Guided by the executive committee and advisory group, JIPS’ passionate and skilled team makes its global work possible. The organisation has two core units with dedicated management positions – field support & capacity building, and information management & innovation – and further staff working in coordination & management, communications & advocacy and grants & budget management.
JIPS’ team is guided by three core values:
The coordination & management team is responsible for JIPS’ overall leadership.
Natalia is in charge of JIPS’ overall coordination, and supervises the strategic and day-to-day management of the service. She oversees and maintains JIPS’ role as a global profiling hub and leads its knowledge management, constantly seeking to build and strengthen partnerships to increase the impact of its work on the ground.
The field support and capacity-building unit provides services to partners on the ground and develops profiling tools, guides and other products for governments and humanitarian and development bodies.
Isis leads the development and implementation of JIPS’ Field Support & Capacity Building strategy across its three goals of Urban Profiling, Durable Solutions and Capacity Building of for locally-owned processes, and she manages the delivery of JIPS support and advice to stakeholders working in displacement affected contexts. With her background on urbanism and community engagement, she also contributes to the refining of profiling processes and tools in urban areas and leads JIPS’ work on community engagement, enhancing the participation of displacement-affected communities in data collection, analysis and development of recommendations.
Margharita coordinates the delivery of JIPS’ technical advice and capacity-building support to field partners, and handles requests for its services. She also helps to expand its practices by refining knowledge and tools in specialised areas, and provides direct support to country operations.
The information management & innovation unit develops tools, guidance, training and partnerships that improve the quality of JIPS’ support. It also evolves ways to manage the large amounts of data that profiling generates, and to overcome the recurring challenges practitioners face.
Wilhelmina leads the development and implementation of JIPS’ information management strategy and promotes innovation in its work processes. She oversees the maintenance and improvement of the organisation’s methods, tools and training, and contributes to its role as global profiling hub. She also leads the development of strategic partnerships with other information management organisations.
Melissa contributes to improving JIPS’ tools with a focus on profiling in urban settings. She also enhances the organisation’s profiling support by developing and refining its data collection approaches through qualitative methods, and working to improve data analysis.
The communications & advocacy team disseminates information about JIPS’ work to a wide range of audiences via different channels and tools, creating an open and engaging dynamic with stakeholders and practitioners in the field.
