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

National Committees for UNICEF are an integral part of UNICEF’s global organization. Currently there are 33 National Committees in the world, each established as an independent local non-governmental organization. Serving as the public face and dedicated voice of UNICEF in industrialized countries, National Committees work tirelessly to raise funds from the private sector, promote children’s rights and secure worldwide visibility for children threatened by poverty, disasters, armed conflict, abuse and exploitation.

National Committees collectively raise around one-third of UNICEF’s annual income. This comes through contributions from corporations, civil society organizations and more than 6 million individual donors worldwide. They also rally many different partners—including the media, national and local government officials, other NGOs, specialists such as doctors and lawyers, corporations, schools, young people and the public—on issues related to children’s rights.

In 2009, the community of National Committees adopted a set of Principles of Good Governance. The objective of the Principles is to enable robust governance in National Committees as a condition for achieving results, by increasing effectiveness and efficiency, ethics, transparency and accountability, and ensuring a well-considered risk and control environment is in place.

The Governance Team in UNICEF’s Private Fundraising and Partnerships Division leads UNICEF’s strategic work on implementing the Principles and works with boards and executive management in each National Committee to convert the Principles into action and results.

    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.

    Duty Station : Homebased/Field Travel
    Classification : Consultant, Grade OTHE
    Type of Appointment : Consultant, 5 months with possibility of extension
    Estimated Start Date : As soon as possible
    Closing Date : 12 September 2018

    Established in 1951, IOM is a Related Organization of the United Nations, and as the leading
    UN agency in the field of migration, works closely with governmental, intergovernmental and
    non-governmental partners. IOM is dedicated to promoting humane and orderly migration for the
    benefit of all. It does so by providing services and advice to governments and migrants.

    Context:
    Within the context of working towards the ‘freer’ movement of skilled mobility within ASEAN,
    IOM Thailand is operating a regional project, ‘Strengthening Capacity on Skills Recognition,
    Recruitment and Labour Migration Information in Support of ASEAN Integration’ (‘the project’).
    This consultancy is an extension of the work that has so far been done under the preceding
    ‘Labour Market and Migration Information’ component of the project, with the overall aim of the
    consultancy to be to develop the ‘Migration Information’ component of the project.

    The project aims to enhance dialogue and coordination among ASEAN Member States (AMS),
    and support the strengthening of capacity, frameworks and mechanisms to facilitate the
    increased mobility of labour in ASEAN. The project has three main objectives: 1) improving
    availability and sharing of information on labour migration and labour markets across ASEAN; 2)
    enhancing the recruitment and employment services and information available to migrants with
    regard to intra-regional migration in ASEAN; and 3) facilitating the referencing, quality
    assurance and mutual recognition of workers’ skills and qualifications.

    Per objectives (1) and (2), through a series of capacity building workshops and a consultative
    meeting, the project will support the development of a pilot regional ASEAN Labour Migration
    Information Exchange Mechanism (envisaged to be a web-portal). It is thought that this will
    contain information including, but not limited to: labour market conditions, labour migration
    policies and rights frameworks across AMS, national legislation and admission requirements,
    skills recognition systems, learning and training opportunities, visa/work permit and licensing
    regulations, as well as general information about living and working conditions in each ASEAN
    Member State and associated rights.

    Under the overall supervision of the Project Officer, the ASEAN Labour Migration Information
    Consultant will facilitate a series of activities to increase resources and capacity to manage and
    share labour migration information, in the context of producing an action plan/template for an
    accessible, useful and up-to-date ASEAN Labour Migration Web Portal.

    Core Functions / Responsibilities:
    Activities under this Consultancy will include:

    • Facilitating and leading one (1) capacity building workshop in Bangkok, Thailand (November
    5-6 2018) as part of the ‘Labour Market Information for Migration Policy’ series. This will be the
    third and final workshop in this series aimed at government officials responsible for labour
    market information management and migration policy. This workshop should link to and build
    upon the content of the previous two workshops on ‘1. Gathering Intelligence on Labour Market
    Needs’ and ‘2. Sectoral Approaches to Current and Mid-, to Long-term Skills Anticipation and
    Matching’. This third workshop will focus on discussing ‘3. Forming effective policy responses to
    labour market challenges and opportunities in ASEAN countries’.
    • Facilitating and leading one (1) multi-stakeholder consultative meeting (mid-January 2019,
    date TBC) to gather and obtain input regarding an ASEAN-wide, information sharing mechanism
    (from a wider group of public and private stakeholders), in Manila, the Philippines (location
    TBC).

    • Following on from this consultative meeting, preparing a ‘template and action plan’ for the
    creation of an ASEAN-wide web-portal, drawing on ideas and feasibilities expressed during the
    consultative meeting, and research.
    • The consultant will be responsible for finalizing the development of the curriculum and training
    materials for the ‘capacity building’ workshop in November, and fully designing the training
    materials/agenda for the January ‘consultative workshop’.

    Additional Information

    It is envisaged that the November workshop will cover the following topics:
    • Discussing the interlinkages between and among labour market management, migration
    policies and national development plans in ASEAN
    • Utilizing available data to develop evidence-based migration policies to harness the positive
    benefits of migration for countries of origin and destination in ASEAN
    • How to develop labour migration policies in the context of ASEAN economic integration as
    envisioned by the ASEAN Economic Community and ASEAN Socio-Cultural Community’s 2025
    Blueprints, and evaluate the progress

    workshops:

    (1) 5-6 November 2018 to Bangkok, Thailand
    (2) mid-January 2019 (date TBC) to either Manila, the Philippines, or Bangkok, Thailand.
    The consultant will work under the direct supervision of the Project Officer, and the overall
    supervision of the Project Manager based in the IOM Thailand Office.
