Subject: Consultants' Roster


Dear ngonuts,

Although we do not use ngonut for advertising for positions, WHO is establishing a roster of those who would be willing, and are sufficiently experienced and able, to act as consultants for crisis/emergency work. As such, this will be a service, and I think we should help in any way we can to establish such a roster.

Here is the text of the message:

> The WHO Programme of Nutrition often receives requests for consultants

> to assist countries all over the world facing crisis/emergency

> situations. In order to better respond to these requests, it has been

> decided to set up a consultants' roster of highly qualified

> nutritional field experts.

> Potential candidates for this consultants' roster should have a

> medical/nutritional background with extensive field experience

> including previous assignments in emergency/refugee situations, either

> alone or as a member of a team. Consultants must be available with

> short notice and for periods of up to three months. The duties would,

> among others, involve conducting baseline surveys, assessing

> nutritional needs and determining appropriate interventions. Fluency

> in either English, French or Spanish would be required.

> Interested candidates should contact: Catherine Nerfin, Programme of

> Nutrition, World Health Organization, 1211 Geneva 27, Switzerland,

> tel: +41 22 791 4342, fax: +41 22 791 4156, email: nerfinc(a)who.ch,

> or send their curriculum vitae directly.


Best wishes,

Michael , I would really appreciate if you could forward this on the network... but would understand perfectly if you would rather not!



Dear NGO nuts,

We have a consultancy coming up mid-february (!) and the consultant originally identified suddenly pulled out on us (certainly for excellent personal reasons). The consultancy is for the period from February 16 to March 27, 1998, in the Solomon Islands. The consultant's job will be formulating a food production and nutrition policy and the work will include organising a 3 day national workshop on the subject matter from March 16-18, 1998. Other candidates exist for this position but cannot start at the requested date.

If you have any suggestions for someone suitable for this job and from our Asia-Pacific region, please do not hesitate to send me their name with contact details.

Have you contacted Ruth Harvey in Fiji? I have sent you notice to Phil Harvey (who is in Atlanta). And will send it to some others as well.

Subject: Ngonut: Working possibilities


The Food and Nutrition division in FAO will be recruiting in the coming months a P-3 (5 years experience) nutritionist familiar with household food security issues and ability to work in at least two of the working languages of the organization (English, French and Spanish), to be posted in Rome. If you are (or know somebody who would be) interested, please send me a short CV.

Experience in relief and rehabilitation context, and familiarity with causality models of malnutrition and PRA tools would be welcome.

Please note this is a completely informal communication. I would however make sure interested people are kept informed of the official recruitment procedures when the administrative process gets underway.


Have a nice day.

Subject: Ngonut: job vacancies + alertnet



As you know we decided not to advertise on ngonut. Alertnet does offer

this service so for those of you with Internet access

the URL is <http://www.alertnet.org> Jobs will be under the section

"Update/Jobs" - if you want to place a vacancy add then send the text to

<atalertnetatrtrlondon.co.uk> attention Cassie Knight.

Alertnet is for NGOs and contains a host of very useful field reports and

early-warnings from areas of the world in need of humanitarian action - it

is well worth a visit.

I understand that ILSE also runs a job-vacancy service - could someone

give the coordinates please.

Remember - no advertising on ngonut - thank you.
