DRC is an international non-governmental organization that promotes and supports durable solutions to the problems faced by refugees and internally displaced people all over the world.
DRC has been operating in the Horn of Africa and Yemen for over a decade, running a combination of livelihood, protection, advocacy and relief programmes. In Ethiopia, DRC has programme offices in Djibouti, Addis Ababa, Gambella, Dollo Ado, Jijiga, and Shire. While much of the work done by the organization focuses on displaced populations and asylum seekers, DRC also implements programmes in support of the refugee hosting populations.
DRC’s Safety Risk Management System in the HoA&Y area has been developed to a robust level over the past five years. Procedures, protocols and policies are in place and largely implemented throughout the region. Training modules have been standardized and delivered on a regular basis, and safety management receives strong support and attention from managers at all levels.
The Safety Coordinator will be responsible for supporting the development and implementation of the DRC Safety Risk Management (SRM) system throughout the DRC areas of operation in Ethiopia and Djibouti. This will be done in close cooperation with the Regional Safety Advisor, Country Director, Area Managers, and Safety Focal Points in the DRC field offices in Ethiopia and Djibouti.
