Outraged by the injustice faced by people with disabilities and vulnerable populations, we aspire to a world of solidarity and inclusion, enriched by our differences, where everyone can live in dignity.
Handicap International is changing his name and becomes « Humanity & Inclusion ».
Since the organisation was first founded in 1982, we have set up development programmes in more than 55 countries and responded to many emergencies. Today we have a budget of around 150 million euros, with 3500 employees worldwide.

The Syrian crisis is the greatest humanitarian crisis of the last 20 years. According to the latest UN figures, about 11.7 million people are currently affected by the crisis in Syria, including about 6 million IDPs, while over 5 million Syrians have sought refuge in neighbouring countries or in Europe. The current humanitarian response only provides a patchy and partial coverage of the growing humanitarian needs. Eight years after the beginning of the crisis, the number of injured persons in Syria keeps rising, with a severe lack of healthcare in many areas. In large areas of the country, the local economy is in bad shape local populations and IDPs are in need of livelihoods assistance. The inclusion of the most vulnerable, including persons with disabilities, in the humanitarian response remains a major concern.
From its main coordination office in Amman, HI is managing a large humanitarian program from three different hubs, along three main pillars:
1. Support to health partners (hospitals, psychosocial support centers, local NGOs) for the provision of multidisciplinary rehabilitation services (physical rehabilitation, psychosocial support and/or prosthetics and orthotics) and standalone psychosocial support services, through training, technical supervisions and donations of assistive devices and/or equipment;
2. Education to the risks and effects caused by conventional weapons (including mines, explosive remnants of war and small arms light weapons) and non-technical survey of hazardous areas;
3. Livelihoods assistance, with a combination of cash for work, vocational training, small grants for businesses and apprenticeships;
3. Training and technical support to other humanitarian actors on the inclusion of persons with disabilities and other vulnerable persons in the humanitarian response (with a special focus on inclusive health and inclusive livelihoods).
The actual intervention is based on a mix of remote management of national teams, remote partnerships with local structures and organizations, and direct implementation programs.
The role of the Security, Context and Access Advisor is aimed at helping to ensure the safety and security of HI’s mission staff at all times through ensuring proper risk analysis, security frameworks and tools and protocols are in place and at the same time supervising their correct and effective implementation.
The secondary objective is to develop HI’s capacity to analyze, dialogue, and negotiate in order for populations to fully access humanitarian aid. The position is directly under Country Director line management.
Main responsibilities include:
2. Standards and Accountability :
3. Operational security management:
5. Assumes the role and stance of manager with regard to his/her staff and provides extensive training on any security related issues to all HI staff.
6. Analyzing the humanitarian context, identifying challenges to access and supporting Country Director and Area Manager in creating a program specific strategy for improving humanitarian access.
