  • Salary of Kshs 3,159,173 - Kshs. 3,869,984 per annum.

    Job Purpose

    The Emergency Response Officer (ERO) – WASH has a global remit to contribute to the delivery of effective and high quality humanitarian assistance to new and ongoing humanitarian crises.

    As part of CAFOD’s Emergency Response Team - involving frequent travel at short notice - the ERO provides technical field level and remote operational support as well as supporting the implementation and maintenance of systems and procedures for ensuring good practice and meeting sectoral standards on accountability and programme quality.

    Working with partners is central to CAFOD’s humanitarian response and the ERO will play an important role in improving and developing the capacity of partners to prepare for, mitigate the impact of, and respond to disasters by providing support, knowledge and building long-term capacity.

    All roles undertaken by the ERO will have the aim of achieving peace, security and recovery in accordance with CAFOD’s mission and values.

    Job Scope

  • A key component of this role is to be a part of CAFOD's Humanitarian Department global emergency response surge capacity – providing immediate, usually short term support to our humanitarian response teams in the field, as well as remote support.
  • This role will be expected to be able to support a wide range of humanitarian responses, as well as technical expertise in Water and Sanitation.

    CAFOD’s humanitarian response comes before during and after emergencies. Our three core approaches are:

  • Capacity building of partners, in areas such as Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR),
    programme management, food security, nutrition and financial management.
  • Facilitation, in which we work alongside partners to help ensure the delivery of a programme. This is our most common way of working.
  • Implementation, where CAFOD takes on a more direct implementation role in the delivery of a programme when local partners lack the capacity to scale up rapidly.


  • The post holder is line managed by the Senior Emergency Response Officer. During specific emergency responses task management may come from other managers within CAFOD or its partner organisations.
  • The role does not have permanent line management or budget responsibilities.
