UN Women: Partnerships Analyst
|Location :||New York, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA|
|Application Deadline :||06-Sep-11 (Midnight New York, USA)|
|Type of Contract :||FTA International|
|Post Level :||P-2|
|Languages Required :||English|
Grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, UN Women 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 is responsible for leading and coordinating efforts of the UN system to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world, providing strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States' priorities and efforts and building effective partnerships with civil society and other stakeholders.
UN Women’s Strategic Partnerships Division (SPD) is responsible for proactively driving the strategic positioning of UN Women so that the size, sources and predictability of its resources support the organization in achieving its strategic goals.
UN Women’s Strategic Plan (SP) for 2011-2013 requires that UN Women enhance its capacity to meet demand and seize opportunities. The significant rise in financial resources has a direct impact on the multiple processes surrounding donor relations, while the SP also requires an expansion of the range of contributions (e.g. from non-traditional donors and other innovative partnerships). Early projections for UN Women resources critically increase related obligations; and efforts to maintain and strengthen its existing donor relationships and innovative partnerships will also need to be increased.
The private sector globally is growing in importance not only as a funding partner, but as a key driver of development, an implementer of corporate responsibility initiatives, and a collaborator with the UN to advance UN goals, including the advancement and empowerment of women. In this context, and building on the momentum created by the Women’s Empowerment Principles—Equality Means Business partnership initiative with the UN Global Compact, the Partnerships Analyst will strengthen this and other distinctive efforts of UN Women to engage the private sector to promote gender equality and support the mandate and work of the organization.
The Partnerships Analyst will support the efforts of the Resource Mobilization Director and the Resource Mobilization and Partnerships team as a whole, in developing, implementing and sustaining long-term and multi-dimensional private sector partnerships that advance UN Women’s position and raise its profile and ability to attract resources, including through the Women’s Empowerment Principles – Equality Means Business partnership.
Within SPD, the Partnerships Analyst strengthens capacity at HQ by ensuring improved efficiency and coherence in support of UN Women’s outreach and business development strategies, including the forthcoming strategy on non-traditional donor (i.e. business, private sector and individual) engagement and resource mobilization, as well as targets in the SP related to the Women’s Empowerment Principles initiative.
Duties and Responsibilities
Under the supervision of and reporting to the Head of Resource Mobilization and Partnerships, the Partnerships Analyst will support strategic policy and programme direction to strengthen the engagement of the private sector to advance and empower women and support UN Women’s programmatic work by contributing to: (1) coordination of all aspects of UN Women’s partnership with the UN Global Compact, including the joint Women’s Empowerment Principles initiative; (2) provision of technical expertise, support and guidance within the organization to enhance HQ, regional and country-office sustainable capacity for private sector engagement.
Specifically, the Partnerships Analyst will provide client-centred results in the following areas consistent with UN Women’s/SPD’s plans, objectives, rules and regulations:
Women’s Empowerment Principles: Strategy Implementation and Coordination
Contribute to refining and implementing the UN Women/UN Global Compact joint strategy and action plan for Year III of the Women’s Empowerment Principles – Equality Means Business initiative:
Women’s Empowerment Principles: Technical Support and Stakeholder Engagement
Support implementation of the Women’s Empowerment Principles by business and the private sector to encourage greater integration of gender equality concerns into core business and support the growing business case for gender equality and women’s empowerment:

Required Skills and Experience
In July 2010, the United Nations General Assembly created UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. The creation of UN Women came about as part of the UN reform agenda, bringing together resources and mandates for greater impact. It merges and builds on the important work of four previously distinct parts of the UN system (DAW, OSAGI, INSTRAW and UNIFEM), which focused exclusively on gender equality and women's empowerment.
