stakeholders within the Movement as part of the Surge Optimisation process
The Core Competency Framework for Surge Personnel has been developed and agreed collaboratively with a wide range of
stakeholders within the Movement as part of the Surge Optimisation process – and has been derived from
looking at the existing competency frameworks of the IFRC, as well as those of other National Societies, DFID humanitarian competencies and
the Start Network Core Humanitarian Competencies.
This Framework is used for everyone being deployed into a surge response and it sets out the behaviours, skills and knowledge required by all surge personnel at all levels of a response operation and applies equally to all surge personnel.
The Framework includes twenty core competencies, which are applicable to every surge role, regardless of their position in the operation.
However, each competency is divided into four different tiers and the tier required for each competency will be
different depending on the position.
