Food Security and Livelihoods Technical Specialist
Save the Children is the world’s leading independent organisation for children. We work in 120 countries. We save children’s lives ; we fight for their rights ; we help them fulfil their potential.
We work together, with our partners, to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.
We have over two million supporters worldwide and raised 1.9 billion dollars last year to reach more children than ever before, through programmes in health, nutrition, education, protection and child rights, also in times of humanitarian crises.
Following a major transition, our international programmes are now delivered through a merged operation with 15,000 staff, managed through seven regional hubs and reporting to a relatively small, central office. We’re changing to become more efficient, more aligned, a better partner, a stronger advocate, a magnet for world-class people and relevant for the 21st century.
Role Purpose :
The Food Security and Livelihoods (FSL) Technical Advisor will ensure that all FSL programming is of excellent technical quality, attracts significant donor funding and contributes significantly to Save the Children’s strategic objectives, national/global learning and advocacy. At present, the major focus of our FSL work is humanitarian, to address the ongoing hunger crisis in South Sudan. The FSL Advisor is expected to work collaboratively to develop high-quality FSL proposals that meet the needs of targeted beneficiary populations, provide technical advice and support to project staff to ensure programming objectives are successfully achieved. He/she shall also contribute to achieving high program quality through evidence-based work, and/or leading new research around FSL (including cash transfer) programming. The FSL Advisor must be willing to embrace a child rights programming approach and represent Save the Children in national forums and working groups.
