About Norwegian Refugee Council:

The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) is an independent humanitarian organization helping people forced to flee. We work in crises across 31 countries, providing emergencies and long-term assistance to millions of people every year. We stand up for people forced to flee, advocating their rights. NORCAP, our global provider of expertise, helps improve international and local ability to prevent, prepare for, respond to and recover from crises. NRC also runs the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre in Geneva, a global leader in reporting on and advocating for people displaced within their own country.

Employment with NRC may lead to employment in or deployment to Regions, Countries, Areas or Offices that may be host to considerable health, safety and security risks. NRC takes this very seriously and we have procedures in place to reduce known risks, but will never be able to take away all risks. NRC requires staff members who travel on an international contract to the field to undergo an medical examination with our medical provider. Employees must produce a Health Clearance Certificate before departure stating that there are no relevant health concerns. If staff are unable to provide this, NRC reserves the right to terminate the Contract of Employment. 

Job Description:

The aim of this position is to improve NRC Afghanistan’s ability to promote principled and meaningful access for sustainable programming across the country. Ensuring humanitarian actors can reach people in need in a principled manner and that people can access the assistance and protection they need remain one of the greatest challenges facing the humanitarian community globally. In Afghanistan, despite the end of the active conflict humanitarian access remains a challenge, with humanitarian actors attempting to address widespread needs in a context where humanitarian funding reaching the country is dwindling.
