Position description

Ground Truth Solutions is looking for a French-speaking Analyst to work as an integral member of the core team. This position holds responsibility for assisting in the design, implementation, improvement and coordination of our projects by providing thoughtful, well-researched analysis.

About Ground Truth Solutions 

Our mission is to ensure that people affected by crises have a say in humanitarian action, from individual aid projects to global humanitarian reform. To achieve this, we collect feedback from people at the receiving end of aid. We challenge and encourage aid agencies to use this feedback to optimise their work. We influence policymakers, governments, and aid agencies to bring change to the humanitarian, health and environmental sectors.

About our work culture 

We are a committed team of people who take the responsibility of receiving funds to work toward aid reform seriously. We strive for excellence, constantly challenging the status quo (internally and externally), and conducting ourselves with discipline, creativity, curiosity, boldness and candour. We seek diverse viewpoints. We work hard, we communicate directly and along the way, we have fun.

We are a small, agile organisation trying to change the humanitarian system; not a bureaucracy. This has pros and cons. If you prefer being told what to do, working in a silo or following a manual, we may not be the organisation for you. Our culture best suits those who like being part of the solution, believing things can change and working creatively and collaboratively. If that sounds like an environment you would grow and thrive in, keep reading.
