Outraged by the injustice faced by people with disabilities and vulnerable populations, we aspire to a world of solidarity and inclusion, enriched by our differences, where everyone can live in dignity.

Handicap International is an independent and impartial aid and development organisation working in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. We work alongside disabled and vulnerable people to help meet their essential needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.

Present in more than 55 countries, Handicap International is composed of 2 operational directions:

  • The Direction of Humanitarian Action
  • The Direction of Development Action


MISSION CONTEXT

In April 2011 HI deployed its first teams on the ground to Benghazi to deliver emergency Risk Education (RE) to civilians caught in the conflict that erupted two months earlier between those loyal to the long-time rule of Colonel Gaddafi and those who opposed it. Within five months of delivering emergency RE to populations in the east to the most at risk communities, predominantly to internally displaced persons living in camps, once the security situation stabilised HI expanded to Misrata and Sirte to deliver Risk Education to affected populations.

Throughout the succeeding three years the programme transformed from emergency interventions into a post conflict reconstruction, operating an integrated Mine Action programme undertaking EOD through BAC and Spot Tasks, and clearance of explosive remnants of war (ERW) from within a large Ammunition Storage Area (ASA) in Misrata that had been damaged by NATO bombs in 2011, Risk Awareness (RA) on Explosive Remnants of War (ERW) and Small Arms and Light Weapons (SALW) and Community Liaison within conflict affected communities of Tripoli, Misrata and Sirte.

Between 2011-2014, over 122,000 items of ERW were removed from over 30 million m2 of high impacted and contaminated land. Safe land is returned to those who desperately need it, to farm, for recreation and for restoration of damaged infrastructure, including homes, health centres and schools. Over 110,000 at-risk civilians have had access to life-saving Risk Awareness including Internally Displaced Persons, teachers, school children, Boy Scouts and civil society organisations.

Between February 2015 – March 2016 HI implemented a project on emergency conventional weapons risk awareness in western Libya. Also in 2016 a project of ‘Inclusive community based child protection and psychosocial services for conflict affected children in Tripoli’is currently being implemented until December 2016. A new project on victim assistance will begin in November. The strategy for 2017 is to continue to develop both mine action projects and support to the health sector in Libya, which has been severely effected by the ongoing conflict.


WORKING ENVIRONMENT

Since August 2014 the international community, almost in its entirety, including NGOs, UN agencies and embassies relocated to Tunisia due to the political and security situation in Libya. The main coordination for Libya programmes is still operating from Tunisia. Due to the remote management of the projects, as well as programme development, the Head of Mission will be heavily involved in supporting project implementation along with project staff ensuring donor obligations are met with special emphasis on monitoring and evaluation of activities through HI project staff and partners.

The post-holder directly line-manages 2 staff: the Administration/Logistic Coordinator and a Project Manager. Main external interactions for the Head of Mission include the national mine action authorities and other government institutions, UNMAS and other NGOs, as well as the donor community and local partners. Coordination between the different stakeholders takes place at least once a month through programme managers and operational meetings in Tunis.

The Head of Mission reports directly the Desk Manager of the Humanitarian Action Division at HQ level.

The main stakes are:

  • Programme strategy and development (fundraising)
  • Team management and capacity building of national colleagues
  • Partnership management with a range of international and national partners from non-government, government and inter-governmental organisations


Responsibility 1:
Ensure the programme’s implementation and development

Objective: Ensure programme implementation in accordance with established and new proposals, policies, procedures and HI core values.

Responsibility 2: Represent HI-Libya

Objective: Represent and communicate HI Libya’s activities with national authorities, donors and media and other relevant stakeholders.

Responsibility 3: Lead, manage and motivate national and international staff

Objective: Ensure a safe, efficient and cost-effective management of the programme; and contribute to an atmosphere conducive to professional growth and development.

Responsibility 4: Build and manage an adequate support services department

Objective:Guarantee the overall well-functioning of HI Libya, and coordinate adequately with HI Tunisia support services department.

Support the redeployment of the Support Services Coordination into Libya.

Responsibility 5: Security

  • Develop a security plan for allowing punctual expatriate staff missions to Libya, then for supporting the permanent redeployment of the Coordination team in Tripoli
  • Monitor closely the security situation in Libya through collecting information from a variety of sources, compiling monthly incident reports to guide programme security management
  • Ensure adequate adherence to HI’s security policy by all project personnel and contribute to the revision of the security policy on a regular basis.
  • Provide security briefings to new staff in Tunisia and Libya

TUNISIA

Context/Security: Although Tunisia is considered as a safe country to work in, the risk of terrorist attacks is real (last incidents in 2015: Bardo National Museum attack; Sousse attack; Tunis bombing on Presidential guards). Risk mitigation measures are in place within the mission. Tunis remains a place where a good standard of living can be expected.

Travel: Roads are in good conditions however are often overcrowded and car accidents are a regular occurrence because of this.

Living conditions: He/she will share accommodation with between 1 – 2 other expatriates, unless they choose to rent their own apartment.

LIBYA

Libya can be a highly stressful environment with fluctuant security. International staff should to be aware that Libya is in a state of conflict in many areas of the country, most significantly now in Sirte in north-central Libya where former opposing armed factions are coordinating to expel the Islamic State group from the city.

Security: Level 3 for Tripoli (unstable and tense). When visits to Libya are required, a curfew would be imposed and movement restrictions applied.

Travel: Roads are in good state; nevertheless, traffic can be pretty hazardous. traffic can be pretty hazardous. Check-points are set up in cities and on highways. Movement by road would be with a HI driver at all times.
