Job Title: Consultant (MM / Trainer (Art -based Intervention))
CFCV No.: CFCV2020 / 054
Organizational Unit: Migration Management (MM)
IOM Classification: Consultant
Type of Appointment: Consultant, 40 working days within a duration of 3 months

Since 2002, International Organization for Migration (IOM) has been working with the Federal Government of Nigeria to strengthen migration management through capacity-building, advisory services, and technical assistance on migration matters, including migration health and information, assisted voluntary returns, and counter-trafficking. Strong collaboration has been established with national migration stakeholders in order to enhance border management, fight trafficking in persons, reduce irregular migration, and mainstream migration in the country’s development plans.
Building on existing projects, IOM seeks to improve the access to trusted information sources and promotes informed decision making by sensitizing potential migrants on regular migration options, vulnerabilities to trafficking in persons (TiP) and risks associated with irregular migration. In addition, the project seeks to build institutional capacities and implement community-based actions in high-risk states of irregular migration such as Lagos, Edo and Delta.
In collaboration with the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN), the intervention aims to build the capacity of state and non-state actors to exercise evidence-based planning and monitoring of behavioural change communication to prevent TiP and Smuggling of Migrants (SoM). Secondly, through community-based actions (peer education, community dialogue, art-based competitions) and capacity building, the project aims to enable returnees, community members, government and non-government actors to take action to prevent exploitation and promote informed decision making on safe and regular migration pathways. The primary target audience is potential migrants aged 12-35 years from migration prone communities.
The secondary audience includes key opinion leaders within target communities such as families, religious and traditional leaders who play an influential role in the decision-making process of potential migrants. To achieve one of the outputs aimed by this project, IOM seeks to engage a consultant to conduct training on art-based activity for IOM partners and facilitate art-based intervention to strengthen support groups within the communities as an avenue to support returned migrants exposed to violence, exploitation and abuse on sharing first-hand experiences through community-dialogue and peer education platforms.
