IMPACT Afghanistan is looking for Senior Assessment Officer to lead on AGORA research.

IMPACT is seeking an established professional to lead an exciting portfolio of area-based research; working with communities to identify priorities that directly inform the programming of implementing NGOs.

The ideal candidate will be eager to work in a dynamic organization with opportunities to build coordination skills whilst overseeing multi-sector assessments which inform a multi-year development project aimed at improving local governance, particularly around socio-economic development, access to public services, and government inclusivity.

AGORA activities have been implemented in Afghanistan since September 2018, providing an evidence base for local community leadership boundaries, stakeholders, and resource management in rural Afghanistan to inform a large, multi-year development project funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (NoMFA). The project aims to identify and map local communities, understand how they are structured and led, and catalogue the available shared resources and economic activities, in order to provide an evidence base for locally-led development initiatives and facilitate peaceful and prosperous early recovery following decades of conflict.  Resource and stakeholder mapping, detailed secondary data reviews, and multisector assessments are all activities conducted as part of AGORA to improve socioeconomic development, public service access, and local government inclusivity in communities in rural Afghanistan. The portfolio also includes small, proof-of-concept research projects related to local resource management in the face of climate change.

Under the supervision of the Country Coordinator in Afghanistan and IMPACT HQ in Geneva, the AGORA Senior Assessment Officer is responsible for the coordination and implementation of all assessments in Afghanistan falling under the AGORA project portfolio. He/she is also responsible for related coordination of logistics, partner engagement, information product drafting and project reporting.
