  • 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.

  • 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.
  • The expression “Internal candidates”, shall mean staff members who have been recruited after a competitive examination under staff rule 4.16 or after the advice of a central review body under staff rule 4.15.
  • Please note that candidates will be required to meet the requirements of Article 101, paragraph 3, of the Charter as well as the requirements of the position. The United Nations is committed to the highest standards of efficiency, competence and integrity for all its human resources, including but not limited to respect for international human rights and humanitarian law.

The term “sexual abuse” means the actual or threatened physical intrusion of a sexual nature, whether by force or under unequal or coercive conditions.

Jun 152018
 

Organization: International Committee of the Red Cross
Country: Switzerland
Closing date: 26 Jun 2018

Reports to (role)

Deputy Head of EcoSec Unit

What we do

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) works worldwide to provide humanitarian assistance to people affected by conflict and armed violence. We take action in response to emergencies and at the same time promote respect for international humanitarian law. We are an independent and neutral organization, and our mandate stems essentially from the Geneva Conventions of 1949. We work closely with National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and with their International Federation in order to ensure a concerted, rational and rapid humanitarian response to the needs of the victims of armed conflict or any other situation of internal violence. We direct and coordinate the international activities conducted in these situations.

Purpose

Within its global Economic Security (EcoSec) approach in conflict affected countries, the ICRC implements Relief, Livelihood, and Structural Support Programs in order to improve, restore or maintain food- and economic security at the household level. The EcoSec programs of the ICRC are multifaceted, bear different modes of intervention and aim at assisting victims in a timely and flexible way to meet their essential needs and expenditures in a sustainable and dignified way. Among the interventions are provision of emergency food and non-food items; nutrition programs; agricultural and veterinary/livestock related activities; as well as income generating projects. Modalities include provision of assistance, cash and vouchers and access to services.

The post holder will collaborate with the Economic Security Unit staff in order to i) support the development of institutional files, ii) update internal communication tools, iii) produce statistical compilations, analysis and visualizations, and iv) provide business support to technological applications.

Throughout the year, the post holder will receive technical guidance from experienced staff of the Unit, including Focal Points for different thematic and operational topics and will have the opportunity to acquire both practical and theoretical knowledge in food and economic security, with significant scope for developing new and innovative files.

Accountabilities & Functional responsibilities

  • Accountability to the Affected Populations (AAP): In close collaboration with the Economic Security file holder, the post holder will attend and contribute to the meetings of the ICRC Working Group on AAP, participate in the in-house mainstreaming exercise and write an annual report on the AAP practices within EcoSec.
  • Technology and Innovation: The post holder will provide business support to the field for mobile device based data collection, electronic distribution management systems and personal data protection procedures.
  • Capacity Building: In the past few years, the unit’s training needs worldwide have increased. The post holder will support the Capacity Building Manager in various tasks, including training evaluations and monitoring, the production of quarterly training statistics and the creation of an individual training database.
  • Collaborative spaces: The unit has multiple communication and collaborative platforms: the EcoSec Resource Centre regrouping reference resources on a Wiki; a quarterly newsletter updating EcoSec staff worldwide on new publications and interesting information from the field and headquarters; an EcoSec Community of Practice where the EcoSec staff can share and exchange knowledge. The post holder will be involved in the production and management of content and in charge of updates.
  • Nutrition: In collaboration with the nutritionists, the post holder will contribute to a desk review of the nutrition-related cash transfer programs and will help document existing examples. In parallel, the Associate will be involved in the review of the Nutrition in Detention training content.
  • EcoSec Programme Management Tool: Since 2010, EcoSec has used the EcoSec Programme Management Tool (EPMT) to manage and keep track of operations and to facilitate reporting. It undergoes updates on a regular basis and therefore requires testing before the launch of each new version. The post holder will be working with the Head of Project and will provide support to the reporting team.
  • Cash Transfer Programming: Cash as a modality has grown in the ICRC, requiring assistance in the reporting and mainstreaming within the institution. The Post holder will work with the cash specialists on the various upcoming activities such as drafting annual reports.
  • Micro Economic Initiative (MEI): Best practices, results and data for this successful income generating intervention have recently been regrouped into a toolkit to facilitate the programming and implementation.
