Project title:
Support to the Silk Routes Partnership for Migration under the Budapest Process

Job Location: Islamabad and Lahore, Pakistan
Duration: 10 months (with a possibility of extension)
Closing Date: 04 Dec 2015


The International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD), an international organisation with its headquarters in Vienna, Austria, is looking for qualified candidates to fill the above-mentioned position.

The project “Support to the Silk Routes Partnership for Migration” has been developed in the framework of the Budapest Process, one of the longest standing cooperation frameworks on migration for Europe and its eastern neighbours. Since 2010 the so called Silk Routes countries – among others Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan - joined the process as new participating states. 

The present project aims at contributing to the concrete implementation of the Silk Routes Partnership for Migration under the Budapest Process by strengthening the migration management capacities of the Silk Routes countries Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan. The project seeks to support the national institutions of Pakistan, namely the Ministry of Overseas Pakistan & Human Resource Development (MOPHRD) and the Labour & Human Resource Department of Punjab, and specifically the Bureau of Emigration and Overseas Employment (BOE&OE), by establishing, as a pilot, a Migrant Information Centre (MIC) in Islamabad and Lahore. Through collective collaboration of other key stakeholders, namely Overseas Pakistanis Foundation (OPF), Overseas Employment Cooperation (OEC), NAVTTC, Welfare Workers Fund (WWF), the Industrial Relations Institute (IRI), the centre aims to increase accessibility to general and specific information on migration, providing potential migrants with information and counselling, as well as raising awareness on irregular migration and its related risks.

The successful candidates will work as Migrant Information Centre Counsellors, supporting intending/potential migrants by providing them with accurate, reliable, up to date information on migration with the support from the Pakistani government authorities.
