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.
The cross programme unit, with their expertises in providing policy and technical advisory services and in grants and budget management, supports JIPS across the different units and the various projects.
Corina works across JIPS’ core units and in collaboration with its coordinator to support on strategic partnership building and nurturing, fundraising, and management processes. She also oversees JIPS’ communications and issue advocacy efforts as well as the organization’s branding.
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.
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.
