    Closing date: 12 Jun 2017

    We are looking to recruit a consultant to help us with an exciting piece of research looking at the emergency response work carried out by local and national partners in the 5 Shifting the Power countries (Bangladesh, DRC, Ethiopia, Kenya and Pakistan) during the project period. This review will explore how being part of the STP project has contributed to local organisations’ response to an emergency

    A ToR for the consultancy, which outlines application details can be accessed here – https://start-network.box.com/s/30es8b1sgb52pzcjm1npp2fgla3gtv25

    To give you a little more background/context on what we are doing:

    · Six international organisations – ActionAid, CAFOD, Christian Aid, Tearfund, Concern and Oxfam are working together in the Shifting the Power project , which runs from January 2015 to December 2017. By supporting 55 local and national NGO partners in Bangladesh, DRC, Ethiopia, Kenya and Pakistan who share the vision and ambition of playing a leading role in decision making and responding to crises in their countries and regions, this project aims for a more balanced humanitarian system where local actors take their place alongside international actors.

    · The STP project provides all partners with in-depth capacity strengthening support to strengthen their capacity to determine and deliver humanitarian preparedness and response. The project views capacity strengthening as a complex, evolving journey of internal change characterised by trust, collaboration and self-reflection. Although there are common steps in the process the journey is unique to each local organisation.All partner organisations started by conducting a 3-day capacity self-assessment workshop using the Strategic Humanitarian Assessment and Participatory Empowerment Framework (SHAPE). The SHAPE framework is a capacity assessment tool to analyse an organisation’s strengths and gaps in relation to the organisation, their humanitarian capabilities and their voice and influence within the humanitarian system.

    · This review will focus on STP partners who have been involved in an emergency response during the project period. To date 25 partner organisations have responded and or are currently responding to emergencies including displacement due to conflict in DRC, flooding in Pakistan and Bangladesh and drought in Kenya and Ethiopia. This review will explore how being part of the STP project has contributed to local organisations’ response to an emergency. As emergencies are unpredictable and there is no baseline evidence of partner’s emergency responses at the start of the project, therefore this review will be based on the perceptions of the organisations themselves, disaster affected communities, STP agencies and key local humanitarian actors.It will look in depth at the value of the support partners have received through the capacity strengthening component. It will also identify other ways in which partners’ engagement in the STP project has influenced their emergency response, such as through participation in humanitarian coordination bodies or changes in their relationships with international members of the STP project.

    · The research piece will start in June and should be completed by September 2017

    The deadline for applications is 12th June 2017.


    How to apply:

    If you are interested to apply, please submit an Expression of Interest (EoI), which should include:

    -Your CV

    -Short proposal (3-5 pages) including a brief description of anticipated activities, indicative timeline and budget

    -Three references

    -Examples of similar work, including research or evaluation reports

    Please send the EoI package by e-mail to Nikita Samaratunga (nikita.samaratunga@actionaid.org)

    All submissions must be received on or before 12 June. Successful applicants will be contacted for an interview which will be held on 15 June.
