AO Deployments Officer x 2 posts
Job Description:

The Deployments Officer (DO) will work in one of the SU deployments regional teams: Sub Saharan Africa, Middle East and North Africa, Europe & Wider Multilaterals or Asia and ROTW (Rest of the World). The post is a flexible resource and will work to a particular region, be it at Sub-Saharan Africa, Middle East & North Africa, Europe and Asia regions, depending on SU’s evolving priorities.

The DO will be based in the Deployments Team, which has a key role supporting HMG’s stabilisation activity overseas with provision of properly trained, prepared and deployed civilian experts and serving Police Officers. The DO will manage the end-to-end deployment of civilian experts (including Civil Servants and consultant contractors) and serving Police Officers to support HMG’s stabilisation efforts in Fragile and Conflict Affected States (FCAS). The DO will be responsible for managing every step of the deployment process, ensuring that the deployee and parent Department is kept updated throughout the process. Steps include: helping to set the operational requirements of job descriptions, recruitment, arranging pre-deployment training and briefings; contributing to the security assessment of the deployed location; organising a debriefing at the conclusion of the deployment, contracting and management of financial information including deployee expenses. The DO will also have the opportunity to visit our deployed locations to gain first-hand experience of the environments in which the Stabilisation Unit works. Whilst deployment operations will occupy the majority of the time, there will be additional duties relating to the Stabilisation Unit’s operations with cross-government and international partners such as the European Union and the UN. There are also development opportunities in the unit. Should the DO maintain their daily workload there is a chance to get more involved in the thematic areas of the SU’s activities in the region and attend a number of cross government briefings on work in our deployed locations. The DO will occupy a key position in the team, and will be supported in his or her activities by both senior managers and peers.
