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.
Main duties & responsibilities
Education and experience required
The ICRC values diversity and is committed to creating an inclusive working environment. We welcome applications from all qualified candidates.
