The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover, and gain control of their lives. Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the IRC works with people forced to flee from war, conflict and disaster and the host communities which support them, as well as those who remain within their homes and communities. At work today in over 40 countries and 22 U.S. cities, we improve outcomes in the areas of health, safety, economic wellbeing, education, and power. Given the disparity faced by women and girls, IRC seeks to narrow gender inequalities and ensure social inclusion of all vulnerable groups in broader policies, processes and actions affecting their lives.
Currently, the IRC in Uganda has presence across five sub-regions and six refugee settlements, implementing programming in the sectors of health, protection and rule of law (PRoL), women’s protection and empowerment (WPE), economic recovery and development (ERD), and education. IRC Uganda also implements cross-cutting programming focused on systems strengthening and accountability to affected persons.
The IRC is leading a multi-sector / multi-location consortium with three other partners (including international and national partners) to support refugees and vulnerable host communities in West Nile and Acholi sub-regions. The project is funded by BPRM and aims to empower refugees and surrounding host community members to contribute to their own recovery and resilience through improved access to protection, GBV, child protection and livelihoods.
The Consortium Manager will be responsible for the overall coordination and management of the BPRM project and serve as the consortium focal point. The consortium manager will lead a steering committee that will meet regularly to ensure proper coordination and synergy with non-consortium members in each location to avoid duplication. S/he will play the partnership oversight and management role in coordination with the Partnership Coordinator.
The Consortium Manager will ensure quality program implementation, including providing strategic guidance to consortium staff and overseeing budget management, performance management, M&E, partnership management, and relationships with stakeholders including government authorities, humanitarian working groups, and project partners, (TPO, Uganda Law Society, & World Vision). S/he will be responsible for maintaining regular contact with all consortium partners and the donor.
S/he will report to the Senior Field Coordinator based in Yumbe and will receive technical guidance from in-country Coordinators of; Protection and Rule of Law, Women’s Protection and Empowerment (WPE), Economic Recovery and Development, and Partnership, and Grants Unit.
