We are currently looking for a Senior Assessment Officer to work on our Camps and Displacement programming in Syria.

REACH Initiative Syria is currently seeking a professional with experience in research to lead components of its Camps, Displacement and Shelter programming in Northern Syria as a Senior Assessment Officer (SAO). In this role, the SAO will be responsible for leading the above-mentioned project, as well as collaborating on other related projects. The SAO will work closely with the SNFI Cluster, the CCCM cluster, and other relevant sectoral actors. Apart from managing the project, tasks will include indicator review and development, technical tool development, coordination of data collection, data analysis, output production, and presentation of key findings and messages as and when required by the assessment, unit, and partners

The SAO is responsible for acting as the external focal point with partners for all project activities, updating tools and SOPs when needed, closely managing data processes, and producing monthly reports to donors. The SAO will be responsible for overseeing all research streams within the project portfolio. This includes meeting contractual deliverables, including coordination of training with partners, and production of datasets, analysis, factsheets, situation overviews, and narrative reports. The SAO will also manage technical staff (Data and/or GIS Officers) who work on the project.

The ideal candidate will be eager to work in a dynamic organization with opportunities to build upon existing data analysis and external coordination skills. Past experience in the aforementioned areas is not essential, but highly desirable. Familiarity with the humanitarian and/or development sector, quantitative analysis skills, and effective communication skills are also desirable. Most importantly, we are looking for a creative self-starter, who can independently manage a year-long complex project, where plans must be constantly adjusted according to the realities on the ground.
