IMPACT Initiatives is a humanitarian NGO, based in Geneva, Switzerland. The organization manages several initiatives, which includes i) the REACH Initiative aimed at facilitating the development of information products that enhance the humanitarian community’s decision making and planning capacity for emergency, reconstruction and development contexts, ii) the PANDA Initiative aimed at directly supporting key aid actors in improving the effectiveness, efficiency, and efficacy of their programmes, and iii) the AGORA Initiative aimed at promoting localised and multi-sectoral aid action in support of the recovery and stabilisation of crisis-affected communities.

The IMPACT team comprises specialists in data collection, management and analysis and GIS. IMPACT was launched at the initiative of ACTED and the two organizations have a strong complementarity formalized in a global partnership, enabling IMPACT to benefit from ACTED’s operational support on its fields of intervention.

We are... currently looking for a Senior Projects and Funding Officer to oversee our project development and grant management activities in the Syria mission.


Senior Projects and Funding Officer

Amman, Jordan

Starting Date:
Mid-September 2024


After more than a decade of conflict, conditions in Syria remain volatile and marked by violence and
socioeconomic deterioration. The scale, complexity, and severity of humanitarian needs in Syria extends the necessity for up to date, timely, and accurate information. Evidence-based planning and programming remains paramount to ensure that the response adequately meets the needs of the most vulnerable people and is tailored to different realities across communities and over time. REACH has been conducting assessments on the humanitarian situation in Syria since 2013 and has since grown significantly as an actor in the response.

Broadly speaking, REACH Syria facilitates a humanitarian evidence base via four key research streams:

Monitoring of the humanitarian situation in Syria, including joint market monitoring to track prices of goods as per the survival minimum expenditure basket (SMEB);

Displacement tracking, through tracking the movement of IDPs and returnees;

Remote sensing activities, including market functionality, flood hazard assessments, etc;

Technical support to clusters, including thematic assessments and capacity building


Under the management of the Country Representative (CR), the Senior Projects and Funding Officer (SPFO) is responsible to support the identification, development and management of grants in the Syria mission. The ideal candidate would be eager to work within a dynamic and motivated team and will have a clear focus on project development as a tool to improve the efficacy of the humanitarian response in Syria.


The SPFO’s responsibilities include the following:

External relations
