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 postholder 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 postholder 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.

In the event of a major humanitarian emergency, the role holder will be expected to work outside the normal role profile and be able to vary working hours accordingly.

This new specialism sits outside of any specific technical sector and is intended to support the programmatic design and implementation of cash and voucher interventions C&V covering all stages of the programme cycle, from the initial assessment of the appropriateness, operational feasibility and risks, to the  design of the intervention, the selection and implementation of a delivery mechanism and distribution process, and the monitoring. This role has both an operational and a programmatic/technical focus and is designed to support technical advisers to help meet programmatic objectives through cash transfers. Applicants with strong cash operational backgrounds and a reasonable understanding of all programmatic areas that are relevant to children’s survival, protection, and learning are therefore encouraged to apply to this position.

The Cash and Voucher Advisor within the Humanitarian Surge Team (HST) will generally be deployed as a field or head office level manager, to support the design, set up, and/or implementation and monitoring of Cash Transfer programmes in an emergency response. Line management will be either within the operations or the programme quality department, depending on the focus of the assignment (design or operational implementation).

They will be expected to advise on all aspects of designing, setting up,and/or managing and monitoring all operational areas (including budget development and management, agency coordination and representation, security, logistics, compliance with internal policies and procedures and management of teams) of cash transfer programming. These deployments may be as part of a team in a small or medium size response or in a complex, large scale emergency. In all deployments, the post holder will play a key role in building capacity at field level, and in the effective scale up and management of Save the Children emergency programmes to increase impact and enable positive change for children.

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.
