Job Description

Job Reference: CIV2313

CARE is an international development and humanitarian aid organisation fighting global poverty, with a special focus on working with Women and girls to bring lasting change to their communities. As a non-religious and non-political organisation, CARE works with communities to help overcome poverty by supporting development efforts and providing emergency assistance. We believe supporting women and girls is one of the most effective ways to create sustainable outcomes in poor communities.

CARE International in Vanuatu is implementing a multi-sector program in Vanuatu, supporting communities in the areas of Gender Equality, Resilience and Inclusive Governance. CARE Vanuatu’s Gender Equality Program includes projects in Efate and Tafea Province which encompass work across all domains of the CARE Gender Equality Framework (building agency, changing relations and transforming structures).

The projects include comprehensive and integrated work with communities in South Pentecost (chiefs, families, individuals, young women and men, adolescents and service providers) to improve the economic resilience of women and girls and strengthen an environment that supports their participation, decision-making and leadership in economic activities. Overall, the program is focusing on food security and women’s economic empowerment and leadership, as well as local CSO/partner strengthening.

This position is based in Port Vila, with frequent travel to Pentecost (up to 20% of the time), and eventually sometimes to Tanna as this is the headquarter of one of the partner organization (Nasi Tuan).
