Job Purpose

  • To accomplish this shift and as part of the strategy, the SO1 team will be engaging with key partners like UNHCR, Department of Refuge Services, Social Protection Secretariat, Kenya National Bureau of Statistics and County Governments to implement this. It is imperative that key processes and activities will need to be organised and documented to ensure effective implementation of the strategy. Besides the transition strategy, the SO1 team shall also be implementing various activities within the Emergency Preparedness and Response (EPR) portfolio.
  • The position required a candidate possessing a robust background in documentation, data analysis, project management knowledge, a strong foundation in writing, research, with a great attention to detail. These skills will be crucial for documenting processes and creating comprehensive reports within these two areas. The ability to efficiently organize and coordinate tasks, meetings and events with WFPs will be a key deliverable of this role, considering the predicted engagements with different partners.
