CARE Food Security and Nutrition Roster for Emergency Deployment

Post date Monday, 9 February, 2015 - 11:08

CARE USA, recruiting on behalf of CARE International, is seeking experienced and motivated people to join its Food Security and Nutrition emergency response roster.  As part of the emergency response roster you will be called up for short term deployments in humanitarian emergencies across the globe. 

CARE is internationally recognised for its capacity and effectiveness in responding to humanitarian emergencies and assisting people whose lives have been torn apart. It has been on the frontlines of many of the worst crises in recent times—from the typhoon-devastated Philippines, to the violence-ravaged Syria and South Sudan.

Being part of our Roster will give you an opportunity to use your skills and experience in the Food security and nutrition sector and to be at the center of action when CARE responds to major humanitarian disasters. These deployments involve a great level of responsibility and are an amazing opportunity to make a difference to the lives and communities of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable.

CARE is seeking applications from candidates with 5+ year’s international humanitarian Food Security and Nutrition experience for the following:


Responsible for assessment, design and implementation of the food security and Nutrition component of CARE’s emergency response. S/he will need to ensure a rapid, proportionate and effective response. S/he will ensure response to immediate food security and nutrition needs with simultaneous consideration of longer term needs and possible scenarios. Depending on the situation the specialist may need to take a very active role in technical co-ordination, support and advocacy with other stake holders and technical agencies relevant to the sector.


All candidates must be able to demonstrate their understanding of the needs of women and children in emergency settings.

Applicants must be available for rapid deployment on short term contracts (typically from 2 weeks to 2-3 months).

We thank all candidates for the responses to this advertisement.  However, we regret that we will be able to contact only short listed candidates.
