Save the Children’s origins lie in emergency response, and this has remained central to our work ever since. Our approach integrates our emergency and development work, through the medium of our country programmes. With the increasing frequency and severity of emergencies world-wide the organisation is increasing its capacity to support programmes in both sudden onset and chronic emergency situations. Our Emergency Response Personnel (ERP) play a key part with Save the Children’s humanitarian strategy. Members of the ERP scheme are active members of Save the Children’s UK’s humanitarian department, and contribute to organisational learning and help build organisation capacity to respond effectively to emergencies world-wide.
Our Emergency Response Personnel are usually deployed for medium-term assignments for:
- An emergency response where Save the Children is scaling up and we need immediate emergency expertise
- Surge capacity to a country programme by either filling a vacant position and/or adding further skills and experience to country programmes
- Capacity building of individuals and/or country programmes to ensure that programmes are being run effectively
An ERP Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability & Learning (MEAL) Adviser will generally be deployed as a field level technical coordinator in a medium or large scale emergency or as the lead technical Adviser in a medium or large scale emergency, with support from head office. Alternatively they may be deployed as a field level or lead technical coordinator in a complex, large-scale emergency. On occasion they may also be asked to gap fill a senior technical Advisery role in a chronic humanitarian country programme. The ERP MEAL Adviser will be expected to lead on MEAL system design and implementation, evaluations, MEAL budgeting, recruitment as well as support proposal writing and logframe development usually at national level. In most circumstances, the postholder will be expected to mentor and/or capacity building existing country programme staff.
