CARE is an international NGO with local staff and community partners in 100 countries. We create local solutions to poverty and inequality and we seek dignity for everyone every day and during times of crisis. These solutions have a broad range, from disaster response to food and nutrition to education and work for women and girls to healthy mothers and children. CARE puts women and girls at the center of everything we do because when they have equal access to resources, they lift their families and communities out of poverty. Our staff live where they work, which makes us effective at understanding the challenges they face. We’ve been doing this for 75 years, since World War II. It started with the world’s first CARE Package® of food for the post-war hungry in Europe. Our work today is as important as ever, we believe that poverty and inequality are historic injustices that we can end within a generation, for good. If you share our core beliefs: poverty is an injustice; poverty is solvable; and together, we have the power to end it, join us, and Fight with CARE.

The Senior Syrian Crisis Advocacy Coordinator will lead CARE International wide policy and advocacy efforts around the Syrian regional crisis, ensuring they are consistent, aligned with CARE’s MENA Humanitarian Advocacy Strategy, and CARE's Global Humanitarian Advocacy strategy, and effective in reducing the level of humanitarian suffering as a result of the Syrian crisis.
The Senior Syrian Crisis Advocacy Coordinator will build on efforts made on the Syria advocacy strategy and further develop, update and implement CARE International’s operational advocacy plan and policy efforts for the Syria sub-regional crisis response. This position will represent CARE at regional INGO forums for leading joint advocacy initiatives and disseminate information to key CI members involved in advocacy around the Syrian crisis.
This position requires a deep understanding of humanitarian issues, as well as the socio-political dynamics in Syria and the region. Given the conflict nature of this crisis this position requires extreme tact on the sensitive issues of access, border dynamics, and the fragile peace process, strong analytical skills, and the ability to conduct power mapping. The position also requires the identification of stakeholders and the development of viable theories of change and subsequent activities with the potential to reduce humanitarian suffering resulting from the conflict.
The post will spend around 60% of their time advocating on events in Syria itself, but will be expected to support the neighboring country teams and regional team around 40% of their time. Due to the changing demands as the crisis develops, a level of flexibility around priorities will be expected. The position reports to the Syria Country Director and is expected to travel in the region approximately 20% of the time.
