Organization: UN Children’s Fund
Country: Switzerland
Closing date: 24 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

National Committees for UNICEF are an integral part of UNICEF’s global organization. Currently there are 33 National Committees in the world, each established as an independent local non-governmental organization. Serving as the public face and dedicated voice of UNICEF in industrialized countries, National Committees work tirelessly to raise funds from the private sector, promote children’s rights and secure worldwide visibility for children threatened by poverty, disasters, armed conflict, abuse and exploitation.

National Committees collectively raise around one-third of UNICEF’s annual income. This comes through contributions from corporations, civil society organizations and more than 6 million individual donors worldwide. They also rally many different partners—including the media, national and local government officials, other NGOs, specialists such as doctors and lawyers, corporations, schools, young people and the public—on issues related to children’s rights.

In 2009, the community of National Committees adopted a set of Principles of Good Governance. The objective of the Principles is to enable robust governance in National Committees as a condition for achieving results, by increasing effectiveness and efficiency, ethics, transparency and accountability, and ensuring a well-considered risk and control environment is in place.

The Governance Team in UNICEF’s Private Fundraising and Partnerships Division leads UNICEF’s strategic work on implementing the Principles and works with boards and executive management in each National Committee to convert the Principles into action and results.

    Organization: Scaling Up Nutrition
    Country: Switzerland
    Closing date: 23 Sep 2018

    Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Movement Secretariat – Country Liaison Team

    Vacancy code: VA/2018/B5119/16376

    Level: ICS-10
    Duty station: Geneva, Switzerland
    Contract type: International ICA
    Contract level: IICA-2
    Duration: Open-ended

    Application period: 07-Sep-2018 to 23-Sep-2018

    Applications to vacancies must be received before midnight Copenhagen time (CET) on the closing date of the announcement.

    Background Information – Job Specific

    Launched in September 2010, the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Movement catalyses collective action towards ending malnutrition in all its forms. Led by 60 SUN Countries and the Indian States of Jharkhand, Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh, the SUN Movement is an unprecedented effort to bring together stakeholders – governments, national and international civil society organisations, businesses, the UN system, researchers and scientists across different sectors – to create an enabling environment to improve nutrition.

    SUN countries, and all stakeholders in the Movement are committed to scaling up nutrition, by strengthening four strategic processes at country-level as set out in the SUN Movement Strategy and Roadmap 2016-2020:

    1. Expanding and sustaining an enabling political environment;
    2. Prioritising effective actions that contribute to good nutrition;
    3. Implementing actions aligned with national common results frameworks;
    4. Effectively using, and significantly increasing, financial resources for nutrition.

    The SUN Movement Secretariat was established in 2012 as a small coordinating mechanism to support SUN countries, helping them connect with each other for support and advice, and ensuring coordinated and coherent support from actors in a series of networks. The Secretariat also maintains momentum across the SUN Movement, catalyzing interest and action in new or problematic nutrition issues. Finally, the Secretariat tracks and communicates the progress made by each SUN country, and the Movement as a whole.

    The SUN Movement Coordinator, a UN Assistant Secretary General, oversees implementation of the Strategy and Roadmap, leads the SUN Movement Secretariat and represents the SUN Movement globally. Day-to-day management of the Secretariat is the responsibility of the Director.

    Functional Resposibilities

    Central to the SUN Movement Secretariat, and reporting to the Coordinator of the Country Liaison Team, is a team of Policy Specialists who liaise with SUN countries.

    Each Specialist is responsible for establishing and maintaining a dynamic working relationship with 8-10 SUN countries. The Specialist’s primary contact in each SUN country is a SUN Focal Point. Specialists must also work closely with UN agencies, civil society organizations, businesses, academics and other development partners active in each country. Specialists actively assist SUN Focal Points, and the multi-stakeholder platforms they work with, to: achieve their objectives, implement national nutrition plans, strengthen policy, legislation, institutions and actions for improved nutritionat country level.

    Policy specialists ensure that the broader national or international community of stakeholders is aware of the challenges each SUN country is facing, and mobilized to provide technical assistance. Specialists support the stakeholders in creating and strengthening opportunities in each country for accelerating progress, scaling up results, share and learn. Like all in the SUN Movement, Specialists are vigilant that the SUN Movement’s principles are always upheld, everywhere.

