Introduction

Humanitarian Leadership Development Programme Trainee Scheme March 2011 – March 2012

The Humanitarian Leadership Development Programme is a unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience in international humanitarian programmes. This one year scheme is designed to enable participants to develop the necessary skills in order to launch a career in operational management in emergencies with one of the 15 members of the Consortium of British Humanitarian Agencies (CBHA) or another leading international agency in the Humanitarian Sector.
How does it work? As a trainee, you will undertake two 6 month placements with one of the 15 CBHA members (see list below). The first placement is a training placement based at an agency’s HQ, during which you will get on the job training in various aspects of humanitarian operations as well as completing 2 separate simulation-based training exercises. In the second 6 month placement you will be deployed to one of the agencies’ field programmes in either an emergency or post emergency context, often in challenging and insecure environments. You will train with humanitarian professionals who will act as your coaches to facilitate the development of the skills required for operational management work in emergencies.
Who are we looking for? We are looking for talented people committed to long-term service in the humanitarian sector, who can demonstrate outstanding people skills and the motivation to develop humanitarian leadership skills. Ideally, applicants will have some field experience and must have a permit to work in the UK until the end of September 2011.
How do you apply?
Please apply via the website: www.savethechildren.org.uk/en/jobs.htm, job reference number 6107
The closing date for applications is Monday 3rd January 2011 at midnight UK time.
