Special Notice

• This Temporary Job Opening (TJO) is opened to internal and external candidates. The initial duration of the temporary appointment/assignment is until 14 May 2019; the selected candidate is expected to start from 12 December 2018. All posts are subject to availability of funding.
• A current staff member who holds a fixed-term, permanent or continuing appointment may apply for temporary positions no more than one level above his or her current grade. However, a current staff member who holds an appointment at the G-6 or G-7 level may also apply to temporary positions in the Professional category up to and including the P-3 level, subject to meeting all eligibility and other requirements for the position. A staff member holding a temporary appointment shall be regarded as an external candidate when applying for other positions, and may apply for other temporary positions at any level, subject to section 5.7 below and staff rule 4.16 (b) (ii). Therefore, a staff member holding a temporary appointment in the General Service or related categories may only apply to positions within those categories. For full information on eligibility requirements, please refer to section 5 of ST/AI/2010/4Rev.1 on Temporary Appointments. In its resolution 66/234, the General Assembly further “stressed that the Secretary-General should not recur to the practice of temporarily filling posts in the Professional and higher categories with General Service staff members who have not passed the General Service to Professional category examination other than on an exceptional basis, and requests the Secretary-General to ensure that temporary occupation of such posts by the General Service staff shall not exceed a period of one year, effective 1 January 2013…” Consequently, eligible candidates in the General Service or related categories for temporary job openings in the Professional category that have not passed the competitive examination may be selected only on an exceptional basis endorsed by the Office of Human Resources Management where no other suitable candidate could be identified.
• Upon separation from service, including, but not limited to, expiration or termination of, or resignation from, a fixed-term, continuing or permanent appointment, a former staff member will be ineligible for re-employment on the basis of a temporary appointment for a period of 31 days following the separation. In the case of separation from service on retirement, a former staff member will be ineligible for re-employment for a period of three months following the separation. This equally applies, mutatis mutandis, with respect to a former or current staff member who has held or holds an appointment in another entity applying the United Nations Staff Regulations and Rules and who applies for a temporary position with the Secretariat.
• Retirees above the mandatory age of separation who wish to be considered for the current temporary job opening must indicate the reason for their last separation as “retirement.” Such retirees shall not be employed by the Organization, unless (a) the operational requirements of the Organization cannot be met by staff members who are qualified and available to perform the required functions; and (b) the proposed employment would not adversely affect the career development or redeployment opportunities of other staff members and represents both a cost-effective and operationally sound solution to meet the needs of the service.
• While this temporary assignment may provide the successful applicant with an opportunity to gain new work experience, the selection for this position is for a limited period and has no bearing on the future incumbency of the post. An external candidate selected for this position is bound by the prevailing condition of the staff selection system under ST/AI/2010/3, as amended, and ST/AI/2010/4/Rev.1. A staff member holding a temporary appointment who is recruited in the Professional and above categories on a temporary appointment, and placed on a position authorized for one year or longer may not apply for or be reappointed to his/her current position within six months of the end of his/her current service. This provision does not apply to staff members holding temporary appointments and placed on positions authorized for one year or more in duty stations authorized for peacekeeping operations or special political missions.
• The expression “Internal candidates”, shall mean staff members who have been recruited after a competitive examination under staff rule 4.16 or after the advice of a central review body under staff rule 4.15.
• Please note that candidates will be required to meet the requirements of Article 101, paragraph 3, of the Charter as well as the requirements of the position. The United Nations is committed to the highest standards of efficiency, competence and integrity for all its human resources, including but not limited to respect for international human rights and humanitarian law. Candidates may be subject to screening against these standards, including but not limited to whether they have committed, or are alleged to have committed criminal offences and/or violations of international human rights law and international humanitarian law.
• For information on special post allowance, please refer to ST/AI/1999/17. For more details on the administration of temporary appointments please refer to ST/AI/2010/4/Rev.1.
• The Staff Regulations, Staff Rules and administrative issuances governing staff appointments can be viewed at: http://www.un.org/hr_handbook/English
• Staff members of the United Nations common system organizations who will reach the mandatory age of separation or retirement within the duration of the current temporary need period are not eligible to apply.
• Staff members are not eligible to apply for the current temporary job opening if they are unable to serve the specified duration of temporary need before reaching the mandatory age of separation. Submitting an application or selection for the current temporary job opening does not delay or increase the mandatory age of separation.

