Requisition: SVN 2020 261
Location: Lagos
Classification: Professional Staff, Grade P2
Type of Appointment: Special short-term graded, six months with possibility of extension
Estimated Start Date: As soon as possible

Context

  • Irregular migration along the Central Mediterranean route is increasingly dangerous for migrants. Crossing the Mediterranean to Italy is by far the deadliest route, with 1 death recorded for 35 arrivals (IOM, 2016). In addition, over 70% of the migrants interviewed by IOM on their arrival in Italy report that they were victims of trafficking or other exploitative practices during their migratory journey along the routes of the Central Mediterranean.
  • To meet these challenges IOM, with support from the European Union (EU), has developed targeted interventions in Nigeria and transit countries to protect the security, dignity and rights of migrants along this important and dangerous migration route and to help in improving the reintegration of returnees through an innovative approach. This will be achieved through different types of interventions including protection and assistance to vulnerable and stranded migrants, provision of direct assistance through search and rescue support, identification, referral and direct assistance to vulnerable migrants, assistance for voluntary return, support for sustainable reintegration in the communities of origin, the dissemination of accurate information on migration to migrants, potential migrants and communities, and the collection of data on migration flows.
  • As part of IOM’s global efforts to strengthen information management in the area, systems are being upgraded and expanded to ensure that data is systematically stored and managed through a centralized, standardized system. The upgrade improves operational efficiency and the data produced will be used to develop the evidence base on migration and vulnerability and provide valuable insight into IOM’s programming. The expanded systems will also include processes to improve the assistance workflow and monitoring of the return and reintegration experiences and outcomes of returns, as well as the assistance provided to all migrants in vulnerable situations assisted by IOM.
  • Working under the overall supervision of the Project Manager (MM) and Head of Sub Office, Lagos in Nigeria and the direct supervision of the Programme Support Officer (MM/PSU), Lagos and the thematic supervision of the Regional Office (RO) and Headquarters (HQs), the successful candidate will be responsible for the implementation, monitoring and effective coordination of Information Management (IM) related activities within the Migration Management Unit (MMU) in Nigeria.
