CARE Canada’s Global Programs Team is responsible for developing and managing the organization’s programs in both development and humanitarian assistance focusing on the injustice of poverty and gender inequality. We recently approved an ambitious Strategic Plan From Caring Comes Courage.
The new Strategic Plan reaffirms our gender-equality focus and our dual-mandated status. Our ultimate impact goal is to support women’s leadership for a gender-just future grounded in strong programs supporting safety/protection, health and dignified livelihoods across both humanitarian and development settings. The Global Programs unit is responsible for the overall management of CARE Canada’s global programming circa $50m annual development, nexus and humanitarian programming portfolio.
CARE Canada is committed to meeting the urgent life-saving needs of women, men, girls and boys affected by disasters and conflict, consistent with CARE’s humanitarian mandate. In line with the CARE Humanitarian Strategy and CARE Canada’s Strategy, CARE Canada places humanitarian and emergency response at the core of CARE’s programming and global identity to fight poverty and to strengthen CARE’s global capacity to deliver high quality programming in key technical sectors with a focus on women and girls.
CARE experience has shown that capacity is often stretched beyond its limits by humanitarian disasters, and that additional senior staff resources are needed to provide operational and strategic support from the onset to ensure a more effective response and to reduce financial and operational risks. As a key pillar supporting the Humanitarian and Emergency Strategy, CARE Canada is hosting the Rapid Response Team on behalf of CARE International. The CI-RRT is a standing team of experienced, multi-disciplinary team of emergency response specialists. The team hosted at CARE Canada currently stands at 10. The role provides leadership, management and deployment of the CARE Canada hosted members of the CARE International Rapid Response Team ensuring effective capacity for CARE’s global emergency operations.
Under the leadership of the VP, Global Programs, the Head of Rapid Response Team, will work within the Global Programs Unit, and is responsible for ensuring high quality and effective emergency responses through oversight and management of the following areas:
