What kind of talent is CARE Jordan seeking?

CARE Jordan’s country director explains current hiring needs.

Economic participation of women remains lower in Jordan than in other countries in the region despite comparatively higher educational attainment — something that CARE Jordan is working to improve.

CARE’s work with women and girls — addressing gender-based violence and enabling economic empowerment — is closely tied to its emergency humanitarian work in a country that has been host to an estimated 450,000 refugees fleeing violence and insecurity in Iraq and 580,000 refugees to date from the Syria conflict.

CARE is currently looking for talent with a focus on urban areas, technical capacity in GBV and enhancing women’s economic empowerment as well as youth empowerment and engagement, according to country director Salam Kanaan.  

Project monitoring and evaluation is also increasingly important, so those with documentation skills who can present lessons learned and disseminate that information are equally valuable.
