Emergency Roster Coordinator

The members of NCA’s emergency roster provide an extra pool of skilled resources when special needs arise. Today, the group is composed of approximately 70 individuals with expertise within water, sanitation and hygiene, gender-based violence, logistics and security.

We are now looking for an emergency roster coordinator who can further develop our existing emergency roster and create a roster that covers all emergency response needs that we have in the organization and ensure that we have the right type of resources at all times.

To be successful in this role, we believe that you have experience working with coordination and administration of larger projects or from a HR role. You want to work with HR-related tasks in the humanitarian section and want to contribute to finding the right person for the right assignment. You are able to work in sometimes chaotic environments, identify priorities and targets, and rapidly assist NCA’s teams towards implementation. As emergency roster coordinator you will collaborate closely with all relevant stakeholders within NCA in order to make our responses even more effective than they are today.

In NCA, we seek people who are motivated by our vision, our work and our values, and who wish to develop our organizational culture.
