We are currently looking for a REACH Senior Assessment Officer to support our Humanitarian Situation Monitoring (HSM) unit in South Sudan.

REACH is currently recruiting for a Senior Assessment Officer (SAO) to manage HSM processes in one region of South Sudan (Greater Bahr el Ghazal – covering Northern Bahr el Ghazal, Western Bahr El Ghazal, Warrap and Lakes states). The overall goal of the Senior Assessment Officer will be to ensure the smooth running of activities, including operational and programmatic management of five REACH bases. This will include management of Junior Assessment Officers, assessment coordination and planning, operational oversight in terms of logistics, administration and HR, as well as donor and partner engagement.

The REACH SAO will represent REACH to key external actors, including stakeholders in the humanitarian coordination system, as well as technical working groups and various NGO fora and information management groups. He/she will ensure the dissemination of REACH findings to the relevant stakeholders and monitor information needs of the humanitarian community. More generally, the REACH SAO is expected to contribute to the creation of a positive image and overall credibility of the organisation.

The position is based in Juba, Central Equatoria, South Sudan, with regular travel to other field sites in South Sudan. Under the supervision of the REACH Assessment Manager and IMPACT HQ in Geneva, the REACH Senior Assessment Officer is responsible for the implementation of all REACH ad hoc needs assessments and rapid needs assessments, including their preparation, implementation, and follow-up.
