    English/French (Spanish and Italian an added value) TRAVEL As required by work plan
    Maximum 90 working days (between December 2019 –December 2021)

    1. Background & Rationale
      SC Italy has launched a strategic initiative for the period 2019-21 on the development of a case management approach/framework for children and adolescents involved in migration, displacement and returnee children and adolescents. The initiative intends to build on Save the Children’s global experience on Child protection case management that has led the organization to develop the recent Common Approach “Steps to Protect”. The “Steps to protect” common approach supports the realisation of Save the Children’s “BE PROTECTED” breakthrough, by working with children, families and communities to reduce harm for all children, and contribute to all forms of violence experienced by children, girls and boys.
      It enables Save the Children to endorse a systematic step-by-step process to working with individual children, girls and boys and their families to address all forms of violence, abuse, exploitation and neglect experienced by children.
      However, the migration scenario might pose additional challenges for both the formal and informal child protection systems and the Common Approach is not sufficiently tailored to respond to as it includes a limited guidance for the work conducted on children involved in migration. For this reason, SC IT intends to develop a framework that will eventually equip Child protection teams
      globally with appropriate tools when targeting unaccompanied and separated children, as well as children without a clear migration status, who appear to be the most deprived, either in transit or at destination.
      To this end, SC IT is looking for a professional consultant that under the supervision of the Senior Child Protection Technical Advisor will provide guidance and technical support to the design, development, pilot and evaluation of this case management framework within the period 2019-2021.

    3. Tasks and expected deliverables
      The consultant will be hired from December 2019 to December 2021. The timeframe for the consultancy is considered as fixed and cannot be changed, in consideration of Save the Children’s Italy commitment with Save the children Global themes and Save the children country offices.
