Cash and Markets Specialist at the British Red Cross

Posted on Fri 14th Jul, 2017 - --- (0 comments)

The British Red Cross helps millions of people in the UK and around the world to prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies, disasters and conflicts. Our volunteers and staff help people in crisis to live independently by providing support at home, mobility aids and transport. We also teach first aid skills. We are part of the global Red Cross and Red Crescent humanitarian network. We refuse to ignore people in crisis. 

British Red Cross (BRC) in partnership with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is currently looking for an experienced candidate to work within the ICRC delegation in Abuja, Nigeria, to fill the position below:

Job Title: Cash and Markets Specialist

Role reference: REQ0000014GZ
Location: Abuja, Nigeria
Function: Cash and Markets Specialist - NRCS/NEMA Cash Preparedness Delegate
Proposed length of assignment: 3 months

  • There is an increased use of cash transfer programming (CTP) in humanitarian response; and it is widely recognized that cash transfers and vouchers can be appropriate and effective tools to support populations affected by disasters in a way that maintains dignity and choice for beneficiaries while stimulating local livelihoods, economies and markets.
  • The RCRC Movement has a long history of using cash transfer programming (CTP) in disaster and armed-conflict response and it’s recognized that adequate preparedness and organisational institutionalisation of CTP are critical pre-requisites for an organisation to rapidly deliver cash. ICRC and other Movement partners are therefore increasingly working together to improve the cash preparedness of key national societies in disaster and armed-conflict response prone countries and a CTP in emergencies framework has been developed, including guidance for key CTP preparedness measures to be in place before disaster or conflict strikes.
  • Nigeria Red Crescent Society (NRCS) is a long-term partner of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). The NRCS is a frontline organization in humanitarian response and a member of the National Emergency management Agency (NEMA). The NRCS and NEMA respond to sudden onset natural disasters and armed conflict, including distribution of relief items and livelihood support after the floods in many parts of Nigeria and the humanitarian action in conflict affected areas in the north-east.
  • NRCS has implemented a limited number of cash based interventions with the support from ICRC, Total, Japanese Government and other Movement partners. These have almost exclusively been targeting small number of households. On the other hand, NEMA has capacity to and mandate to deliver large scale humanitarian response to disasters at the National level, but has limited experience in CTP.
  • Both NRCS and NEMA have requested the ICRC for capacity building assistance to enable them to acquire the skills that would allow them to deliver cash based assistance in future.
  • The NRCS/NEMA CTP preparedness will form part of on-going capacity building programme where the ICRC is trying to transfer skills and capacities to the local institutions that are expected to assume responsibility for humanitarian interventions in areas where civilians are affected by other situations of violence or natural disasters.
  • Under the supervision of the EcoSec Coordinator, the Cash and Markets Specialist is responsible for providing technical support for the design and initial activities of the Cash Preparedness Project in Nigeria.
  • The CTP Advisor will support the CTP focal points at the Nigeria Red Cross Society (NRCS) and the National Emergency Management Authority (NEMA).

  • Facilitate the CTP preparedness gap analysis of NRCS and NEMA using the NS selfassessment tool to gather information on 1) enabling systems, 2) programme tools, 3) resources and capacities, as well as 4) communication and coordination and identify the gaps and the areas the need to be developed/strengthened.
  • Support the NS and NEMA to define possible disaster scenarios and the use of cash in relation to these. Link up with NRCS and NEMA contingency planning process in order to ensure maximum integration.
  • Support the CTP focal points identified at NRCS and NEMA headquarters in the development of the Plan of Action. Lead the participatory workshop to develop project description with Log-frame, the PoA and related budget.
