The British Red Cross helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are. BRC is part of a global voluntary network, responding to conflicts, natural disasters and individual emergencies. It enables vulnerable people in the UK and abroad to prepare for and withstand emergencies in their own communities. And when the crisis is over, it helps them to recover and move on with their lives.
Following the Haiti earthquake of January 2010, under the co-ordination framework of the International Federation of Red Cross/Crescent Societies, BRCS has established a programme to assist affected communities to recover from the disaster.
The BRCS programme activities focus around an integrated community approach to urban neighbourhood recovery, including risk reduction and improving community resilience through sustainable livelihoods safe housing, public health improvements and infrastructure repairs and regeneration.
BRC is now looking for a Support Services Manager (SSM) who will be responsible for supporting the Head of Delegation to deliver the BRCS Integrated Urban Recovery Reconstruction Programme.
The key objectives for the Support Services Manager will include:
• To lead, motivate and support the implementation of effective administrative, human resources and financial functions, ensuring that they are efficiently run.
• To oversee and document the establishment and management of working processes across teams to ensure the development and implementation of high quality programme and support functions.
• As a member of the Senior Management Team (SMT), to contribute to the overall achievement of programme goals.
