World Renew

Background and Purpose:

World Renew has a suite of safeguarding policies, including a Complaints Policy. To strengthen our safeguarding work further World Renew is hiring six Social Inclusion and Safeguarding Coordinators.  The Coordinators will be based in each operational department and, together with Country Focal Points and Regional and IDR Directors, will be integral to the organization’s safeguarding work.  To ensure this model is effective, it is important that all receive a consistent orientation, training to best practices and coaching, as needed.  This one-year consultancy envisages to provide just that – a consistent orientation, pro-active training and ongoing support.
