Technician Delegate for Emergency Response Operations?.

Please note that this advertisement concerns application for training with subsequent admission to our Emergency Response Unit ( ERU ) roster as a Technician Delegate . It does not concern a specific, nor permanent, position within the Norwegian Red Cross.? ?

An Emergency Response Unit (ERU) is designed to offer immediate assistance and is normally operational for up to four months. An ERU is composed of trained delegates who deploy with standardized equipment.

The Norwegian Red Cross (NorCross) maintains a roster of trained specialists (delegates) ready to be deployed anywhere on short notice in response to international emergencies (natural disasters, conflicts, war zones or health emergencies). Delegates work closely with the local Red Cross/Red Crescent National Society to provide specific services where local infrastructure is damaged, temporarily out of service, out of reach or insufficient to cope with the needs.

NorCross’ ERU delegate roster consists of persons who are able to respond to an international health emergency on short notice. Most of the delegates have a full-time job in EU/EEA and Switzerland with permission from their employer to take leave of absence if asked by NorCross to go on mission. The length of a mission is usually minimum 4-6 weeks and the delegate receives salary from the Red Cross while on mission.?

We are currently looking for Technician Delegates with formal training and experience within at least one of the following fields:?

  • Electrician (technical diploma or working knowledge of 230V & 400V system, generator up to 100kVA and solar energy systems)?

  • IT networking (TCP/IP, router, wireless networking, traffic shaping, QoS)?

Knowledge of medical activities, such as paramedic experience, is highly valued. You will be expected to develop additional skills, through Red Cross trainings, within Water & Sanitation management, Logistics and Finance, in order to give you a well-rounded and relevant delegate profile.??

Candidates who do not meet the requirements of EU/EEA/Swiss citizenship and 12 hours proximity to Oslo, Norway will not be considered for this position.
