Whilst watching the War unfold in Bosnia in 1992 we all saw governments and international organizations alike struggle to do or even understand what the right thing to do was during extremely difficult circumstances.
Alleged complicity of the International Community in the crimes committed during this period has been well documented.
It is our firm belief that had individuals on the ground been more willing or felt supported in their obligation to object to the crimes being committed at the lowest levels, many of those crimes may have not occurred.
The Humanitarian crisis which followed the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan, confirmed the need for an Ethical and Moral approach to Security Management and strong support for Humanitarians responding to emergencies.
The complexity of the Humanitarian response in Africa, the rise of extremism and the increase in the targeting of Humanitarians in the Middle East have all contributed to an extremely dangerous environment for Humanitarian staff.
The traditional view that simply utilizing an acceptance approach has clearly not been working resulting in a reactive response to "bunker down" erecting barbed wire topped walls, or even employing armed guards.
Humanitarian Security Management is a complex and ever changing concept.
We work hard to support the humanitarian community from within, and provide suitable appropriate security support which drives essential programs forward, rather then restrict them.
- Able to work remotely and/or from home
- Polite, professional, presentable
- Excellent organizational skills
- Fluent in English and Russian Language. Ukrainian would be an advantage.
