**Job Description**
• *Background:**

The International Rescue Committee (IRC), one of the world’s largest humanitarian agencies, provides relief, rehabilitation, and post-conflict reconstruction support to people affected by natural disaster, oppression, and violent conflict in more than 40 countries. The IRC is committed to bold leadership, innovation, and creative partnerships. Active in public health, education, livelihoods, women's empowerment, youth development, and protection and promotion of rights, the IRC assists people from harm to home. The IRC launched an emergency health response in Libya in September 2016 as the humanitarian situation in the country was deteriorating following the 2014 civil war. Since then, the IRC has broadened its portfolio with health, protection, and governance programs aiming to employ a holistic approach to meeting the needs of crisis affected and vulnerable communities to survive, recover, and gain control of their futures. The IRC has been... working to expand its multi-sectoral reach in areas of critical need in Libya and in these efforts houses a Grants & Partnerships Unit (GPU) to support the design of, fundraising for, and management of quality, responsive programming with ambitious goals for work in partnership with local actors.
The scope of IRC Libya’s protection and empowerment programming includes Women’s Protection and Empowerment (WPE, which includes gender-based violence (GBV) prevention and response), child protection (CP), and Protection Rule of Law (PRoL, or broader humanitarian protection) for conflict-affected and other vulnerable women, girls, men, and boys. In the design and development of responsive, client-centered protection programming, the IRC works both directly and in partnership with local actors promoting women’s social and, increasingly, economic empowerment and an improved protection environment for conflict-affected and vulnerable women, girls, men, and boys. Through this work, the IRC has raised awareness among communities, provided training for service providers, and established spaces for a range of psychosocial support activities and access to case management for women, adolescent girls, and children in and around Tripoli and Misrata. The IRC aims to build on that foundation with additional, targeted support to local capacities and community-based mechanisms.
