The Refugee Impact Advisory Coordinator will lead on the RIF’s TAF from within DRC Uganda, working alongside Innovative Financing Coordinators at DRC Regional and HQ. This role involves support in identification and screening of high impact private companies for the RIF, leading on impact development and due diligence of potential investees from a refugee impact perspective, managing technical assistance to scale investees’ refugee impact, defining and monitoring the refugee impact of investees, and identifying potential links to DRC and other humanitarian/development programming.
