Global Surge Team Roster: Cash Technical Advisor

Deadline: 30 June 2023

Organisation: IRC


The IRC’s Global Surge Team (GST) is a roster of esteemed and highly qualified humanitarian professionals who deploy on short notice to non-emergency and emergency contexts to support the IRC’s mission. Members of the GST provide specialist support where talent is most needed for short-term deployments of up to three months. The GST is a flexible employment opportunity for staff, requiring members to be available for deployments only 50% of the year (with opportunities for additional deployments if incumbent is interested).

The Cash Technical Advisor (TA), when deployed, will provide technical support in the design and development of cash and voucher assistance (CVA) activities in support of ERD programs to ensure the most appropriate, effective, and safe delivery of assistance for affected populations. The position will also support, and lead select global and country-led initiatives to support the scale-up of CVA activities across the IRC’s strategic CVA ambitions. The selected candidate should also have familiarity with the operational aspects of CVA, including supply chain and finance; as well as with supporting social protection systems in fragile contexts.

The role will be directly supported by the Economic Recovery and Development Technical Unit at the IRC. The unit leads the IRC’s cash and voucher assistance, rural & agricultural livelihoods, and enterprise and employment promotion programming, amongst other program models and research projects.
