We are looking for a Humanitarian Nutrition Adviser for our external roster who can be rapidly deployed or undertake technical consultancies, when the need arises and the capacity of the current team is exceeded.

Save the Children’s origins lie in emergency response. The Emergency Health Unit (EHU) is an operational team deployed to support the Save the Children Humanitarian Health, Nutrition, HIV and WASH Strategy in providing and improving humanitarian responses. The EHU holds a pre-standing emergency health capacity to deploy in the event of a major disaster, diseases outbreak or conflict that affects population health and they will be set up within 72 hours of the disaster or identified emergency.

Save the Children’s Emergency Health Unit is currently enlisting candidates for their humanitarian emergency roster to safeguard strong external health and operational support surge capacity when our emergency responses require it. As a member of our roster you will only be deployed when gaps are identified in our responses and depending on the nature of the response you may be asked to deploy at short notice, often to insecure environments.

To become part of the external roster as a Humanitarian Nutrition Adviser you will have experience working in a range of emergency response contexts or fragile states and experience of working with nutrition cluster coordination mechanisms in country. In addition you will:

Be a health professional with a Masters in Public Health or Public Health Nutrition or have equivalent field experience
Have previous experience of managing a team at national level
The ability to work both in an advisory and a hands-on implementation capacity
Have experience of preparing successful funding proposals for donors
The capacity and willingness to be extremely flexible and accommodating in difficult and sometimes insecure working circumstances.
The roster does not automatically translate to a paid role as it is dependent on the scale of our response and the availability of the roster members. Deployments with Save the Children are paid, unless specifically identified as a volunteer role.
