United Nations World Food Programme Job Portal

Every day, WFP works worldwide to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry and that the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access the nutritious food they need.

We are recruiting to fill the following positions below:

1. Job Title: Procurement Officer, P4

Requisition #: 124304
Locations: Abuja, Nigeria; Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC)
Slot: 2 Openings

Organizational Context

  • This job is found in Headquarters (HQ), Regional Bureaux (RBs) or Country Officers (COs). Job holders report to the Regional/Country/Division Deputy Director or the designate. Job holders are likely to operate in an environment where the complexity of managing procurement operations is high e.g. involving high value/volume, or a range of procurement needs such as cash and vouchers, small holder farmer procurement, local, regional and international procurement, and production and procurement of special nutritious foods.

Abuja, Nigeria Country Context

  • Nigeria is a federal constitutional republic. It is the most populous country in Africa and the seventh most populous country in the world. Nigeria has over 500 ethnic groups. The crisis-induced by non-state armed groups remains the principal driving factor of instability in northeast Nigeria. Since 2010, they have increasingly expanded their operational capabilities. In May 2013 a state of emergency was declared by the Government in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe States.
  • WFP Nigeria is a relatively new Country Office having been established in 2016. There are approximately 2 million internally displaced persons (IDPs) reported to be in Nigeria (IOM/DTM Round 27), of which the majority are in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe States. The June 2019 Cadre Harmonisé (CH) reports nearly 3 million people in need of food assistance in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe States. WFP operations focus on crisis response to prevent deterioration of food and nutrition security, reduce malnutrition and minimize gender inequalities. WFP activities are concentrated in rural areas of north-eastern Nigeria that are more vulnerable and food insecure.

Kinshasa, DRC Country Context

  • DRC, the second-largest country in Africa and a low-income country, is ranked fifth out of 178 countries on the 2019 Fragile States Index, placing it in the highest category of risk. The country is currently the second-largest hunger crisis in the world after Yemen. Hunger and conflict fuel one another, with armed conflict and widespread displacement prevailing for the past 25 years, and multiple crises compounding DRC’s humanitarian challenges. The already high prevalence of food insecurity and malnutrition across the country further increased in 2019. According to the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) of August 2019, 15.6 million people, representing 26 percent of the rural population analyzed, were facing a crisis (IPC phase 3) and emergency (IPC phase 4) acute food insecurity.
  • Procurement is an integral part of the support required by the DRC country office operations. During 2019, local procurement amounted to approximately USD 90 million, of which goods and services (G&S) procurement was 28 percent (USD 26.8 M). The operations require a strengthened and structured planning process, an up-to-date vendor roster with a comprehensive market analysis, and ensure all corporate procedures, guidelines, systems and reporting are fully implemented and monitored. These will allow to maximise economies of scale in sourcing, minimise transaction costs, and ensure efficient use of resources.
