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.
IOM is committed to a diverse and inclusive environment. Applications from qualified female candidates are especially encouraged. For the purpose of the vacancy, the following candidates are considered as first-tier candidates:
1. Internal candidates
2. Qualified applicants from the following NMS countries:
Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Cabo Verde, Djibouti, Fiji, Micronesia (Federated States of), Gabon, Guyana, Iceland, Comoros, Lesotho, Libya, Montenegro, Marshall Islands, Mauritania, Malawi, Namibia, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, Seychelles, Slovenia, Suriname, El Salvador, Swaziland, Timor-Leste, Holy See, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Vanuatu, Samoa
Following the recommendations of its Member States, IOM has increased the global resources allocated to Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) through the increase of staff in the Office of the Inspector General (OIG)’s Evaluation and Monitoring unit and the recruitment of Regional M&E Officers placed in eight of IOM’s nine regional offices. Furthermore, approximately 70 staff have M&E related functions within 30 IOM offices worldwide.
The recognition of the importance of M&E through an increase in staff is positive and necessary. However, this further needs to be accompanied by (a) strengthening of the internal technical capacities, (b) developing IOM-specific rules, procedures, and quality standards to streamline IOM’s institutional approach to M&E and create a strong technical basis, and finally, c) supporting organizational learning and accountability. In humanitarian settings, and with recent initiatives such as the Grand Bargain, these areas of focus are equally important to ensure evidence-based programming that is contextual, high quality and results-based, and that it strongly supports IOM’s commitment to affected populations.
Under the direct supervision of the Oversight Officer (M&E) of OIG, the successful candidate will help roll out M&E related training and technical guidance to IOM staff worldwide particularly in humanitarian settings, and will provide M&E technical assistance to IOM’s thematic divisions, regional as well as country offices.

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 and Rationale
Cash transfer programming (CTP) are increasingly recognized as a cost-effective and efficient tool for providing humanitarian assistance. They are viewed to be quicker, easier to administer and more empowering compared to traditional in-kind assistance. In 2016 UNICEF, along with other actors, endorsed global commitments to invest in the scale-up of emergency CTP. The commitments included efforts to make national social protection systems more ‘shock-responsive’ so they can flexibly respond to emergencies. UNICEF has a long experience working on cash transfer programmes, mainly supporting national social protection systems, but there has been less focus on systematically integrating cash transfer programming into emergency preparedness planning and response. With the increasing demand to use CTP in emergency settings UNICEF is investing in scaling-up and institutionalizing emergency cash-based programming across the organization. As part of its global policy on Emergency Preparedness Procedures UNICEF has introduced new a Minimum Preparedness Action (MPA) and Minimum Preparedness Standard (MPS) on cash. The organization is in the process of developing tools and guidance on humanitarian cash transfers to support planning and implementation. These activities are aimed at expanding UNICEF’s capacity to systematically include CTP in all phases of emergency response, where appropriate.
A few UNICEF Country Offices in the Europe and Central Asia Region (ECAR) have implemented cash-based interventions in response emergencies. However, these have been outside of national disaster management plans or social protection frameworks. Countries in the region are well positioned to include cash responses in their emergency preparedness plans; the region has functioning markets and relatively well-developed social protection systems. Many Country Offices across the region are engaged in supporting reforms to national social protection systems and as such there is an opportunity to make these systems more flexible, dynamic and innovative to quickly respond to the needs of children in the case of a shock or crisis.
UNICEF’s Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia (ECARO) is providing support to Country Offices on the introduction and integration of CTP approaches in both UNICEF’s and governments’ preparedness planning, within the wider context of strengthening national social protection systems in the region. In 2017 ECARO commissioned the development of a Cash Preparedness Assessment Tool for: 1) determining the feasibility of national social protection systems to respond to emergencies, 2) assessing the readiness of other actors to implement CTPs and 3) assessing UNICEF’s internal capacity to design and implement CTPs. The assessment not only guides emergency preparedness planning in line with the new organizational Minimum Preparedness Standards but also supports Country Offices to strategically engage on strengthening of national systems for cash-based responses in emergencies. The tool was successfully piloted in two countries, Armenia and Tajikistan. In 2018 ECARO aims to roll-out the assessment of cash preparedness to an additional four Country Offices (TBC: Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kyrgyzstan, and Georgia).
Purpose of the assignment
The goal of the assignment is to support UNICEF Country Offices to be prepared to efficiently respond to emergencies with quality, rapid and scalable cash based programming, by building on existing national systems, where appropriate, and through engaging the private sector, innovative approaches and partnerships. This includes hands-on technical support to Country Offices to assess the feasibility of CTP and develop country-specific roadmaps for integrating CTP in their response plans and engaging with Government and other partners on preparedness measures. The consultant will provide technical support to all 21 Country Offices in the region to improve the quality of their minimum preparedness planning on cash.
Methodology and Main Tasks
In 2017, UNICEF ECARO developed a Cash Preparedness Assessment Tool which is designed to guide UNICEF Country Offices on assessing the readiness of national systems’, partners’ and UNICEF’s own capacity to implement emergency CTP. It is expected that the consultant will use the tool and the assessment methodology outlined in the guidance note to carry out the assignment. This assessment is intended to be a relatively light assessment of the current situation, combining secondary data and insights from key informants. Where possible secondary data and the UNICEF team’s existing knowledge should be used, with key informant interviews prioritized in order to fill gaps.
Provide technical support to 4 Country Offices (TBC: Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kyrgyzstan, and Georgia) to conduct feasibility assessments (50-60 days):
Provide technical support to Armenia on preparedness measures (20-25 days):
Provide technical support to the review of all Country Offices’ MPS9

Organization: Union for International Cancer Control (UICC)
Closing date: 01 Mar 2018
The Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) is a non government organisation based in Geneva which serves an international and diverse population of cancer organisations to unite the cancer community to reduce the global cancer burden, to promote greater equity and to integrate cancer control into the world health and development agenda. We have achieved this by building a membership base of over thousand organisations and engaging in partnerships with more than 60 organisations across the UN, academic, health and private sector.
UICC convenes members and partners to encourage collaboration and new thinking through keystone events (World Cancer Congress, World Cancer Leaders Summit and World Cancer Day). Through our capacity building activities, UICC supports its members do a better job tomorrow than they do today and increase their impact by scaling up their relevance, reach and sustainability in their own settings. With our members and partners, we drive forward the key advocacy priorities building upon key international agreements (the Sustainable Development Goals, the Global Action Plan on NCDs and the 2017 Cancer Resolution at the World Health Assembly) to ensure that these global goals and targets are translated into national action.
UICC has a team of 40 people based predominantly in Geneva, Switzerland led by a CEO, reporting to a Board of Directors. It has an annual income of approximately $10m and has plans to grow significantly in the coming years. The UICC works in new offices in Geneva situated close to the United Nations and the World Health Organisation, with whom it has formal relations.
Summary of the position
UICC is a membership organisation which believes in having a deep relationship with those who sign up to be members.