United Nations Considerations

According to article 101, paragraph 3, of the Charter of the United Nations, the paramount consideration in the employment of the staff is the necessity of securing the highest standards of efficiency, competence, and integrity. Candidates will not be considered for employment with the United Nations if they have committed violations of international human rights law, violations of international humanitarian law, sexual exploitation or sexual abuse, or crimes other than minor traffic offences, or if there are reasonable grounds to believe that they have been involved in the commission of any of these acts. The term “sexual exploitation” means any actual or attempted abuse of a position of vulnerability, differential power, or trust, for sexual purposes, including, but not limited to, profiting monetarily, socially or politically from the sexual exploitation of another. The term “sexual abuse” means the actual or threatened physical intrusion of a sexual nature, whether by force or under unequal or coercive conditions.
Due regard will be paid to the importance of recruiting the staff on as wide a geographical basis as possible. The United Nations places no restrictions on the eligibility of men and women to participate in any capacity and under conditions of equality in its principal and subsidiary organs. The United Nations Secretariat is a non-smoking environment.
Applicants are urged to follow carefully all instructions available in the online recruitment platform, inspira.

    PFP has the mandate to promote flexible and quality funds for UNICEF and this role directly contributes to increase of unrestricted emergency funds. The final report will describe the drive and progress made by different Natcoms to increase their capacity to contribute to the Global Humanitarian Thematic Fund. It will also include recommendations for the next steps on promoting and raising further quality funding.

    Switzerland: Policy Specialist – Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Movement

    Sep 162018
     

    Organization: Scaling Up Nutrition
    Country: Switzerland
    Closing date: 23 Sep 2018

    Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Movement Secretariat – Country Liaison Team

    Vacancy code: VA/2018/B5119/16376

    Level: ICS-10
    Duty station: Geneva, Switzerland
    Contract type: International ICA
    Contract level: IICA-2
    Duration: Open-ended

    Application period: 07-Sep-2018 to 23-Sep-2018

    Applications to vacancies must be received before midnight Copenhagen time (CET) on the closing date of the announcement.

    Background Information – Job Specific

    Launched in September 2010, the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Movement catalyses collective action towards ending malnutrition in all its forms. Led by 60 SUN Countries and the Indian States of Jharkhand, Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh, the SUN Movement is an unprecedented effort to bring together stakeholders – governments, national and international civil society organisations, businesses, the UN system, researchers and scientists across different sectors – to create an enabling environment to improve nutrition.

    SUN countries, and all stakeholders in the Movement are committed to scaling up nutrition, by strengthening four strategic processes at country-level as set out in the SUN Movement Strategy and Roadmap 2016-2020:

    1. Expanding and sustaining an enabling political environment;
    2. Prioritising effective actions that contribute to good nutrition;
    3. Implementing actions aligned with national common results frameworks;
    4. Effectively using, and significantly increasing, financial resources for nutrition.

    The SUN Movement Secretariat was established in 2012 as a small coordinating mechanism to support SUN countries, helping them connect with each other for support and advice, and ensuring coordinated and coherent support from actors in a series of networks. The Secretariat also maintains momentum across the SUN Movement, catalyzing interest and action in new or problematic nutrition issues. Finally, the Secretariat tracks and communicates the progress made by each SUN country, and the Movement as a whole.

    The SUN Movement Coordinator, a UN Assistant Secretary General, oversees implementation of the Strategy and Roadmap, leads the SUN Movement Secretariat and represents the SUN Movement globally. Day-to-day management of the Secretariat is the responsibility of the Director.

    Functional Resposibilities

    Central to the SUN Movement Secretariat, and reporting to the Coordinator of the Country Liaison Team, is a team of Policy Specialists who liaise with SUN countries.

    Each Specialist is responsible for establishing and maintaining a dynamic working relationship with 8-10 SUN countries. The Specialist’s primary contact in each SUN country is a SUN Focal Point. Specialists must also work closely with UN agencies, civil society organizations, businesses, academics and other development partners active in each country. Specialists actively assist SUN Focal Points, and the multi-stakeholder platforms they work with, to: achieve their objectives, implement national nutrition plans, strengthen policy, legislation, institutions and actions for improved nutritionat country level.

