The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), Country Cluster Support Team, Bangkok Office seeks to appoint a:

Title:               Protection Gender and Inclusion Officer 

Reports to:      Senior DRR Project Manager

Location:         Based in Bangkok, Thailand

Organizational background:

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) is the world's largest humanitarian network, reaching 150 million people each year through its 190 member National Societies. The Organization acts before, during and after disasters, crises and health emergences in order to meet the needs and improve the lives of vulnerable people.

Our work is guided by seven fundamental principles (humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality), policies and by Strategy 2020, which voices our collective vision and determination to move forward in tackling the major challenges that confront humanity in the present decade.

The IFRC Secretariat has a decentralized structure: five regional offices (each with several CCST and country offices reporting to it) covering the globe and responsible for frontline delivery through National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, backed by the Secretariat HQ based in Geneva.

Job Purpose:

Strategy 2020 guides the actions of the IFRC. It defines three strategic aims for the IFRC and its member National Societies, in order to align under a common vision:

  1. Save lives and help people prepare for and recover from disasters and crises.
  2. Enable safer and healthy living, and make better provision for marginalised people
  3. Promote social inclusion and a culture of non-violence and peace

The IFRC Strategic Framework on Gender and Diversity Issues 2013-2020, which aligns with Strategy 2020, guides the Protection, Gender and Inclusion work within the IFRC. It emphasizes the need to address the root causes and social determinants of gender inequality and sexual and gender-based violence, as well as social inequality based on diversity factors (ethnicity, disability inclusion, migration status, age, etc). Further, the IFRC’s Protection, Gender and Inclusion supports to its National Societies are underpinned by commitments made in Resolution 3 of the 32nd International Conference of the Red Cross Red Crescent to Prevent and Reduce Sexual and Gender-based Violence, as well as through its operational guidance, the IFRC Minimum Standard Commitments to gender and diversity in emergency programming (pilot, 2015).

The role of Protection, Gender and Inclusion (PGI) Officer will be to increase the capacity of IFRC CCST and the Mekong National Societies to integrate protection, gender and inclusion policies and tools across program areas in order to reduce gender and diversity inequality, gender discrimination and gender- based violence. The aim of the PGI is to: provide technical support to IFRC teams and to the National Societies in mainstreaming Gender and Diversity analysis and considerations into all programmes and services; to assist and support the National Societies to mainstream Protection, Gender and Inclusion issues into their organisational development (including into their Strategic Plans and gender and diversity policies) and to systematically incorporate Gender and Diversity into all systems, procedures and tools; and lastly to support the monitoring of progress.

The PGI Officer will report to Senior DRR Project manager, and has a technical link to the Asia Pacific Gender and Diversity Coordinator in the Asia Pacific Regional Office in Kuala Lumpur.
