PUI recruits 01 Field Coordinator in Cox’s Bazar
Première Urgence Internationale (PUI) is a non-governmental, non-profit, non-political and non-religious international aid organization. Our teams are committed to supporting civilian victims of marginalization and exclusion, or those hit by natural disasters, wars and economic collapses by answering their fundamental needs. Our aim is to provide emergency relief to uprooted people in order to help them recover their dignity and regain self-sufficiency. The association leads in average 200 projects a year in the following sectors of intervention: Food Security, Health, Nutrition, Construction and Rehabilitation of infrastructures, Water, Sanitation, Hygiene and Economic Recovery. PUI is providing assistance to around 5 million people in 22 countries across Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Eastern Europe and France.
Humanitarian situation and needs:
Bangladesh has been the second theatre of the Rohingya crisis for more than 30 years. The Muslim minority has faced decades of repression and discrimination in its home country Myanmar/Burma, precisely in the north of Rakhine State, resulting in many of its members seeking refuge in neighbouring Bangladesh, in the southern region of Cox’s Bazar. Since the events of the 25th of August 2017, over 700,000 Rohingya crossed the border from Myanmar to Bangladesh, making it the world’s fastest developing refugee emergency. As of mid-October, there were more than one million cumulative refugees in the country, as 300,000 Rohingya were already in Bangladesh following previous waves of displacement. The sudden surge in the number of Rohingya arrivals has stretched the capacities of humanitarian organizations/agencies operating in Bangladesh. These new arrivals are being hosted in camps for registered refugees, but also overcrowded makeshift settlements, including schools, community centres, religious buildings, and with local families. New clusters of settlements have also been set up and continue to expand.
The Rohingya crisis has created immediate needs for cross-sectorial assistance. Concerns for the newly displaced persons include lack of access to food security and nutrition, widespread need for adequate WASH facilities, shelter, health, psychosocial support, gender and protection and restoration of family links.
Our actions in the Field:
Based on the strategy established during the exploratory mission in October, PUI has been implementing Site Management activities in the main refugee site since the end of 2017. PUI has also started to implement WASH activities in Teknaf area since October 2018. The Site Management operations have been developed in Camp 19 (under IOM funding) and the WASH activities are being developed in Camp 24, 25 and 27 (under CDCS – French MoFA funding).
While PUI first intervened in Bangladesh through a portage system organized with HI, since PUI obtained its registration in May 2018, a new strategy has been developed and PUI is now operating independently with a primary focus on Site Management, WASH and Protection mainstreamed and PUI is now willing to deepen the current intervention sectors. A Health proposal has also been submitted to ECHO and is still under examination.
As part of our actions in Bangladesh, we are looking for a Field Coordinator.
Under the direct supervision of the Head of Mission, the Grants and Reporting Officer is in charge of drafting proposals, reports, M&E result presentations, as well as programmatic documents for local authorities. He/she gathers all necessary information on the ongoing projects in order to adequately communicate on PUI’s activities. He/She strongly contributes to PUI’s internal and external coordination participation.
Main tasks and activities:
