MapAction is a charity existing to provide mapping, geospatial and information management services to humanitarian emergencies. A leader in its field, MapAction has an inspirational team of highly skilled volunteers backed up by a specialised staff team to provide humanitarian emergency response, preparedness, early anticipation activities and the delivery of training services worldwide. The overall aim is to save lives and minimise suffering by ensuring that humanitarian aid is delivered as effectively and efficiently as possible, getting to where it is needed most, fast.
MapAction has a strong reputation for excellent service delivery and a collaborative approach. It is a technical partner of several United Nations and regional disaster management agencies, with ongoing funding from several humanitarian donor governments, trusts and foundations. With a team of creative, compassionate and committed people and a strong team spirit, we remain small enough that you will quickly come to know and respect what everyone contributes, as they will you. We pull together to do what is needed.
What will you do?
Training is a key component of MapAction’s output and is central to our effectiveness as an organisation. This role covers four key areas. First, the design and delivery of relevant training to the MapAction team that maintains and enhances our capability to respond to humanitarian emergencies and deliver our outputs. Second, the design and delivery of bespoke, relevant and innovative Information Management and Geospatial training to external partners. Third, the management and coordination of training plans, resources and information. Fourth, evaluating and evolving our training offer to ensure our internal and external training activities are both relevant and used.
You will do this by coordinating with multiple internal (volunteer and staff) and external stakeholders, working to understand the needs and requirements of the training audience; designing bespoke courses and exercises to meet these needs. You will work in small teams, drawing on MapAction subject matter experts to organise and deliver training packages both in person and online, to a variety of international organisations and partners. You will be the focal point for the internal training curriculum and competencies framework ensuring MapAction personnel are trained to the highest standards in Geospatial and Information Management and will be pivotal in delivering the annual MapAction simulation exercise. Your work will be committed to supporting MapAction’s multi-year strategy, working with the Head of MEAL to monitor activity and outputs, evaluating their effectiveness and success and applying this knowledge to improve our training offer to partners and our internal training curriculum.
You will be an effective and engaging trainer and communicator, with strong relationship management and interpersonal skills, and an initiative-driven approach. You will enjoy working closely with colleagues in the MapAction volunteer team and work closely with the Operations and Technical teams to ensure our training events are delivered to the highest standards. You will be happy using your numeracy skills and comfortable creating and working with spreadsheets.
