Switzerland: Consultancy (11.5 months): Child Safeguarding Consultant, Private Fundraising and Partnerships (PFP), Geneva, Switzerland (Remote working is possible)

 FULL TIME, Recursos Humanos, Varios  Comments Off on Switzerland: Consultancy (11.5 months): Child Safeguarding Consultant, Private Fundraising and Partnerships (PFP), Geneva, Switzerland (Remote working is possible)
Sep 022018
 

Organization: UN Children’s Fund
Country: Switzerland
Closing date: 07 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

The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does – in programmes, in advocacy and in operations. We are concerned not only with what we achieve for children but also how we achieve it. We are fully committed to ensuring that we are doing all that we can across our own operations in regard to respecting, upholding and supporting children’s rights and in particular ensuring that they are safe and protected.

UNICEF’s Policy on Conduct Promoting the Protection and Safeguarding of Children (“Child Safeguarding Policy”): (i) connects all of UNICEF’s work, personnel and partners to commitments to the best interests and human rights of children we serve; (ii) establishes a mechanism for UNICEF Divisions to identify and address collateral programmatic, operational and other risks to these commitments, under the supervision of the Deputy Executive Director (Management); and (iii) prescribes a general mechanism for addressing breaches of safeguarding principles.

Implementation of the global Child Safeguarding Policy is overseen by the Child Safeguarding Unit in New York Headquarters, reporting directly to the Deputy Executive Director (Management). As a Division of UNICEF, the Private Fundraising & Partnerships Division (PFP), based in Geneva, Switzerland, is in the process of strengthening its divisional child safeguarding policies and procedures, in line with the global policy. PFP is also responsible for managing UNICEF’s relationship with its 34 National Committees, independent country-level organisations which are the public face of UNICEF in industrialized countries. National Committees promote children’s rights and raise funds from the private sector. They engage with many different partners – including the media, NGOs, government officials, professionals, corporations, schools, children and young people. PFP is therefore also supporting the National Committees to strengthen their own child safeguarding policies and procedures, again in line with the UNICEF global policy.

To date much progress has been made. A PFP Child Safeguarding Working Group has been established to oversee the work. An action plan is in place to guide the work in both PFP and with the National Committees. The Safeguarding Lead from the UK National Committee has been engaged part-time on a job share with PFP to help implement the workplan, supported part-time by the PFP Child Rights Education (CRE) Consultant. A comprehensive mapping of existing policies and procedures in PFP has been carried out, along with a unit-by-unit risk assessment exploring the types of direct and indirect contact PFP has with children. Child safeguarding is being further embedded in PFP personnel training. A series of 2-day trainings have taken place for National Committees, supplemented by additional webinars, resources and bilateral and peer support.

However, there is a need to accelerate and strengthen this work. PFP is therefore recruiting a full-time specialist consultant to initially support, and then ultimately take over the implementation work in PFP and the National Committees from the UK Safeguarding Lead (once this jobshare finishes at the end of 2018), and from the part-time CRE Consultant. Under the supervision of the Chief of Advocacy, Private Sector Engagement, and in collaboration with the PFP Working Group, the new Child Safeguarding Consultant will support implementation of the 2018 workplan for PFP and the National Committees, and take a lead in developing the workplan for 2019. The Consultant will play an integral and critical part in ensuring that PFP and the National Committees continue to have a positive and life changing impact for our beneficiaries and create a safe and supportive environment for all children, staff, volunteers and stakeholders.

The post will preferably, but not necessarily, be based in Geneva. Remote working from outside of Geneva is possible, but the post requires significant presence in Geneva, particularly in the early stages of the contract.

How can you make a difference?

The purpose of this terms of reference is to establish a full-time specialist consultancy, initially for 11.5 months, to support implementation and strengthening of the UNICEF global Child Safeguarding Policy within PFP, and the strengthening of child safeguarding policies and procedures within UNICEF National Committees.

    Switzerland: Consultant: Impact study of ICVA’s work for 2015 – 2018 strategy and the reporting for 2018

     FULL TIME, Leyes / Abogados, SHIFT  Comments Off on Switzerland: Consultant: Impact study of ICVA’s work for 2015 – 2018 strategy and the reporting for 2018
    Aug 312018
     

    Organization: International Council of Voluntary Agencies
    Country: Switzerland
    Closing date: 27 Sep 2018

    Organization: ICVA

    Location: Geneva (or remotely based)

    Start date: November 2018

    End date: February 2019

    Number of days: 45 working days

    ICVA is searching for a consultant to capture the impact of its work in line with its 2015 – 2018 Strategic Plan and for the year 2018.**

    Rationale and context for the study

    Founded in 1962, ICVA (International Council of Voluntary Agencies) is a global network of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) working collectively to promote and facilitate NGO engagement in the humanitarian sector and the development of its policies.

