Annelies Ollieuz, Senior RRT Education Cluster Coordinator with NORCAP, has left the team early August. After a well-deserved break, she will join the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) as Global Education Advisor.
During her four years with the Rapid Response Team, Annelies has provided extended support to country, including Nigeria, Jordan, Syria, South Sudan, Liberia, Nepal, Ethiopia and Iraq, through deployment and remote support. At global level, she extensively contributed to the developments of key tools such as the Core Skills training and the Toolkit. As senior RRT member, she managed the RRTs’ deployments and individually followed up with country clusters/working groups which requested support. Annelies also took on a lot of management tasks during the transition until the new Global Coordinators were appointed.
With her expertise and positive attitude, Annelies has been a joy to work with. She will be dearly missed. We wish her all the best of luck in her new position with NRC and hope she will remain in the Cluster family.
