Background of the project 

The Inter-agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE) is recruiting a consultant to help establish and manage a new ‘Education in Emergencies (EiE) Virtual Center’, designed to enhance engagement of education in emergencies (EiE) stakeholders around the world. The EiE Virtual Center will have an initial focus on distance education in emergencies and will have two components: 1. a database of curated resources, and 2. a platform for peer-to-peer communications and moderated discussions on the full range of education in emergencies topics in many languages. The consultant will primarily focus on the communications platform component of the EiE Virtual Center, along with some other member engagement and communications activities.

The consultant will work closely with all members of the INEE Secretariat, especially the Coordinator for Membership Engagement and the Coordinator for Knowledge Management, and will report to the Senior Coordinator for Communications. The consultant will be contracted by the International Rescue Committee (IRC) on behalf of INEE and will work roughly 20 days per month, from ASAP through September 2021.
