Syria Crisis Data Management & Analysis Officer

MSF OCBA is recruiting a Syria Crisis Data Management & Analysis Officer

  
Permanent base: Middle East Unit, Amman
Covering contexts: Syria
Hosting MSF section: OCBA – Middle East Unit
Reporting Line: Regional Operational Manager- Cell 1 OCBA /  Desk Platform
Starting date: Immediately
Duration: Temporary position planned until December 2018
  1. POSITION BACKGROUND

Since the beginning of the conflict in Syria, MSF has engaged in numerous medical humanitarian activities aimed at assisting those suffering from the war, now in its seventh year. The complexity of the conflict – with numerous actors, limited access, direct attacks on healthcare personnel and facilities, and massive needs – has resulted in an equally complex response by MSF, with five operational centers running multiple projects at a high operational intensity and from different places such as Turkey, Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon. This complex environment created difficulties to have a comprehensive reading of the humanitarian situation and needs or the global impact of MSF’s interventions.
These complexities have produced an overwhelming amount of data, on medical and humanitarian needs as well as on attacks against the medical mission, both for internal and external uses. This data is valuable, from both an operational, and communications and advocacy perspective, because it is an effective tool to use in measuring the impact of the war and MSF´s response to the needs on the ground.
It is critical that MSF leverages this data, tracking, capturing and communicating both the acute and overwhelming humanitarian needs, and MSF´s response to it. The Data Management and Analysis Officer (DMAO) is a new role designed to capture and communicate data to improve the movement´s ability to inform operations, communicate and advocate effectively.
This role is designed to address the following needs:                           
  • Compile coherent, comprehensive and current picture of MSF´s projects and their collective impact in Syria, in order to facilitate evidence-based decision making.
  • Key public communication on Syria has leverage insights based on our shared and unique medical data.
  • Grab opportunities to communicate using data journalism and data visualization tools, particularly on social media, and resonate deeply with audiences. These tools have the potential of significantly increasing MSF´s acceptance and leverage.
  • Facilitate advocacy with the most current data that contributes to stronger and timely messaging.
  • To simplify assembling intersectional data, and struggle to issue accurate and timely communications with a strong backbone of data.  
  • Give an overview of data trends, data mapping and data analysis to generate compelling narratives of MSF´s activities in Syria.
  • Avoid circulation of incomplete and incoherent data regarding MSF´s Syria response, which could jeopardize the credibility of our communications and advocacy.
