At CARE, we seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live with dignity and security.
This has been our vision since 1945, when we were founded to send lifesaving CARE Packages® to survivors of World War II. Today, CARE is a global leader in the movement to eradicate poverty. In 2016, CARE worked in 94 countries and reached 80 million people with an incredible range of life-saving programs. We also put women and girls at the center of our work because we know that we cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities. We seek dynamic, innovative thinkers to further our mission. If you share our core beliefs: poverty is an injustice; poverty is solvable; and together, we have the power to end it, join us.
The Syria Resilience Consortium (SRC) was established in 2016 by six agencies - CARE, DRC, Handicap International, IRC, NRC, and Mercy Corps. The consortium’s vision is a Syria in which all individuals, families and communities are resilient and characterized by social and economic well-being. In order to achieve this, the SRC collaborates with partners and donors to support individuals, families, and communities in Syria with tools and skills to rebuild their lives.
The SRC utilizes an area-based model, where analysis, response planning, and implementation is coordinated across three response areas: North Syria, North-East Syria, Southern-Central Syria (including Damascus). The SRC recognizes that access to north-eastern and north-western Syria will remain fluid in 2019 and that consortium members working in these locations will likely need to modify their modalities of implementation. In 2019 the SRC will also seek to increase its capacity to implement resilience programming in all areas in Syria. A transition strategy will help guide the SRC as it designs and implements integrated resilience programs for the longer term 2020-2022.
The Consortium Members recognize that a Programme Coordination Unit (PCU) has been and will continue to be key to enabling the Consortium to achieve its objectives. With the recent departure of the current Deputy Chief of Party (CoP), the SRC is seeking an experienced and highly motivated candidate to fill this position.
The Deputy CoP supports the Chief of Party (CoP) in leading the PCU. This Unit is mandated to coordinate the SRC members at Whole of Syria Level and liaise with the various Grant Holders of the Consortium on behalf of the Steering Committee, in order to facilitate: a) Impactful, coherent and efficient programming; b) Enhanced Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability & Learning (MEAL) and Knowledge Management; c) Impactful Communication, Representation and Advocacy; d) Provide Leadership in Donor Engagement, Networking and Resource Mobilisation.
The Deputy CoP reports to the CoP and supports the work of the SRC Steering Committee, Member Representatives, Area Coordinators, and MEAL Task Force. As the lead agency for the SRC, CARE serves as the host of the PCU, including the Deputy CoP position.

About the Organization
CARE is a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty. We place special focus on working alongside poor women because, equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help whole families and entire communities escape poverty. Women are at the heart of CARE's community-based efforts to improve basic education, prevent the spread of disease, increase access to clean water and sanitation, expand economic opportunity and protect natural resources. CARE also delivers emergency aid to survivors of war and natural disasters, and helps people rebuild their lives.
