Overview :

Dear Sir/Madam,

The Crisis Bureau (CB) is responsible for UNDP’s corporate crisis response strategy and capability. It develops and drives UNDP’s vision and priorities for crisis response, coordinates and facilitates UNDP’s crisis response with a whole-of-UNDP approach, provides oversight for all UNDP crisis response actions and ensures high quality engagement of the organization in crisis in general. The responsibility of CB focuses primarily upon and is confined to the two specific typologies of crisis listed below, to which CB provides support for limited duration:

•             Sudden onset crisis: This would include countries that have been affected by natural disasters or sudden outbreak of armed conflicts;

•             Complex protracted crisis: Examples include countries that are impacted by protracted conflicts, often with regional implications.

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 Crisis Bureau is looking for a consultant who, under the overall supervision of the Team Leader, Rapid Response and Preparedness Team, and the day to day management of the Programme Specialist (Deployments), will be responsible for the effective and efficient functioning of the ICT aspects of the CB’s Deployment mechanisms, support region specific deployments and maintain the various rosters in coordination with the UNDPs Bureau's, Country Offices and hubs in support of the selection, recruitment, deployment and support of field personnel in emergency situations.
