NATO is an alliance of countries from Europe and North America. It provides a unique link between these two continents, enabling them to consult and cooperate in the field of defence and security, and conduct multinational crisis-management operations together.

Security in our daily lives is key to our well-being. NATO’s purpose is to guarantee the freedom and security of its members through political and military means.

POLITICAL - NATO promotes democratic values and enables members to consult and cooperate on defence and security-related issues to solve problems, build trust and, in the long run, prevent conflict.

MILITARY - NATO is committed to the peaceful resolution of disputes. If diplomatic efforts fail, it has the military power to undertake crisis-management operations. These are carried out under the collective defence clause of NATO's founding treaty - Article 5 of the Washington Treaty or under a United Nations mandate, alone or in cooperation with other countries and international organisations.

1. SUMMARY

 

NATO’s Public Diplomacy efforts serve a vital function within the Alliance by communicating its purpose and priorities to audiences worldwide. In fulfilling this role, the Public Diplomacy Division (PDD) actively strengthens NATO’s public image, thereby fostering awareness and understanding of NATO’s policies and activities, and ultimately enhance trust in and support for the Alliance.

 

The Strategic Communications Unit (SCU) sits within PDD. The unit supports the Assistant Secretary General for Public Diplomacy in synchronising and coordinating NATO civilian and military communications to promote the political and military objectives of the Alliance to external audiences. In order to better understand and effectively reach NATO’s key audiences, and to mitigate hostile information activities aimed at the Alliance, NATO continues to develop its Information Environment Assessment (IEA) capabilities. Effective communications within a complicated information domain require systematic analysis and assessment of data gathered from the web, print and broadcast outlets, social media, polling data, and other publicly available sources – to enable NATO decision-makers and planners to better understand adversarial, as well as friendly, activities and impact in the information environment.

 

The Information Environment Assessment Analyst/Data Scientist will work with senior communicators across PDD and with colleagues in the military chain of command to exploit data mining tools to create analytical products that include audience segmentation and assessments to support strategic planning. He/she will apply descriptive, diagnostic, predictive and prescriptive analytics, collaborating with a wide team of NATO stakeholders as they adopt advanced analytics insights.

 

He/she will also analyse the information environment and provide Information Environment Assessment reports, in close coordination with different stakeholders, as required. He/she will be responsible for modelling complex problems which will, in turn, provide insight and identify opportunities through the use of statistical, algorithmic and visualisation techniques. He/she will be a storyteller (i.e. a person who can make the stories hidden in the data come alive for others), with the ability to effectively present evidence that may confirm, challenge or contradict assumptions held within the Organization, and contribute to effective recommendations.
