Background

You are invited to join a team of dedicated development professionals whose primary role is to support the Philippines to achieve the 2030 Agenda.  As part of the UNDP team your focus will be to work with multiple stakeholders to find the country specific solutions that lead to the eradication of poverty and to ensure no one is left behind - and we reach those furthest behind first.

You will be confronted with diverse development challenges, including addressing   basic   development   needs, supporting institutional   transformations   to enable   sustainable   development, and enabling rapid recovery from shocks, crises and conflicts by strengthening development pathways.   These development challenges are not mutually exclusive.  In fact, they often coexist, requiring tailored integrated solutions that can adequately address specific deficits and barriers.

We place a premium on national ownership in the analysis, design and implementation of solutions, as well as a partnership-based approach to leverage the range of skills and resources needed – public and private.  We work closely with all stakeholders in society to find innovative solutions to old development problems.

UNDP is looking for individuals who have the analytical, planning and implementation capacities that can address links, choices and connections across many issues and sectors.  We seek individuals who can apply global best practice to national contexts. We are looking for people who are enthusiastic, motivated and committed to making a positive contribution to Development in the Philippines.
