RedR Associate Security Trainer Call – Middle East

Due to the continuing humanitarian emergency in Syria and the capacity needs of aid agencies and their staff to respond effectively to this crisis in the Middle East, RedR UK is looking for experienced, qualified humanitarian security experts to join our pool of RedR UK Associate Trainers. We are specifically looking for individuals with experience in delivering Personal Security (HEAT) training and Security Management training. We welcome applications from individuals with expertise in one or both of these areas.

RedR UK opened an office in Amman, Jordan in 2014, from which we coordinate our humanitarian trainings in the Middle East. It is supported by our Headquarters office in the UK. From 2014-2015, RedR UK delivered training courses in Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Gaza, Lebanon, Tunisia and Turkey, providing essential skills to over 700 aid workers, the majority of whom are national or regional staff. We have provided trainings covering a range of sectors and topics, including; safety and security, emergency needs assessments, proposal-writing, WASH for urban settings, humanitarian leadership and programme management. We are currently looking to expand our Security Trainings in the region. We would specifically like to hear from candidates with experience in delivering trainings on Personal Security (HEAT) and Security Management.

Associate Trainers with RedR UK are listed on our consultant database and offered training work as and when needed and paid a daily rate. For this reason we cannot guarantee regular training opportunities. However, given current levels of demand we anticipate there will be many opportunities in the coming months.

In addition to delivering face to face trainings our Associate Trainers from time to time work closely with the RedR UK to develop new training materials, and convene events for humanitarian workers. If you are a security training professional with 5 years or more of field based humanitarian experience and you are based in the Middle East, RedR would welcome an application from you.
