    Switzerland: Traineeship in the Economic Security Unit

     FULL TIME, Ingenieria Quimica  Comments Off on Switzerland: Traineeship in the Economic Security Unit
    Jun 152018
     

    Organization: International Committee of the Red Cross
    Country: Switzerland
    Closing date: 26 Jun 2018

    Reports to (role)

    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.

    Purpose

    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.

    Accountabilities & Functional responsibilities

    • Accountability to the Affected Populations (AAP): In close collaboration with the Economic Security file holder, the post holder will attend and contribute to the meetings of the ICRC Working Group on AAP, participate in the in-house mainstreaming exercise and write an annual report on the AAP practices within EcoSec.
    • Technology and Innovation: The post holder will provide business support to the field for mobile device based data collection, electronic distribution management systems and personal data protection procedures.
    • Capacity Building: In the past few years, the unit’s training needs worldwide have increased. The post holder will support the Capacity Building Manager in various tasks, including training evaluations and monitoring, the production of quarterly training statistics and the creation of an individual training database.
    • Collaborative spaces: The unit has multiple communication and collaborative platforms: the EcoSec Resource Centre regrouping reference resources on a Wiki; a quarterly newsletter updating EcoSec staff worldwide on new publications and interesting information from the field and headquarters; an EcoSec Community of Practice where the EcoSec staff can share and exchange knowledge. The post holder will be involved in the production and management of content and in charge of updates.
    • Nutrition: In collaboration with the nutritionists, the post holder will contribute to a desk review of the nutrition-related cash transfer programs and will help document existing examples. In parallel, the Associate will be involved in the review of the Nutrition in Detention training content.
    • EcoSec Programme Management Tool: Since 2010, EcoSec has used the EcoSec Programme Management Tool (EPMT) to manage and keep track of operations and to facilitate reporting. It undergoes updates on a regular basis and therefore requires testing before the launch of each new version. The post holder will be working with the Head of Project and will provide support to the reporting team.
    • Cash Transfer Programming: Cash as a modality has grown in the ICRC, requiring assistance in the reporting and mainstreaming within the institution. The Post holder will work with the cash specialists on the various upcoming activities such as drafting annual reports.
    • Micro Economic Initiative (MEI): Best practices, results and data for this successful income generating intervention have recently been regrouped into a toolkit to facilitate the programming and implementation. The Associate will provide support to the EcoSec file holder (e.g. compilation and update of a standard database, design of survey questionnaires on Device Magic).
