The UNICEF is looking for a National Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys Consultant to join the team and work in Beirut, Lebanon for 2020. The Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys (MICS) is an international household survey program developed and supported by UNICEF. MICS is designed to collect estimates of key indicators that are used to assess the situation of children and women. Over the past 20 years, MICS has evolved to respond to changing data needs, expanding from 28 indicators in the first round to more than 200 indicators in the current sixth round, and becoming a key source of data on child protection, early childhood education, and a major source of data on child health and nutrition. 


  1. Familiarize with the MICS documents (questionnaires, tools, and manuals).
  2. Provide technical and administrative support on the listing process and data collection process, as per the MICS guidelines.
  3. Ensure that the Ethical Protocol and other ethical recommendations are addressed in the survey implementation process and that all MICS related documents are shared with the Ethical Committee (which will be the Institutional Review Board (IRB) through UNICEF RO) on time for approval.
  4. Support CAS in overseeing each stage of the survey process and ensure that the MICS protocols and standards are followed, more specifically during training and field monitoring visits, which feeds into the over quality control of the implementation.
  5. Communicate regularly with the UNICEF CO to all MICS related issues in a timely manner.
  6. Ensure that all survey related documents and deliverables are properly archived throughout the survey process (for example: Memorandum of Understanding, Survey Plan and Budget, questionnaires, manuals, sample design, training/pre-test reports, expert reports, CAPI application, output and tabulation plan tables, syntaxes, datasets,).
  7. Participate in all Technical Committee meetings.
  8. Ensure that lessons learned, problems, and good practices are documented throughout the MICS process.


  1. A master’s degree in social science degree or any other relevant field.
  2. A minimum of 2 years of relevant professional experience in Proven experience working in the humanitarian field (e.g., NGO, INGO, or UN).

  5. Excellent analytical and writing skills.
  6. Proven experience with both quantitative and qualitative research and data analysis, specifically household surveys.

  8. Strong experience and knowledge in human rights issues, the human rights-based approach to programming, child rights, and child protection.

The United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund was created by the United Nations General Assembly on 11 December 1946, to provide emergency food and healthcare to children in countries that had been devastated by World War II. The Polish physician Ludwik Rajchman is widely regarded as the founder of UNICEF and served as its first chairman from 1946. Most of UNICEF's work is in the field, with a presence in 190 countries and territories. UNICEF's network of over 150 country offices, headquarters and other offices, and 34 National Committees carry out UNICEF's mission through programs developed with host governments. Seven regional offices provide technical assistance to country offices as needed.
