HelpAge International,Community-Based Rehabilitation Coordinator Jobs in Tanzania

Closing date: 25 Oct 2015
Salary negotiable depending on skills and experience
Full Time, 3-month post
Based in Tanzania with regular travel within the refugee camps
HelpAge International is a global network of not-for-profit organisations with a vision of a world where older people fulfil their potential to lead active, dignified, healthy and secure lives. With over 70 affiliates and 300 partners across more than 50 countries the HelpAge network brings together hundreds of organisations worldwide.

Pursuant to political unrest in Burundi, Tanzania has been welcoming a number of refugees who include people with special needs (PSNs), including older men and women, people with disabilities, those living with chronic medical conditions, single women living on their own, minorities such as Albinos, and other vulnerable groups. To ensure inclusion of this vulnerable population in humanitarian interventions, HelpAge International Tanzania is entering into a programme partnership to implement activities targeting the PSNs. HelpAge therefore intends to recruit a suitably skilled and experienced Community-Based Rehabilitation Coordinator. The successful candidate will implement and supervise a project providing access to care, protection and humanitarian assistance to these groups.
The ideal candidate will have a degree in physiotherapy, occupational therapy and/or public health. S/he will have considerable experience in community rehabilitation work, specifically working with PSNs and people with disabilities, and have sound programme management knowledge including coordinating multi-stakeholder interventions and representation, with focus on humanitarian programmes in emergencies and displacement contexts. The candidate should have the ability to operate independently with minimal supervision, with the ability to influence, communicate and negotiate as well as facilitate capacity building and training, and monitor budgets. Experience in ageing issues and awareness of humanitarian core principles are highly desirable.
As this is an urgent requirement applications will be reviewed on a daily basis and suitable candidates will be contacted prior to the closing date.
Closing date: 25 October 2015.
Start date: ASAP
HelpAge International is an equal opportunities employer.
