RECRUITING THE RIGHT PROFESSIONALS
- The first step in Justice Rapid Response’s certification process is the circulation of a “Call for Nominations” outlining expertise and profiles that are needed on its Expert Roster. The call for nominations, circulated via our broad network, is an invitation to nominate and self-nominate professionals with the specific type of expertise and skills that Justice Rapid Response is recruiting at that moment.
- Extensive outreach is conducted to ensure that the information reaches all the relevant potential partners, such as law enforcement agencies and national judiciary authorities.
- Prospective candidates are nominated by their employers. This is not just for quality control. Nominating employers also commit to do their utmost to make their experts available when their expertise is needed for an international investigation.
CONDUCTING A THOROUGH SELECTION PROCESS
- Justice Rapid Response carefully reviews each application for suitability for deployment to the missions for which it receives requests.
- A selection is made based on the applicants’ professional backgrounds and additional skillsets. Both professional and behavioural competencies are assessed.
- A balanced Roster with diversity in cultural, geographic, and gender representation is of paramount importance for Justice Rapid Response’s work. These criteria therefore are also taken into consideration.
- Additional background checks are conducted as part of the selection process.
PREPARING FOR RAPID DEPLOYMENT
- The Induction Programme is designed to introduce selected experts to the organization, the deployments and the values and principles of Justice Rapid Response.
- Participants’ feedback is incorporated into future versions of the induction programme.
CERTIFYING ON THE BASIS OF DEMONSTRATED ABILITY
- Upon completion of the selection and the vetting process, Justice Rapid Response decides on the suitability for the Justice Rapid Response Expert Roster and assesses potential learning needs.
- Suitable experts are certified after the completion of the mandatory induction programme.
- For some experts, Justice Rapid Response will consider that, in addition to the induction programme, participation in a JRR training course is necessary to be able to apply the expertise in the context of an international investigation. These experts will only be certified after the successful completion of this training course
- Certified experts are available to be deployed at short notice.
MANAGING AND REVIEWING THE ROSTER
- To provide a rapid response, experts keep their relevant information and their employment details up to date.
- The Roster is regularly reviewed to make sure it meets the evolving needs of the international community.
