Job Title: Lead Risk Financing Adviser roles within Centre for Disaster Protection

Job Code: 6635
Location: Nigeria

Description

  • The Centre for Disaster Protection was launched by the UK Prime Minister in July 2017 to strengthen resilience in developing countries through better preparedness and planning backed by risk-based financing arrangements. The Centre is funded with UK aid from the UK government.
  • The Centre for Disaster Protection works to change how the world prepares and pays for disasters. Identifying, planning for and financing disasters before they strike saves lives, reduces suffering and protects livelihoods and economies, especially for the poorest and most vulnerable communities.
  • The Centre brings countries together with international development, humanitarian and private sector organisations to find solutions and advocate for change. We find ways to stop disasters devastating lives by supporting countries and the international system to better manage risks. To do this, the Centre provides advisory services, builds knowledge, catalyses innovation and creates partnerships across the development, humanitarian and financial sectors.
  • With Covid-19, the world is more aware than ever of the importance of being prepared and working together to address risks. The Centre’s work has never been more crucial. With a recent funding uplift from the UK government to mid-2025, the Centre is entering a new period of organisational growth, evolving beyond its start-up phase to tackle the increasingly urgent impact of climate change and frequency of disasters around the world.

The Centre’s technical work is focused on cross-cutting goals as set out in our five-year strategy (2019-2024):

  • Advice – quality assurance and advisory services and training: We will have a respected and widely used quality assurance function that has increased the quantity and quality of risk financing products and services. Our effective technical assistance and capacity building will have supported high risk, vulnerable countries to make better disaster risk management decisions through knowledge exchange and genuine skills transfer.
  • Evidence and Learning: We will be internationally recognised as driving change through evidence, experimentation and learning which will strengthen the global evidence base on disaster risk financing.
  • Advocacy and Influencing:  Through advocacy and influencing and being a positive disrupter, we will have improved the quality and quantity of disaster risk financing through the multilateral system.
  • Additionally, we are focused on building effective systems and processes on people and operations to support the Centre to rapidly yet strategically scale and grow in a way that promotes diversity, equity and inclusion and ensures the organisation is a great place to work.

The Roles

  • As part of our organisational growth plan, we are expanding our Advisory team and recruiting up to three Lead Risk Financing Experts to support the delivery of the Centre’s ambitious workplan – in which our advisory offer is a strategic priority.
  • This workstream includes advice, quality assurance and training to developing country governments, international development and humanitarian organisations and donors to improve disaster risk management and financing. The workstream aims to ensure high quality crisis and disaster risk financing is available to and used to good effect by countries and organisations, so that the most vulnerable people are better protected.
  • Examples of work to be undertaken may include, for example: leading a team of consultants to provide technical advice to a low-income country government or a regional development bank on a disaster risk financing product; leading a review of a proposal from a humanitarian agency for a new risk management or financing initiative; or leading on the design of specific risk financing solutions and presenting findings at a global event.

In addition to role-specific responsibilities, the Lead Risk Finance Experts will be required to:

  • Uphold the organisation’s values and contribute to a positive organisational culture.
  • Build the Centre’s external reputation through delivering excellent technical work and the development of innovative solutions.
  • Develop effective partnerships and relationships at senior levels across the development, humanitarian and financial sectors.
  • Manage and supervise teams of Centre staff and consultants, coaching and mentoring colleagues as required, including potentially direct line management of a Risk Analyst.
  • One of the roles will also lead our training programme, increasing a range of stakeholders’ knowledge and enabling them to better engage with both the theory and practice of DRF to challenge the current system of slow and inefficient disaster relief. The Centre’s training aims to create a common language around DRF, encourage dialogue and debate around best practice, facilitate peer learning exchange, and ultimately equip stakeholders to do more and better DRF.
  • The Centre’s DRF training offering has been conceptualised, delivered and evaluated with a number of different stakeholders, ranging from country governments to multi-lateral institutions and humanitarian organisations.
  • Due to the pandemic, the foundational training modules have been delivered remotely and feedback from our stakeholders has been extremely positive.
  • This workstream is now at scale-up stage, with the scope to build upon this success and shape a comprehensive training programme and learning strategy to amplify the impact of this workstream.

What is a cover letter?

A cover letter is a one-page document that you submit with your resume to express your interest in a job opening. The purpose of a cover letter is to introduce yourself to an employer and provide a brief overview of your work history, professional skills, and an explanation why you’re the best fit for that job.

While your resume focuses on your qualifications and achievements, your cover letter expands on those achievements, showcases your personality, and explains why you’d be a good fit for the company.

How to write a cover letter that gets you the job

Here’s how to make a great cover letter for a job application:

Underneath your name in your cover letter header, list the following contact details:

  • First and last name
  • Email address (something professional, usually including your name)
  • Phone number
  • Mailing address (optional)
  • Linkedin profile link (optional)
  • Portfolio or website (optional)

After your header, include the date and following company contact information:

  • First and last name of the person you’re writing to, or the relevant department
  • Company address
  • Company phone number
  • Hiring manager’s email address

 

2. Address the hiring manager (ideally by their name)

Next, address your cover letter to the hiring manager by name if possible. A standard cover letter salutation includes the hiring manager’s first and last name, and begins with a “Mr.”, “Ms.”, or another relevant professional title.

3. Write an attention-getting opening paragraph

Start your cover letter with an informative, direct introduction by including the following details in the first one or two sentences:

  1. Job position: The title of the advertised position
  2. Company name: The name of the company you’re applying to
  3. How you discovered the opening: Whether you saw the job on LinkedIn, a job board, or were recommended to apply by a friend
  4. Intention to apply: An enthusiastic announcement that you’re applying for the open role and why you’re interested in or qualified for it
  5. Notable accomplishments: If you have relevant work experience, highlight one or two of your most notable achievements in your introduction to immediately grab the employer’s attention
