Purpose of Activity/Assignment
Many surveys are carried out by government organizations, with the support and technical assistance of UNICEF. When countries adhere to the UNICEF protocols and recommendations and make use of the tools provided, the survey process goes very smoothly. However, in many countries, the provision of survey tools alone has not been sufficient without the additional support of experienced personnel providing technical assistance to the survey implementing partners.
UNICEF will continue to strengthen its survey technical support mechanism at the regional level so that country offices can receive the required level of technical assistance at critical stages of the survey and are in a better position to support the implementing partner.
Planning, preparation and fieldwork for new surveys – such as the BMZ endline/baseline surveys, or MICS – will be initiated in the region of West and Central Africa (WCA). UNICEF WCARO will, therefore, hire an experienced Senior Data Processing Consultant to provide necessary technical assistance to country offices and their partners at critical survey stages in a timely manner.
Under the overall supervision of the UNICEF Regional Monitoring Specialist (MICS and Other Surveys) in the Planning Monitoring and Research Section of UNICEF WCARO, the Senior Data Processing Consultant will work on supporting the data processing of different surveys conducted in the region of West and Central Africa (WCA), e.g. BMZ endline/baseline survey, MICS, etc.
