I don’t usually post jobs on here but this one strikes me as a role worth circulating to my peers.   It is for an HR manager to work in Iraq for MAG who genuinely save lives by working with others to reclaim land contaminated with the debris of conflict, to reduce the daily risk of death or injury for civilians, and to create safe and secure conditions for development.  They are seeking and HR manager.

In 1997 MAG shared the Nobel Peace Prize as a founding member of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines for our work to ban landmines.    They have worked in Iraq since 1992, working to clear contaminated land and release this back to local populations. Cleared land has also been used to build and improve infrastructure, including new roads, schools and hospitals.

MAG is looking to appoint an HR Manager to join its programme in Northern Iraq. You will support the senior management team to develop and implement effective HR initiatives and strengthen the HR function. The Iraq programme is MAG’s largest, with 500 national staff operating in three locations across Kurdistan.

The HR Manager will be based in Erbil, but will travel regularly to operational bases. The successful candidate will need previous experience of delivering HR services in an international NGO. You will also need experience of implementing a wide range of effective HR policies, procedures and projects. You will work closely with the team in-country and remotely with HR colleagues at HQ and you will therefore need to demonstrate excellent interpersonal skills, with a pragmatic approach to your work.

The HR Manager will be responsible for reviewing and developing all aspects of human resource functions, including recruitment, learning and development, talent management and reward. You will develop and implement a sustainable HR framework in country and capacity build the HR function.

Candidates need to be able to deploy by mid February 2014.
