HumanSurge cherche à offrir ses services basiques à chaque professionnel humanitaire gratuitement. Nous sommes engagés à continuer d'offrir ce paquet basique (eg. tous les services offerts aujourd'hui) dans le futur.
HumanSurge facture une somme aux organisations pour continuer à travailler sur une modèle d'entrprise sociale autonome . Cela nous permet de continuer à offrir nos services d'une manière indépendante, transparente et responsable, tout en nous permettant d'optimiser les fonctionnalités par rapport aux besoins spécifiques. Les frais d'inscription dépendent principalement sur le taux de profils qu'une organisation cherhe à accéder, généralement catégorisé entre profils nationales or internationales.
HumanSurge a des conditions d'emploi specifiques pour les professionnels et organisations. Les conditions d'emploi encadrent la relation, droits et obligations de chaque parti. Pendant procédure d'inscription, nous vous demandons de lire et accepter les conditions d'emploi specifiques à votre type d'inscription (eg. professionnel ou organisation). HumanSurge vous recommande de lire ces conditions d'emploi.
Oui bien sûr. HumanSurge est une plateforme ouverte à tous les professionnels humanitaires. Quelqu'un avec l'expérience et les compétences pertinants au secteur est encouragé à s'inscrire. En fait, nous vous encourageons de partager HumanSurge (humansurge.org) sur vos réseaux sociaux ou par email!

Profils

HumanSurge a consulté beaucoup de recruteurs senior afin d'identifier les caractéristique primaires quand ils cherchent des professionnels qualifiés, ceux sur lesquelles est faite la première séléction ou 'shortlist'. Lors de l'inscription, HumanSurge demande en premier vos compétences et expériences principales - rendant l'inscription vite et facile!
Cepandant, nous savons que chaque professionnel est unique. En vous connnectant sur votre profil , vous pouvez modifier et ajouter beaucoup plus de spécificités sur votre profil, tels que vos qualifications clés, employeurs passés, détailles sur vos études, si vous faites parti d'un roster , etc. Nous vous encourageons à compléter votre profil. Le plus d'information vous donnez, le plus probable est que vous serez contacté .
Votre situation géographique actuelle (au niveau du pays/territoire seulement) peut être intéressant pour les organisations recruteurs pendant une urgence. Si vous êtes déjà localisé prés d'une zone affectée par un desastre, cela implique un temps de recrutement plus court et une connaissance contextuelle plus grande, augmentant vos chances d'être présélectionné.
Moreover, your nationality and current geographic location make you visible to organizations opting for a LITE package within that country/territory, as they can only see and contact profiles from one particular country/territory. This means that non-nationals currently located in a foreign country are also visible to organizations recruiting within their geographic location (whether these are national organizations or country-offices of international organizations or agencies).
We recommend you do. The more details you provide about the various jobs and assignments (period, locations, and context), the more accurately your profile can be classified. Recruiters are particularly interested in your experiences: the total time deployed in emergency or early-recovery/rehabilitation contexts respectively, the countries or territories in which you worked, the position you held, etc. Hence, the more details you provide, the more likely it is that you will be shortlisted and contacted.
HumanSurge calculates the total time deployed in emergency and early-recovery/rehabilitation contexts. This number is contrasted with the self-reported number of years of relevant experience and should not reveal major discrepancies.
Yes. After your initial registration you can edit your profile. There is ample opportunity to provide more details, such as adding key qualifications, a second nationality, adding more languages, and many more.
Organizations are mainly interested to know if you are fully operational (proficient) in a particular language. Therefore, you should only list a language that you read, write and speak sufficiently to perform all the tasks required in your profile / position in that language. Although it is nice to have some basic knowledge or a certain language, and it may help in situations, this is not crucial information. You can still mention it at a later stage, after being contacted, or in the elevator pitch if you believe it is important enough in your particular situation.
HumanSurge is still in beta and capturing only key information. In future, we may add the option to register your main trainings. For the moment, we recommend that you list them under your key qualifications and other skills (Go to ´Profile´ to add).
Each person is unique, with specific skills, preferences and a personal situation. Fortunately, no standard questions can ever hope to capture your individuality.
At the same time, these specifics are important to who you are. Sharing these specifics in a few sentences will ensure that a recruiter understands better who you are and what you are looking for, so that organizations only contact you if they have something that is really of your interest. A win-win situation.
The elevator pitch option lets you add a personal note and stand out from the crowd.

