Head of Humanitarian Affairs
Base location could be London, Washington DC, New York or Geneva, depending on the right candidate
Save the Children is a global child rights organisation with a dual mandate to deliver world-class, quality programming in health, education and child protect and to be the leading INGO for children in emergencies.
Save the Children:
• reaches 50 million children every year
• raises $1.4 billion for children every year
• has 30 national organizations in North and South America, Europe, Africa and Asia
• works in more than 90 countries and has over 15,000 employees
Save the Children is the leading humanitarian response agency for children. We have a responsibility continuously to improve our ability to operate during man-made and natural disasters.
We are therefore creating a new function to ensure that we have the best possible advice and analysis about the operational contexts within which our humanitarian responses take place.
In particular we want to recruit someone with the talent and drive to create and then lead a new humanitarian intelligence function within Save the Children. The person recruited will be responsible for:
• Analysing risks and predicting the development and possible outcomes of acute and chronic humanitarian crises (both political and natural) wherever in the world they may happen.
• Providing advice and analysis on our response to specific events when they happen and in particular advising on our relations with key external actors.
• Identifying and advising on developing trends affecting the humanitarian industry
• Representing complex ideas and concepts to senior political and humanitarian leaders around the world.
The advice provided as a result of this work will have a real and immediate impact on our operational decisions across the world.
We need to keep children safe so our selection process reflects our commitment to the protection of children from abuse.
If you believe that you have the skills to fulfil this role, the confidence to provide clear advice in an uncertain environment and want to work as part of a dynamic and highly energetic leadership team then please go to our website at www.savethechildren.net/jobs and submit an application.
The closing date for applications is Thursday 12th July 2012.
