The International Criminal Court has a project to migrate the current content repository (using SharePoint on premise) to the latest version. This would enable the Court to move to a more user-friendly platform and improve the experience of using the system for staff.
The objective of this project is the successful migration of all relevant content from the current SharePoint environment to the latest version, including complete migration of workflows, relevant web parts and existing access rights and security settings.
The project is ongoing, and we are currently looking for an individual who can work in the Information Management Unit (IMU). IMU is a unit within the Information Management Services Section (IMSS) within the Registry and defines frameworks and standards to effectively manage data.
