We are currently looking for a Senior Assessment Officer to support our team in Ukraine.
Under the line management of the Humanitarian Infrastructure and Damage Unit Research Manager (RM), the Senior Assessment Officer (SAO) 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 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 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 be responsible for the development and implementation of a research cycle aiming to increase our understanding of external factors (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 involve leading a multi-disciplinary team with up to (5) five direct reports. The ideal candidate will be eager to work in a dynamic and fast-paced organisation, with opportunities to help build the mission’s portfolio.
