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 in its fields of intervention.
We are currently looking for an Junior Assessment Officer to support our Humanitarian Situation Monitoring Unit in Ukraine.
Position: Junior Assessment Officer
Contract duration: 6 months
Location: Ukraine, Kyiv
Starting Date: ASAP
Following the escalation of the conflict in Ukraine on February 24th, 2022, military hostilities have caused widespread damage to infrastructure and houses, hundreds of civilian deaths, disrupted markets and essential services, and precipitated massive displacement within Ukraine and into neighbouring countries. Present in Ukraine since 2014, IMPACT is working across the country to provide humanitarian actors with rigorous data and in-depth analysis to ensure aid interventions are timely, appropriate, and relevant. The Humanitarian Situation Monitoring (HSM) Unit conducts regular data collection cycles to monitor the humanitarian needs of populations across Ukraine, to support ongoing humanitarian planning, and to enable effective prioritization of aid efforts. Assessment Officers support these aims, by coordinating data collection, producing analysis to better understand fluctuating needs, and ensuring this information is disseminated to operational partners via impactful and academically rigorous products.
IMPACT is seeking a candidate who has previous experience in conducting research; either through primary data collection and/or supporting analytical outputs, to support the HSM Unit in Ukraine. The Junior Assessment Officer (JAO) will be responsible for supporting the monthly data collection and output production for different regions of Ukraine, and should be familiar with analysis of both quantitative and qualitative data, as well as drafting sections of reports to tight deadlines. The HSM Unit regularly engages with both internal and external assessment teams, technical agencies, and key analysis forums to identify information gaps and provide technical support as needed. The JAO will support the AO and RM to represent REACH findings to key external actors, including stakeholders in the humanitarian coordination system, technical working groups and various NGO fora and information management groups.
The position is based in Kyiv. In addition, the position may require regular travel across Ukraine, all conducted in close coordination with the ACTED Country Security Manager and Ukraine Country Security Team.

2. REACH REPORTING
The Junior Assessment Officer will support the AO in consolidating all analyses and conclusions from monthly data collected into IMPACT products such as dashboard, factsheets, reports and briefs using guidelines, formats and templates provided by IMPACT HQ. The JAO is responsible for following the designated timeline of draft sections of outputs to be submitted to the AO and RM. He/she must ensure the writing of timely and accurate outputs or sections thereof, ensuring the quality and accuracy of technical information provided as well as the confidentiality and protection of collected information. He/she will ensure that assessment reports contribute to aid coordination and planning and add to the general base of field knowledge in the country for all organisations working in the areas.
The JAO will support the HSM team in representing IMPACT in cluster and technical working groups and follow up on feedback related to HSM analyses or outputs as received by partners in cluster meetings.
