I. UNDP is the UN Development Programme and works in some 170 countries and territories, helping to achieve the eradication of poverty, and the reduction of inequalities and exclusion. UNDP helps countries to develop policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capabilities and build resilience to sustain development results. UNDP supports the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 17 new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as they help shape global sustainable development for the next 15 years.
The UNDP Office of Human resources (OHR)/Talent Acquisition and People Programme (TAPP) works to enable the development of new strategic staffing and talent acquisition initiatives with a view to build a Centre for Excellence in Talent Acquisition and Management that caters to UN system agency clients as well as other potential partners. TAPP supports corporate entry level talent programmes, including Junior Professional Officer, African Young Women Leaders Fellowship (AYWL) and Graduate Programmes.
The AYWL Fellowship Programme is a joint programme of the African Union and the UNDP Regional Bureau for Africa (RBA). The Programme seeks to: i) equip outstanding young women leaders with the leadership skills and experience required to advance the SDGs and contribute effectively to decision making in public, private and multilateral institutions; ii) create a diverse pool of talent to enhance UNDP’s organisational efficiency and contribute to more responsive and effective policies and programs; and iii) develop a network of African young women professionals that engages in promoting innovative, sustainable and inclusive development through South-South development exchange. The first cohort of AYWL Fellows completed their assignments in March/April 2021 and the second cohort of 39 Fellows will complete their assignments in August 2023.
The third cohort will include up to 50 positions with UNDP country, regional and headquarters offices. The recruitment campaign will be launched in June 2023 and it is anticipated to be a high-volume recruitment with a minimum of 5-7000 applications.
