The role: Education Cluster Coordinator – Humanitarian Surge Team (HST)


As part of our humanitarian ambition and 2030 global strategy, Save the Children is developing and implementing a new Surge Capacity Model to further improve the efficient deployment of high quality surge staff to support the delivery of our Humanitarian Responses directly and in collaboration with SCI partners. The model will be a stimulus for other areas of the organisation, demonstrating more collaborative and cost effective ways of working to
drive resources closer to children and honour our commitments to sector wide developments including the Grand Bargain and Core Humanitarian Standard.

People surge is a vital component of our humanitarian responses, providing a much-needed expertise and capacity which can be called upon when it is needed most, helping to ensure high quality and timely humanitarian responses and ultimately saving the lives of children and their families. The post holder will provide dedicated surge support for all categories of humanitarian response efforts, interim cover for critical roles and capacity building to country
and regional office staff and SCI partners within humanitarian contexts around the globe.
When not on deployment the post holder will undertake work at the base location agreed with their subject matter line manager and deployment manager and contribute to the further development of the surge capacity model.

The Education Cluster Coordinator is to ensure a coherent and effective response to education needs being addressed by agencies engaging in Education interventions, as required by the activation of the United Nations Cluster System. The Education Cluster Coordinator will lead this initiative by working closely with the education stakeholders (children, families, communities, authorities, education institutions and INGOs and UN agencies) to provide an effective, timely and strategic collective response to the current situation.

The Education Cluster Coordinator will work impartially, serving the needs of all members of the Education Cluster, and should work closely with coordination staff from our co-lead (UNICEF), UN OCHA, and other country cluster coordinators. The education cluster is accountable to the Humanitarian Country Team and Humanitarian Coordinators through the lead agencies (Save the Children and UNICEF).

Depending on the scale of the emergency it may be necessary to facilitate the set-up of clusters at sub-national level and to work with/supervise dedicated information management staff.

Qualifications and experience



  • Prior experience in cluster coordination (senior management of Education in Emergency (EiE) programmes may be considered a substitute)
  •  Previous first phase emergency response experience is essential
  • Understanding of the Humanitarian Program Cycle including experience with Humanitarian Response Planning and/or Humanitarian Needs Overview
  •  Education to MSc/MA/MEng level in Education (or a related field) or equivalent field experience with EiE
  •  Excellent communication skills, including ability to facilitate diverse groups
  •  Politically and culturally sensitive with qualities of patience, tact and diplomacy
  • Demonstrable ability to work and represent views across different stakeholders taking part in the Education Cluster
  • Experience of high level co-ordination and chairing of meetings
  • Demonstrable understanding of international humanitarian response and co- ordination mechanisms
  •  Understanding of opportunities to provide integrated or cross-cutting humanitarian interventions with other sectors and Clusters
  • Experience of applying relevant interagency humanitarian frameworks and standards in education in emergencies (for example INEE Minimum Standards)
  • The capacity and willingness to be extremely flexible and accommodating in difficult and sometimes insecure working circumstances.
  • Fluent in English and another language: either French, Spanish, Portuguese or Arabic


  • Strong information management skills
  •  Strong influencing skills and experience in advocacy
  •  Experience or knowledge of working and living in relevant regions/contexts

In the case of a Category 1 and in some cases, Category 2 response, the candidate should reflect the experience and qualifications of a Grade 2. This must include the following proven experience:

  • Education Cluster Coordinator in complex humanitarian response
  • Representation of the Cluster in high-level forums (i.e. Humanitarian Country Team)
  • Managing or being part of a multi-agency Cluster team
  • Working directly with leadership in a government line-ministry/department
  • Development of a multi-agency, humanitarian strategy/response plan.

The Organisation

We employ approximately 25,000 people across the globe and work on the ground in over 100 countries to help children affected by crises, or those that need better healthcare, education and child protection. We also campaign and advocate at the highest levels to realise the right of children and to ensure their voices are heard.

We are working towards three breakthroughs in how the world treats children by 2030:

  •  No child dies from preventable causes before their 5th birthday
  •  All children learn from a quality basic education and that,
  • Violence against children is no longer tolerated

We know that great people make a great organization, and that our employees play a crucial role in helping us achieve our ambitions for children. We value our people and offer a meaningful and rewarding career, along with a collaborative and inclusive workplace where ambition, creativity, and integrity are highly valued.
