Organization: International Committee of the Red Cross
Closing date: 8 Mar 2021
What we do
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) works worldwide to provide humanitarian assistance to people affected by conflict and armed violence. We take action in response to emergencies and at the same time promote respect for international humanitarian law. We are an independent and neutral organization, and our mandate stems essentially from the Geneva Conventions of 1949. We work closely with National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and with their International Federation in order to ensure a concerted, rational and rapid humanitarian response to the needs of the victims of armed conflict or any other situation of internal violence. We direct and coordinate the international activities conducted in these situations.
Engaging with Development Actors (DAs) -and other institutional donors- requires the ICRC to negotiate, track and process issues related to compliance (including sexual misconduct), fraud and corruption linked to the activities they support. Indeed, the concept of compliance risk management also applies to activities conducted by the ICRC in partnerships with others in the field, be it suppliers, members of the Movement and other operational partners (e.g. hospitals, universities, other NGOs). Beyond compliance with DAs’ and donor’s expectations and contractual commitments, managing risks of working in partnerships is essential to protect the ICRC’s reputation, its staff and affected population it assists.
To improve the way we identify, assess, document and monitor risks of working in partnerships, the Ethics, Risk and Compliance Office co-led with FAD the development of the global SOP on Third Party Partners due diligence (TPP DD) and further developed the Assurance in partnerships strategy (the strategy) approved in June 2020 by the Code of Conduct Steering Committee. The effective and efficient implementation of the TPP DD procedures and strategy requires strong coordination and collaboration between the various stakeholders (LOG, FAD, MOUV, OPS, REM) involved at HQ, in the field and the SSC.
The ERCO Due Diligence specialist contributes to accelerate the TPP DD implementation and related strategy and will equip ERCO, and the ICRC more broadly, to enable and regularly report on its effective global implementation.
Purpose of the position
The Due Diligence specialist is part of the Ethics Risk and Compliance Office and coordinates and ensures the effective implementation of the ICRC global Third-Party Partners due diligence procedures and related policies, strategies and processes with the different internal stakeholders to enhance the organization ability to manage risks of working in partnerships as well as delivering on related compliance commitments with Development Actors and other donors.

Organization: International Federation of Red Cross And Red Crescent Societies
Closing date: 25 Feb 2021
The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) is the world’s largest humanitarian organization, with 192 member National Societies. As part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, our work is guided by seven fundamental principles; humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality.
The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) is the world’s largest humanitarian organization, with a network of 192-member National Societies. The overall aim of the IFRC is “to inspire, encourage, facilitate, and promote at all times all forms of humanitarian activities by National Societies with a view to preventing and alleviating human suffering and thereby contributing to the maintenance and promotion of human dignity and peace in the world.” The IFRC works to meet the needs and improve the lives of vulnerable people before, during and after disasters, health emergencies and other crises.
The IFRC is part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement (Movement), together with its member National Societies and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). The work of the IFRC is guided by the following fundamental principles: humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity, and universality.
The IFRC is led by its Secretary General, and has its Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. The Headquarters are organized into three main Divisions: (i) National Society Development and Operations Coordination (NSDOC); (ii) Global Relations, Humanitarian Diplomacy and Digitalization (GRHDD); and (iii) Management Policy, Strategy and Corporate Services (MPSCS).
The IFRC has five regional offices in Africa, Asia Pacific, Middle East and North Africa, Europe, and the Americas. The IFRC also has country cluster delegations and country delegations throughout the world. Together, the Geneva Headquarters and the field structure (regional, cluster and country) comprise the IFRC Secretariat.
The Financial and Administrative Management Department (FAMD) falls under the Management Policy, Strategy and Corporate Services (MPSCS) Division. It is responsible for managing the overall budgeting, accounting, treasury, assets, financial reporting, and financial services operations of the Secretariat. FAMD also provides advice and support on financial matters, including financial policies and procedures, to other departments/divisions at the Secretariat Headquarters in Geneva and to offices in regions, clusters, and countries around the world.
