Terms of Reference

The Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) is an international non-governmental organization with a mission to accompany, serve, and advocate for the rights of refugees and forcibly displaced people. The organization was founded in November 1980 and has a presence in over 50 countries. JRS undertakes services at national and regional levels with the support and guidance of an international office in Rome. The style of JRS service is human and spiritual, working in situations of greatest need, seeking the long-term wellbeing of refugees and displaced persons, while not neglecting their immediate or urgent needs.

JRS Thailand is seeking an IT consultant (this is not a salaried position) to redesign the front-end of our MySQL database, focusing on developing a web-based application (PHP), revamping the input fields to make them more efficient and less prone to errors, and working with our Program Manager to tweak reporting templates for compatibility with the new front-end.

Scope of Work:

The consultant will work with our Urban Refugee Program (URP) team in Bangkok to (1) understand the programmatic needs of the team, (2) redesign the front-end, (3) fully test the new front-end before taking it live, and (4) train URP staff on how to use the new front-end.

Selection Criteria:
