At CARE, we seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live with dignity and security.
This has been our vision since 1945, when we were founded to send lifesaving CARE Packages® to survivors of World War II. Today, CARE is a global leader in the movement to eradicate poverty. In 2016, CARE worked in 94 countries and reached 80 million people with an incredible range of life-saving programs. We also put women and girls at the center of our work because we know that we cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities. We seek dynamic, innovative thinkers to further our mission. If you share our core beliefs: poverty is an injustice; poverty is solvable; and together, we have the power to end it, join us.

CARE is working in Syria to support vulnerable women, men, girls and boys affected by the ongoing civil war. We work both through partners and through direct delivery of humanitarian assistance across different parts of Syria. Raising Syrian women’s voices and enabling their meaningful participation in decision-making within their households, communities, civil society, and the private sector is central to all CARE’s programming. Most of our work is through cross border, remote-managed assistance modalities from neighboring countries, working closely with Syrian civil society organizations. Currently, CARE’s core sectors in Syria are Protection, Food Security & Livelihoods (FSL), Shelter, WASH and Gender. There are over 120 CARE staff members working in hubs (Turkey, Jordan, North East Syria and Lebanon) across the region.
Recognizing the differential impact, the crisis has on women, men, girls and boys, CARE prioritizes gender-sensitivity in its emergency and recovery efforts and, where possible, the use of transformative approaches.
The Protection and Gender Advisor for the ‘Whole of Syria’ will be the Country Office’s primary focal point for the following:
This position will ensure alignment of the strategy and its actions to CARE’s gender and GBV frameworks and policy commitments, including CARE International Gender Policy, CARE MENA Social and Gender Justice Framework 2015 – 2030, CARE Gender Equality Frameworks, CARE Gender Equality and Women’s Voice Guidance Note and all other relevant frameworks and guidance.
