We are currently looking for an Assessment Officer to support our team in Ukraine.

Under the line management of the Assessment Officer (AO) – Humanitarian Resilience Assessments, the Assessment Officer is responsible for the development and implementation of IMPACT’s research cycles in Ukraine, including the preparation, data collection, analysis, drafting, dissemination and evaluation stages. S/he is also responsible for supporting the management, implementation and follow-up of REACH Ukraine’s Humanitarian Infrastructure and Damage portfolio. This position will provide analytical capacity for the implementation of current research cycles and programmatic expansion in Unit. The ideal candidate will approach this role strategically, ensuring that the data collected and outputs disseminated can meet the information needs of targeted humanitarian actors, and of relevant local and national government authorities.

With the support of the SAO, the HIDU Research Manager (RM) and thematic experts in the Ukraine mission, s/he will support the identification of knowledge gaps on the humanitarian impact and recovery implications of  conflict-related infrastructural and environmental damage, design new assessments to address those gaps, and engage with a range of external stakeholders to ensure our data is appropriately informing response and recovery efforts.

Specifically, the candidate will contribute to the development and implementation of a research cycle aiming to increase our understanding of external factors (such as disaster and climate risks, environmental damage, access restriction due to landmines) likely to compound humanitarian needs and hinder recovery in selected settlements in Ukraine’s East and South. This will entails working as part of a multi-disciplinary team composed of Assessment Officers, GIS officers and Data Officers. The ideal candidate will be eager to work in a dynamic and fast-paced organisation, with opportunities to help build the mission’s portfolio.
