Student Assistant Civil Society Engagement Unit

Dansk Flygtningehjælp

DRC is a non-profit organisation that works worldwide to help and protect refugees, internally displaced and other conflict-affected persons. DRC’s Civil Society Engagement unit is looking for a student assistant who will focus on supporting the financial side of a grant making mechanism within the Diaspora Project Support (DiPS).


The Civil Society Engagement Unit provides strategic, analytical and operation support to engagement with relevant local, regional and transnational civil society across DRC operations; implements Civil Society Engagement projects of a global nature; and spearheads DRC's long-standing engagement with diaspora communities across Europe. Danish Refugee Council’s Diaspora Programme facilitates, supports, and enhances the role of diasporas as effective agents of humanitarian assistance, recovery and development. The work of the Diaspora Programme supports Danish Refugee Council’s conviction that displaced people are a resource for both countries of origin and destination and responds to a growing body of evidence calling for a more inclusive humanitarian system that integrates ‘non-traditional actors’ to enhance the effectiveness of the humanitarian response.

DiPS is a Danida-funded project providing financial and technical support to diaspora-led projects implemented in Somalia and Afghanistan. DiPS offers provisions of funding for diaspora-led relief, rehabilitation and development projects as well as trainings to strengthen the diaspora organisations’ capacity.

About the position

The DiPS student assistant will mainly provide administrative support to the implementation of the Diaspora Project Support (DiPS) project. Specifically, this includes supporting the financial side of the grants mechanism by checking financial reports submitted by diaspora grantees. The student assistant is also expected to provide support to the Annual Grand Meeting taking place in the fall of 2021 and general communications activities to a Danish diaspora network. Ad-hoc support to the unit and other projects is expected.

The tasks will include, but not be limited to:

Supporting the grants mechanism:

  • Support DiPS colleagues with checking financial reports submitted by diaspora organisations that have received funding from the DiPS grant mechanism according to set guidelines. This includes making sure that all supporting documents are received and acceptable.
  • Back-and-forth collaboration with DiPS grantees about their financial reports at both the midterm and the final stage of project implementation.
  • Support diaspora organisations with financial questions to DiPS formats and guidelines.
  • Close collaboration with the DiPS colleagues including field officers in Somalia and Afghanistan.
  • Support with developing or improving financial procedures, guidelines, and training materials.
  • Process financial reimbursements.
  • Support the DiPS team with daily ad-hoc tasks related to finance, admin and logistics.

Support DiPS with event planning and communications:

  • Support with administrative issues in relation to the Annual Grand Meeting to be held in the fall of 2021, which includes arranging the election of Advisory Board members, mobilizing Danish diaspora members, liaising with the venue providers, registration and other administrative follow-up.
  • Support with increasing the visibility of smaller events and workshops by preparing, posting, and disseminating notices through different media platforms i.e. DRC’s website, newsletters, Facebook, and SMS services.
  • Support the representation and visibility of the Diaspora Programme/projects (storytelling) with relevant communication materials.
  • Support the DiPS team with various ad-hoc communications tasks to diaspora representatives.
