The GICHD’s Information Management (IM) Division is composed of an international team of professionals specialised in Information Management solutions, who advise and develop a sustainable Information Management capacity in national partner countries. Each team member acts as a focal point for a portfolio of countries as well as for thematic or technical expertise in the field of Information Management.
Within the division, the Information Management Capacity Development (IMCD) aims to enable national authorities and other actors in the mine action community to leverage high-quality information towards evidence-based decision making. Activities under this project include capacity assessments, leading to recommendations and information management workshops with specific topics drawn from the work plan. An important focus in 2019 is on IMSMA Core deployments and roll-outs.
In order to ensure comprehensive support to mine-affected countries, members of the Information Management team also work in close collaboration with Advisors in the other Divisions who specialise in mine action survey and clearance, ammunition safety management and residual contamination. Advisors are also expected to represent GICHD in international events; provide general or IM-specific presentations to partners and diplomatic representatives; and play an active role in project management, in the organisation’s strategic management and in the reporting to GICHD’s governance and donor institutions.
To apply please follow this link GICHD Job Application Portal and submit your candidacy through the online platform. Your application must be presented in English and include a CV of maximum 5 pages, a letter of motivation, your earliest date of availability and any other additional material you wish to present in support of your candidacy.
The GICHD implements a Gender and Diversity policy and is an equal opportunities employer. Applications are encouraged from women and men, nationals of mine-affected countries and individuals with a disability or special needs, who meet the above profile requirements.
The Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD) works towards reducing risks to communities stemming from explosive ordnance, with a particular focus on mines, cluster munitions, other explosive remnants of war and ammunition storages. The Centre helps develop and professionalise the sector for the benefits of its partners: National and local authorities, donors, the United Nations, other international and regional organisations, non-governmental organisations, commercial companies and academia. It does so by combining three distinct lines of service: field support focused on capacity development and advice, multilateral work focused on norms and standards, and research and development focused on cutting-edge solutions. These efforts are facilitated from the GICHD's location within the Maison de la Paix in Geneva.
