Join the Technical Advisory Group (This is not a paid job – the TAG is a voluntary group.)

Deadline: 1 November 2020

Join the Technical Advisory Group

We are looking for new members to join the Technical Advisory Group (TAG). There several places available. The work of the TAG is voluntary. TAG Representatives must be from CaLP member organisations or an independent CaLP member.

About CaLP

CaLP is a dynamic global network of over 90 organisations engaged in the critical areas of policy, practice and research in humanitarian cash and voucher assistance (CVA) and financial assistance more broadly[1]. Collectively, CaLP members deliver the vast majority of humanitarian CVA worldwide. What makes CaLP unique is its diversity. Members currently include local and international non-governmental organisations, United Nations agencies, the Red Cross/Crescent Movement, donors, specialist social innovation, technology and financial services companies, researchers and academics, and individual practitioners. Together, and alongside our strategic partners, we seek to better meet the needs and improve the outcomes for women and men affected by crisis. To do this we ensure that CVA is a central, scalable component of quality, timely and appropriate humanitarian assistance, and that the need to sustain positive outcomes for people over the longer term is considered.

About the TAG

The TAG helps shape and steers CaLP’s technical and policy priorities within agreed strategic vision for the network. The TAG reviews and/or endorses key technical outputs, ensuring complementarities with related member initiatives. TAG Representatives are actively engaged in CaLP’s thematic priority initiatives and are also provided with opportunities to shape CaLP’s regional priorities. The TAG is made up of between 20 and 25 individuals from CaLP members who are able demonstrate, and leverage, a broad range of technical CVA expertise.

TAG Criteria

Applications will be assessed on the criteria, as set out in the TAG Terms of Reference.

  • Their organisation is a new member of CaLP.
  • Their organisation has not been represented on the TAG before, particularly National NGOs and Donors.
