Job Description
The Innovation and Planning Agency is looking for a National Information Manager (w/m/d) to support the Tunisian Returnees Program (TRP) in Tunisia. The TRP is funded by the German International Cooperation (GIZ) and will be implemented as of January 2021 by GESA gGmbH in Germany and through its implementing partner IPA in Tunisia. The program assists the reintegration of forcefully returned Tunisian migrants from Germany in their country of origin. The aim of the project is to ensure that the returnees successfully reintegrate despite the circumstances of their return.
The pre-departure strategy (i.e. procedures and protocols) for potential returnees to ensure adequate preparation of the returnees is implemented by the GESA mandate in Germany. In Tunisia the IPA project team will engage with and process returnees on the base of a sequenced case management system analyzing individual reintegration needs and potentials which informs psychosocial-related support and referrals to social or further service providers.
Under the supervision of the International Project Coordinator, the National Information Manager is based in Tunis with work related missions to Sfax, acts as a information focal point and will work across a wide range of communications tasks.

The National Information Manager will ensure with the support of the project team a country-wide systematized information collection from an initial stakeholder mapping. He/she will also support the team members to further develop and properly use a case management filing system.
