Job Title: Programme Support Officer (Migration Management (MM))

Location: Lagos, Nigeria
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, the European Union (EU) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) have developed the Joint Initiative for Migrant Protection and Reintegration in Africa (hereinafter “Joint Initiative”). Implemented in 14 countries (Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal and The Gambia) through 14 specific actions, it aims to protect the security, dignity and rights of migrants along this important and dangerous migration route and to help 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, 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.
  • The Initiative will aim at strengthening the technical and material capacities of the authorities and organizations involved in these areas so that they can ultimately take over policies and programmes related to the protection and reintegration of migrants in the region, with a view to improving the governance of migration in the region.
  • A major component of the Joint Initiative in Nigeria is the provision of sustainable reintegration assistance to more than 8,000 returnees going back to various parts of the country.
  • Reintegration can be considered sustainable when returnees have reached levels of economic self-sufficiency, social stability within their communities, and psychosocial well-being that allow them to cope with (re)migration drivers. Having achieved sustainable reintegration, returnees are able to make further migration decisions as a matter of choice rather than necessity.
  • Working under the overall supervision of the Deputy Chief of Mission and Programme Manager (FMM), and the direct supervision of the Project Manager (MM) And Head of Sub Office, the successful candidate will be responsible for providing overall support in the implementation of project activities, project monitoring, liaison, communications and reporting.

  • Support in maintaining continuous liaison with the donor, other IOM Missions, Regional Office (RO) and Headquarters (HQs) to facilitate a coordinated approach to project implementation, identify synergies with IOM’s EUTF programmes in the region, and make recommendations.
  • Support in liaison with national and state authorities, programme partners, civil society, the international community and donors for the successful implementation of project activities and visibility.
  • In coordination with the Programme Manager and Reintegration Officer, support the development, enhancement and implementation of national Standard Operating Procedures (SoPs) related to return and reintegration.
  • Keep track of donor reporting requirements and submission deadlines for each report. Follow up within the Mission for the timely preparation, review, and submission of all project reports to donors. Ensure these are in line with specific IOM and donor requirements.
  • Ensure regular preparation of periodic reports, updates, programme summaries, press releases, and other relevant information materials and statistics according to specific project needs.
  • Prepare for donor visits in coordination with the Programme Manager and relevant units within IOM. Ensure that sufficient visibility and information / communication materials are available.
