Country: Switzerland
Organization: Interpeace
Closing date: 15 Mar 2021

Fixed term – 3 months


Interpeace is an international organisation for peacebuilding. Interpeace tailors its approach to each society and ensures that its work is locally designed and driven. Through local partners and its own local teams, Interpeace jointly develops peacebuilding programmes based on extensive consultation and research. Interpeace helps establish processes of change that promote sustainable peace, social cohesion and resilience. The organisation’s work is designed to connect and promote understanding between local communities, civil society, governments and the international community.

Interpeace also assists the international community – especially the United Nations – to play a more effective role in peacebuilding based on the organisation’s expertise in field-based work at the grassroots level. This is achieved primarily through contributing innovative thought leadership and fresh insights into contemporary peacebuilding policy. This assistance to the international community is also achieved through its ‘peace responsiveness’ work, in which Interpeace provides advice and practical support to other international organisations (especially those in the security, development and humanitarian aid sectors) so that they adapt systemically in order that their own work simultaneously addresses conflict dynamics and strengthens peace dynamics.

Interpeace is headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland and has offices around the world.

Manager, REAP (Head of REAP Secretariat)

 FULL TIME  Kommentare deaktiviert für Manager, REAP (Head of REAP Secretariat)
Mrz 022021


Country: Switzerland
Organization: International Federation of Red Cross And Red Crescent Societies
Closing date: 12 Mar 2021


The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) is the world’s largest humanitarian organization, with 192 member National Societies. As part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, our work is guided by seven fundamental principles; humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality.

Organizational Context

There are currently disparate communities and pockets of good practice across the spectrum of Early Warning and Early Action (EWEA), but there is no international mechanism that brings together the relevant actors from the development, humanitarian and climate communities. Further, while advances in science, technology and institutional coordination mean that it is often possible to anticipate a severe event and take action before it occurs, investments in early warning systems have focused on equipment and technology to predict the event, without ensuring the next step is taken to allow for early action in the most at-risk communities.

This partnership seeks to fill that gap and bring action at scale, bringing together existing governance and partnership mechanisms to better consolidate efforts by all stakeholders to leverage increased financial commitments, improve the way money is spent and aggregate and monitor targets along the spectrum of national and global frameworks, early warning systems, disaster risk reduction (DRR), domestic capacity building and early action. REAP ( Risk informed Early Action Partnership) will strengthen efforts in countries to develop early warning systems linked to early action, contributing to scaling up or building on for example the CREWS initiative and WISER and ARRCC programs to ensure investments are serving people most at-risk.

This Partnership was launched at 2019 Climate Summit in New York by the Prime Minister of Bangladesh. The International Federation of Red Cross Red Crescent Societies will host the Secretariat at their offices in Geneva, Switzerland, with the REAP Secretariat being fully independent of the IFRC.

The IFRC, a convening member of REAP, is the world’s largest volunteer-based humanitarian network. The Federation is a membership organisation established by and comprised of its member National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. Along with National Societies and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the Federation is part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. The overall aim of the IFRC is “to inspire, encourage, facilitate, and promote at all times all forms of humanitarian activities by National Societies with a view to preventing and alleviating human suffering and thereby contributing to the maintenance and promotion of human dignity and peace in the world.” It works to meet the needs and improve the lives of vulnerable people before, during and after disasters, health emergencies and other crises.

The partnership will work in line with the principles and ambitions of the Paris Agreement, the Sustainable Development Goals, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, the Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS) and the World Humanitarian Summit’s Agenda for Humanity. The Global Commission on Adaptation’s Action Track on Preventing Disasters will be a key delivery mechanism for the Partnership.

Please note that due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19 and the travel restrictions imposed by national authorities, selected candidate may be required to start the assignment/appointment remotely, in agreement with the hiring manager, and until further notice.
• 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.

• 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.

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.
The paramount consideration in the appointment, transfer, or promotion of staff shall be the necessity of securing the highest standards of efficiency, competence, and integrity. By accepting an offer of appointment, United Nations staff members are subject to the authority of the Secretary-General and assignment by him or her to any activities or offices of the United Nations in accordance with staff regulation 1.2 (c).

** Background Information – Job-specific

Launched in September 2010, the purpose of the SUN Movement is to catalyse collective action and create an enabling environment to end malnutrition in all its forms. With 62 SUN Countries and four Indian States at the helm, the SUN Movement represents an unprecedented country-led effort to bring together stakeholders – from governments, national and global civil society organisations, businesses, the UN system, researchers and scientists across different sectors – and provide them with a collaborative space to convene, mobilise, share, learn, advocate, align and coordinate actions and approaches to improve nutrition.
SUN countries, supported by all stakeholders in the Movement, are committed to creating an enabling environment for scaling up nutrition by strengthening four strategic processes as set out in the SUN Movement Strategy and Roadmap 2016-2020: expanding and sustaining an enabling political environment; prioritising effective actions that contribute to good nutrition; implementing actions aligned with national common results frameworks; and effectively using, and significantly increasing, financial resources for nutrition.

Organizational Context

The IFRC is part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement (Movement), together with its member National Societies and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).
