مطلوب موظف/ة تواصل للعمل لدى اليونيسيف

Communication Officer, NOB, Fixed Term, UNICEF Regional Office, Amman, Jordan, #97478 (Open for Jordanians Only)

Closing date

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, care…

Since 2011, the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region has undergone a dramatic transformation. What was once a middle-income region, where UNICEF was implementing mostly upstream work, has now become the region with the greatest concentration of humanitarian needs in the world with two Level 3 emergencies (Yemen and Syria) and many countries that are facing protracted conflicts as well as civil unrest and/or political transition.

UNICEF response has grown substantially across the country offices (COs) to keep pace with the increasing needs across the Region. The UNICEF COs across MENA, including those mentioned are responding to large humanitarian caseloads, managing large budgets, with significant implications on their data collection/management, analysis, reporting responsibilities and MENARO oversight. The scale of the emergencies in MENA demands high volume and quality data/information processing, analysis and subsequently reporting.

Each of the UNICEF Country Offices (COs) in the affected countries has a different level of information management (IM) capacity and needs, so continued robust IM capacity is required from the Humanitarian Section in the MENA Regional Office (MENARO). There are also a wide range of capacities in the Iraq, Yemen, Libya and Sudan COs to respond to IM needs, all of which require some degree of support to coordinate. Some COs may also require surge support which the IMO will need to respond to.
