Work context

Action Against Hunger has been operating in Iraq since 2013, following the sudden massive influx of refugees fleeing the Syrian crisis. The multiple offensives of ISIS have caused the displacement of more than three million people across the country. In the summer of 2014, attacks on Mosul and the Sinjar region pushed hundreds of thousands of people into Iraqi Kurdistan. ACF has since been implementing its humanitarian response with an integrated, multi-sectoral approach, addressing WASH, Mental Health & Care Practices, Food Security & Livelihoods amongst the Iraqi Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in camp and non-camp settings, as well as returnees and host communities.

As of today, ACF Iraq is operational in Ninewa and Dohuk Governorates and working towards the expansion of its activities to South / Central Iraq. Throughout 2019, ACF has been implementing its humanitarian response in Iraq with an integrated, multi-sectorial approach, addressing WASH, MHCP, Food Security & Livelihoods, as well as Nutrition-related needs in Sinune and Mosul. In 2020, ACF is willing to continue the provision of humanitarian response in the areas still presenting urgent needs while designing and rolling out post-emergency / recovery interventions.

As of January 2020, ACF’s team is running operations of approximatively 8.2 million EUR. ACF Iraq currently employs 18 expatriate and 126 national staff, working from the coordination office in Erbil, a field office in Dohuk, a field office in Mosul, a field sub-office in Sinune as well as an office in Baghdad.


You would be based in Erbil.

Erbil, is the capital and largest city of Kurdistan Region of Iraq. It is located approximately 350 kilometres north of Baghdad. It has about 850,000 inhabitants. Several governmental, economic and leisure facilities are located in Erbil, making it an important city of the Kurdistan Region. The majority of the population living in the city are Kurdish, with a minority of Assyrians, Turkmen and Arabs.

Erbil has been relatively secured due to the heavy presence of the Peshmerga (Kurdish Army) and Assayesh (Kurdish Intelligence) on the entrances and within the city. However, in 2014 and 2015 these security measures were not sufficient to hinder the Islamic State to carry out asymmetric attacks. In November 2014, the first asymmetric attack (SVBIED) took place in front of the governor’s office in the downtown of Erbil. On April 2015, a SVBIED attack targeted the US consulate in Ainkawa. Since then, no major attacks took place in Erbil and the situation remains relatively stable. 

However, since the Kurdish Referendum of September 2017, regular demonstrations (peaceful until now) take place in the city to protest again political and economic situation.
