Заступник/ця Радника з безпеки (Схід) в м. Дніпро

Organisation Background

Founded in 2011, the International NGO Safety Organisation (INSO) is an international NGO that supports humanitarian aid workers by establishing safety coordination platforms in insecure contexts. INSO provides registered NGOs with a range of free services, including real-time incident tracking, analytical reports, safety-related data and mapping, crisis management support, staff orientations, and training.

INSO provides daily support to more than 1200 NGOs operating in 18 of the world’s most insecure countries.

INSO is registered in the Netherlands, with its headquarters based in The Hague, the international city of peace and justice.

INSO Ukraine

INSO Ukraine opened in 2015. Since the full-scale Russian invasion in February 2022, it has rapidly expanded to a complete platform serving the needs of NGOs in a fast-evolving conflict. Currently, more than 240 national and international NGOs receive INSO services, in both Ukrainian and English, including information, analysis and advice through a wide range of written products, meetings and briefings, tailored assessments, crisis support, and a broad range of training courses. Our country office is in Kyiv, supported by field offices in Lviv, Dnipro, and Odesa.

In mid-2023, INSO opened a Humanitarian Training Centre close to Lviv City, delivering immersive HEIST courses and conducting pioneering research on stress exposure and learning for humanitarians. The scale and intensity of the conflict in Ukraine continue to pose significant humanitarian safety challenges, particularly around heavily-contested frontline areas where the humanitarian footprint has expanded since 2023. As part of INSO Ukraine, you will play a key role in supporting NGOs and helping aid reach people in need in a safer manner, while at the same time being part of a vibrant and growing humanitarian community bringing together experiences from across the globe.
