NRC has been operating in Colombia for 17 years directly and for 30 years through partners in response to the on-going conflict in-country. In the last years we also scaled up our humanitarian assistance to other countries in Latin America, currently covering also Ecuador, Panama as well as Peru (the latter through an implementing partner). Since 2018 the regional impact of the Venezuela situation has grown in scale and scope; impacting heavily on Colombia, but also in other countries like Ecuador and Peru. NRC’s regional response to the Venezuela crisis increased substantially and will continue to be scaled up. In addition to this, the Colombia situation has been showing clear signs of reactivation of the armed conflict, with an increase of internal displacement.
The NRC are searching for an experienced, dynamic and operational individual to take up the role of leading NRC’s health, safety and security system in Colombia, Ecuador and Panama. The operation consists of over 500 staff; they deliver assistance in the following core competencies: Education, Information, Counselling and Legal Assistance (ICLA), Livelihoods and Food Security, Protection, Shelter, Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH). They also manage a large component of cash assistance, inside core competencies and as a stand-alone modality. In Colombia, they deliver assistance in hard-to-reach areas and some of the most complex zones in country affected by armed conflict, while in all three countries – Colombia, Ecuador and Panama – they assist Venezuelan refugees and migrants who are on the move, at borders and in urban centres.
