Information Management Assistant CDI

Country: Senegal
Organization: International Organization for Migration
Closing date: 17 Nov 2023


Irregular migration along the Mediterranean route remains to be increasingly dangerous for migrants. Crossing the Mediterranean is by far the deadliest route, with over 26,924 missing migrants recorded since 2014 in addition to those who perish along the desert. In addition, migrants are exposed to various forms of violence, abuse and exploitation, including trafficking in persons, during their migration journey and end up with varying physical and mental health issues and worsened economic status.

To address these issues, IOM and member states have collaborated on migration management, focusing on enhancing protection, combatting irregular migration and human trafficking while promoting regular, safe and orderly migration. With support from the European Union (EU), IOM has developed targeted interventions in 16 countries (Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Côte d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guinea, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sudan and The Gambia) to protect the safety, dignity and rights of migrants along this important and dangerous migration route and to help in improving the reintegration of returnees through an innovative approach. This will be achieved through different types of interventions including protection and assistance to vulnerable and stranded migrants, provision of direct assistance through search and rescue support, identification, referral and direct assistance to vulnerable migrants, assistance for voluntary return, and support for sustainable reintegration. In the context of IOM’s global information management strategy, systems are being upgraded and expanded to ensure that all individuals assisted have their cases systematically stored and managed through a centralized, standardized system which allows unique cases to be tracked across different countries and access points. The expanded systems also include processes to improve the assistance workflow and monitoring of the return and reintegration experiences and outcomes of returnees, as well as the assistance provided to all migrants in vulnerable situations assisted by IOM.
