Project title:

Job Location: Brussels, Belgium
Duration: 20 months
Closing Date: 05 Aug 2020


Organisational Overview:
The International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) is an international organisation tasked with promoting innovative, comprehensive and sustainable migration policies. With 17 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:
The European Return and Reintegration Network (ERRIN) is an initiative of 15 Member States, FRONTEX and the European Commission.

Objective of ERRIN is to facilitate and support co-operation between European countries in the field of return and reintegration. ERRIN is funded by the European Commission (DG HOME). ICMPD is the implementing partner of this initiative. The ERRIN Programme Management Unit (PMU) is based in Brussels.

ERRIN has two work packages. One package focusses on innovation and project development, the other on contracting and managing joint reintegration services. Within this work package, ERRIN contracts post-arrival reintegration service delivery in third countries and makes these services available for its member states. Within this work package, ERRIN established a portfolio of service providers that cover over 40 countries. FRONTEX is preparing a joint reintegration service program to be operational by mid-2022 to replace the current ERRIN service delivery.

A centralised IT platform (RIAT) allows effective management of joint reintegration services and channels the communication between member states and contracted service providers. RIAT 1.0 is fully deployed and active, but at the same time still under development.

Please note that this position is subject to approval and availability of project funds.
