About the IAS:

The mission of the International AIDS Society (IAS) is to lead collective action on every front of the global HIV response through its membership base, scientific authority, and convening power.

Founded in 1988, the IAS is the world’s largest association of HIV professionals, with members from more than 180 countries working on all fronts of the global AIDS response. Together, we advocate and drive urgent action to reduce the global impact of HIV.

The IAS is the steward of the world’s two most prestigious HIV conferences – the International AIDS Conference and the IAS Conference on HIV Science. These conferences have established a gold-standard meeting that convenes the world’s top scientists, civil society members and policymakers to jointly discuss the fight against HIV.

The IAS promotes and invests in HIV advocacy and research on key issue areas through our strategic programmes, initiatives, and campaigns that advocate for urgent action to reduce the global impact of HIV, including increased investment in HIV cure research; optimizing treatment and care for infants, children and adolescents with HIV in resource-limited settings; preventing and treating HIV-related co-infections; and expanding access to prevention, treatment and care for key populations at higher risk for HIV – such as men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, sex workers and transgender individuals – including protecting their human rights by combatting punitive laws and discriminatory policies.

More information on IAS can be found at www.iasociety.org.

About AIDS 2020:

The International AIDS Conference is the largest gathering on HIV and AIDS in the world. First convened during the peak of the AIDS epidemic in 1985, it continues to provide a unique forum for the intersection of science, advocacy and human rights. Each conference is an opportunity to strengthen policies and programmes that ensure an evidence-based response to the epidemic. The conference also serves as a focal point to intensify political and financial commitments to AIDS. The 23rd International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2020) will take place in San Francisco and Oakland, United States, from 6 to 10 July 2020. It is expected to convene nearly 20,000 delegates from more than 170 countries.

  • 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.

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.

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.

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:

In an increasingly interconnected world, migration may seem like a challenging issue given its rapidly-changing and complex dynamics. If well managed, however, migration can have lasting and beneficial impacts to sustain economic prosperity and social development for origin, transit and destination countries while securing national sovereignty and the rights of migrants.

A common challenge in governing and managing migration comes from the fact that it is difficult to assess what aspects, in broad strokes, should be considered when addressing migration policy challenges, especially as they often require a multi-sectoral response. To address this, IOM is redeveloping the Essentials of Migration Management (emm2.0) as its flagship capacity building programme on migration management. Designed for government officials with migration-related policy functions, the emm2.0 programme will be launched in 2020 to provide foundational trainings on key aspects of migration management. The “Essentials of Migration Management programme (emm2.0)” repurposes the 2004 resource to ensure it is fit for purpose for the migration environment of 2019 and beyond.

Under the direct supervision of the emm2.0 Programme Manager and overall supervision of the

Head of the IBM Division in close coordination with the DMM Director as Chair of the “emm2.0

Advisory Committee”, the successful candidate will be responsible for global oversight of the emm2.0 programme as well as developing new capacity building proposals, coordinating project activities, monitoring budgets and communicating with emm2.0 programme stakeholders,

  4. Coordinate and work with internal and external stakeholders to ensure emm2.0 contributes to and is consistent with IOM’s overall policies, strategies, and working methods, including vis-a-vis relevant mechanisms such as the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

  5. Establish and maintain strong partnerships and liaison with government and local authorities, donors, implementing partners, the private sector, UN agencies and other programme stakeholders to foster emm2.0 strategic goals. Coordinate and undertake fundraising activities for the emm2.0 programme, including within the multilateral donor environment.

  6. Act as global emm2.0 programme focal point in IOM, delivering on the global programme work plan.

  7. Coordinate, guide and follow up on the monitoring, evaluation and reporting requirements of the programme, and ensure regular and proactive coordination with country level counterparts. Report regularly on the progress of the programme and advise on problems, challenges and action to be taken to mitigate issues.
