Job Description

CFCV 2017 ‐ 40


In 2015 and 2016 the EC adopted the European Agenda on Migration setting out a number of measures to address the short, medium and long‐term challenges posed by the increasing migratory flows. Considering the high number of fatalities related to the perilous journeys to Europe, with the deaths toll reaching unprecedented numbers, the EU decided to establish specific measures to support Italy and Greece in their management of the migration flows, specifically in relation to asylum.   The measures envisaged are various, from the increase of first reception capacities to the hotspot approach and return mechanisms. One of the key measures envisaged is the relocation of asylum seekers to other EU MS. Two Council decisions  ‐ (EU) 2015/1523 of 14 September 2015 and (EU) 2015/1601 of 22 September 2015 ‐ established the Relocation Programme. The subsequent Roadmap for Italy, on the operational aspects of the relocation procedures for asylum seekers who landed in Italy is the basis of the implementation of the project in caption.   Given IOM’s wide experience with resettlement and relocation, the Organization was asked by the Italian Government to provide support in the relocation of 10,000 asylum seekers over two years. IOM is involved in the preparation of the beneficiaries for their new life in the country of relocation, as well as in their movement to their country of destination.   Also, IOM is tasked with providing inputs on how to best implement similar operations through assessing the different implementation steps. These recommendations will also be shared with the EC.   In view of the above, among the activities to be carried out by IOM it emerges the need to ensure all data regarding project’s beneficiaries is stored and analysed for monitoring and knowledge sharing purposes.   The Organisation is therefore looking for a consultant with sound experience in IT related issues.



Under the overall coordination of the Director, Coordinating Mission for the Mediterranean, Chief of Mission for Italy and Malta, and Representative to the Holy See, the direct supervision of the Project Manager of the project “Actions to support the Italian Government for the transfer of asylum seekers toother European countries – EUREL”, AMIF 2014‐2020, Special cases”, the Consultant will be responsible for the following tasks:
