UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.
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.
UN Women is implementing a new programme called the ‘Transformative approaches to recognize, reduce, and redistribute unpaid care work in women’s economic empowerment programming’ programme (‘3R Programme’) which will be implemented in Rwanda, Senegal and South Africa. The overarching goal of the programme is to remove the structural barriers to women’s full and equal participation in the economy by recognizing, reducing, and redistributing unpaid care work. The 3R Programme builds on UN Women’s expertise at the global, regional and country level as well as UN Women’s existing strong partnerships with women’s cooperatives and other women’s rights organizations, traditional leaders, communities, men and boys, and the private and public sectors to address unequal power relations, systemic discrimination and harmful norms and practices that underpin inequities in care work. In particular, the 3R programme will complement existing UN Women programmes on climate-resilient agriculture and rural women’s economic empowerment in the three countries, by developing a care component which responds to lessons learned that indicate insufficient attention is given to women’s unpaid care and domestic workloads and overall time poverty.
Reporting to the 3R Programme Global Coordinator, under the overall supervision of the South Africa Head of Office, the Coordination Specialist is responsible for the technical implementation of the 3R Programme in South Africa which includes coordinating with the Global Coordinator, key national partners and stakeholders, knowledge management and communications efforts, as well as results-based monitoring and reporting, and financial management of the 3R Programme in South Africa.
