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.
UNDP’s Social and Environmental Standards (SES) apply to UNDP projects and programmes and are intended to strengthen the social and environmental outcomes of UNDP projects and avoid adverse impacts to people and the environment affected by projects. UNDP’s Social and Environmental Compliance Unit (SECU) within the Office of Audit and Investigations (OAI) helps ensure compliance with the SES. SECU forms one of the two units that comprise UNDP’s Accountability Mechanism (the other being a dispute resolution function that is located in a separate office from SECU). SECU conducts compliance reviews in response to complaints alleging that the SES have somehow been violated in the context of UNDP projects and programming. SECU investigates these claims to determine if and how the SES have been violated (rendering a project “out of compliance with the SES”), and how a project can be brought into compliance with corrective measures.
The operations of SECU within OAI are ongoing and require support, with a particular emphasis on raising awareness of SECU, executing outreach campaigns with related media, coordinating our social media presence, assisting in policy/factual research, providing logistical support for events (such as conferences, presentations, and meetings), and supporting its operations, including the possibility of assisting in specific compliance review cases. SECU is seeking an intern to aid in these functions.
