Organization: IMPACT Initiatives
Country: Switzerland
Closing date: 24 May 2019

BACKGROUND ON IMPACT AND REACH

REACH was born in 2010 as a joint initiative of two International NGOs (IMPACT Initiatives and ACTED) and the United Nations Operational Satellite Applications Programme (UNOSAT). REACH’s purpose is to promote and facilitate the development of information products that enhance the humanitarian community’s decision making and planning capacity for emergency, reconstruction and development contexts. REACH facilitates information management for aid actors through three complementary services: (a) need and situation assessments facilitated by REACH teams; (b) situation analysis using satellite imagery; (c) provision of related database and (web)-mapping facilities and expertise.

IMPACT Initiatives is a humanitarian NGO, based in Geneva, Switzerland. The organisation manages several initiatives, including the REACH Initiative. The IMPACT team comprises specialists in data collection, management and analysis and GIS. IMPACT was launched at the initiative of ACTED, an international NGO whose headquarter is based in Paris and is present in thirty countries. The two organizations have a strong complementarity formalized in a global partnership, enabling IMPACT to benefit from ACTED’s operational support on its fields of intervention.

We are currently looking for Direct Partner Support Coordinator to lead IMPACT’s direct partner support programmes

Position: Direct Partner Support Coordinator

Contract duration: 12 months

Location: Geneva, Switzerland

Starting Date: ASAP

POSITION PROFILE

Under the supervision of IMPACT’s Executive Director, the Direct Partner Support Coordinator has the overall responsibility for overseeing and providing dedicated program support to IMPACT’s direct partner support programmes, both in countries of implementation and at the global level. S/He is part of the Senior Management Team in HQ.

IMPACT’s direct partner support programmes aim to:

  • Improve the effectiveness, efficiency and efficacy of humanitarian and development interventions
  • Support the entire program cycle, including program design, assessments, baselines, monitoring and evaluation

Where REACH and AGORA focus on support for coordination structures, group decision making processes and open access to information, IMPACT’s direct partner support programmes work through bi-lateral relationships with key decision makers with all outputs being the partner’s property. IMPACT has implemented more than 45 partner support programmes in 9 countries across MENA and Sub-Saharan Africa for 18 donors.

These activities include:

  • Baseline, midterm and endline assessments
  • Post-distribution Monitoring
  • Long-term Third-party Monitoring
  • Institutional Capacity Building

Implemented within an NGO model, rather than that of a consulting firm, IMPACT’s direct partner support programmes deliver:

  • Quality à At a level equal to or greater than the private sector by leveraging an extensive global network of technical, contextual and thematic humanitarian experts
  • Ownership à Due to our established presence in all responses where we implement partner support programmes, and our generally pre-existing relationships with partners, we have stake in developing ownership over all projects and building/ retaining knowledge
  • Value for Money à Extensive existing networks of staff, partners and support structures in-country, combined with no profit motivation, typically make us better value for money than the private sector

Recognizing the need for guidance about what it means for business to respect and support children’s rights, in complement to the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (A/HRC/RES/21/5), the Children’s Rights and Business Principles (the Principles) were released in March 2012. The Principles identify actions that all businesses should take to prevent and address risks to children’s rights in the workplace, marketplace and the community. UNICEF has developed a suite of Tools (the Tools) and guidance materials to facilitate business integration of children’s rights in due diligence processes.
