    Job Description

    The International Rescue Committee (IRC) is one of the world’s leading humanitarian relief and development organisations.

    Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the IRC responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people survive, recover and rebuild their lives.

    The IRC delivers emergency aid, protects children, provides health care, prevents and responds to violence against women and girls, safeguards human rights and helps to kick-start economic recovery.

    At work today in over 35 countries and in 16 US cities, the IRC restores hope and opportunity to millions of people. IRC leads the way from harm to home.

    The IRC is committed to a culture of bold leadership, innovation in all aspects of our work, creative partnerships and, most crucially, accountability to those we serve. The IRC is a tireless advocate for the most vulnerable.

    The BILLY project:

    Using a “bundled services” model in Nairobi, the IRC is implementing a five-year project providing a variety of related employment services that can be customized and sequenced for individual clients, depending on their interest and experience.

    BILLY is an acronym for Building Income and Leveraging Livelihoods for the Youth.Employment and entrepreneurship support will be delivered through three livelihoods centers – walk-in and referral centers located in the slums where refugees and vulnerable Kenyans can receive career counselling and individualized packages of training and support that will help them become employed or self-employed.

    The first IRC-Led livelihoods resource center is already in operation in Eastleigh Pangani, with two more centers to be opened in the near future in other target areas within Nairobi.

    BILLY offers interventions that include business training, literacy and numeracy classes, vocational training, apprenticeships, job counselling and placement, business plan development, business mentorship and business growth, along with referrals to protection services.

    BILLY will facilitate connections to financial service providers and is currently supporting urban savings and loan associations (USLAs).

    BILLY has adopted an Approach to Client-Responsiveness Programming to ensure clients’ voices are reflected in decision making throughout the project cycle.

    Client Responsiveness:

  • In 2016, the IRC developed its Approach to Client Responsive Programming. The Framework which articulates the Approach is being applied, tested and developed through collaboration with IRC country programmes.
  • The BILLY project is the first that the IRC has systematically applied this approach to the full project cycle of a unique programme, and learning from this experience will inform both the delivery of the BILLY project and IRC’s global approach.