    Policy Specialists must therefore be in frequent contact with a large and diverse network of in-country stakeholders, primarily via telephone, teleconference, and email – often in different time zones. They must be able to sustain productive exchanges with actors that are busy, and whose means of communication can be limited. Specialists also travel periodically to the countries in their portfolio, or to selected global events. Specialists produce high-quality written or oral briefs for members of SUN Networks, the SUN Coordinator and the Secretariat, and external audiences. These briefs should make clear recommendations based on political-economy analysis, data and insights into policy processes.

    Policy Specialists are expected to be proactive, innovative, entrepreneurial, agile and result oriented, demonstrating a high standard of professionalism and integrity.

    Policy Specialists have the following responsibilities in support of a portfolio of SUN Countries

    A. Support SUN Countries including:

    • Support with their strategies and priorities;
    • Support (further) development of a stakeholder platform that is aligned and focused on implementation of scalable and replicable results;
    • Support with the Identification and encouragement of opportunities for government and other actors to accelerate impact in-country;
    • Support peer-to-peer learning between SUN Countries
    • Assist with the facilitation of virtual exchanges or meetings among groups of SUN Countries facing similar nutritional challenges, among those in comparable contexts, or neighbors in Regional Economic Communities;
    • In response to SUN Countries’ requests, broker access to effective and predictable support from within the Movement, and maintain up-to-date records of country needs and priorities;
    • Identify and highlight common, or recurring capacity gaps and support to overcome them and prevent new gaps

    B. Track and analyze country progress, challenges and opportunities, including:

    • Assist with the Movement’s Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability and Learning system;
    • Assist SUN countries with organizing and conducting their annual Joint Assessment ensuring their timely and quality participation;
    • Assist with the SUN Movement Annual Progress Report, country briefs, case studies, and the SUN website by compiling and analyzing country information, and documenting lessons learnt on effective multi-sectoral and multi-stakeholder approaches to improving nutrition;
    • Assist with other documents as required by SUN Countries, Networks, the Executive Committee, and Lead Group

    Education

    Advanced university degree (Master or equivalent) in Political Science, Social Sciences, Development, International relations or related fields. A Bachelor degree with two additional years of relevant experience may be acceptable in lieu of the advanced degree.

    Experience

    At least five years (seven years with bachelor’s degree) of progressively responsible professional experience in an international working environment, is required.

    At least three years of field experience in multi-sector programmes and policies, in food and nutrition security, food systems, trade, responsible business, gender equity or local government is desirable.
    Understanding of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is desirable.

    Hands-on experience in SUN country-owned and country-driven initiatives for development is desirable
    Skills: Proficiency in Microsoft Office, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and Adobe Acrobat Reader is required.

    Abililty to strengthen team spirit and impact.
    Demonstrated ability to collaborate across one or more dispersed and diverse teams.

    Background Information – Job Specific

    The Defeat-NCD Partnership was established in January 2018 to help tackle the most significant global health problem of the age: premature death, sickness, disability, and the associated social and economic impacts of selected non-communicable diseases (NCDs). These are projected to cost tens of billions of dollars with the most adverse consequences falling upon the poorer countries and communities.

    The Defeat-NCD Partnership is hosted by the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS), and forms part of its growing portfolio of global health related Partnerships such as Stop TB, Roll Back Malaria, Scaling up Nutrition, Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council. Overall, UNOPS health-related work totaled some US$430 million in 2017 and it is the biggest sector we work in.

    Our vision is that of a world in which there is universal health coverage for NCDs. This is a direct contribution to the transformational 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to which all nations subscribe.

    Our mission is to enable and assist the approximately 100 lower-income and lesser-developed countries to scale-up sustained action against NCDs so that they can progress SDG 3 on ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being for all at all ages and, more specifically, to achieve target 3.4 to reduce, by one-third, premature mortality from NCDs by 2030. Our initial focus is on diabetes and hypertension with expansion to other NCDs in due course probably starting with the early detection and treatment of cervical and breast cancer.

We work in a complementary and coordinated way with other health and development actors at all levels.
