Following the escalation of the conflict in Ukraine on February 24th, 2022, military hostilities have caused widespread damage to infrastructure and houses, hundreds of civilian deaths, disrupted markets and essential services, and precipitated massive displacement within Ukraine and into neighbouring countries. Present in Ukraine since 2014, IMPACT is working across the country to provide humanitarian and early recovery/development actors with rigorous data and in-depth analysis to ensure aid interventions are timely, appropriate, and relevant.

The Collective Site Monitoring and CCCM thematic assessments are funded by UNHCR to provide critical Information Management (IM) services to the CCCM cluster, to fill information gaps and provide partners with data required for planning and programming of an effective response. To this end, the unit is conducting a continuous mapping of collective sites in Ukraine, the monthly Collective Site Monitoring (CSM) survey and as well as in-depth Durable Solutions Assessments in the collective sites. The CSM survey aims to provide the CCCM and other relevant partners with regularly updated information on the number, needs and intentions of displaced households living in collective sites across Ukraine. The CCCM thematic assessments aim to provide a holistic understanding on the progress and barriers for access to durable solutions for people living in the collective sites.


IMPACT is seeking a candidate, who will be responsible for implementation of all the stages of assessments. The Assessment Officer will be responsible for implementing the CSM and CCCM thematic assessments, under the supervision of the Senior Assessment Officer.

The overall goal of the Assessment Officer will be to ensure the smooth running of activities, and he/she will be responsible for the implementation and completion of the various work streams within the unit.
