Regional Child Protection Information Management Specialist, Dakar, Senegal


UNICEF is seeking a Regional Child Protection Information Management Specialist in Senegal. The purpose of this position is to enhance data collection and data management, to consolidate the capacity of UNICEF Child Protection Country Offices sections and partners at the national level, building on existing information management (IM) systems, and where appropriate, to support the technical roll-out of new IM systems in humanitarian and non-humanitarian contexts.

Central to support that is provided to Country Offices in Monitoring and Evaluation for Child Protection by the Regional Child Protection Specialist (M&E), dedicated support in information management is needed at the regional level for COs on systems for data collection, data management, data sharing, and data quality assurance. In 2018, the WCARO Child Protection team will place specific emphasis on improving data collection tools and setting up mechanisms for data consolidation and analysis, ensuring that data are consistently transmitted from the decentralized to the central levels, and are consolidated, analyzed and used to improve programmes, to raise awareness, and used for advocacy. In this context, the WCARO Child Protection team intends to recruit a candidate with specific expertise in the roll-out of existing global Information Management tools in both development and emergency contexts (ex. PRIMERO, Data for All, Kobo, and RapidPro...), and in linking data collection tools to the overall effort to measure the outcomes of the Child Protection system as a whole.

Application deadline is 2 March 2018.
