HR manager Gaziantep - TURKEY

Gaziantep | Ankara (Turkey)


Outraged by the injustice faced by people with disabilities and vulnerable populations, we aspire to a world of solidarity and inclusion, enriched by our differences, where everyone can live in dignity.
Handicap International is an independent and impartial aid and development organisation working in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. We work alongside disabled and vulnerable people to help meet their essential needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.
For further information about the association:
Present in more than 55 countries, Handicap International is composed of 2 operational directions:

  • The Direction of Humanitarian Action
  • The Direction of Development Action


The continuing unrest and instability in Syria is increasingly impacting the internal situation of Turkey, host of the largest Syrian refugee population with over 2.5 million registered as of 31/12/2015 (UNHCR), of which 62% reside in the South-East bordering provinces (Hatay, Kilis, Gaziantep, Sanliurfa). While registration under the government protection system is a pre-requisite for refugees to access free-of-charge essential services, it is estimated that unregistered Syrians could increase the refugee population by up to 20%. 90% of refugees live outside of government-run camps, complicating their identification and consequently their access to humanitarian aid. Indeed access barriers persist for refugees, mainly related to language, availability of information and trust in overloaded public services (health and education mainly). Another impediment is that, notwithstanding the considerable involvement from the Government of Turkey, services are not always provided for free, while income generation opportunities for refugees are limited thus jeopardizing their financial capacity to access markets of essential goods and services.
While considerable relief efforts are deployed by Government of Turkey and its humanitarian partners (UN and NGOs) to support refugees with a wide range of services, HI needs assessments conducted from October 2015 to January 2016 identified critical gaps to be addressed in terms of access to livelihoods opportunities and services, notably as far as rehabilitation services and psychosocial support are concerned, for people affected psychologically and/or physically by the crisis and their household.
