United Nations World Food Programme Job Vacancies – 4 Positions

The United Nations World Food Programme, the world’s largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide, is currently seeking to employ suitable and qualified candidates for the following vacant positions below:

  1. Programme Associate (mVAM)
  2. Programme Associate (E-Vouchers)
  3. Programme Associate (Targeting)
  4. Programme Policy Officer (CBT Operations)

*Job Title: Programme Associate (E-Vouchers) G6

Requisition # 57422
Location: Maiduguri

Organizational Context
In north-east Nigeria, WFP is scaling up its program to assist up to 2 million people. While the bulk of the expansion in the newly liberated areas will be done initially through in-kind assistance, in urban areas there will be a month on month increase of cash-based transfers (CBT) to beneficiaries where market assessments have indicated the feasibility of non-in-kind assistance.

As per the 2017 Operational Plan, WFP will continue to significantly increase the number of beneficiaries receiving CBT in lieu of in kind in areas with functioning markets. However, the current mobile money mechanism is facing scale up constraints.

Consequently, the WFP Nigeria CO has decided to invest in additional CBT delivery mechanisms where possible. Multiple assessments (VAM, SC, Protection, IT, Finance) have indicated that a closed-loop electronic value voucher is feasible and appropriate for the expansion of CBT assistance. This mechanism would also address reporting and reconciliation requirements. Risks related to this approach and longer term implications (with eventually a gradual shift to unrestricted cash and financial inclusion through open loop cards) need to be clearly articulated, and a ‘continuation plan’ needs to be established and implemented to ensure sustainability and scale up.

Key Acountabilites (not all-inclusive)
Within delegated authority and in close coordination with Programme, Finance and Supply Chain, the Programme Associate – CBT will be responsible for the following key Tasks and Responsibilities:

  • Provide project management and general office support including facilitating implementation and monitoring of CBT programmes and activities in Maiduguri following WFP’s policies and procedures;
