To respond effectively and rapidly to major emergencies anywhere in the world, and enable communities to become more resilient to future shocks and stresses. As a Humanitarian Support Personnel (HSP) you will be a member of a large, dynamic, experienced, multi-sector team of first-class specialists. The team spans a variety of technical humanitarian fields including emergency food security and vulnerable livelihoods (EFSVL), WASH, Protection, Gender, Policy, MEAL (monitoring, evaluation, accountability, and learning) and support roles including ICT, logistics, and finance. HSPs are deployed from their home base to a variety of roles in regional and country programmes from a few weeks to up to approximately 6 months.
This is a cross-cutting role designed to work alongside technical advisory teams (WASH, EFSVL, Protection, MEAL and Cash) in supporting field programmes to utilise ICTs across a range of humanitarian programme activities. Key areas of work include identifying needs, scoping and setting up processes, utilising both new digital tools and a set of standard tools in the ICT in Programme portfolio to deliver programme activities. These might range from assessments, mapping (simple maps and topographical surveys to inform for example WASH infrastructure design and implementation), registrations, monitoring and delivery of aid to improving Oxfam’s accountability to beneficiaries. The role seeks to ensure that activities incorporating the use of ICTs consider gender equity and vulnerability issues, are carried out in a way that aligns with Oxfam’s Responsible Data Policy and are sensitive to conflict and protection needs, in order to reduce risks and threats to beneficiaries.
The prime purpose of this flexible resource will be to assist management in ensuring the essentials of humanitarian programme quality drawing on the use of ICTs are considered, prioritised and resourced in programme set-up, development and learning processes & systems. The post holder would be expected to spend up to 70% of time on deployments.