Preferences

HumanSurge placed the humanitarian professional at the center. Any experienced and qualified professional has a clear picture of what s/he wants or does not want. By stating these preferences, this also becomes clear to the recruiters, thereby increasing the likelihood of a successful contact, while avoiding the need for a professional to ´say no´ to an organization.
Preferences to indicate (will) include:
Time required to deploy; Maximum period willing to deploy; Country or region of work; Any ´no-go´ countries; Type of contract (employee or service contract); Preferences for any organization; Disposition to work with a religious-affiliated organization (note: we do not ask for, and advice against, the identification of your religion through the HumanSurge platform)

Availability and response times

Time is key in an emergency.
HumanSurge seeks to reduce recruitment times and costs by bringing available qualified professionals in contact with responding organizations. In order to avoid losing valuable time you should keep your availability status up-to-date.
HumanSurge will display the last day you confirmed your availability in the search results. Those who most recently confirmed will be listed higher. Someone who confirmed yesterday or last week, is more likely to actually be available, than someone who confirmed a month ago. Hence, recruiters are likely to contact those qualifying candidates who most recently confirmed availability, increasing the likelihood of a successful contact.
In your personal settings, you will be able to specify the frequency with which you want to (re)confirm your availability. HumanSurge will then send an email at the set interval and all you need to do is confirm.
In an emergency, every minute counts.
HumanSurge encourages you to respond immediately if you are contacted by an organization. It is not important if you confirm or reject an offer. Every person and situation is unique, and you can have good reasons for not being available (already contacted and deployed with another organization, the position or organization does not have your interest, any personal situation, etc.). The most important thing is that you inform the organization immediately, so there is no time wasted unnecessarily in finding the most suitable candidate.
HumanSurge will track response times and may report on them in future, boosting profiles who always provide a quick feedback.

Getting contacted and contracted

An organization can contact you through the platform, based on the profile you provided. You will receive a notice in your account and an email to the email address you registered with on HumanSurge. The first contact will typically contain the following information: (1) organization name, (2) position, (3) period of deployment, and (4) location. Based on this information, you should confirm interest or decline. When confirming, your full name and contact information will be provided to the organization, so they may contact you and complete the recruitment process. Also, additional information may be sent automatically, such as a complete job description (if provided by the organization). In case you decide to decline, you have the option to send a note to the organization, clarifying your motive for declining. No contact information will be exchanged in that case.
Maybe.
Why maybe? Well…
No, HumanSurge does not hire, nor guarantee that any organization will contact you or that such a contact will lead to an employment or service agreement, irrespective of your profile or total time registered on the platform.
And yes, if your profile and availability meets the needs of any organization, they may contact you. From that contact, you may reach a mutually satisfactory agreement to deploy (independent of HumanSurge, we do not get involved) - in which case you would end up with a job.
NO. And this is important. HumanSurge facilitates contact between humanitarian responders, professionals and organizations. We do not engage in contractual negotiations, nor consult on the matter. This process is at the sole discretion of, and upon agreement between, the contracting parties. Professionals and organizations are themselves fully responsible for the recruitment process, its outcome and consequences.
NO. HumanSurge does not contract anyone for humanitarian response operations and does not have an active field operation. It is the organization, which contacts professionals through the platform, who may engage in an employment or service agreement with said professional.
HumanSurge is a service provider to the humanitarian sector and consists of a small team of dedicated humanitarians, professionals and volunteers. At this stage, we are not recruiting.

Privacy

Your last name and contact details are only exchanged with an organization that contacts you, and only after you confirm interest in the position on offer at that organization.
In the search results, only your first name and profile details become visible. The public search function is limited and does not provide full details of individual profiles (such as the elevator pitch or experiences), nor does it list all profiles.
