Job Description


Organizational Context

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) is the world’s largest humanitarian organization, with 191-member National Societies. As part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, our work is guided by seven fundamental principles; humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality.
The Afghanistan country office supports Afghan Red Crescent Society (ARCS) capacity building and programme implementation guided by the ARCS established strategic plan in the areas of health, disaster management, disaster risk reduction, social outreach, capacity building and organizational development activities. ARCS is undergoing an important transition linked to the adoption of an updated and modernized Red Crescent Law which will formally and completely separates the NS from the Government. With this independence and the increased humanitarian needs in the country, expectations on the NS are high. The ARCS Leadership looks to its IFRC, ICRC and PNS partners to help optimize and raise the efficiency of the NS management in accordance with the findings of the Federation-led OCAC. In 2016, the ARCS will launch its 2016-2020 Strategic Plan developed through fully participatory processes.
In keeping with the 2016-2020 IFRC Plan “Partnering for Resilience”, the Field Office Manager works through four strategies for implementation that are critical IFRC functions designed to support the ARCS to implement programmes in thematic areas of focus where the ARCS and IFRC have agreed to partner for the needs of the
vulnerable communities in Afghanistan.
