Are you our new Area Manager in Venezuela?
The purpose of the Area Manager position is to ensure high quality and cost effective programme / project implementation within the border provinces with Colombia in Venezuela, from the base in San Cristobal.
NRC has been operational in Venezuela since 2005, initially focusing on providing legal assistance to Colombian refugees who had crossed the border due to tensions in their country of origin.
