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, 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.
The Nordic countries have a steadfast relationship with the UN, and the Nordic countries have historically been strong advocates for Gender Equality both within their own countries and as part of their development cooperation policy. All five countries played an important role in the establishment of UN Women, provided funds for the transition process and remain key supporters, with four of the five countries being among UN women top 12 donors.
The Nordic countries provide significant financial contributions to development cooperation both multilaterally and bilaterally and are among the top donors in terms of official development aid.
Recognizing the importance of the Nordic Countries in development assistance, a Liaison Office will open in Copenhagen in 2013. A UN Women presence in Copenhagen provides a strategic entry point and an opportunity to liaise with Nordic parliamentarians and key decision makers, the UN Women National Committees in Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, with the private sector, the media and civil society. It is also an opportunity to work closely with the UN Women liaison office in Brussels and with all other UN agencies based in Copenhagen.
The strategic focus is on resource mobilization and partnership development in the area of policy advice and political advocacy with the Nordic countries on issues pertaining to UN Women’s mandate to advance gender equality and women’s empowerment and rights.
The Communication Analyst, reporting to the Director of the Nordic Liaison Office, implements UN Women resource mobilization strategy focused on sustaining and expanding partnerships with the Nordic countries.
The work requires knowledge of strategic results-oriented programming, monitoring and evaluation, as well as experience in communication, resource mobilization for international development programmes, involving dialogue with donors and strategic partners. Further the work requires experience with administrative tasks including procurement, budgeting and office management.

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.
