Trainer Assistance Information Systems

Training specialist

on Assistance Division's information systems




Purpose of the post


The Assistance Division is providing field operations with strategic support and field expertise in 4 key areas: Economic security, Health care services, Water & Habitat, as well as Weapon Contamination. To this end, teams use various applications to collect and analyse data, implement programmes and monitor their progress. These tools allow to translate data into usable insights to strengthen the management of operational activities, strategy and transversal decision-making.


In September 2016, the ICRC has approved a data management model including all transactional data and statistical data from reporting tools, the organization of data management roles, and specific data governance roles associated with the model. This model should ensure a coherent and coordinated approach in order to achieve optimal organisation of data management functions across different levels of the organisation and maximise cross-métier synergies – all with the aim of bringing value out of data at all levels of the ICRC. It informs and guides all strategies and plans to organize new functions related to data management or delocalize, move and regroup the existing ones in the coming years. To implement the data management model, the Assistance Division has established a 4-year roadmap for improving and organizing the way it manages and uses its data, and ensuring optimal quality.
