The International NGO Safety Organisation (INSO) is an international charity that supports humanitarian programming and access in volatile contexts.
We provide NGOs with a range of free services including real-time incident tracking, analytical reports, safety related data and mapping, crisis management support, staff orientations and contextualized training.
Our services help NGOs with their risk management responsibilities and support strategic analysis, evidence-based programming and humanitarian access at all levels.
Founded in 2011, we have grown quickly from innovative start-up to become a globally recognized charity and a valued component of the coordination architecture.
Today, we provide daily support to more than 950 national and international NGOs across most of the world’s conflict zones and have developed a strong reputation for performance, principles, and professionalism.
Please note that any start date is provisional and deployment may be delayed due to COVID-19 related travel bans and regulations. INSO suspended all international duty travel, including international deployments, on 16th March 2020 until further notice. As the situation is evolving, we will be re-evaluating the travel suspension on a regular basis.
As we continue to grow, we are now seeking a qualified and experienced individual to join our HQ team as a Global Communications Manager.
The post offers an exciting opportunity to play a broad, creative, and influential role in advancing the cause of the humanitarian safety to a global audience.
The main function of the post is to capture and communicate our impact to a wide range of stakeholders in order to raise awareness and support.
These will include NGOs (our beneficiaries), our institutional donors (like ECHO, DFID and USAID), related and peer entities (like the UN and Coordinating Bodies), host Governments and other influencers and stakeholders including academia, researchers and the general public.
As the first communications post at INSO, we need an energetic, hands-on all-rounder, capable of conceiving and executing through a variety of communication channels and the professional determination to build from the ground up.
We welcome all applications, but the post would ideally suit someone already working in communications for an NGO or an international organisation and with some knowledge of INSO, the humanitarian safety architecture and/or conflict analysis.
The Global Communication Manager is an international staff post based in The Hague headquarters with frequent travel to field offices. She/he reports to the Executive Director and can draw on the support of an in-house Information Manager. She/he can expect to recruit two support staff by 2023 to complete the team.
