About NRC

The Norwegian Refugee Council has an interesting and rewarding opportunity to be part of our newest country of operation – Sudan.
The NRC has recently re-registered to operate in Sudan, and is currently in the country start-up phase, conducting assessments and designing the first steps of the program. The focus will be given to people displaced by conflict, refugees, and vulnerable migrants, and potential geographical areas of work will be Khartoum state, South Kordofan, and the Blue Nile on a first phase, with the idea to expand to other States. 

As a priority, NRC is therefore hiring a Logistics Officer to be part of establishing NRC’s program in Sudan.

If staff are unable to provide this, NRC reserves the right to terminate the Contract of Employment.
