Required languages (expected Overall ability is at least B2 level):
Occupational Safety and Health Considerations:
The security situation in South Sudan though generally stable, remains fragile and fluid in complex and unpredictable environment and is characterized by low intensity and localized armed conflict in some areas, high levels of crime across the country, inter/intra communal conflict over a diverse range of issues including cattle raids, competition for resources and revenge attacks and regular civil unrest in refugee and IDP operations and host community. These challenges continue directly and indirectly impact on UNHCR operations. The signing of the Revitalized Agreement of the Resolution of Conflict in South Sudan in September 2018 represented an important milestone for the country. The ceasefire is holding in many areas of the country except in some few locations where localized and low intensity armed conflict continues to impact on security situation. Many areas in the country are also affected by season flooding which has also displaced significant number of people.
The security level in South Sudan is assessed as substantial (security level 4) in all areas.
SRM measures in place:
UN curfew is in force across the country, timing differs from one SRM Area to another. UN curfew is from 19:00 to 05:00 in Juba.
International personnel must request and receive security clearance for official and non-official travel.
International personnel on mission must stay in either a UN facility or UN approved commercial lodging for staff members.
Safe and Secure Approaches in Field Environment (SSAFE) to be conducted in areas with HIGH Risk level and above.
All international and national personnel must be issued with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and VHF radios.
Nature of Position:
The South Sudan Operation is very complex, fluid, and high-risk covering all four pillars of UNHCR.
The operation comprises of the Representation office in Juba with 2 Sub-offices and 7 Field Offices. The Program CBI Officer reports directly to the Senior Program Officer in the Country Office in Juba and supervises the Assistant Program CBI Officer in the unit. She/he is expected to provide support to all the Sub and Field Offices in the operation. Given the complexity of the South Sudan Operation, the incumbent needs to be focused on maintaining good working relation with government officials and other UN humanitarian agencies.
Living and Working Conditions:
South Sudan is classified as an E non-family High Risk duty station with a 6-week R&R cycle and is prone to malaria. Movement to and from locations require official vehicle transport; use of taxi is not allowed. There are very limited medical facilities in South Sudan, with facilities concentrated in Juba.
All international personnel reside in UNHCR provided accommodation equipped with furniture, cafeteria, housekeeping services and a gym or some sports equipment. In Juba, all basic foods are available in the market ranging from meat, dairy, fruit, and vegetables. There are a few hotels with pools and restaurants where staff can visit. While in the field, food supply varies depending on the season. Taking photos is strongly discouraged in all locations, as may result in arrest by local security forces. Extreme caution is required while driving a UN vehicle due to bad local driving culture, lots of motorbikes and three-wheelers (boda-boda) and periodic attempts by local police to extort money from the driver for whatever violation claimed.
There are several airlines flying from most destinations to Juba via Dubai, Nairobi, Addis Ababa, Istanbul, Khartoum, Cairo, or Entebbe. Travel to field offices in South Sudan are handled by UN humanitarian flights.
Staff can open USD bank accounts in South Sudan and only high US Dollar bills i.e. US$50 and US$100 are accepted for foreign currency exchange transactions.
