Organization: UN High Commissioner for Refugees
Country: Switzerland
Closing date: 28 Mar 2018

GENERAL BACKGROUND:

Wherever refugees flee, they carry with them their traditions and culture, the skills, knowledge and craftsmanship that unite and define a people or a culture. From the skilled leatherworking of the Tuareg in Burkina Faso to the fine embroidery of the Syrians in Lebanon, refugees possess a wide range of skills and talents.

UNHCR has launched MADE51 – Market Access, Design and Empowerment for refugee artisans. MADE51 is a new joint collaborative initiative, convened by UNHCR, to bring market access to refugee artisans. In the MADE51 model, UNHCR partners with local social enterprises in the field and together with refugee artisans, they develop an export-ready, market oriented product line. Through engagement with Strategic Partners who provide their expertise in key technical areas, MADE51 provides increased market access and export readiness to the local social enterprises and, in turn, to refugee artisans.

By modernizing traditional skills, building new business skills, partnering with social enterprises, and linking with retail brands and buyers who can source and support the product lines, MADE51 can connect refugee -made artisanal products with international markets where they are in demand.

PURPOSE AND SCOPE OF ASSIGNMENT:**

Under the direct supervision of the Head of the Livelihoods Unit, the MADE51 Initiative Manager leads on the institutional engagement of UNHCR in MADE51 and provides direction on all aspects of MADE51 including:

  • Plan and oversee the launch phase of MADE51, including the mobilization of human resources, financial resources, operational models, technical support, marketing and communications plans and activities and a field-based framework.

  • Manage the field-based support for artisanal programming, including a framework for MADE51 engagement, sensitization of local office focal points, technical guidance and support to local social enterprise partners.

  • Guide the field to identify, assess and support social enterprises to include refugee artisans to their operations according to Fair Trade practices, through missions, remote support and tools.

  • Share and apply lessons learned in MADE51 countries in order to effectively replicate and scale up the initiative.

  • Ensure proper collection, use and monitoring of baselines, standards and indicators needed to measure and analyze UNHCR’s performance, trends and target interventions.

  • Initiate and/or manage the development of a broad network of strategic partners in MADE51, good coordination practices and the development of partner capacities so that all partner activities are in line with and support the MADE51 framework, work plan, goals and activities.
