UNHCR - United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees

UNHCR is recruiting a Field Security Associate (m/f), to be based in Pemba, Mozambique.
Description
  • The recently increased violence in the province of Cabo Delgado, Mozambique, has resulted in the displacement of more than 300,000 IDPs.

The first half of 2020 witnessed as many attacks by the non-state armed groups (NSAGs) as in all of 2019. The most pressing issues are violence and human rights violations towards civilians and concerns with overcrowding in homes hosting the IDPs
