You are invited to join a team of dedicated development professionals whose primary role is to support the Philippines to achieve the 2030 Agenda.

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.
You will have strong knowledge and demonstrated experience in one or all of the following: climate action; institutions and partnerships development; and peace building. Your role will be to contribute to building and managing a multi-million-dollar portfolio of activities that help to shape effective development policy and programs in the Philippines. You will work collaboratively with your colleagues to ensure holistic, integrated, effective and efficient programming. You will also work with our sister UN Agencies, UNDP HQ staff, Government officials, technical advisors and experts, multi-lateral and bi-lateral donors and civil society to successfully implement the UNDP programme.
