ORGANIZATIONAL CONTEXT: Job holders are typically required to go beyond the established procedures demonstrating capacity in elaborating and producing complex security information analysis, formulating solid judgements and well-founded predictions to inform strategic decision-making and proposing innovations in security information management techniques.

Job holders have credible authoritative capacity with independent responsibility in originationg specific initiatives and developing new partnerships. At this level, the job holders typically serve as expert or team leader, thus the impact of their work affects the delivery of the overalL security information management service.
DRC CONTEXT: The security situation in the east of the territory has continued to deteriorate to a much higher level than in previous months, with kidnappings of humanitarian workers, attacks on humanitarian convoys, and the killing of civilians in villages in the east and even in IDP camps in some provinces. It should also be noted that the ADF’s capacity to cause harm ,has increased in Ituri, with the use of IEDs, and that the partitioning of certain armed groups has led to the creation of smaller sub-groups, which makes it increasingly difficult to set up a reliable security structure and is rapidly beginning to reduce the humanitarian space. It is also important to note the proliferation of arms that continues to increase in these provinces, which have been abandoned by the Congolese government, which is unable, despite the state of siege, to eradicate the growing threats posed by the various armed groups. The pre-election period is fast approaching, and this will certainly influence the risk of further insecurity in the coming montHs until the possible election of 2023. To this end, it would be advisable to re-evaluate the level of the analyst at a higher level and thus may Justify the level 2 CST as desired.
