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 centre 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, through its Women, Peace and Security Team in Cotabato, manages the Women Peace and Humanitarian Fund (WPHF) that works with eleven (11) CSO partners in conflict impacted communities. It is also implementing the Empowering women for sustainable peace in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) together with UNDP. These programme recognize that gender-related vulnerabilities and violence, COVID-19, and electoral transitions challenge to the peace and stability of the BARMM and its surrounding areas by straining efforts to reintegrate former combatants, driving up competition for scarce resources in localities with historical tension, and shifting institutional focus away from building inclusive policies during the formative stage of the region’s new administrative apparatus. These programme seek to contribute to the Normalization agenda of the BARMM government. They are designed to prevent insecurity and violence by harnessing the potentials of both women and men and addressing structural gender inequality and discriminatory gender norms that are the barriers to sustainable peace. It focuses on the localization of the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda in BARMM with the assumption that peace is inextricably linked to equality between women and men. Empowering women to engage in peacebuilding within communities affected by conflict is critical to creating and sustaining peace in BARMM. The BARMM Regional Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security (RAP-WPS) 2020-2022 provides a clear entry point to translate commitment into concrete plans back with resource allocation in the coming years. As the new cycle of BARMM RAP-WPS is being prepared, the programme seek to enhance the role of Bangsamoro women in the implementation of the peace agreement, in conflict transformation and the protection of their human rights in conflict and post-conflict settings.
To support the implementation of these programmes, UN Women seeks a Programme Assistant to work with and provides support to the members of the Programme Team in the development and implementation of the programmes. The Programme Assistant will provide support and assistance to the team to ensure effective programme implementation in line with UN Women rules and regulations. Under the guidance and supervision of the Programme Specialist, the Programme Assistant supports the programme operations by performing a variety of standard administrative processes. The Programme Assistant works in close collaboration with the programme and projects staff and the Operations team to ensure consistent service delivery.
