What we do
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) works worldwide to provide humanitarian assistance to people affected by conflict and armed violence.
We take action in response to emergencies and at the same time promote respect for international humanitarian law. We are an independent and neutral organization, and our mandate stems essentially from the Geneva Conventions of 1949.
We work closely with National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and with their International Federation in order to ensure a concerted, rational and rapid humanitarian response to the needs of the victims of armed conflict or any other situation of internal violence.
We direct and coordinate the international activities conducted in these situations.
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) considers the information it produces or receives as one of the key assets of the institution.
It enables the ICRC to fulfil its mandate in an optimal manner by ensuring the availability and sustainability of ICRC knowledge.
A well-functioning information management system is, however, increasingly challenging due to the multiple carriers and formats in which information is created, shared and stored, the mass of information produced and circulated as well as the evolving technologies tools used in information management.
The purpose of the post is to translate complex ideas and concepts linked to information management -including ICRC rules, guidelines and policies on archives and information management-
into creative and intelligible products, easy to consume for an internal audience, enhancing thereby the ICRC’s archives and information management.
The post thus also accompanies changes linked to the evolving information environment and technology as well as to the proper use of tools and platforms.
