Job Description

Signpost

Signpost is a digitally enabled responsive information service that supports and empowers populations in crisis, including asylum seekers, migrants, and people who have experienced violence. Our program equips people with information to understand their options so that they can make informed decisions about how to stay safe, get urgent care for acute problems, exercise their rights, and access services. It was developed by the IRC and Mercy Corps in 2015 to address asylum seekers’ and migrants’ pressing need for reliable information upon arrival to Greece, and is now active in 13 countries on 5 continents.

It meets communities on the digital platforms they already use and aims to deliver information that is contextualized to their specific needs and speaks to their lived realities. This approach draws on evidence that people are more likely to trust and act on information that is responsive to their needs, speaks to their lived realities, and that comes from “peers” rather than authority figures.

Signpost for Afghans

In recent weeks, the withdrawal of US forces from Afghanistan has enabled a rapid and expansive advance of Taliban forces. In response the US, UK, Canadian, and other governments have opened new pathways for refugee resettlement, visas, or humanitarian parole. Information about these pathways and associated processes is constantly evolving, and misunderstandings are widespread. IRC is launching its Signpost program in order to offer information to people inside and outside of Afghanistan on their rights and options. Content and accompanying individual support will be offered in English, Dari and Pashto so that people can make informed decisions for themselves and their family.
