Information Management Officer (Personal Data Management) NOB (FT), Kabul, Afghanistan #118138 (Open to Afghanistan nationals only) 104 views

More Information

In anticipation of agreements with the World Bank, the Asian Development Bank and other major donors to implement programme interventions in the context of Afghanistan, the Afghanistan Country Office (ACO) is looking for an IM Personal Data Management. The IM Officer Personal Data Management will support the Beneficiary Data Manager in managing the technical relationship with data collection and processing partners, perform adequate quality assurance activities on data being collected, develop context specific data processing SOP, train UNICEF colleagues and partners in the use of HOPE and coordinate all user support needs that will result from the use of HOPE in ACO.

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

For every child, a chance.

The situation in Afghanistan remains exceptionally complex, with a protracted emergency situation, characterized by recurrent natural disasters, an increased number of people living in poverty, continued internal displacement, unprecedented levels of food insecurity, further compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic.  This complexity has greatly impacted the situation of children and women in the country. The withdrawal of United States military forces from Afghanistan in August 2021 and the establishment of a de-facto government by the Taliban has exacerbated the complexity and uncertainty of the situation. UNICEF is required to rapidly adapt our ways of working to address the multiple operational constraints present in the highly volatile and unpredictable context. This includes the need to establish a Programme Management Unit that will provide operational and transactional capacity to the Afghanistan Country Office to ensure urgent lifesaving and resilience building programmes can continue.

The Afghanistan Programme Management Unit’s (APMU) IM Officer Personal Data Management (NO2) will report to the Beneficiary Data Manager P4. He/she will be based in Kabul and oversee the beneficiary data collection and quality assurance activities through the Humanitarian cash Operations and Programme Ecosystem (HOPE).
