Human Resource & Administration Volunteer

Kampala (Uganda)

Requisition ID: req3932

Job Title: Human Resource & Administration Volunteer

Sector: Human Resources

Employment Category: Volunteer

Employment Type: Full-Time

Location: Kampala, Uganda

Job Description

Founded in 1933, the International Rescue Committee (www.rescue.org) is a world leader in relief, rehabilitation and post-conflict development services for those uprooted or affected by violent conflict and oppression. The IRC is currently working in over 40 countries around the world, addressing both the immediate and lifesaving needs of conflict affected people in emergencies and the reconstruction needs of post-conflict societies.

The IRC began programming in northern Uganda in 1998 in response to mass displacement and devastation wrought by rebel group, the Lord’s Resistance Army. In 2002, the IRC expanded to the remote, conflict-affected region of Karamoja and in 2011, began working with refugees in Kampala and Kiryandongo settlement. Monitoring the influx of South Sudanese refugees at the end of 2015, the IRC began scaling up its response to refugees arriving in the West Nile region. By promoting durable solutions that deliver on the interdependent aims of saving lives, strengthening institutions, and supporting social cohesion, the IRC in Uganda is laying the building blocks for long-term stability and development – bringing people from harm to home. The IRC currently works in 7 districts in Uganda, including Kitgum, Lamwo, Moroto, Amudat, Yumbe, Arua and Kampala.

The IRC is currently in the process of expanding its programming to South Western Uganda – Nakivale, Oruchinga and Kyaka refugee settlements, to continue to provide life-saving services to conflict-affected and displaced refugee and host community.
