Stellenausschreibung: Director Quality Assurance & Oversight (m/f/d)


About International Rescue Committee

Over the past 80 years, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) has developed unparalleled expertise in responding to emergencies and helping uprooted communities to rebuild. Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the IRC’s mission is to help people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover, and gain control of their future. The International Rescue Committee Deutschland is part of the IRC global network. The IRC is on the ground in more than 40 countries, providing emergency relief and rebuilding lives in the wake of disaster. The IRC is committed to a culture of bold leadership, innovation in all aspects of our work, creative partnerships and, most crucially, accountability to those we serve.

IRC Germany (IRC DE) was established in 2016 in order to further enhance the profile of the German humanitarian and development sector, to provide further opportunities for advocacy on behalf of the people we serve and to support German state and civil society in serving people seeking safety in Germany. Since its establishment, IRC DE has grown rapidly and has representations in Bonn and Berlin. It is working with major German statutory donors, like the German Federal Foreign Office, KfW, and GIZ. IRC DE is also cooperating with German civil society organizations. Since 2019, IRC DE holds a Framework Partnership Agreement (FPA) with DG ECHO.
