HI recruits 01 Rehabilitation Technical Advisor
“Outraged by the injustice faced by people with disabilities and vulnerable populations,
HI has been operating in South Sudan since 2006, implementing emergency and development actions aimed at improving protection, quality of life, and the promotion of rights of vulnerable individuals, including people with physical disabilities. HI’s current operations are centred in POCs (protection of civilian sites) and IDP camps outside Juba city and in three greater states: Yei, Torit and Yambio in greater Central Equatoria state, greater Eastern Equatoria and greater Western Equatoria respectively, with the Country Office based in Juba city. During 2019, HI is planning to establish a base in the greater Unity, which remains the most conflict and disability affected region of the whole country. The operational context in South Sudan today is considered largely humanitarian/emergency while phasing in resilience programming. The ongoing peace initiatives if they succeed might result in huge population movements of returnees (both IDPs and refugees) across the country.
Since 2016, HI has been operating an emergency mobile (or flying) unit responding to the needs of beneficiaries with functional limitations and persons with mental health needs affected by the crisis throughout South Sudan. Missions have largely been located in areas of Unity State, Upper Nile and Jonglei due to mass-displacements caused by civil war hostilities. More recently the team have centred its activities in the Greater Equatorias region, in protection of civilian sites and In areas identified as priority by our partners. Given the critical gaps in support to persons with functional limitations and mental health issues, the objective of the Flying Team is to intervene both in areas newly affected by the crisis, and in areas affected by protracted crisis where new needs have been identified or where needs are still unmet.
The Flying Team humanitarian response addresses the specific needs of persons with functional limitations and persons with mental health issues through the provision of a package of services adapted to the situation determined through assessments. The team always implements its activities based on its standard intervention model, but depending on the identified needs and local characteristics, the mission duration (from 2 weeks to 3 months) and type of activities implemented are adapted. This flexibility allows a deeper impact for the beneficiaries. The Flying Team works closely with humanitarian partners on joint assessment and response missions wherever possible and has long established partnerships from which to plan and execute missions.
Advisory and technical supervision of the Flying Team project to ensure provision of quality rehabilitation services to people with injuries and or disabilities in South Sudan. The position will require frequent field visits.

Security context :
Security and road access remains a key factor in geographic targeting of operations in South Sudan. Many locations in the country cannot be reached overland due to ongoing conflict between government and opposition forces, threats from armed gangs, and the huge under development of road and telecommunications infrastructure. Apart from IDP projects in Juba which are managed directly, most of HI’s programs in many parts of South Sudan are currently implemented through remote management, with international staff based mainly at the Country office in Juba, doing regular travel to the field by UNHAS air service . (UNHAS is the choice mode of travel for nearly all humanitarian actors). The country mission has a safety and security protocol which emphasizes individual and team sensitivity and pro-activeness on security matters. The protocol is reviewed periodically to match or anticipate emerging scenarios. The security situation around HI bases and operational areas in Juba and field over the past 3 months has been ranked as 2-3/blue to orange colour bars (2 or blue is normal activities with increased caution and 3 or orange is movement restriction). International staff movements within Juba city is facilitated by HI and has a curfew restriction between 9PM-6.00AM. Office and residential accommodation are currently housed in one compound, and a number of residential facilities including kitchens and lounges are used in common (rooming with sanitary services is individual).
