Première Urgence Internationale (PUI) is a non-governmental, non-profit, non-political and non-religious international aid organization. Our teams are committed to supporting civilians’ victims of marginalization and exclusion, or hit by natural disasters, wars and economic collapses, by answering their fundamental needs. Our aim is to provide emergency relief to uprooted people in order to help them recover their dignity and regain self-sufficiency. The association leads in average 200 projects per year in the following sectors of intervention: food security, health, nutrition, construction and rehabilitation of infrastructures, water, sanitation, hygiene and economic recovery. PUI is providing assistance to around 7 million people in 21 countries in Africa, Asia, Middle East, Eastern Europe and France.
Humanitarian situation and needs:
The MERO opened in 2011 as a support office focusing mostly on PUI missions in development contexts. Given the emphasis on emergency programs induced by the development of the Syrian and, more recently, of the Iraqi and Yemen crises, the focus of the MERO is now set on supporting the operational development of the ME missions and the improvement of the emergency response provided by PUI in the region.
The MERO hosts a roster of advisors aiming at:
Our action in the field:
With an already strong presence in the Middle East for more than 30 years, PUI has increased considerably its intervention in this Region with the occurring of the Syrian crisis. Currently the NGO is assisting Syrians and host communities in four different countries (Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq) while it addresses the major humanitarian crisis in Yemen and carries out recovery and development projects in oPT.
In the Middle East, PUI is currently implementing projects in all the sectors of expertise of the NGO.
PUI’s strategy in the region is to develop a multi-sector / integrated approach in its countries of intervention, linking relief to development to support the affected population in the most efficient and sustainable manner.
As part of our activities in Middle East, we are looking for a Regional Security and Safety Advisor.
The Regional Safety and Security Advisor (RSSA) contributes to reducing the vulnerability of PUI staff and programs to the threats arising in highly insecure environments in the Middle East context.
The RSSA serves as a technical resource to PUI missions in the Middle East, providing risk assessment and analysis, security awareness training and capacity building, security management technical support, safety and security guidance, and timely advisory information. The RSSA is a main focal point on regional level to raise the security culture on the assigned missions. This part of the job will increase over time and represent the main function of the RSSA after the first six months. The advisory role will take place according to a specific support modulation matrix aiming at adapting the level of support to needs. It is expected that the RSSA will communicate regularly with all Security Focal Points and Security team members in the region and support with their onboarding, mentorship and development.
In 2018, the RSSA will contribute substantially to the HQ on-going ad-hoc task force on security aiming at defining new PUI global safety and security frameworks, guidelines and tools. S/he will mainly support the roll-out of the finalised policies and tools in the Middle-East misisons (and others if need be). Fulfillling this objective could represent up to 60% of the workload during the first six months.
Reporting to the MEROC (Middle East Regional Office Coordinator), the RSSA is based in Amman, but spends most of his/her time (ideally 70%) in mission in the different PUI countries.
