Duties & Responsibilities


The Project Manager / Team Leader will be supporting the establishment of Vocational Training Centers in Nangarhar provinces and the provision of vocational trainings to not less than 600 job-seekers facilitating placement in waged employment or support self-employment start-up to training graduates.

Project Background:

Targeting the Eastern province of Nangarhar ACTED will support employment-creation by providing vocational trainings to returnees and host communities in the wake of the massive and ongoing return of Afghan people from Pakistan. The memorandum of Understanding that allows Afghan refugees to stay in Pakistan expires at the end of 2018. In consequence a potentially large-scale influx of returnees is expected. Returnees experience high levels of socio-economic vulnerability including restricted access to basic services and employment opportunities. Nangarhar Province already hosts the single largest returnee community in Afghanistan. The existing strain on public service delivery and livelihoods potential in Nangarhar will be exacerbated by a sudden influx of returnees from neighboring Pakistan which will result in increased hardship for both returnees and receiving communities.
