Partnership Manager - Beirut

NRC’s Lebanon country programme consists nearly 450 staff and in 2019, NRC’s programmes in Lebanon reached nearly 330,314 refugee and host community beneficiaries. In Lebanon, NRC implements information, counselling and legal assistance (ICLA), shelter, WASH and education for Syrian and Palestinian refugees, as well as vulnerable Lebanese. NRC Lebanon’s Covid-19 response includes crosscutting activities and sector-specific Covid-19 work in the area of water, sanitation and hygiene, shelter, ICLA and education. NRC has also been implementing activities together with other NGOs to extend its access to people in need. The budget for 2019 exceeded USD 33 million.

To work in partnership most effectively, NRC Lebanon will need to strengthen its internal systems and develop standard operating procedures for partnership management, building on NRC’s existing partnership toolkit.
