• Please note that this is a temporary job opening, open to internal and external candidates. This position is available until 31 December 2018; the selected candidate is expected to start as soon as possible. All posts are subject to availability of funds.
• 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.
• Subject to the funding source of the position, this temporary job opening may be limited to candidates based at the duty station.
• 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.

Switzerland: Consultancy – Preparation of Advocacy Background Papers and Reports

 Finanzas, FULL TIME, Mercadeo  Comments Off on Switzerland: Consultancy – Preparation of Advocacy Background Papers and Reports
Mar 232018
 

Organization: UN Children’s Fund
Country: Switzerland
Closing date: 29 Mar 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.

Background and rationale

The Global Education Cluster (GEC) was established in 2007 and is co-led by UNICEF and Save the Children; it is the only global cluster to be co-lead by a UN agency and an NGO. The GEC brings together NGOs, UN agencies, academics, and other partners under the shared goal of ensuring predictable, well-coordinated and equitable provision of education for children affected by humanitarian crises. The GEC plays a key role in supporting the coordination of Education in Emergency (EiE) responses in a vast majority of these humanitarian crises. At the global level, the GEC has over 20 partners.

Complex crises and displacement affect more lives than ever before. In 2018, approximately 135 million people across the world will need humanitarian assistance and protection[1]. More than 75 million children and young people aged 3-18 are currently in urgent need of educational support in 35 crisis-affected countries[2]. Interruptions to education resulting from crises have devastating consequences for children, youth and communities. Over the past few years, there has been greater acknowledgement for EiE as an urgent priority in humanitarian action and new commitments have been made, most notably the Education Cannot Wait Fund, one of the outcomes of the World Humanitarian Summit. Donors have initiated changes as well – promoting cash, channelling more funding to national actors, and prioritizing multi-year funding modalities – which have required rethinking the coordination of and response to EiE.

Informed by the global developments and in line with the strategic objectives of the 2017-2019 Strategic Plan, the Global Education Cluster will enhance its advocacy efforts to promote the continued prioritization of EiE as a means to address important root causes and consequences of humanitarian crises. To this end, the Global Education Cluster is seeking the services of a consultant to prepare background papers to frame key issues related to EiE, with contrasting country perspectives.

Purpose of the Consultancy

The purpose of this consultancy is to contribute to advocacy efforts for the prioritization of EiE on key issues affecting education in emergencies, particularly under-funding and the nexus between education and protection.

Scope of the Consultancy

Under the supervision of the Global Education Cluster Coordinator, the consultant will undertake the following tasks:

  • Prepare an advocacy brief on the EiE financing trends over the past four years (maximum 5 pages). The aim of the paper is to analyse the degree to which pledges towards EiE are met by real commitments and demonstrate specific funding gaps in order for the GEC to more effectively advocate on behalf of EiE priorities. To this end, the paper will analyse trends based on global indicators, such as children in need of education in emergencies support, children reached by such programmes, amount of education funding request versus received. The paper will also include country specific indicators to show where education has been prioritized vs. those where it has been underprioritized. The analysis will also include trends on the amounts being requested over time, the amounts funded and the ongoing financing gap.

  • Prepare a framing paper on the protective role of education in humanitarian crisis, including two countries case studies (maximum 15 pages). The relatively low funding for EiE is symptomatic of an overall under-prioritization of the sector, which can be traced back to several factors, chief among which is the prevailing sentiment that education does not save lives, thus is less urgent than nutrition, health and WASH interventions. However, education is key from a protection perspective. EiE interventions save children and their communities from some of the root causes of crises: downward spirals of violence and poverty in particular. This paper will analysis the protective role that education plays in crises contexts, and will analyse the relationship between lack of funding and prioritization for EiE and the protection risks faced by children. The paper will also look at examples from different country contexts to compare and contrast the implications of how funding for EiE can improve the protection of children, while identifying best practices for protecting education from attack.

  • The consultant will also prepare a report of a partners briefing (5 pages maximum) on issues related to protection and education. This paper will be a summary of the discussions during the partner briefing focusing on identifying key issues and ways forward.
  • Key Deliverables

    Based on the purpose, methodology and tasks of this consultancy, the following deliverables are foreseen:

  • Paper on financing education (maximum 5 pages) [20 days]
  • Framing paper on the protective role of education in humanitarian emergencies (maximum 15 pages) [25 days]
  • Report of the first partners briefing (5 pages) [5 days including 1 day attending partners’ briefing]
  • Qualifications

    Education: Advanced university degree (Master’s degree or equivalent), in a field relevant to the assignment.

    Work Experience: Minimum of 10 years of work experience in the humanitarian sector, including experience in the field, of which at least five conducting reviews, assessments and/or evaluations of humanitarian issues. Familiarity with education in emergencies and previous analytical experience relating to education and protection/education under attack.

    Language: For this consultancy, fluent oral and written English is essential.

    Other Skills: Knowledge of institutional mandates, policies and guidelines pertaining to humanitarian assistance and coordination. Knowledge of the institutions of the UN system.
