Bangladesh: TEAM LEADER

NGO/UN Job Vacancy



Organization: CARE
Country: Bangladesh
Closing date: 15 Dec 2017

At CARE, we seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live with dignity and security.

This has been our vision since 1945, when we were founded to send lifesaving CARE Packages® to survivors of World War II. Today, CARE is a global leader in the movement to eradicate poverty. In 2016, CARE worked in 94 countries and reached 80 million people with an incredible range of life-saving programs. We also put women and girls at the center of our work because we know that we cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities. We seek dynamic, innovative thinkers to further our mission. If you share our core beliefs: poverty is an injustice; poverty is solvable; and together, we have the power to end it, join us.

Since August, 2017 the heavy influx of Myanmar Nationals in Cox’s Bazaar requires emergency response in accordance with CARE’s Humanitarian Mandate. CARE has started response and is preparing to scale up to 150,000 beneficiaries. A Rapid Needs Analysis by CARE Bangladesh (BD) indicates interventions are required in almost all humanitarian emergency sectors.
