We are delighted to welcome Shaun Bickley to GISF. Shaun is taking over from Lisa Reilly as interim Executive Coordinator from November 2015 until March 2016. Shaun also covered the Executive Coordinator post prior to Lisa taking on the role, so he is very familiar with the running of GISF.
Shaun has more than 20 years’ experience in humanitarian access and security, in some of the most challenging conflict and crisis situations. As a leading humanitarian security consultant and facilitator, he has worked with a wide variety of organisations including British Red Cross, Save the Children, Plan International, Oxfam, Merlin, MSF (Holland), Islamic Relief, CARE International, Action Aid, Christian Aid, VSO and RedR.
Shaun supports organisations in strengthening their security risk management, advises them on securing access and safeguarding staff in high risk environments, and regularly facilitates personal security, security management and crisis management training and workshops for a range of organisations across different levels of staff. He is also the author of a number of security publications including CARE’s ‘Personal Safety & Security Handbook’, Save the Children’s ‘Safety First: A Safety and Security Handbook for Aid Workers’ and DG ECHO’s ‘NGO Security Collaboration Guide’.
You can contact Shaun via e-mail or call him on +44 (0) 7760 992 239.
