The Minimum Standards for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action (CPMS) are the key global benchmarks for ensuring quality and accountability in programming to support children’s protection and well-being throughout humanitarian response. The CPMS, first launched in 2012, have been used by over 74,000 practitioners across more than 50 countries, and are amongst the most recognized humanitarian standards globally. With an updated edition launched in 2019, the CPMS have strengthened their relevance and evidence-based approaches to meet children’s protection needs in infectious disease settings and refugee contexts, and to provide comprehensive guidance on integrating children’s protection needs across all sectors of humanitarian response.
Save the Children co-leads the inter-agency working group on the CPMS, within the Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action. The Communications Manager will provide full-time support to the CPMS Working group in promoting, advocating for and implementing the 2019 CPMS at the global, regional and national level. This fixed term role will focus on proactive implementation of a global communications strategy to disseminate and promote the CPMS and its key approaches, including leading social media promotion, overseeing website revisions, providing communications and advocacy support to country-level launch and roll-out activities, and driving forward global advocacy and events to promote the standards.
