Switzerland: Consultancy (Home-based with travel) – TransMonEE Database management consultant (75 days)

 FULL TIME, Leyes / Abogados, Recursos Humanos, Servicio al Cliente  Comments Off on Switzerland: Consultancy (Home-based with travel) – TransMonEE Database management consultant (75 days)
May 212019
 

Organization: UN Children’s Fund
Country: Switzerland
Closing date: 27 May 2019

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

UNICEF places a high priority on the availability of recent and reliable information for monitoring the situation of children, young people and families, for developing evidence-based policies and programmes. In this context, the TransMonEE (Transformative Monitoring for Enhanced Equity) database captures a vast range of data on social and economic issues relevant to the situation and wellbeing of children, young people and women in the countries of Europe and Central Asia. The data represent a particularly useful tool for governments, civil society organization, funding institutions and academia in considering their decisions, policies, programmes and agendas. The database is updated every year in collaboration with the National Statistical Offices (NSOs), and uploaded in the TransMonEE website: http://transmonee.org.

The database was initiated by the UNICEF Innocenti Research Centre in 1992 as part of the project on ‘Public Policies and Social Conditions: Monitoring the Transition in CEE/CIS’, better known as the MONEE Project. In 2009, the database migrated to the UNICEF Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia.

Each year country-specific templates are shared with the NSOs of participating countries, filled in and submitted by countries by the end of September with the data for the previous year. The UNICEF regional office for ECA then follows up with the countries for clarifications and additional information. The data are brought together, indicators calculated and checked again for consistency before being disseminated on the regional TransMonEE webpage.

Since 2011, the ECA region has been engaged in a continued process to improve child rights monitoring in the region and in particular, rights of the most disadvantaged children. This requires further strengthening the TransMonEE database content and structure, revising the overall pool of indicators with a view to enhancing coherence with the SDGs and increasing the availability of data on child protection indicators. Most of the countries are still struggling with availability of disaggregated data although there have been considerable improvements in recent years in terms of availability of data by age groups, sex and other potential markers of disparity.

In addition to continuous improvement and update of the content, the validation of the TransMonEE data has recently been to some extent automated. The website of the TransMonEE has been re-designed and was launched in October 2017. The database itself is undergoing a review process, while the approach to support countries producing quality and timely data is being also reviewed in parallel with the database.

UNICEF ECA Regional Office will hire a database management consultant to ensure the continuity of data collection and validation as well as to support the aforementioned planned improvements to the database and dataflows.

Objective

The database management consultant will be responsible for timely and quality management of the TransMonEE database. S/he will contribute to maintenance, annual update, validation and analysis of data, will prepare the publicly available version of the database.

    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, sexual abuse, or sexual harassment, 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. The term “sexual harassment” means any unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature that might reasonably be expected or be perceived to cause offence or humiliation, when such conduct interferes with work, is made a condition of employment or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment, and when the gravity of the conduct warrants the termination of the perpetrator’s working relationship. Candidates who have committed crimes other than minor traffic offences may not be considered for employment.
    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.

All posts are subject to availability of funding.
    Staff members are subject to the authority of the Secretary-General and to assignment by him or her. In this context, all staff are expected to move periodically to new functions in their careers in accordance with established rules and procedures.
    This position is subject to local recruitment pursuant to staff rule 4.4 of the United Nations Staff Rules. All staff in the General Service and related categories shall be recruited in the country or within commuting distance of each office, irrespective of their nationality and of the length of time they may have been in the country. A staff member subject to local recruitment shall not be eligible for the allowances or benefits exclusively applicable to international recruitment.
    Passing the Global General Service Test (GGST) is a prerequisite for recruitment consideration in the General Services and related categories in the United Nations Secretariat. Applicants who have not passed the GGST at the time of application may be invited for the test after submitting an application. Staff members who were granted a fixed-term, continuing or permanent appointment as a result of having passed a predecessor test recognized by the Office of Human Resources Management, and who have continuously held such appointments, are not required to take the new test.

    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, sexual abuse, or sexual harassment, 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. The term “sexual harassment” means any unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature that might reasonably be expected or be perceived to cause offence or humiliation, when such conduct interferes with work, is made a condition of employment or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment, and when the gravity of the conduct warrants the termination of the perpetrator’s working relationship. Candidates who have committed crimes other than minor traffic offences may not be considered for employment.
    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.

Applicants must provide complete and accurate information pertaining to their personal profile and qualifications according to the instructions provided in inspira to be considered for the current job opening. No amendment, addition, deletion, revision or modification shall be made to applications that have been submitted.
