make a difference, support refugees

Salary: USD 48,254

Our East African regional office works to ensure respect for human rights, and for equal and just societies throughout a vast and diverse geographical area. You’ll contribute by supporting our work
on refugee rights.

Based in Nairobi, you’ll work with the East, Horn of Africa and Great Lakes teams to ensure that their information on refugees is accurate and their interventions timely. 
That means maintaining a broad overview of relevant political and human rights developments in the region; systematically collating and analysing information on refugees; and keeping up to date on refugee trends by liaising with contacts and monitoring media updates. 

You’ll also take charge of the regional offices’ work with refugees in Kenya and other relevant countries; a task which involves everything from case work to field research missions.

Thanks to similar experience working with refugees, you’ll have no problem systematically documenting and analysing the situation as pertains to refugees. 
A clear, articulate communicator, you’ll have a high standard of English and French, Arabic or Somali. 
And naturally, you’ll have excellent research, writing, administrative and organisational skills, as well as initiative and a proactive approach to problem solving. 
You’ll also show political awareness, backed up by sound knowledge of the East African region. 
With this expertise plus your ability to adapt to change, you could soon prove yourself indispensable to our team.
