We work together, with our partners, to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.
We have over two million supporters worldwide and raised 1.9 billion dollars last year to reach more children than ever before, through programmes in health, nutrition, education, protection and child rights, also in times of humanitarian crises.
Following a major transition, our international programmes are now delivered through a merged operation with 15,000 staff, managed through seven regional hubs and reporting to a relatively small, central office. We’re changing to become more efficient, more aligned, a better partner, a stronger advocate, a magnet for world-class people and relevant for the 21st century.
The Social Protection Technical Specialist will ensure that all social protection programming is of excellent technical quality and attracts donor funding and contributes significantly to Save the Children’s strategic objectives, national/global learning and advocacy.
The main focus of the role is to provide technical advice in the design and implementation of social protection programmes (including cash transfers, vouchers/food assistance programmes, cash for work, etc.), ensuring child sensitive social protection programming, building technical capacity of Somalia/Somaliland government on social protection including supporting development of social protection policy and strategy, building learning and evidence from social protection programming and using it to inform advocacy to government, donors and other stakeholders. S/he will work collaboratively to develop relevant high quality project proposals that meet the needs of beneficiaries.
The Social Protection Specialists must be willing to embrace a child rights programming approach and represent Save the Children in national forums and technical working groups.
