Program Brief

Founded in 1933, International Rescue Committee (IRC) is one of the world’s leading agencies working in post-conflict and development contexts, supporting communities in over 40 fragile, failed and developing states. In this capacity, we work to restore safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted, struggling to endure and wishing to advance on a path of development.

 

IRC has been present in Bangladesh since 2017 and obtained registration with the NGOAB in March 2018. Since IRC obtained registration in March 2018, it has moved quickly to expand its integrated emergency health and protection response through both direct and partner-based programming focused on primary healthcare, women’s protection and empowerment, sexual and reproductive health, gender-based violence and child protection. Through 2018, the IRC’s response strategy will primarily target Rohingya refugees in Cox’s Bazar, while meeting the significant needs in both refugee and host populations, as already existing vulnerabilities are compounded with cyclical monsoon and cyclone seasons that impose additional threats to the lives and protection of those refugees as well as vulnerable host populations. IRC is growing its programming to cover education and livelihoods/DRR, as well as its geographic foot print in the host community and to other parts of the country.

 

Purpose of the Role

IRC together with its two international NGO partners is ready to start a three years multi sector consortium project with financial support of Bureau of Population Refugee and Migration (BPRM) to deliver Health, Nutrition and Livelihood, and Protection services for Rohingya Refugees and vulnerable host communities in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. The project aims to directly benefit over 310,000 people while over 271,000 people are expected to be benefitted indirectly over a period of three years.

 

Under the strategic direction and technical support from Deputy Director Finance (DDF) and direct supervision of Consortium Coordinator, the consortium Finance and Grants Manager will be responsible for reviewing financial reports from the various consortium members and compile consortium project’s finance reports.
