International Medical Corps is a global humanitarian nonprofit organization dedicated to saving lives and relieving suffering through health care training and relief and development programs. Established in 1984 by volunteer doctors and nurses, International Medical Corps is a private, voluntary, nonpolitical, nonsectarian organization. Its mission is to improve the quality of life through health interventions and related activities that build local capacity in areas worldwide.

BackgroundSince the outbreak of war in Libya in early 2011, the country has faced ongoing economic and political instability, and fighting between violent militias. Shortly after conflict broke out, International Medical Corps immediately deployed teams to Libya to provide country-wide emergency medical services, train health workers and deliver vital medicines and supplies.Today, continued armed conflict and political instability have impacted over three million people and hindered their access to basic services, safety and security. International Medical Corps is still one of the few international organizations that has supported conflict-affected populations in Libya and among three organizations that has relocated expatriate personnel back to Libya since fighting escalated in 2014. Current program activities are supporting some of the country’s most vulnerable populations—including internally displaced persons (IDPs), refugees and asylum seekers—and providing relief to Libya’s fractured health system.Job PurposeThe Country Director is directly responsible for the overall strategic planning, human resources, program design and implementation, program support operations, finance, administration, monitoring and evaluation supervision, expansion/development, and required reporting for the country program
