Join the world’s largest humanitarian network. The Canadian Red Cross Society (CRCS) is a not for profit, humanitarian organization dedicated to helping Canadians, as well as the most vulnerable throughout the world.
The Canadian Red Cross – International Operations is seeking experienced Water Sanitation (WatSan) professionals to join our Emergency Response Unit (ERU) delegate register! When you apply to this selection process, you are not applying for a specific job, rather you are applying for a position on the ERU register, to be called upon for future emergency deployments, as and when the need for your professional skillset is required. As opportunities become available, applicants who meet the qualifications may be contacted for further assessment.
Emergency Response Units (ERU) are teams of trained technical specialists who are ready to deploy on a short notice. ERUs are a vital part of the Red Cross' disaster and emergency response system and are used when the local capacity is overwhelmed. They are designed to be self-sufficient for one month but can operate for up to four months, operating with pre-packed sets of standardized equipment for immediate use. The Canadian Red Cross maintains a roster of vetted and trained personnel ready to be deployed anywhere on short notice in response to international emergencies (natural disasters, conflict, or smaller-scale emergencies). Missions are typically four to six weeks and delegates work closely with the local National Society to provide specific services where local infrastructure are damaged, temporarily out of use or insufficient in coping with needs. Due to the unpredictability of disasters and the response required, individuals may not be deployed until several months or years after becoming part of the roster. Once on the roster, you will be asked to confirm your continuing participation and keep your profile up to date.
This opportunity means that if you are selected to be part of the ERU WatSan register, your application will be reviewed on a rolling-basis, and should you meet the role qualifications, we will contact you accordingly once there is a direct requirement for your profile and start you on the path of deploying with us as a delegate!
