Employment Officer (ERD)
BACKGROUND TO IRC
Founded in 1933, the International Rescue Committee responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. Working in coordination with the humanitarian community and the Government of Jordan, the IRC’s assistance program for Syrian refugees and vulnerable Jordanians includes both camp-based programs (Zaatari, Azraq) and urban-based refugee assistance (Mafraq, Ramtha, Irbid, Amman). The IRC’s programs focus on health, ensuring child protection, addressing gender-based violence (GBV) and fostering economic recovery and development (ERD).
The ERD program works to stabilize household economies through basic needs and emergency cash, financial management trainings, and capacity building for income generation for women and youth. Activities target vulnerable populations, particularly women who are at risk of gender-based violence (GBV). Through intensive training, targeted financial support, and direct job referrals, the ERD program builds the employability and business knowledge of these groups to support their self-sufficiency.
SCOPE OF WORK The ERD program implements activities that build the work readiness and income generating potential of job-seeking youth. To achieve this, the program conducts regular employability trainings on hard and soft skills relevant to improved employability and success in the workplace, matches youth with employers for on-the-job trainings through apprenticeships, and makes direct referrals of job seekers to vacancies. The employment officer is the key role in implementing these activities, and reports to the Senior Employment Officer.
