Global Nutrition Cluster Coordinator
Nutrition Cluster/Sector Coordinators at country level the GNC Coordination Team (GNC-CT)
For a period of 11.5 months, from 01September 2018
Background and Justification
At a global level, the Global Nutrition Cluster (GNC) led by UNICEF has made significant progress since 2006 in bringing together nutrition partners to support a coherent emergency response. Operational support for effective cluster coordination is at the core of the GNC’s strategic priorities, and from 2010 to date, over 36 cluster/sector countries have benefited from this support.
In 2014, the GNC conducted an evaluation of its support to national nutrition coordination platforms which was completed in January 2015. Amongst the major recommendations proposed was the development of an operational support plan for the GNC-CT to engage and support national clusters in a systemic manner. This evaluation further confirmed the need for a dedicated remote support function to rapidly resolve coordination, IM and technical issues. Drawing on the recommendations of the evaluation, in June 2015, the GNC-CT established a GNC Help Desk that provided systematic and routine support to all field based coordinators and IMOs. The strategic relevance of this support was also articulated in the 2014-2016 GNC strategy, and currently, the GNC Strategic Priority number 1 within the 2017-2020 Strategy and the 2017-2018 workplan has also maintained this as one of the priorities of the global partnership.
Upon establishment, the GNC-CT and the HelpDesk established a list of 36 countries with sector and cluster coordination structures to provide coordination support. During the period of 2015-2017, the HelpDesk provided the following support: induction and mentoring of newly appointed nutrition cluster/sector coordinators (NCCs) and rapid response team (RRT) members (9 persons), organization of remote orientation sessions on cluster approach for partners (129 persons trained), support to CCPM exercise (17 countries), support to HNO and HRP development (17 countries) and ad hoc support regarding cluster/sector coordination concerns (31 countries who have received from one time/easy to solve to more extensive supports). The HelpDesk has also maintained a close contact with country cluster coordinators and information management officers (IMOs) through the organization of 11 monthly NCC calls, with an average of 13 participants from different countries per call. All activities undertaken and concerns observed during the HelpDesk support to countries were shared each month with the GNC-CT through the submission of monthly reports and attendance to all relevant calls at global level. The cluster coordinators and IMOs at country level greatly supported the establishment of the HelpDesk and during the 2015 GNC Annual Meeting expressed their desire to continue with such services. The consultant will continue to maintain the GNC HelpDesk services to the country clusters/sectors and will draw on pre-existing relationships between the GNC-CT and nutrition cluster coordination teams.
Objectives and Activities:
The purpose of this consultancy is to strengthen the capacity of Nutrition in Emergency clusters/sector coordination mechanisms at the country level to develop and deliver quality, predictable, timely, effective and integrated nutrition responses through provision of quality cluster/sector coordination-related support, mentoring and training. The following expected results include details on tasks to be undertaken, although given the evolving nature of this work, the tasks and deliverables outlined below could be modified or added to based on mutual agreement.
Required qualifications and competencies:
The consultancy is home-based, preferably in Geneva or nearby areas. It is envisaged that the consultant will start work on 01September 2018 for a period of 11.5 months full time 20-22 working days a month depending on the availability of funds. Payments are to be scheduled on a monthly basis.
Travel and Insurance
This consultancy is home-based and involves two to three travels to Geneva and location where GNC Annual Meetings will take place (dates to be determined). All travel expenses will be paid by UNICEF. The consultant will travel by the most direct and economical route in economy class. UNICEF will pay the daily subsistence allowance as per UN-approved rate. The consultant must be fit to travel, be in a possession of the valid UN DSS Basic and Advanced Security certificates, obligatory inoculation(s) and have a valid own travel/medical insurance and an immunization/vaccination card. The dates for the travel will be determined in consultation with GNC-CT.
Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted and advance to the next stage of the selection process. Please include a letter of interest, including your approach to the assignment and proposed monthly fee in US dollars. Applications without a proposed monthly fee will not be considered.

Deputy Head of EcoSec Unit
What we do
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) works worldwide to provide humanitarian assistance to people affected by conflict and armed violence. We take action in response to emergencies and at the same time promote respect for international humanitarian law. We are an independent and neutral organization, and our mandate stems essentially from the Geneva Conventions of 1949. We work closely with National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and with their International Federation in order to ensure a concerted, rational and rapid humanitarian response to the needs of the victims of armed conflict or any other situation of internal violence. We direct and coordinate the international activities conducted in these situations.
Within its global Economic Security (EcoSec) approach in conflict affected countries, the ICRC implements Relief, Livelihood, and Structural Support Programs in order to improve, restore or maintain food- and economic security at the household level. The EcoSec programs of the ICRC are multifaceted, bear different modes of intervention and aim at assisting victims in a timely and flexible way to meet their essential needs and expenditures in a sustainable and dignified way. Among the interventions are provision of emergency food and non-food items; nutrition programs; agricultural and veterinary/livestock related activities; as well as income generating projects. Modalities include provision of assistance, cash and vouchers and access to services.
The post holder will collaborate with the Economic Security Unit staff in order to i) support the development of institutional files, ii) update internal communication tools, iii) produce statistical compilations, analysis and visualizations, and iv) provide business support to technological applications.
Throughout the year, the post holder will receive technical guidance from experienced staff of the Unit, including Focal Points for different thematic and operational topics and will have the opportunity to acquire both practical and theoretical knowledge in food and economic security, with significant scope for developing new and innovative files.
