Deployment Process

RedR Australia deploys people from its standby roster for assignments with UN and other agencies. Deployments are generally for a duration of three to six 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: 

  • Standby Partner request for personnel sent to RedR Australia
  • RedR Australia assesses: does it fit our mandate and priorities?
  • security of location
  • do we have available personnel?
  • 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 who make the final decision

For the selected RedR Australia candidate, we arrange the following:

  • visa assistance
  • travel, medical checks, insurance and access to psycho-social support
  • salary, living allowance, superannuation
  • pre-departure briefing
  • in-country arrival

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 will report 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
  • final report and deployment evaluation
  • Post deployment debrief
  • medical and psychological appointments
  • discussion on future availability and training
  • reconciliation of finances
