UN Jobs: Regional Roving Health, Safety and Security Manager Central& West Africa

Must read

Regional Roving Health, Safety and Security Manager Central& West Africa


The NRC Central and West Africa region includes operations in Burkina Faso, Cameroon, the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mali, Niger, Chad and Nigeria. Most countries are experiencing a deterioration of the security situation, increasing humanitarian needs and displacements due to conflict. Aid workers continue to be affected by security incidents across the region. Shrinking humanitarian space also places aid workers at a greater risk. The expansion of areas controlled by NSAG and challenged application of International Humanitarian Law by state security forces contributes to risks faced by communities as well as NRC’s staff. At the same time, there are areas where local integration and return are possible, and NRC is engaged in programs to support self-reliance and displacement solutions.

Located in Dakar, Senegal, the Central and West Africa Regional Office (CWARO) oversees the country programs in the region and provides strategic guidance and oversight across the core program, advocacy and support functions.

Roving staff hold positions that require a high degree of mobility and undertake several short-term deployments to different NRC country/regional offices, between 70-75% of their contractual period. Roving staff are full-time employees but because of the high degree of mobility and frequency of relocations, 25% of the Roving staff employment is allocated as non-deployed time. This means 25% is made up of Annual Leave, R&R days, and breaks between deployments. Home-based refers to the breaks between deployments where the staff should not be working but will need to attend to administrative tasks like applying for visa, undergoing medical checks, read preparation documents for the next deployment.
