This position is part of WFP Jordan’s Programme Delivery pillar. The person will report to the international Livelihood officer. Job holders are likely to be working under the close support and guidance of a more experienced professional staff member receiving guidance and regular feedback on work performed. They are typically involved in programme or policy activities or similar nature and analytical work of limited complexity.


WFP Jordan is embarking on a new three-year strategy (Jordan Country Strategic Plan 2020 - 2022) which foresees the expansion of livelihoods activities to support the shift from relief to resilience. This will require innovative programming approaches and strategic partnerships to leverage WFP’s comparative advantages in vulnerability analysis, operational capacity, supply chain expertise and delivering at scale.

The Programme Policy Officer (Livelihood) will support the design and management of activities related to food for training and the promotion and set up of small businesses in urban settings. These activities will focus both on vulnerable Jordanians and refugees, with a particular focus on women and youth.
