Established in 1924 in Geneva, Switzerland, International Social Service (ISS) is an international NGO with ISS strives to protect, defend, and support children, families, and individuals separated as a consequence of cross-border migration. ISS aims to ensure that respect for human rights is accorded to every individual, especially to children.

The General Secretariat of ISS (ISS-GS) is based in Geneva since the foundation of ISS in 1924 and is tasked of coordinating the overall activities of the International Network. The International Reference Centre for the rights of children deprived of their family (IRC) is a program established by and within the ISS-GS.

The IRC aims to promote a better respect of the rights of children deprived of their family or at risk of being so.

The position holder will report directly to the ISS Secretary General & CEO.

Job requirements:

  • Assume the overall coordination, supervision and support of a team of dedicated children’s rights and administrative staff to ensure a smooth follow of the IRC principal activities;
  • Be the focal contact point for Central Adoption Authorities on key issues pertaining to cooperation;
  • Lead the drafting of technical proposals for projects, such as UN and EU calls for action;

Mrz 022021

Country: Switzerland
Organization: International Federation of Red Cross And Red Crescent Societies
Closing date: 12 Mar 2021

Background

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.

Organizational Context

There are currently disparate communities and pockets of good practice across the spectrum of Early Warning and Early Action (EWEA), but there is no international mechanism that brings together the relevant actors from the development, humanitarian and climate communities. Further, while advances in science, technology and institutional coordination mean that it is often possible to anticipate a severe event and take action before it occurs, investments in early warning systems have focused on equipment and technology to predict the event, without ensuring the next step is taken to allow for early action in the most at-risk communities.

This partnership seeks to fill that gap and bring action at scale, bringing together existing governance and partnership mechanisms to better consolidate efforts by all stakeholders to leverage increased financial commitments, improve the way money is spent and aggregate and monitor targets along the spectrum of national and global frameworks, early warning systems, disaster risk reduction (DRR), domestic capacity building and early action. REAP ( Risk informed Early Action Partnership) will strengthen efforts in countries to develop early warning systems linked to early action, contributing to scaling up or building on for example the CREWS initiative and WISER and ARRCC programs to ensure investments are serving people most at-risk.

This Partnership was launched at 2019 Climate Summit in New York by the Prime Minister of Bangladesh. The International Federation of Red Cross Red Crescent Societies will host the Secretariat at their offices in Geneva, Switzerland, with the REAP Secretariat being fully independent of the IFRC.

The IFRC, a convening member of REAP, is the world’s largest volunteer-based humanitarian network. The Federation is a membership organisation established by and comprised of its member National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. Along with National Societies and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the Federation is part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement.
