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.

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. Placing women’s rights at the center of all its efforts, UN Women leads and coordinates United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world. It provides strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
UN Women Philippines is jointly implementing the project BRIDGE - Bridging Recruitment to Reintegration in Migration Governance: Philippines (BRIDGE) with the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the International Labour Organization (ILO) seeking to support government of the Philippines in achieving Objectives 6 and 21 through the lens of the Global Compact for Migration Thematic Area 4: Facilitating regular migration, decent work and enhancing the positive development effects of human mobility.
This will be accomplished by ensuring a) Government initiatives to promote fair and ethical recruitment as well as reintegration services are evidence-based, gender-responsive and coordinated through a people-centered, whole-of-government and whole-of-society approach and b) the Government establishes mechanisms to translate evidence into policy and best practices pertaining to recruitment and reintegration through the migration cycle. Both results seek to ensure human mobility in the Philippines is fully utilized and facilitated in a regular, safe and orderly manner that contributes towards sustainable development effects for migrants, their families and even communities.
Furthermore, against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting large-scale displacement and return migration of OFWs, BRIDGE seeks to equip and strengthen the approach by Government and civil society towards effective reintegration frameworks and services that are tailored to the COVID-19 context, mindful of its gender differentiated implications on men and women migrants.
Likewise, cognizant of the likely eventual surge of OFW deployments post-pandemic, and the increased risk of exploitation as a result, BRIDGE’s focus on fair and ethical recruitment seeks to strengthen and align national standards of recruitment to international standards, while ensuring there is a more consistent and impactful approach from recruitment to reintegration.
UN Women Philippines will contribute to the project by engaging government actors and organizations to ensure gender responsive mechanisms specifically addressing gender differentiated needs of migrants as well as coordinate partnership meetings, policy and knowledge exchange to further learn and understand the plight of migrant women.
To strengthen the implementation of BRIDGE, UN Women seeks a National Consultant on Gender and Migration to provide technical and advisory support to the project team and UN Women Women’s Economic Empowerment (WEE)/Migration programme in the Programme Presence.
