Location: Remote (based in Europe)
Deadline: 15 May 2022
Starting Date: As soon as possible
Employment: Part-time basis (20 hours per week)
Salary Range: $900 – $1,200 monthly (dependent on competencies)
INARA works with children (0-18 years of age) from conflict areas who have suffered from physical and mental harm. INARA fully covers and finances beneficiaries’ medical treatment, giving them free of charge healthcare until they are fully healed. Simultaneously, INARA provides case management services and pairs each beneficiary with a case manager who oversees their treatment and provides a support system for the child and family. INARA also provides in-house mental health services to help children cope and process their trauma. Additionally, INARA responds to crises and emergencies through a flexible Rapid Response Program (RRP), which enables INARA to redirect a portion of funding and resources to respond as needed. Currently, INARA has deployed this program to respond to and support the situation in Ukraine.
INARA is looking for a part-time Rapid Response Coordinator to support its growing efforts to respond to the ongoing Ukrainian crisis and war. As an initial response, INARA is providing consultations and training to mental health professionals, social workers, and others who are directly working with children on the ground and in neighboring countries. INARA’s team is also creating a PSS toolkit that will include basic information and tips and can be translated into different languages as needed. INARA has also written and begun distributing a toolkit that covers what parents can do to help their children during war time. INARA is also exploring helping to facilitate the efforts of small NGOs in neighboring countries who are focusing on vulnerable children, and are not equipped to host the influx of children nor do they have the mechanisms in place to accept international donations. This position will support these new efforts, as well as possible new responses as the situation and war continue.
This position is fully based on remote work and is offered as a short-term consultancy, with the possibility to expand the position into a long-term one. The selected candidate must have access to a reliable internet connection, a laptop, and can be based in any country in Europe. The Rapid Response Coordinator will be working closely with INARA’s President, the Fundraising & Development Coordinator in Europe, and with some coordination with the teams in Beirut, Lebanon and Gaziantep, Turkey.
