CONTEXTE DE TRAVAIL : « Outraged by the injustice faced by people with disabilities and vulnerable populations, we aspire to a world of solidarity and inclusion, enriched by our differences, where everyone can live in dignity »
Handicap International is changing his name and becomes « Humanity & Inclusion ».HI, Humanity & Inclusion is an independent and impartial aid and development organisation with no religious or political affiliations operating in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. We work alongside people with disabilities and vulnerable people to help meet their essential needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.
Since the organisation was first founded in 1982, we have set up development programmes in more than 55 countries and responded to many emergencies. Today we have a budget of around 150 million euros, with 3500 employees worldwide.

CONTEXT OF THE MISSION: In both humanitarian and development contexts, HI projects aim to focus on the « most vulnerable », including people and groups discriminated against, or those at high risk of discrimination. But trying to identify which people are « the most vulnerable » and why, and designing appropriate project responses can be challenging. HI has identified nine key factors which intersect to understand different people’s experiences, capacities, needs and vulnerabilities. These factors are: disability, age, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, geographical location, ethnic origin, religion, political opinion. Out of these nine factors, HI has prioritised Disability, Gender and Age.
HI is committed to deepen its work on Disability, Gender and Age and in 2019 it launched the Disability, Gender and Age (DGA) Policy and Guidance document across the International Federation.
To this end, HI has also developed a project aiming to strengthen the DGA intersectional approach through participatory development and dissemination of tools, in order to increase the capacity of actors to design and implement interventions for quality prevention, mitigation and response to violence. The Project aims to provide clarity and programmatic guidance for project staff to take an intersectional approach when designing and implementing projects, to make sure they are more responsive to the differing priorities, opportunities and barriers faced by beneficiaries.
Therefore, HI is seeking a Protection Specialist to be in charge of the full implementation of the above-mentioned Project. The recruited person will also support field teams in the development, implementation and quality control of other projects aimed at addressing violence based on disability, gender and age.
