Organization: British Red Cross
Country: Lebanon
Closing date: 05 Mar 2017

British Red Cross

Consultant, Response Options Framework

Refusing to ignore people in crisis

Beirut, Lebanon + home-based

34 days, April – June 2017

The Consultant will develop, test and refine a Response Options Framework to guide the Lebanese Red Cross (LRC) on when cash, in-kind, or a combination of the two would be the most appropriate response modality, in the context of Lebanon and within the capacities of the National Society.

This will involve working alongside LRC staff and volunteers to develop and pilot a set of tools and guidelines, to make sure that they are suitable for supporting operational decision making. The Response Options Framework will inform both LRC’s cash preparedness and contingency planning work, and its existing Syria Crisis response work.

The Lebanese Red Cross – most well-known for running the national ambulance service – formed a Disaster Management Unit (DMU) in late 2013. The DMU has a growing programme portfolio – including Basic Assistance (in-kind and cash), Water and Sanitation, and Disaster Risk Reduction programmes with a wide geographical reach across the country.

The British Red Cross has been working with the LRC DMU since late 2013, supporting the development of cash-based programming.

The ideal candidate will have a track record of delivering high quality consultancy work on time and according to pre-agreed terms of reference. They will have experience in project managing and providing technical support to high quality humanitarian response programmes, including both cash and in-kind programmes; strong quantitative and qualitative research skills; and excellent workshop planning and facilitation skills.

We are a volunteer-led humanitarian organisation that helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are. We enable vulnerable people at home and overseas to prepare for and respond to emergencies in their own communities. And when the crisis is over, we help people recover and move on with their lives.
