The ESR Secretariat needs a dedicated and diverse team of professionals to carry out its functions effectively and efficiently. This means that the ESR must list and define position/vacancies in order of work flow and hire individuals to fill in those positions. To get some leads on this, see the document below.
As the situation room begins the process of establishing itself as a credible source of information on electoral processes, it is going to need to collaborate and build partnerships with other organizations and institutions that work in the governance space in-order to be share information and create a rapid response mechanism. To do this, the ESR will have to formally write and introduce itself to various partners. Here is a sample introductory note.
The staff hired by the Election Situation Room must be aware of their roles and responsibilities and have the ability to work in a fast paced environment. This means that only highly competent and qualified individuals should be hired for the lead and assistant roles defined in the ESR Structure of operation. Refer to the scope of work guide below.
