INSO Administration NGO Jobs in Kenya

Founded in 2011, the International NGO Safety Organisation (INSO) is a British charity that supports the safety of aid workers by establishing safety coordination platforms in insecure contexts.

INSO provides registered NGOs with a range of free services including real-time incident tracking, analytical reports, safety related data and mapping, crisis management support, staff orientations and training.

INSO services help NGOs with their day-to-day risk management responsibilities and improve their overall situational awareness to support evidence-based humanitarian access decisions.

The Organisation has grown from innovative start-up to become a globally recognised charity and a highly valued component in the humanitarian safety coordination system.

The strong focus on humanitarian principles and exclusive NGO-only membership criteria have meant that INSO is now accepted as a standard component of modern humanitarian response offering independent frontline reporting and coordination services that save lives, strengthen operational practice and enable humanitarian access.

Today the organisation provides daily support to more than 1000 NGOs in eleven of the world’s most insecure countries and has earned a strong reputation for performance, principles & professionalism.

INSO established a presence in Kenya in 2012 and launched full services in the same year. INSO Kenya provides services to enhance the delivery of aid and preserve the safety of staff employed by Kenyan NGO’s and International NGOs that provide humanitarian and emergency assistance to people living in Kenya. INSO continues these essential services and operates from a position of neutrality
