Human Resources Manager-DRC

Closing date:


DR Congo is among the world’s most complex and protracted humanitarian crisis. The legacy of prolonged instability has weakened the core frameworks of political governance, intensified poverty and contributed to the proliferation and splintering of armed groups. The recent escalation of violent armed conflicts in the eastern part of the country has triggered mass displacements, engendering widespread rights violations and humanitarian needs. The UNHCR estimates that more than five million people are internally displaced, while the caseload of refugees and asylum-seekers countrywide has exceeded 500,000, the majority reside outside settlements or formal refugee camps.[1] Recurring conflicts, natural disasters, and epidemics continue to exacerbate an already dire humanitarian crisis.
