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. Placing women's rights at the center of all its efforts, the UN Women leads and coordinates United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action globally. It provides strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States' priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
The Republic of Serbia is a signatory to a number of important international treaties, which guarantee the equality of men and women and prohibit gender-based discrimination, most notably the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) and the Istanbul Convention. National commitments on gender equality are in place, and despite the existing legal and policy framework, gender inequalities are prominent in Serbia and present in all spheres of life, in access to resources, in participation to decision-making processes and in interpersonal relations.
The Government of the Republic of Serbia established a Coordination Body for Gender Equality in 2014 through a Government Decision (1) with a mandate to coordinate Government actions in the area of gender equality. The Coordination Body for Gender Equality considers all issues, and coordinates and monitors the work of authorities related to gender equality, and submits its proposals, opinions and expert explanations to the Government. The Coordination Body for Gender Equality leads and monitors the implementation of the national policy on gender equality. The establishment of the national gender equality mechanism is important for the European integration process and key to accessing EU gender equality principles and grounding them into their public policy. The Coordination Body for Gender Equality, a national gender equality mechanism, is the key partner of UN Women in Serbia, under the signed Memorandum of Understanding, signed in February 2015.
UN Women Programme Office in Serbia is implementing a three-year Project “Support to Priority Actions for Gender Equality in Serbia”, funded by the European Commission within the Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA) II. The Project supports the Government of the Republic of Serbia in effective implementation of the EU Gender Equality Acquis and international and national obligations, and through support to women CSOs. UN Women Serbia will implement the Project, in close cooperation with the Coordination Body for Gender Equality, the Ministry of European Integration, the EU Delegation in Serbia and other partner institutions and women's organizations’. Furthermore, the project will advance the position of women and will support local communities in fulfilling their commitments on gender equality.
Under the Result 1 the Project will ensure that the Coordination Body for Gender Equality has the administrative capacities to implement the international and national obligations and to perform gender mainstreaming of state funded programmes. Therefore, the Coordination Body for Gender Equality and UN Women are seeking two National Consultants for Gender Equality to support the Coordination Body for Gender Equality in implementing activities in line with its mandate and in leading the implementation of the national commitments.
The objective of this assignment is to strengthen the institutional capacities of the Coordination Body for Gender Equality in leading the implementation of the international and national obligations in the field of gender equality, with the special focus on newly established Law on Gender Equality, and in conducting activities in line with the Coordination Body for Gender Equality mandate.
