ACF recruits 01 Psychologist / Mental Health And Psychosocial Support
Country: JORDAN based in Irbid
Action Against Hunger has been operating in Jordan since 2013. The Jordan mission is dynamic and rapidly growing, with large-scale WASH, Livelihoods and Mental Health and Care Practices (MHCP) programmes being implemented in host communities and the Azraq refugee camp. The Jordan country strategy combines humanitarian and development projects to address the needs of Syrian refugees and vulnerable Jordanians through a holistic approach. With a team of 12 international employees and more than 100 national colleagues, the Action Against Hunger Jordan team manages a portfolio of projects for over 7 million euros, in response to the Syria crisis and its reverberating effects on development conditions in Jordan. Donors supporting these programmes include the EU via MADAD, AFD, GIZ, SDC, UNOCHA, UN Habitat, the Suez Foundation and ACF internal funding. Action Against Hunger also works in close partnership with UNICEF.
Action Against Hunger Jordan’s programming is dynamic, startling the humanitarian-development transition and truly capitalising on the value found in integrated programming. Mental health needs in Jordan exceed the current scope and capacity of service providers, and finding sustainable ways to ensure mental health support is available to both Syrian refugees and host community members is the main driving force behind Action Against Hunger’s one MHPSS project. The success of this project will determine the direction of future MHPSS programming by the mission.
