Job Description

Job Title: Emergency Response Program Manager II - Shelter and WASH

Reports To: Emergency Coordinator

Country/Location: Maiduguri, Borno State, Nigeria

Project Background:
Since the crisis in Northeast Nigeria escalated in 2013, the situation for IDPs and returnees has continued to worsen. A growing number of people are in urgent need of assistance, and alarming rates of acute malnutrition have been reported. The re-opening of Local Government Areas (LGAs), many which have been inaccessible for an extended period of time, has led to the identification of new IDP locations in Borno State, while ongoing conflict between the military and insurgent groups has resulted in the influx of more IDPs into Maiduguri metropolis and the establishment of several spontaneous camps. The number of IDPs in both Maiduguri, Jere and other LGAs continue to increase – with the current reports indicating a total of 1.6 million IDPs in Borno State alone.

Through funding from multiple donors, including the US Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) and the Latter Day Saints Charities (LDSC), CRS implements WASH, Shelter and Non-food items (NFI) programming in Borno state. The programs support IDP and local communities through the rehabilitation of water points, installation of sanitation infrastructure, construction of shelter, capacity building in Housing, Land, and Property (HLP) and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR), distribution of NFI and hygiene promotion. In addition, following a successful pilot project, CRS Nigeria has received donor funds to expand a rapid response mechanism in the NE. CRS primarily uses direct implementation approaches and remote management to implement its programming in the Northeast.

Job Summary:
You will manage and provide technical oversight of the development and implementation of the Country Program (CP) Emergency Shelter and WASH programming ensuring effective systems and processes are in place that support high-quality programming advancing Catholic Relief Services’ (CRS) work in serving the poor and vulnerable. Your management skills and knowledge will ensure that the CP delivers high-quality programming and continuously works towards improving the impact of its Emergency Response.
