Role Purpose
Save the Children seeks to build its capacity to implement Cash Transfer Programmes (CTP) throughout the East and Southern Africa (ESA) Regional Office to support its ability to respond rapidly to disasters but also to use CTP as a modality to deliver its recovery and long term programming.

The purpose of this position is to support design and operational implementation of humanitarian and development cash transfer programmes, to ensure their appropriateness, timely, accountable, donor-compliant and cost-effective delivery across the region.

The ESA region therefore seeks an experienced CTP Operations Advisor to provide remote and in-country technical support to CTP in the region to support their design, operational set up and ongoing delivery. This position will be based at the ESA in Nairobi, with extensive travel throughout the region (up to 50% of time). The position will report to the ESA Emergencies Director with a dotted line to Senior Cash Transfer Ops Advisor at SCI Centre.

In the event of a major humanitarian emergency, the role holder will be expected to work outside the normal role profile and be able to vary working hours accordingly.

We also campaign and advocate at the highest levels to realise the right of children and to ensure their voices are heard.
