UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.
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.
The UN Women Independent Evaluation and Audit Services (IEAS) provides independent evaluation and internal audit assurance, as well as advisory services on UN-Women’s strategies, programmes, governance, risk management, controls, business systems and processes to provide evidence for decision-making, to identify good practices and to provide recommendations for improvement. The Charter governs the mandate, responsibilities, and activities of the IEAS.
IEAS is supported by two services; the Independent Evaluation Service (IES) and the Internal Audit Service (IAS). Independent evaluation at UN Women is defined as a systematic and impartial assessment that provides credible and reliable evidence-based information for understanding the extent to which an intervention has achieved or made progress, or lack thereof, towards intended and unintended results on gender equality and the empowerment of women. The revised Evaluation Policy governs evaluation in UN Women.
The purpose and role of evaluation in UN Women is to enhance accountability, inform decision-making and contribute to learning on the best ways to achieve women’s empowerment and gender equality through operational and normative work.
Under the direction and supervision of the Chief, Independent Evaluation Service, and working across multiple evaluation teams at any given time, the Evaluation Data Specialist is responsible for identifying, collecting, extracting, cleaning, and analyzing and reporting on secondary data required for evaluation (including corporate and IES-led regional and country portfolio evaluations). Data includes but is not limited to: external country data (e.g. national statistics, SDG performance), UN Women programmatic and project data (e.g. results achievement, planning data, implementing partner data and repots), UN Women operational and managerial data (e.g. detailed financial analysis, human resource analysis, donor management analysis).
As needed, the Evaluation Data Specialist will also support the Director, IEAS in supporting IEAS’s wider data strategy, analysis and knowledge management needs.

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.