    Policy specialists ensure that the broader national or international community of stakeholders is aware of the challenges each SUN country is facing, and mobilized to provide technical assistance. Specialists support the stakeholders in creating and strengthening opportunities in each country for accelerating progress, scaling up results, share and learn. Like all in the SUN Movement, Specialists are vigilant that the SUN Movement’s principles are always upheld, everywhere.

    Policy Specialists must therefore be in frequent contact with a large and diverse network of in-country stakeholders, primarily via telephone, teleconference, and email – often in different time zones. They must be able to sustain productive exchanges with actors that are busy, and whose means of communication can be limited. Specialists also travel periodically to the countries in their portfolio, or to selected global events. Specialists produce high-quality written or oral briefs for members of SUN Networks, the SUN Coordinator and the Secretariat, and external audiences. These briefs should make clear recommendations based on political-economy analysis, data and insights into policy processes.

    Policy Specialists are expected to be proactive, innovative, entrepreneurial, agile and result oriented, demonstrating a high standard of professionalism and integrity.

    Policy Specialists have the following responsibilities in support of a portfolio of SUN Countries

    A. Support SUN Countries including:

    • Support with their strategies and priorities;
    • Support (further) development of a stakeholder platform that is aligned and focused on implementation of scalable and replicable results;
    • Support with the Identification and encouragement of opportunities for government and other actors to accelerate impact in-country;
    • Support peer-to-peer learning between SUN Countries
    • Assist with the facilitation of virtual exchanges or meetings among groups of SUN Countries facing similar nutritional challenges, among those in comparable contexts, or neighbors in Regional Economic Communities;
    • In response to SUN Countries’ requests, broker access to effective and predictable support from within the Movement, and maintain up-to-date records of country needs and priorities;
    • Identify and highlight common, or recurring capacity gaps and support to overcome them and prevent new gaps

    B. Track and analyze country progress, challenges and opportunities, including:

    • Assist with the Movement’s Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability and Learning system;
    • Assist SUN countries with organizing and conducting their annual Joint Assessment ensuring their timely and quality participation;
    • Assist with the SUN Movement Annual Progress Report, country briefs, case studies, and the SUN website by compiling and analyzing country information, and documenting lessons learnt on effective multi-sectoral and multi-stakeholder approaches to improving nutrition;
    • Assist with other documents as required by SUN Countries, Networks, the Executive Committee, and Lead Group

    Education

    Advanced university degree (Master or equivalent) in Political Science, Social Sciences, Development, International relations or related fields. A Bachelor degree with two additional years of relevant experience may be acceptable in lieu of the advanced degree.

    Experience

    At least five years (seven years with bachelor’s degree) of progressively responsible professional experience in an international working environment, is required.

    At least three years of field experience in multi-sector programmes and policies, in food and nutrition security, food systems, trade, responsible business, gender equity or local government is desirable.
    Understanding of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is desirable.

    Hands-on experience in SUN country-owned and country-driven initiatives for development is desirable
    Skills: Proficiency in Microsoft Office, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and Adobe Acrobat Reader is required.

    Abililty to strengthen team spirit and impact.
    Demonstrated ability to collaborate across one or more dispersed and diverse teams.

    Organization: UN Children’s Fund
    Country: Switzerland
    Closing date: 23 Sep 2018

    UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

    Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

    And we never give up.

    For every child, hope

    UNICEF’s Division of Private Fundraising and Partnerships (PFP) maximizes income and influence from the private sector (individual supporters and donors, philanthropists, foundations and corporates) to deliver results for children through fundraising, engagement and partnerships. In order to do, it provides policies, procedures and guidance to UNICEF country offices and National Committees to maximize these efforts in efficient and effective ways. This is done through UNICEF’s Regulatory Framework (RF).

    How can you make a difference?

    To coordinate PFP’s stock taking of regulatory content it owns and prepare it for migration into the organizational platform. This includes identification of what regulatory content is policy, procedure, guidance or other; who the target audience is, e.g. UNICEF, National Committees, external partners, or governments; and schedule for update and migration.

