Background Information – Job-specific

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) has established a Centre for Humanitarian Data in The Hague, the Netherlands to help increase the use and impact of data in the humanitarian sector. The vision is to create a future where all people involved in a humanitarian situation have access to the data they need, when and how they need it, to make responsible and informed decisions.

The Centre will focus on four areas: 1) data services; 2) data policy; 3) data literacy; and 4) network engagement. As part of the data literacy workstream, the Centre will manage a Data Fellows Programme to help build the capacity of partner organizations and OCHA offices to work with data.

The fellows may be students who are in graduate school or people working in the tech industry who want to contribute to the social sector for a fixed duration. The fellows will work in support of partner activities at the Centre in The Hague or be placed within an organization at headquarters or the field.

A Coordinator is required to further develop the Data Fellows Programme with a view to implementing a pilot by early 2018. Initial user research was conducted on the potential design of the programme in mid 2017. The findings and recommendations from that research needs to be turned into a functioning programme with clarity around the administrative model, fellow focus areas, profiles and duration, and main partners.

The consultant will report to OCHA’s Chief of Data Services and lead for the Centre for Humanitarian Data, who is based in The Hague. He or she will be expected to work closely with the Centre’s team including the heads of the Data Partnerships and Design teams.
