To achieve our vision of a world free from hunger, Action Against Hunger committed in its International Strategic Plan 2016-2020 to embed nutrition within all key sectors that can have an impact on people’s nutrition, including agriculture, education, health, social protection, water, sanitation and hygiene.

Social protection is to protect and to promote nutrition of the most vulnerable. While some important progress has already been achieved in the sphere of Social protection, the achievements up to today remain insufficient. That is the reason why there is a growing need and interest for having Social protection incorporated as a cornerstone of any strategy.


The main objective of the consultancy is to provide technical support and guidance to the Social Protection Working Group of Action Against Hunger for the development of a Technical agenda on Social Protection, to be aligned with Action Against Hunger´s mandate, policies and strategy.

  • Technical agenda on Social protection with a tailored definition of Social Protection for Action Against Hunger
  • Training modules / webinars materials
  • List of resources materials and tools on Social Protection relevant to Action Against Hunger´s mandate and work
  • Exhaustive review and mapping of Social Protection initiatives implemented by Action Against Hunger and other main actors at global and regional levels
  • Mapping of critical knowledge gaps on Social Protection relevant to Action Against Hunger mandate and strategy


The consultancy might be implemented by a team (e.g. junior and senior category experts) or by a single expert covering all the expertise required. The minimum skills required from the expert or from the team are listed below.

Qualification and skills:

  • Master or PhD in Social protection
  • Minimum 5 years of experience in the area of Social protection
  • At least 3 years of experience in consultancy projects or activities applying participatory facilitation and training techniques

Questions Typiques
Why Should I Hire You? The most overlooked question is also the one most candidates are unprepared to answer. This is often because job applicants don't do their homework on the position. Your job is to illustrate why you are the most qualified candidate. Review the job description and qualifications very closely to identify the skills and knowledge that are critical to the position, then identify experiences from your past that demonstrate those skills and knowledge.
Questions à poser
Can you tell me about the team I’ll be working with? Notice how the question is phrased; it assumes you will get the job. This question also tells you about the people you will interact with on a daily basis, so listen to the answer closely.
