International Medical Corps seeks to appoint a person to the role of gender based violence programme co-ordinator to improve the services available to migrants and refugees in Greece. The context of the role is as follows: Sexual violence and other forms of Gender-Based Violence (GBV) are of increasing concern for refugees and migrants, both in their places of origin as well as in the subsequent displacement. Refugee GBV survivors face heightened challenges to access services, as they are not aware of the services available in Greece in addition to facing language and other barriers.


The GBV Program Coordinator is responsible for design, implementation, and monitoring of GBV programming in Greece as part of the refugee response. The GBV Program Coordinator will be responsible for developing and managing the GBV program portfolio, including prevention and response activities across implementation sites and technical oversight of the GBV program staff. GBV program activities include services and support for GBV survivors and referral pathways, women empowerment programing for women and girls, awareness-raising and building prevention and response mechanisms in the community, and capacity-building and training on GBV. This also includes GBV mainstreaming and risk mitigation into ongoing humanitarian operations serving refugees and migrants.

The GBV Program Coordinator will represent GBV programming in appropriate coordination forum, as well as coordinating closely with other IMC sector leads and any further IMC Protection programming that develops. The GBV Program Coordinator will currently be under the supervision of the Country Director. This position is conditional on anticipated grant award.
