultants
The IRC’s Economic Recovery and Development Technical Unit (ERD) is currently accepting CVs from economic recovery and agriculture experts who may be interested in short-term positions with the IRC in the future.
Urban Refugees Advocate
International Rescue Committee UK is looking for a talented individual to transform the humanitarian community’s response to refugees in urban areas. More than 50% of the world’s refugees are now in urban areas, yet much of the humanitarian response architecture and standard tools are geared towards responding in a camp setting, and too often those refugees who are not in camps are left without assistance or protection. The IRC-UK is creating a new role specifically to change the nature of policymaker and practitioner response to urban refugees and displaced people, as well as working with host communities, both through internal and external advocacy and by developing new tools to facilitate more effective programming by both the IRC and other key actors. The advocate will also be responsible for IRC-UK’s high profile policy conference on this issue in October 2013.

Reporting to Head of Finance and IT, and working within a small, dynamic team, the post-holder will provide high quality finance and HR support to the UK office. The role will require good organisation and administration skills, with the ability to plan and prioritise a varied workload.

The post holder will provide a high standard of executive and personal assistance to the Executive Director, Board of Trustees and Senior Management Team.
The role will be varied and will suit somebody good at multi-tasking and combining an eye for detail with interest in supporting the Executive Director in developing the ‘bigger picture’. The right candidate will be efficient and diplomatic, and have the inter-personal skills to deal with senior staff and trustees.
