Careers at JIPS

JIPS is always on the lookout for driven team players who share its vision that people affected by displacement should be able to achieve sustainable solutions supported by the well-informed and collective decisions of governments and the humanitarian and development sectors.

Whatever your role, you will find working at JIPS a memorable and formative experience. The organisation is proud of its diverse and inclusive working environment, which fosters personal initiative, collaboration, innovation and professional growth.

Database of consultants

JIPS maintains a database of experts with the skills and experience to support its collaborative profiling exercises. It uses the database to facilitate contact between field operations looking for consultants and people with a profile that matches the post on offer, and to identify potential coordinators for exercises it is actively supporting. Please note that the database is not a roster and membership does not guarantee employment.

JIPS is particularly interested in hearing from people competent in the following areas:

  • Ability to extract and evaluate information in complex situations
  • Technical experience in profiling, surveys or other data collection systems
  • Ability to plan and coordinate collaborative action among stakeholders
  • Experience in training, facilitation and participatory decision-making
  • Willingness and ability to work in a diverse team
  • Language skills, particularly French, Spanish and Arabic

Please consult JIPS’ competency framework for a more detailed breakdown of the skills, attributes and behaviours sought, and if you are interested in being considered for upcoming opportunities please send your CV and a short cover letter to


JIPS is always looking for talented and motivated applicants for internships. You will be expected to be able to demonstrate high-quality work in the domain you have applied for, and to be passionate about your area of specialisation.
