RedR Australia deploys people from its Standby Roster for short-term assignments with UN and other frontline emergency relief agencies, providing surge capacity in an emergency. Deployments are generally for a duration of three months.
Our people are our most important assets. RedR Australia’s approach to deployments is a personal one, where deployees are prepared and supported, enabling them to do the best work possible. The care and welfare of our deployees is our highest priority.
The deployment process involves:
1. Request for humanitarian assistance
Standby Partner request for personnel sent to RedR Australia
RedR Australia assesses:
is it an emergency?
do we have available personnel?
security of location
deployment details emailed to Standby Roster personnel – start date, length of deployment, terms of reference
interested personnel respond to RedR Australia
RedR Australia puts forward suitable candidates to respective agencies which make the final decision
For the selected RedR Australia candidate, we arrange:
travel, medical checks, insurance
salary, living allowance, superannuation
Deployment arrangements may vary depending on your personal situation. You deployment officer will be in contact with you before your deployment.
while on assignment, the deployee works directly with the relief agency
deployee reports monthly to RedR Australia on progress of the assignment, challenges, humanitarian situation, living conditions, security and personal wellbeing. This allows RedR Australia to monitor the situation closely and provide professional, welfare and HR support
