About us
More than half the world lives in poverty.  Poverty is an outrage against humanity.  It robs people of dignity, freedom and hope, of power over their own lives.  Christian Aid has a vision – an end to poverty and we believe that vision can become a reality.  We are striving to bring lasting change to the lives of the poorest communities.  We work wherever there is great need, helping people to find their own solutions to the problems they face, irrespective of their religion, caste or creed.  If you’re passionate about positive change across the world, then this job might be for you. 

Christian Aid is working with its partners in Bangladesh to achieve its goal of ending poverty.  We are committed to expose the scandal of poverty and to help in practical ways through our programme, partnerships, campaign and advocacy to root it out from the world.  We work with our partners to challenge and change the system that favours the rich and powerful over the poor and marginalized. Christian Aid (CA) has been working in Bangladesh since 1972. We are recognized for our work on emergency response programme, climate change, disaster risk management, gender equality and human rights issues. Our emergency programmes promote access to just and equitable resources and support the creation of resilient and thriving livelihoods for disaster and crisis affected communities. This role is for ensuring emergency support to the Rohingya as part of Christian Aid’s emergency programme.

We are looking for a person who is already working in international organisation as a manager/officer or within a team having experience in similar area in Bangladesh or any other country.  You’ll see this as an excellent opportunity to lead the food security, market, cash and livelihood programming component and to engage with multi-stakeholder partnership on emergency response for the on-going Rohingya crisis.  The Programme Officer – Food Security, Cash, Markets for Christian Aid’s Bangladesh country office will be responsible for coordinating with local government, I/NGOs, food clusters, food sectors and all relevant project stakeholders. The role holder will support Christian Aid’s response to the on-going Rohingya crisis in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh with special focuses on the food security, cash, market and livelihood sector interventions. The role holder will assist in the development, implementation and monitoring of Christian Aid’s food security, cash, markets and livelihood humanitarian response, providing effective and timely support (including capacity building) to Rohingya & host community and partner organizations, enabling them to implement the rapid, effective and principled cash/FSL response to emergencies, and ensuring that this is in line with Christian Aid’s country strategy and Humanitarian Standards. The role holder will be representing Christian Aid in food sector, cash working groups (CWG) meetings/activities and engage in the right networks, while increasing the profile and visibility of Christian Aid’s humanitarian work in the region. The role holder will closely work with the Rohingya response team in Cox’s Bazar to achieve the targets and objectives of the response program.

S/he will need to take on challenges to ensure a rapid, effective and timely response, holding overall responsibility for project achievements and results. The person should have clear understanding on humanitarian architecture of Bangladesh, overall coordination mechanisms and experience working in adverse situation to manage crisis.

About The role
We are looking for a candidate with a high level of commitment to bring trans formational changes to the lives of poor and disaster-affected communities.  The incumbent is expected to possess a post graduate degree in social science from any reputed university or BSC in agriculture, agricultural economics, environmental science, rural development, nutrition, public health, disaster management and/or any other related fields with at least 4-5 years’ experience of working in humanitarian response with local and/international partner organizations. S/he should have substantial and relevant programme management experience in the field of humanitarian response, disaster risk reduction or disaster preparedness.  Other essentials are experience of implementing programmes through a partnership approach; good knowledge of managing program interventions independently, experience in programme appraisal, monitoring and evaluation; training and capacity building, excellent IT skills and language skills in English.
