PUI oPt has been working on protection programs for a few years and has accumulated a lot of operational experience overtime and has positioned itself within the international community as a key player in this field. Since 2015, PUI is part of a consortium of 5 INGOs working against forcible transfer in the West Bank. Each agency contributes in a different way towards the consortium integrated protection approach. The Consortium generates a lot of information either collectively or at agency level. Such information can be policy papers, assessments, reports, fact sheets, maps, databases, statistics, etc. The Data Analyst position is placed within PUI and serves all 5 Consortium partners in an equal manner. Consortium partners aim at strengthening their analytical capacity and deliverables. Indeed, in close collaboration with the partners, the Consortium Secretariat (CS), the Consortium Management Unit (CMU) and the Consortium Advocacy Working Group (AWG), the DA looks at the information generated by agencies individually and/or collectively in order to determine how to best shape this information in a way that is useful to all.

-Chairing and coordinating the MEAL Task Force of the Consortium
-Managing and improving the IMS in place ensuring its functionality at Consortium level and allowing for further processing and analysis of relevant data
-Working with each key group of the Consortium (AWG, CMU, CS and Steering Committee) to identify, extract and formalize the information they need from the available data
-Contributing to the Consortium strategic thinking notably by substantiating relevant information in close collaboration with Consortium Technical Coordinator (CTC)
-Engaging with external stakeholders generating data such as OCHA, Clusters, etc.
