We are currently looking for a Data Analyst to join our global Research Team, to contribute towards the integration of emerging innovations and best practices in Data Science within IMPACT’s way of working.

To work towards transformational change in how data is being produced, analysed, and used within the humanitarian sector, IMPACT launched an Innovation Communities of Practice (CoP) approach in 2023 to create dedicated spaces for testing ideas and sharing knowledge within the organisation, with a specific focus on Data Science and Effective Communications. Led by Specialists at the global level, these CoPs bring together staff with specialised skills and/ or interests to discuss common problems and identify solutions that enable organisational learning and growth.

Within this setup, the Data Analyst will take the lead on implementing pilot exercise(s) defined by the global Data Science Specialist in collaboration with the CoP, in order to determine how emerging best practices and innovations in the field of Data Science can be applied and sustainably integrated into IMPACT’s research and analysis practices.
