Livelihoods Officer

Organisational Context

JRS is an organization of the Catholic Church, in particular of the Society of Jesus and is a collaborative venture between the laity and the religious. Jesuit Refugee Service is involved in a service to refugees, IDPs and other forcibly displaced persons, through personal presence.  The service that JRS offers is direct and human, and often exposed to the sufferings and limitations of refugee life. This can involve arduous physical conditions, work under stress and limited resources. Through our presence we help sustain the values of human solidarity and hope in people who have faced the realities of displacement occasioned by disasters (be they natural or man-made), disastrous inequalities in political, economic, ethnic, social and other spheres of life, hatred and despair.

To do its work, JRS seeks to recruit those who can offer service under such difficult conditions, work in a collaborative and transparent manner, commit themselves to train others in whatever competencies they possess, and live a lifestyle that reflects a commitment to address issues of injustice.