    MAIN TASKS AND DELIVERABLES:

    Under the supervision of the Senior Adviser, Risk and Change Management in the Operations and Finance Section of PFP, the incumbent will:

    1. Regulatory content inventory:

    a. Review and organize the recently compiled inventory of PFP regulatory content, eliminating duplicates and identifying business owners.

    b. Discuss with each business owner the currency of the content. Is it current? Does it need minor or major upgrades? Agree on when these updates will be done. Agree on when migration to RF platform can be done.

    c. Coordinate with internal communications team the allocation of work with respect to migration of regulatory content to RF platform. Migration itself will be performed by that team.

    d. Deliverable: Schedule of all PFP regulatory content with timeline for update and migration to organizational template and RF platform.

    e. Deliverable: Migration of all identified PFP regulatory content to RF platform.

    2. Simplification and improved efficiencies:

    a. In parallel, there is work being performed to identify areas of work that could benefit from simplification to improve efficiencies. Incumbent is expected to dialogue with the business owners of proposed improvements, advocate for change and come to agreement on what changes are possible. While integration of changes into policy/procedures will be led by the business owner, the incumbent will facilitate dialogue with other Divisions if needed.

    b. Deliverable: Schedule tracking efficiency ideas for implementation, with dates of when new regulatory documents will be published.

    c. Deliverable: Communication drafts which promote efficiencies adopted.

    3. Update to PFP intranet:

    a. Coordinate update of links and intranet pages with internal communications team. We are currently unaligned with HQ in some areas on how regulatory content is presented on the intranet, PDF vs HTML text. Facilitate discussion with the owning division of the RF to come to an agreement on how content is presented.

    b. Deliverable: For each migrated document to the RF platform, the relevant link/page on the PFP intranet is updated.

    4. Transition of content to new template. This will be dependent on volume and time available, to be agreed upon with the Senior Adviser:

    a. Where content is current, reconstruct the current content into the organizational template as a zero draft for the business owner to perform the final edit on continued integrity of the content.

    b. Deliverable: Number of policy/procedure drafts for business owner finalization.

  • Operations and Finance
  • Country relations
  • Private sector fundraising
  • Private sector engagement
  • Communications
  • Human resources

    BAAG – The British & Irish Agencies Afghanistan Group – is a unique advocacy and networking agency which aims to support humanitarian and development programmes in Afghanistan and to reflect the views and wishes of the people of the country. Founded in 1987, we currently have 29 member agencies, and BAAG is a source of expert advice for policymakers, donors, media and the public.

Its mission is to work together with member agencies and others to raise awareness of the needs and aspirations of Afghans, particularly the poorest and most vulnerable. It aims to promote policies to counter poverty and encourage good practice and policies in development and humanitarian work.

    Rationale for the role

    In November 2018 the UN and Afghan government are jointly hosting the Geneva Conference on Afghanistan, an inter-Ministerial conference to review progress made on commitments made to and by Afghanistan and to agree reform and development milestones. BAAG is currently working with the Civil Society Working Committee (CSWC) and the UN and donors, in Kabul and Geneva, to enable effective input and participation by civil society ahead of, and during, the Conference. There will be a minimum of ten Afghan delegates from civil society, two of whom will deliver a statement in the main conference on the 28th. They will also attend side events on the 27th November, along with development experts from international NGOs, think tanks and academia and policy makers from Europe, Afghanistan and elsewhere. BAAG is organising a full-day workshop in Geneva on the 26th November for the Afghan delegates and international civil society representatives. Recommendations will be prepared for high level EU, Afghan and international delegates and the media.

    During the lead-up to the conference, BAAG will work with donors and a range of Afghan and international NGOs to organise a schedule of complementary events (round tables, discussions, high level meetings) in the UK and Afghanistan.

    · Offer basic media training and guidance to those Afghan delegates requiring it. This can be delivered in Geneva shortly before the conference.

    · Manage the conference press room on the 26th, with support from BAAG and the volunteer(s).

    1. A minimum of 5 interviews, news pieces or features in traditional and/or online international media which involve or quote Afghan delegates to the GCA.
