UN WFP Consultant (Programme Policy Officer - IDM) Jobs in South Sudan

Job Purpose

WFPs programme in South Sudan aims to reach approximately 5 million people each year with both emergency and recovery assistance. The L3 emergency operation provides food and nutrition assistance for populations in crisis and delivers safety net programs such as food assistance for assets, purchase for progress, and school meals to food insecure people in more stable contexts.

In all its programmes, WFP seeks to employ the most efficient, effective, and appropriate transfer modalities, whether in-kind foo, cash-based transfers (CBT), or capacity development.

WFP is constantly looking for innovative solutions to address the root causes of food insecurity in South Sudan, and to respond to the challenges of delivering assistance efficiently and effectively in the County. WFP South Sudan has the aim of having a digital record of all the beneficiaries served, so that WFP can improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the operations.

WFP does this through biometric registration and import of beneficiary records from trusted partners and has the aim of a complete beneficiary registry of all the 5 million plus beneficiaries that WFP serves. Additionally, WFP aims to have digitally managed transfers to all these beneficiaries through a variety of transfer modalities and delivery mechanisms.

With these aims it is vital to the WDP South Sudan operation to have the beneficiary registry (SCOPE) be made up of non-duplicate people. WFP is seeking a programme Policy Officer to lead a team to be responsible for the maintenance and implementation of key strategies around unique identities.

The officer will be a person who can manage a broad set of operational and strategic processes and help to build both internal and external partnerships as WFP looks to strengthen the assurances around all its programming.
