Decisive fight for supremacy in Idlib may cause humanitarian catastrophe
Intensification in conflict could also lead to another refugee crisis
Tuesday’s chemical attack in Syria has highlighted the vulnerability of more than 1.5 million people in the Syrian province of Idlib, who could soon find themselves at the mercy of a vicious final battle in Syria’s all-consuming six-year war, according to GOAL.
Oxfam Ireland is entering formal discussions with GOAL on a potential merger that, if successful, will see the organisations coming together under the name Oxfam GOAL, to create a global development agency based in Ireland.

Reporting to: Strategic Partnerships Manager
General Description of the Programme
GOAL’s Strategic Partnerships team identifies, develops and manages high value opportunities to work with others to further GOAL’s organisational objective of reducing extreme poverty and strengthening resilience. Through pro-active engagement with an array of global partners, such as donors (institutional and large foundations), international NGOs and commercial entities, the team aims to maximise GOAL’s funding diversification.
This is a part-time position and will involve working hours of 16 hours per week for a total of 48 weeks. The primary function of this role is to be a member of GOAL’s Dublin based senior security management team and provide security advice and support within GOAL’s Head Office in Dublin and to overseas operations with the aim of ensuring that GOAL adheres to best practice in the areas of safety, security and risk management.
Overall Objectives of the position:
GOAL has been delivering both humanitarian and development programmes in South Sudan since 1985. Traditionally GOAL South Sudan has operated in three field sites; Twic County, Warrap State; Agok in the Abyei Administrative Area and in the Sobat Corridor, Upper Nile State. GOAL directly implements a multi-sectoral programme addressing the root causes of poverty and poor health, and has historically responded to a number of emergencies. In December 2013, conflict broke out, and this impacted all of GOAL’s operations, though most noticeably in Upper Nile State, where fighting continues.
