Desired Candidate Profile
Operational Context for Programme Monitoring Associate â G6
The UNHCR Representation in Uganda has oversight over three UNHCR sub-offices in the field, Adjumani, Arua and Mbarara and refugees are scattered across 13 settlements in â¦ locations as well as urban locations in the country. The incumbent is expected to regularly travel to the field, visit refugee sites, and meet with staff and partners in these locations. Given the different cultural dynamics and political sensitivities in the operation, the person must be a proven team-player, have excellent inter-personal, communication and negotiation skills. The ability to design and support Programmes for rural and urban refugee populations is highly desirable.
