Job Description and Requirements

Job Title:                 Junior IT Technical Support

Program:                 Cities Implementing Transparent Innovative, & Effective Solutions (CITIES)

Job Classification:  12 Months Fixed-Term Local Support Employee-

Reporting to:          IT Manager

BACKGROUND

The August 2015 passage of the Decentralization Law and the Municipalities Law indicated the Kingdom of Jordan’s increased focus on integrating municipalities into the governance framework, helping to increase democratic accountability and improve conditions in Jordanian communities. Drawing on prior United States Government (USG) and other donor analysis, as well as the Government of Jordan’s own governance programs, USAID has concluded that the urgent needs of Jordanian citizens — and other semi-permanent residents, including Syrian refugees — include access to basic services, economic opportunities, security and belonging, and inclusion by their government. The public-sector needs assistance to more efficiently deliver services and to engage more productively with diverse communities — in many cases including large populations of Syrians fleeing a war with no end in sight.

The objective of Jordan CITIES is to respond to identified needs using a systems-based approach in which all decision makers, stakeholders, and citizens in a community play a role. Technical assistance provided through Jordan CITIES will transfer functions to municipalities, emphasizing what works in practice and by law. To increase citizen responsiveness and foster resilience, CITIES will help key governorate and municipal stakeholders translate administrative reforms into community cohesion and stability.
