Organisational Overview:
The International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) is an international organisation tasked with promoting innovative, comprehensive and sustainable migration policies. With 18 Member States and over 60 projects active throughout Europe, Africa, Asia and Latin America, ICMPD is a growing and ever-more relevant presence in its field. The organisation’s greatest assets are its 200+ staff members, who personify its values of commitment, integrity, partnership, respect, and innovation in actions and decisions.

Project Overview:
ICMPD is inviting all interested candidates to apply for the MRC Counsellor for the project Improving Migration Management. One component of this project is supporting the operationalisation of the Migrant Resource Centres (MRCs) in Dhaka and Cumilla, Bangladesh.

The MRCs are set-up in partnership with the Ministry of Expatriates Welfare and Overseas Employment and integrated into the work and operation of the District Employment and Manpower Office (DEMOs) under the Bureau of Manpower, Employment and Training. MRCs aim to increase the public’s accessibility to general and specific information on migration, provide potential migrants with information and counselling using various platforms, link up with relevant government agencies for services, raise awareness on irregular migration and its related risks, and collaborate with other migration-related stakeholders such as the academia and civil society to provide holistic and coherent information and guidance to the public and outgoing migrants on migration. Furthermore, MRCs engage with various Technical Training Centres, local government institutions, media and other local actors in orientation workshops, courtyard meetings, miking and media campaigns to cascade migration-related information to various localities. The MRCs also support the DEMOs in their daily operation, such as assisting in the screening of potential female migrants and providing pre-departure briefings to prospective migrant workers while undergoing DEMO processes and requirements.

In this regard, ICMPD is seeking applications from qualified and results-oriented Bangladeshi citizens for the position of the MRC Counsellor. The position is based in Dhaka or Cumilla with frequent travel within the country.
