National Representative Poland, Safeguarding Resource and Support Hub (RSH)

Social Development Direct

Warsaw, Poland

The war in Ukraine has led to millions of displaced, traumatised, and vulnerable persons inside Ukraine and in surrounding countries. The Global Safeguarding Resource and Support Hub has received funding from the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC), via Save the Children and Plan International, to support safeguarding across the humanitarian response in Eastern Europe. Hubs have been established in Poland, Moldova, Romania and Ukraine to support organisations in the international humanitarian and development sectors to strengthen their safeguarding policy and practice against Sexual Exploitation, Abuse and Sexual Harassment (SEAH).

This is an exciting opportunity to join an impactful and innovative programme in the Eastern Europe (EE) region. The National Representative Poland position is based in Poland, with occasional travel within Europe. The role will be responsible for designing and delivering the workplan of the Poland Hub, including setting the strategic direction (both short and longer term); mapping the safeguarding risks, needs and opportunities; safeguarding service delivery (e.g., developing materials and resources); relationship management with key stakeholders; coordination with other Hubs; and learning. The successful candidate will also work closely with the communications team to develop a national communications plan and safeguarding community of practice. S/he will manage all activities targeting Polish stakeholders (e.g., civil society organisations, government entities, etc) via the RSH online hub and face to face. S/he will report to the Regional Lead and work closely with colleagues from across the RSH EE team and Technical Advisor pool. Support will be provided from  regional M&E and communications advisors, as well as from short term consultants as needed.
