The International Criminal Court has moved to its Permanent Premises at the beginning of 2016. Together with this move, it was necessary to set up a new audio visual recording system for the new courtrooms that allowed for the creation, maintenance and archive of high definition digital media files. In order to achieve this, the Digital Recording Project works closely with stakeholders across the various Organs of the Court, and primarily with the following Sections, Court Management Section, Information Management Services Section, and Public Information and Outreach Section. The project is ongoing, and we are currently looking for an individual who can work in the Project Management Office. He/she will be directly reporting to the Project Manager and will be supporting in the execution of the project activities.
