As the Food Crisis in Africa becomes more complex, there are increasing challenges to ensure integration and coherence in operations management, humanitarian diplomacy and communication approaches so that the IFRC can continue to enhance its support to the National Societies of the region and the wider Federation around this crisis.
In line with the Federation Strategy 2020 of “doing more, doing better and reaching further”, the Operations Coordinator for the Food Crisis is expected to contribute effectively by working with the Federation Secretariat team members, National Societies as well as the ICRC.
Reporting to the Head of DCPRR in the Africa Region, the Operations Coordinator, in close coordination with other management team including CO and CCST operations managers in the Region is responsible to ensure adherence to the set strategic direction and ensure financial and human resources management are consistent with IFRC rules and regulations.
The Operations Coordinator will be responsible for the expanded response activities in the affected countries providing leadership and guidance for overall operation delegates/staff and programs directly supporting the response to the crisis.
This role carries both high-level coordination support and management responsibilities. Management responsibilities will include the direct and indirect management of the Africa Food Crisis team focal points, as well as management and technical support within the Region. Responding to strategic directions and emerging priorities from management with promptness, process and results-based responsiveness, accountability and transparency are key requirements.
