NRC International NGO ICLA Specialist Nigeria Maiduguri Jobs in Nigeria


Since 2015, NRC Nigeria has been working to help displacement affected communities meet their basic needs, improve their livelihoods, access essential services, and enhance their resilience to future shocks through our six core competencies: Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), Shelter, Education, Information, Counseling and Legal Assistance (ICLA), Livelihoods and Food Security (LFS), Camp Management, and Protection.

NRC provides immediate assistance during the onset of emergencies through the rapid response mechanism (RRM). In 2021, NRC reached over 269,000 people with assistance.

The crisis in Nigeria is marked by violence against civilians causing acute humanitarian needs and displacement. In the North-East, the 13-year conflict has shattered lives, infrastructure, basic services, and social fabric, with some two million people internally displaced across Borno, Adamawa, and Yobe states.

In the north-west and north-central regions, violence and displacement are rooted in disputes over land and resources, which has been worsened by climate change. Many families have either lost identity papers while fleeing or never obtained them, hindering their ability to access essential services.

Sadly, millions of displaced people in Nigeria do not have legal documents, blocking them from accessing essential services and their rights. NRC collaborates with the authorities to improve access to legal and civil documentation and provides counseling on legal issues including housing, land and property (HLP) rights for people affected by conflict.
