Positions Vacant


International Program Coordinator - Protection (3 days per week)

  • Responsible for contributing to the achievement of AfP’s Strategic Plan and its three-year Operation Plan on Protection.
  • Reports to the Protection Program Manager (the IPCP’s line manager).
  • Responsible for program monitoring and evaluation, the preparation of project proposals, reports, financial acquittals, budget submissions, reports and other duties as required.
  • Provides technical support on protection to AfP staff and local program partners.

The International Program Coordinator - Protection (IPCP) will play a key role in the small but dynamic team within Act for Peace (AfP), which supports communities affected by conflict, disasters and displacement around the world.

Under its Strategic Plan, AfP maintains a strong focus on protection through all of our work. The IPCP will work alongside other program coordinators, who support overseas partners and their programs, draw on the support of technical specialists in protection, effectiveness, finance and institutional fundraising, and be expected to coordinate a portfolio of partner-implemented protection programs, variously funded by donors and/or AfP, and implemented by local partners with varying capacities and technical expertise. The IPCP will also be responsible for supporting partners to develop community-based protection programs and mainstream protection principles and standards in programs.

International travel will be required (approx. 2-5 weeks per year) as the IPCP will directly manage AfP’s relations with partners running programs supported by AfP.

Applications close Monday 25th of June at 9am. For enquiries, please contact Sharon Edington on sedington@actforpeace.org.au.
