Women's Economic Empowerment Advisor (Short Term)

Deadline: Until filled

Location: Amman, Jordan

Organization: CARE USA

CARE is working in Syria to support vulnerable women, men, girls and boys affected by the ongoing civil war. We work both through partners and through direct delivery of humanitarian assistance across different parts of Syria. In addition, CARE supports livelihoods recovery and resilience programming across Syria.

Most of the work is through cross border, remote-managed assistance modalities from neighboring countries, working closely with Syrian civil society organizations. Currently CARE’s core sectors in Syria are Food Security & Livelihoods (FSL), WASH and Protection, working with over 120 staff in hubs across the region. In addition, CARE maintains a standing emergency response capacity with a particular focus on Shelter/NFI programming.

In 2018 CARE launched a strategy review of its work in Syria, and has prioritized building the resilience of affected people in Syria to recover from shocks and stresses, with a particular emphasis on supporting women to engage in sustainable livelihoods.

This position will be responsible for delivering on that objective, by ensuring that CARE’s programming in Syria contributes to positive changes in women’s agency, and their position within their households and communities.
