Overview :

Dear Sir/Madam,

The Crisis Bureau is responsible for managing deployments for crisis response, recovery and preparedness through the SURGE and ExpRes rosters. The deployment of technical and operations experts through the SURGE (UNDP Staff), ExpRes (Consultants), and Standby Partnerships mechanisms are a key component of UNDP’s response to the immediate crisis and technical support to Country Offices. This deployment mechanism will also go onto support the Global Policy Network (GPN) and incorporate areas of UNDP’s work outside of crisis response, recovery and preparedness.

The Experts Roster for Rapid Response (ExpRes) is a recruitment and deployment mechanism which maintains pre-vetted consultants on a roster and contracts them quickly for country office support.  The primary purpose of this roster has been to deploy Crisis Prevention and Recovery (CPR) technical experts to UNDP Country Offices on short notice in the aftermath of a crisis and for CPR Programming.

The UNDP is looking for an individual consultant who, under the supervision of the Programme Specialist (Deployments),  will support the effective and efficient functioning of the Crisis Bureau’s deployment mechanisms and maintain the various rosters in coordination with Crisis Bureau’s Crisis Coordination teams in support of the selection, recruitment, deployment and support of field personnel in emergency situations. The Programme Specialist will also support the Rapid Response and Preparedness Team in developing existing and new partnerships with the Stand by Partners Finally, the Crisis Response and Deployments Consultant will provide support to a range of RRPT processes, including knowledge management, reporting, capacity building, coordination and operations.
