About Acted

“ We go the last mile. Founded in Afghanistan, against the backdrop of a forgotten crisis, Acted’s mission is to save lives and support people in meeting their needs in hard-to-reach areas. Millions of vulnerable people around the world need humanitarian assistance today, and hundreds of millions will need it tomorrow, in the face of the growing threat of climate change. We believe that our assistance must be conceptualised and delivered within the framework of people’s natural environments, and the territories on which they depend. Therefore, Acted pursues a triple mandate as a humanitarian, environmental and development aid actor, contributing to the relief, stabilisation, and recovery of crisis-affected people in fragile areas. This vision is guided by the motto “Think Local – Act Global” - reflecting the need to rely on a deep understanding of local territories and contexts to develop and implement actions based on local knowledge, structures and capacities. This local thinking contributes to a global response - running through all Acted programming and operations - as we work together towards the building of a 3ZERO world: a world with Zero Exclusion, Zero Carbon, and Zero Poverty”.

•            Explore innovative green programming opportunities and/or solutions within your realm of responsibilities and roles

•            Encouraging and promoting environmental safeguarding processes and environmental programming standards in accordance with SOPs and technical guideline notes

Job Purpose

 

ACTED is an international NGO with a 27-year history of going the last mile to support the most vulnerable worldwide, implementing emergency, rehabilitation and development projects in 43 of the world’s most vulnerable countries affected by conflicts, disasters or socio-economic hardship. ACTED’s vision is a 3Zero world: Zero Exclusion… because nobody should be left behind; Zero Carbon… because we only have one planet; Zero Poverty… because poverty should not hold back potential.

Aligned with our 3Zero Vision, ACTED launched the development of our 3Zero House Flagship Initiative. The 3Zero House is a physical or digital collaborative space, grounded in the local eco-systems, that will serve to multiply and accelerate partnerships, innovations, and solutions in a country by local actors. The 3Zero House serves as a unique hub that connects and empowers diverse actors from every sector - local social enterprises, civil society organizations (CSOs), and other agents of change - empowering them to innovate, to fuel the ecological transition and the digital transformation towards a Zero Exclusion, Zero Carbon, and Zero Poverty world.

The 3Zero House Coordinator is responsible to develop and promote the 3Zero House (3ZH) and related activities in Türkiye aligned with ACTED’s global 3Zero vision and ACTED’s overall 3Zero Program strategy. The 3Zero House Coordinator leads the development and roll out of the local 3ZH concept from inception to implementation including identification and relationship maintenance of partners, local/government authorities, global partners, and all other relevant stakeholders; development of strategic direction and fundraising opportunities including donor and private sector presentations for the 3ZH in collaboration with the country Programme Development team; development of a sustainable business case for the local 3Zero house; oversight of daily operations for the 3Zero House; and to support local and global advocacy and communication efforts related to the 3Zero House initiative including the development of communication materials in collaboration with HQ 3Zero Communication and Mobilization Department. The 3ZH Coordinator will serve as an ambassador and promoter of ACTED’s 3Zero Vision in Türkiye and coordinate between the 3ZH operations, and ACTED’s other programmatic operations in country. The 3ZH Coordinator reports to the Deputy Country Director and has technical reporting lines to the ACTED HQ Technical Director for Flagship Initiatives.   

To support Acted's response efforts to the tremendous impact of the February 2023 earthquake on the local economy in Türkiye, ACTED seeks a 3Zero House Project Coordinator for its operations in Hatay. ACTED Türkiye strives to establish a 3Zero House area in Hatay that will house approximately 20 stakeholders, including small businesses, cooperatives, community-based organizations (CBOs), and local civil society organizations, as well as provide space for community initiatives. This 3Zero House area will be strategically placed near currently underserved residential areas where people either live in temporary shelters near their homes or in newly constructed settlements of containers and prefabricated houses. As a result, the recovery of the local economy will be stimulated while access to key goods and services for communities severely affected by the earthquake will be improved.
