Senior Humanitarian Gender Capacity Advisers GenCap

Categories: News / Vacancies / No CommentsPosted on: February 14, 2018

Call for Applications
Deadline: 25 February 2015

The Gender Standby Capacity Project (GenCap) – an IASC initiative created in 2007 between UNOCHA and the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) – seeks to facilitate and strengthen capacity and leadership of humanitarians to undertake and promote gender equality programming to ensure the distinct needs of women, girls, boys and men of all ages, are taken into account in humanitarian action at global, regional, and country levels. Gender Advisers are deployed to support the Humanitarian Coordinator, Humanitarian Country Teams, UN agencies, cluster leads, NGOs and governments.

Successful applicants will become members of the GenCap standby roster. You will then be contracted on a deployment specific basis to a country operation, according to need. The length of each deployment is generally six months. Demand for GenCap expertise is high in Latin America, French-speaking Africa and the Middle East, therefore applicants with Spanish, French and Arabic language skills are particularly encouraged to apply.
