Founded in 1994, TGH is a French international solidarity organization based in Lyon. The association designs and implements emergency, rehabilitation and development programs in the following sectors: water, hygiene and sanitation, civil engineering, food security and rural development, socio-educational and psychosocial. TGH is currently operating in 10 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East.

Presentation of the mission

TGH is present in Sudan since September 2003, and opened its first project for the victims of the Darfur crisis in one of the IDPs camp in West Darfur (Riyad camp of Geneina) in June 2004. TGH has since extended its activities in West Darfur and Central Darfur, implementing its projects through 5 operational bases (Geneina in West Darfur; Bindizi, Um Dukhun, Golo and Zalingei in Central Darfur). All projects are coordinated from Khartoum main office. TGH currently works in the fields of water and sanitation, hygiene promotion, NFIs/Shelters, education, food security and livelihood.

TGH’s strategy in Darfur consists in shifting gradually and where appropriate to more development-oriented programming, while maintaining the capacity to provide humanitarian assistance when needed.

Ongoing operations include:

TGH is currently funded in Sudan by a set of different donors: SHF, ECHO, EUROPEAID, USAID, IOM (RRF), UNICEF, AFD and CIAA.

General objectives of the study

In the frame of the structure of support to staff by Triangle Génération Humanitaire (TGH) in Sudan, under the supervision of the Country Director, and in coordination with the HR coordinator, the national staff HR Expert will propose a study of HR Policy and Procedure, along with review of Remuneration package for national staff in Sudan.

To ensure TGH policies remain in line with Sudan Labour Laws, and in light of the significant changes to Sudan’s economic situation TGH intends to implement a full study and review of all HR Policies and procedures, along with a review of salary scale (in line with a market review based on significantly increased cost of living), remuneration packages and payment methodologies (currencies, and subsequent tax implications). 

This short mission brings the necessary technical support to the mission to complete this review, and subsequently conduct workshops (Khartoum, Darfur, South Kordofan) with staff to ensure transparency of all changes.

It will comprise an assessment of the current status of HR TGH policies, through desk review, review of Sudan Labour Law, comparison with other INGO available data, market review of average cost of living, and consultation with TGH staff.

Security, working and living conditions

Based in Khartoum, the Reporting Officer will perform short-term missions to Darfur bases. Security situation in Darfur is very variable from place to place and period. Field-visits are authorized when security conditions allow it. The movements to the field-bases are ensured by United Nations Humanitarian Air Services- UNHAS.

Current social context in Sudan, especially in Khartoum, can lead to temporary tightened security procedures (movement restrictions, etc.).

Health risks are limited and there is little prevalence of malaria or other diseases in Khartoum. Quality medical services are available in Khartoum.

The mission in Khartoum has an office/ guesthouse of a significant size (4 floors) providing adequate separation of work and living space. Communication means are good (efficient internet, international phones).

Khartoum enjoys different places for extra-professional activities: markets, swimming pools, gardens, access to cultural sites out of Khartoum. The social life is rather rich.

There are daily flights to regional and Europe destinations and expatriates go out of the country every 3 months for breaks.
