Short Consultancy to support the Mapping of interventions in The Gambia, Guinea, and Senegal
Job Title: Consultant
Duty Station London, UK
Reports To: Senior Programme Coordinator
Classification: Consultancy
Type of Appointment: Short-term consultancy
Estimated Start Date:
Closing Date:
As soon as possible
18th of March 2019

IOM UK is currently commissioning a large scale 21-24 month study in The Gambia, Guinea and Senegal (GGS) on “How and to what extent do interventions affect people’s migration aspirations, decision and movement, and on what timetable?”. The research will require analysis at the individual, household and community level and will explore ongoing, new, or recently completed interventions and their effect on migration decision making. The research will produce peer-reviewed papers, policy briefs and regular context reporting.
In order to support the research partner when they come on board in May 2019, IOM UK is conducting a mapping to better understand the country contexts. The mapping will support the research partner in identifying the scope and areas for the research. IOM would therefore like to recruit a consultant to support the design, collation, analysis and presentation of this mapping. The consultant can be based from home and IOM will support in finding local level consultants or data enumerators to perform the mapping in each of the three research countries (The Gambia, Guinea and Senegal (GGS)). This mapping must be run quickly but to a rigorous methodology, as it will be used by the research partner, who may in turn request further mapping. The research will need to be presented in English but will have to be implemented in French for Guinea and Senegal and in English for The Gambia. If the consultant is not bilingual IOM will support the translation. If this is required, a new TOR and contract will be initiated.

In the framework of Safety Support and Solutions in the Central Mediterranean Route Phase II, a programme funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID), IOM now invites Expressions of Interest (EOI) from research institutions or consortia for the provision of a large scale, 21-24 month study (including a 3-6 month inception period) in Gambia, Guinea and Senegal on “How and to what extent development interventions affect people’s migration aspirations, decision and movement, and on what timetable?” The research will require analysis at the individual, household and community level and will explore ongoing and new interventions and their effect on migration decision making. While the research will take place in each of the three countries, the study will not necessarily be the same in all three countries. The research will produce peer-reviewed papers, policy briefs and regular context reporting. IOM is particularly interested in partners with the appropriate language competency, ground reach and academic experience in the subject matter. IOM also will be interested to hear from partners with experience of using research to informing ongoing programming. The research partner will not just act as the lead on research, but also will take on the learning/critical friend function and will work with multiple stakeholders across the programme.

Call for CVs

IOM’s experience in numerous countries has found that integration is a two-way process, however, working best when both refugees and those in receiving communities have a good understanding of each other’s expectations, cultural differences, and practices. IOM UK therefore launched its Information Sessions in May 2016 to increase local knowledge of the refugee communities being resettled in the UK, thereby helping to reduce the adjustment period for refugees and supporting strong, appropriate integration services.
To support the continued success of this programme, IOM UK invites United Kingdom residents with knowledge about the culture, life, and society of Sudan, Iraq, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Somalia, or Syria to apply for the position of Cross-Cultural Facilitator. Cross-Cultural Facilitators will provide information sessions on the above refugee communities to local authorities and partners participating in resettlement support. We are looking for cross-cultural facilitators available on an on-call basis. Members of the Sudanese, Iraqi, Congolese, Somali, and Syrian communities and female candidates are highly encouraged to apply for this exciting position.
