DEPUTY CHIEF OF PARTY
CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC/BANGUI

Catholic Relief Services (CRS) is an international non-governmental organization supporting relief and development work in over 90 countries around the world. CRS programs assist persons on the basis of need, regardless of creed, ethnicity or nationality. CRS works through local church and non-church partners to implement its programs. Background: CRS has been working in CAR since 2007, with the main office in the capital Bangui and current field offices in the provinces of Mbomou, Haut- Mbomou, Ouham, Nana Nambere, and Lobaye. The CRS program portfolio includes: community-based early warning systems, food security, agriculture recovery, livelihood support, shelter, and social cohesion and reconciliation. Building on current experience, and in response to increasing inter-community violence (between Muslims and Christians, agriculturalists and pastoralists, and IDPs and residents), the country program is also prioritizing mainstreaming social cohesion and conflict mitigation programming throughout all sectors. In 2012, CRS was awarded funding by USAID for a multi-year multi-million dollar program called "Secure, Empowered, Connected Communities" (SECC) to support grassroots efforts at improving security and community social cohesion in LRA-affected areas of CAR in the southeast of the country, as the first step in a process to eventually expand the program in DRC and South Sudan. After two years of operations in CAR the project is currently expanding into DRC. The main objectives of the project are as follows: 1. Empower target communities to employ adaptive strategies to address their security and community challenges, with an emphasis on the threat posed by the LRA; 2. Target communities are better informed and connected: to each other; national and local government structures; resources; local civil society, and other local, national, and international actors. 3. Effective communication and coordination with local, national, regional, and international actors working in LRA-affected areas of CAR are improved. Since the March 2013 coup, SECC programming was extended to conflict-affected communities in the northwest of CAR, principally Bossangoa and Bouar that will instead focus on: 1. Supporting communities' ability to maintain and promote social cohesion and address inter-religious and intra-community conflicts" as an additional strategic objective. The scope of this particular strategic objective was later widened in order to support programming in Bangui as well as cross-border areas with Chad and Cameroon. To respond to the expansion of SECC, CRS is seeking a Deputy Chief of Party (DCOP) who will primarily be responsible for the smooth running of day to day management of the project, with particular focus on programmatic operations and accountability.
