Global Director, Humanitarian Operations

*Position to be located within a jurisidiction (country or U.S.State) where WVI is registered to operate.

PURPOSE OF POSITION:

The Global Director of Humanitarian Operations plays a critical leadership role to ensure that the World Vision international Partnership is equipped to prepare for and respond to humanitarian emergencies and to oversee & support WV’s portfolio of major humanitarian responses, which in FY18 enabled WV to reached 14 million people with humanitarian assistance in response to 140 disasters in over 40 countries, and totaled $692 million, over a third of WV’s total ministry spend.

The role set’s WV’s disaster management standard, leads WV’s global surge capacity and capability development, matrix manages Regional Humanitarian Directors & national Emergency Response Directors and oversees $2 million of pre-positioned emergency supplies and our $7 million emergency preparedness & response fund.

BACKGROUND/CONTEXT:

  • Humanitarian crises are affecting more people and for longer. Driven by conflict, climate change and disaster over 130 million people worldwide need humanitarian assistance and protection just to survive. The number of active emergencies with an international response has doubled in a decade. Conflict related crises are increasingly protracted, with average emergency responses lasting 7 years and 60% of people receiving humanitarian assistance doing so for 5 years or more.

  • For children facing emergencies these large scale, protracted humanitarian crises means that much of their childhoods are too often scarred by violence, long term displacement and disrupted education with their psychosocial needs increasingly recognized. After years of decline global hunger is growing again. From 2015-17 the number of people experiencing crisis-level food insecurity or worse increased from 80 to 124 million.

  • Humanitarian principles are under attack and the international humanitarian system is changing. Aid work should be protected under international law, yet hospitals are bombed, aid workers targeted and civilians starved by armed groups. Despite growing humanitarian funding (from US$4 billion in 2005 to $15 billion in 2018) a huge funding gap remains, of around 40% in most emergencies. New ways of working are bringing greater effectiveness & efficiency through cash based assistance, digital innovation and more local, durable and preventive solutions.

  • Responding to the needs of vulnerable children in humanitarian emergencies has been central to World Vision’s identity and ministry since our founding. WV’s core values, mission statement, Board policy on ‘Disaster Management and Conflict Response’ and Our Promise’s strategic imperative to ‘deepen our commitment to the most vulnerable children’ all reinforce our commitment to principled humanitarian action framed by our Christian identity and child focus.

  • In FY18 World Vision reached 14 million people (incl. 10 million children) with humanitarian assistance in response to 140 disasters in over 40 countries. Disaster Management ministry totaled $692 million, over a third of WV’s total ministry spend.

  • Build and monitor WV’s Disaster Management capabilities at national, regional and global level.

  • Develop, maintain and deploy WV’s global rapid response and pre-positioning capacity: leading WV’s Global Rapid Response Team & overseeing WV’s pre-positioned emergency supplies and emergency preparedness & response fund.

  • Position World Vision as a leading humanitarian agency, overseeing WV’s relations and engagement with UN OCHA and engaging regularly with sector peers.

  • As a member of WV’s global Disaster Management executive team, contribute to the strategic direction and effective functioning of the Disaster Management team.
