UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security. The United Nations Trust Fund to End Violence against Women (UN Trust Fund) was established through the UN General Assembly Resolution 50/166 with UN Women as its Administrator on behalf of the UN system. The UN Trust Fund is a global multi-lateral mechanism supporting national efforts to end violence against women, one of the most widespread human rights violations in the world. The UN Trust Fund awards grants to civil society organizations and government entities and provides technical assistance and funding to its partners to advance the development of innovative models and strategic interventions in the area of ending violence against women and girls. To date, the UN Trust Fund has awarded USD 198 million to 609 initiatives in 140 countries and territories.
The UN Trust Fund’s grant-giving model includes training for civil society organizations awarded grants on UN Trust Fund project, financial and operational management. Capacity development forms part of the UN Trust Fund’s vision set out in its Strategic Plan 2021 – 2025 with reference to the Development output 1: Grant-giving and capacity development - More CSOs and WROs are enabled by the UN Trust Fund through: (a) Long-term and flexible funding to meet demand-driven needs, project focus and approach; (b) Organizational support, accompaniment, and capacity development to comply with grant requirements and be resilient and sustainable organizations; and (c) Programmatic support and capacity development to plan and implement principled EVAW/G initiatives. In order to support selected grantees in delivering their projects, including ensuring their compliance with grant requirements and building their resilience and adaptability, the UN Trust Fund is committed to accompany CSOs and WROs through project formulation, results-based management and reporting, finance and operational requirements through capacity development to effectively plan and manage grant funds. The aim is to contribute to developing organizational and staff capacity that can lead to more resilient and sustainable organizations. In addition, the UN Trust Fund will support CSOs and WROs to develop or access additional capacities needed for principled EVAW/G programming, learning and knowledge management – based on needs and demand – including through partnerships, collaboration and knowledge exchange at country, regional and global levels.
Reporting to the UN Trust Fund’s Capacity and Operations Manager, the Analyst will be responsible for coordination and technical support of the activities that firstly (1) enhance UN Trust Fund funded organizations’ ability to manage and implement their grant according to UN Trust Fund project management requirements; and secondly (2) strengthen the institutional capacity and sustainability of organizations funded, particularly of small women’s organizations, active in the area of ending violence against women. This will include: supporting the development and implementation of the UN Trust Fund’s Capacity Development (CD) Strategy; managing and monitoring UN Trust Fund online and in-person capacity development activities (including an online training package); and providing technical assistance and capacity development to grantee organizations on project management as needed.
The postholder will be engaged in designing a revised approach to CD for the new UN Trust Fund Strategic Plan 2021+ and contribute to the UN Trust Fund’s grant making under the Spotlight Initiative.

In July 2010, the United Nations General Assembly created UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. The creation of UN Women came about as part of the UN reform agenda, bringing together resources and mandates for greater impact. It merges and builds on the important work of four previously distinct parts of the UN system (DAW, OSAGI, INSTRAW and UNIFEM), which focused exclusively on gender equality and women's empowerment.
