Nature of Position:

More than 744,000 people have been internally displaced by armed conflict in Mozambique 's Cabo Delgado Province since 2017. Mozambique currently also hosts more than 28,500 refugees and asylum seekers, of which 9,500 reside in Maratane refugee settlement, Nampula Province. Another root cause of displacement is Mozambique 's susceptibility to natural disasters, as evidenced by cyclones in 2019, 2021 and 2022.

UNHCR leads the Protection Cluster, at national and at Cabo Delgado levels, and is key member in CCCM as well as in Shelter & NFIs Clusters. Important Government strategies/plans are underway to address the root causes of the conflict, mitigate its impacts and drive development. UNHCR is working with development actors to support the inclusion of IDPs and refugees into development plans, actions and policies and thus leaving no one behind in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

For IDPs response, the operation has partnership with international and national partners as well as sister UN Agencies while working closely with Mozambican National Institute for Disaster Management and Risk Reduction (INGD). UNHCR Mozambique is a part of the UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF) as well as actively involved in Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP).

The Programme Officer reports to the Head of Sub-Office and supervises one Project Manager, one Associate Programme Officer, and one Programme Associate. The Programme Officer should have technical knowledge in the new Results-Based Management (RBM) and will consult and coordinate with the Senior Programme Officer based in Maputo in terms of providing support to the new Results-Based Management (RBM) using COMPASS which is a KEY planning, budgeting and reporting tool.

While technical and oversight support will be provided in coordination with the Senior Programme Officer, the Programme Officer should have experience in supervising and coordinating all programme-related activities in IDPs situations as well as managing partnership with the government, National and International NGOs as well as UN Agencies. Experience in project writing, project monitoring is an asset. Experience with offline tracking of earmarked contribution, reporting and or coordinating reporting for ECHO and Japanese donors including other donors as well as development partnerships be an asset. Further to these skills and experiences with training and capacity building to NGO partners and on the job coaching for programme functions is required as partners and local programme staff are newly recruited/selected.

Living and Working Conditions:

The position is based in Pemba, the capital of Cabo Delgado Province, in the north of Mozambique. Pemba is a D, Non-Family duty-station. Mozambique has a total population of about 29 million people and Maputo is its capital city. The total area of Mozambique is 799,380 Km square from North to South. It is tropical hot and humid. The hottest and wettest months are December to February, when the average daily minimum temperatures are around 22 °c and the average daily highs of 30 °c. The rain season is between October and April. Winters (June to August) are mild with the average daily temperature ranging from 13 °C to 24 °C. Cabo Delgado is bordering Tanzania, with a population of over 2.2 million individuals according to the 2017 census. The province, considered one of the poorest in the country, was hit by cyclone Kenneth in April 2019, which affected several villages, causing material damage and the displacement of many residents. The province has also been targeted by armed groups that have been attacking local villages since October 2017 to date. The number and intensity of attacks increased consistently in 2020. Communication and transport services are available at various costs. The housing market is healthy but quite expensive (from US$ 800 to US$ 1,500 per month). Pemba has one medium-large supermarket and one international airport. The metical is the local currency and exchange rate stands at USD 1 equivalent to about 63.25 meticais (MZN) as per December 2022. Pemba has 3 health facilities: ISOS clinic, CLIDIS private clinic and the Provincial hospital. There is a wide range of Banks and ATMs to meet financial needs. Credit/debit cards are accepted in most places. UNDSS-cleared hotels are available, with the rates differing depending on the availability and season. MOSS compliant apartments are available. The current operational circumstances require frequently long working hours. This is a stressful work context, making capacity for self-care critical.

According to the security level system, Cabo Delgado is at level 4. Crime in Pemba and villages outside of the capital is concerning and UN personnel must remain vigilant and aware of their surroundings. Traffic accidents are common in Mozambique due to the poor condition of the roads and poor driving and vehicle standards.
