Текст вакансии:

he Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) is a non-governmental, humanitarian organization with 60 years of experience in helping to create a safer and more dignified life for refugees and internally displaced people.
NRC advocates for the rights of displaced populations and offers assistance within the shelter, education, emergency food security, legal assistance, and water,sanitation and hygiene sectors. The Norwegian Refugee Council has approximately 5000 committed and competent employees involved in projects across four continents. In addition, NRC runs one of the world's largest standby rosters -NORCAP, with 650 professionals, ready to be deployed on 72 hours notice when a crisis occurs
This position will play an important role in supporting NRC to address the needs of conflict-affected persons, including IDPs (1.6 million registered), impacted by the continuing armed conflict in eastern Ukraine. In 2015, Ukraine became one of NRC's newest Country Programmes, focusing its efforts on providing basic support to improve the living conditions of the most vulnerable conflict-affected population in Government Controlled Areas (GCA) and Non-Government Controlled Areas (NGCA) through cross-sectoral assistance and protection (ICLA, Shelter/NFI, WASH, Food Security and Livelihoods).
Humanitarian access is a key challenge in eastern Ukraine for the entire humanitarian community; presently, NRC is not able to implement any activities in NGCA until access can be negotiated with the de facto authorities. With the evolving situation towards protracted displacement in eastern Ukraine, NRC will play a growing role in addressing durable solution challenges. The Protection and Advocacy Coordinator (PAC) will contribute to NRC efforts vis-a-vis durable solutions, as well as play a key role in identifying priority protection concerns (together with the Programmes), strengthening incorporation of protection and advocacy into all aspects of NRC's activities, and implementing an advocacy strategy to direct this work. The PAC will be responsible for developing NRC's advocacy messaging to help promote an improved protection and humanitarian response environment for conflict-affected persons/IDPs in Ukraine. This post is for 12 months, with a possibility of extension, and reports to the NRC Country Director in Ukraine. 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.
