Sector: Program Administration Employment Category: Fixed Term Employment Type: Full-Time Open to Expatriates: Yes Work Arrangement: In-person Job Description The humanitarian crisis in Venezuela continues to escalate. Venezuelans face hyperinflation, making basic goods and services, including healthcare and food, unaffordable. Medical supply shortages make it challenging to diagnose and treat communicable diseases, sexual and reproductive health needs, and other services. Food scarcity has led to hunger and malnutrition. Between 2015 and 2018, over three million Venezuelans sought goods and services primarily in neighboring countries. The IRC has responded to the crisis by supporting Venezuelans across the migration route, including Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru. In Colombia, the IRC works in health, protection, education, and multipurpose cash assistance. In Venezuela, the IRC has been implementing programs through local organizations, working to strengthen their capacity to provide access to services and consolidate financial, procurement, monitoring, and evaluation capabilities. Program overview Since 2019, IRC Venezuela has implemented an intervention modality with partners, providing health care, child protection, women's empowerment and protection, education, food security, and livelihood services in collaboration with local actors. The IRC recognizes local organizations not only as allies but also as catalysts and drivers of change. Effective collaborative partnerships are central to IRC's ambitions and strategic plans. We prioritize investing in local systems, resulting in more effective, responsive, and sustainable assistance reaching more people with better outcomes.
