The British Red Cross helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are. We are part of a global voluntary network, responding to conflicts, natural disasters and individual emergencies.

The Programme Manager will ensure effective, efficient and appropriate use of BRC resources in supporting National Societies in Southern Africa to respond to emergencies, build resilience in vulnerable communities, and strengthen o rganisational capacity in relation to cash transfer programming.
