Job Vacancies International Rescue Committee
Position: Emergency Roster Project Leader
Location: United States of America
Closing Date: Wednesday, 07 December 2011
The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the IRC offers lifesaving care and life-changing assistance to people affected by war or disaster. At work today in over 40 countries and 22 U.S. cities, we restore safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted and struggling to endure. The IRC leads the way from harm to home.
IRC has a robust and growing emergency response unit and programs which rely on sourcing and deploying skilled personnel rapidly, normally within 72 hours. To support deployments the IRC Emergency Preparedness & Response Unit (EPRU) maintains rosters for internal and external candidates who can be drawn on when an emergency arises. As part of an ongoing initiative to enhance IRC’s emergency capacity, it has been determined that a more efficient and effective roster system is required.
