General objectives of the study

In the frame of the structure of support to staff by Triangle Génération Humanitaire (TGH) in Sudan, under the supervision of the Country Director, and in coordination with the HR coordinator, the national staff HR Expert will propose a study of HR Policy and Procedure, along with review of Remuneration package for national staff in Sudan.

To ensure TGH policies remain in line with Sudan Labour Laws, and in light of the significant changes to Sudan’s economic situation TGH intends to implement a full study and review of all HR Policies and procedures, along with a review of salary scale (in line with a market review based on significantly increased cost of living), remuneration packages and payment methodologies (currencies, and subsequent tax implications).