    The premise underpinning ICVA’s core work is guided by the assumption that increased NGO understanding of the humanitarian sector and increased NGO engagement in the development of the humanitarian sector and its policies contributes to more principled, collective and efficient humanitarian action and policies, closing the gap between field realities and global policies.

    Based on this approach, and informed by its core mission and its 2015 – 2018 Strategic Plan, ICVA intends to:

    • Identify the current level of NGO understanding of, and engagement in, the humanitarian sector and its policies,

    • Promote NGOs and NGO fora participation in key policy debates, and;

    • Capture ICVA’s and NGO fora influence on humanitarian policies.

    This study will act as

    • a review of ICVA’s impact during 2018

    • a review of the end-of-strategy impact of the 2015 – 2018 ICVA strategy

    It will inform ICVA’s forward looking planning and reporting, and build on the lessons learned for the new strategy for 2019 – 2021.

    Objectives

    Overall objective:

    • To identify the impact of ICVA’s efforts in influencing and amplifying NGO perspectives in humanitarian dialogue and policies.

    Period covered by the reviews:

    • End-of-year review: January – December 2018

    • End-of-strategy review: January 2015 – December 2018

    Audience targeted throughout the review:

    Primary: ICVA members, NGOs, NGO Fora & platforms

    Secondary: UN agencies, other partners, donors, Member States

    Content and methodology of the study

    Objective 1:

    To capture the level and progression of ICVA members’ and NGOs’ understanding of, and engagement in, the governance of the humanitarian sector and its policies, through ICVA’s work;

    This study will capture:

    i) The extent to which ICVA’s work assists NGOs to increase their knowledge of the humanitarian sector and its policies;

    ii) The extent to which ICVA’s work assists NGOs and NGO fora to increase their engagement in the humanitarian sector and the development of its policies at the global level.

    To achieve the above, this study will:

    • Compile ICVA’s initiatives aiming to increase NGO understanding and engagement;

    • Review previous Impact Studies, ICVA’s Annual reports and analyse members’ understanding and engagement in policies at global level;

    • Complete an analysis of internal data of NGO participation and engagement in ICVA activities for the year 2018.

    Objective 2:

    To illustrate ICVA’s efforts in shaping humanitarian policies and echoing NGOs and NGO fora perspectives.

    This study will capture the impact of ICVA’s work on humanitarian dialogue and policy, identifying successes, limitations, and contributing factors to inform ICVA’s forward approach.

    To achieve the above, this study will:

    • Compile key initiatives and policies ICVA has engaged in throughout the targeted period;

    • Complete a perception survey (targeting ICVA members, NGOs, UN agencies and key donors) identifying ICVA’s role in shaping humanitarian policies through echoing NGO perspectives.

    • Update the selection of “case studies” of policies ICVA has engaged in during the period of 2015 to 2018. The case studies will detail ICVA’s approach in collecting and echoing NGOs perspectives, and how (and whether) ICVA has been instrumental in shaping those policies. Case studies will be updated based on internal and external reporting and documentation, along with questionnaires/surveys and interviews with ICVA members, NGOs, UN agencies and key donors/member states.

    Methodology:

    Review and conduct interviews and surveys with:

    • ICVA members;

    • Non-Member NGOs and NGO fora;

    • UN agencies, other partners and donors’ representatives and senior staff.

    Literature review of past ICVA Impact studies, annual and donor reports and other external and internal documents.

    The review will be undertaken by an independent consultant/company. She/he/they will be guided and supported by ICVA secretariat, under the leadership of ICVA’s Director of Programmes.

    Final Outputs

    • An overall 2015 – 2018 strategy impact report composed of the two specific objectives for the end-of-strategy review (in addition to an executive summary, introduction, description of the methodology in English);

    • A end-of 2018 impact report aligned to ICVA’s workplan and log frame for reporting;

    • Presentation package (brief pdf, power point) in English of key findings of:

    • 2015 to 2018 strategy

    • 2018 impact report

    • Package of case studies identifying lessons learned;

    • Guidance or recommendations for ICVA’s future data collection and M&E approach for the new strategy;

    • Briefing on the findings and recommendations of the reviews.

    Timing:

    November 2018 to February 2019 (45 working days)

    To conduct this study, the consultant will have the following profile and experience:

    • Extensive knowledge and experience of monitoring and evaluation methodology and reporting;

    • Extensive knowledge of the humanitarian sector and policies;

    • Extensive experience in working/interacting with NGOs and the UN system;
