UNDP works in about 170 countries and territories, helping to achieve the eradication of poverty, and the reduction of inequalities and exclusion. We help countries to develop policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capabilities and build resilience in order to sustain development results.
UNDP is working to strengthen new frameworks for development, disaster risk reduction and climate change. We support countries' efforts to achieve the new Sustainable Development Goals, which will guide global development priorities through 2030. The key 2030 Agenda principle of leaving no one behind and stamping out inequality is at the core of everything we do.
UNDP focuses on helping countries build and share solutions in three main areas:
In all our activities, we encourage the protection of human rights and the empowerment of women, minorities and the poorest and most vulnerable.
Duties and Responsibilities
UNDP corporate Intranet is now based on SharePoint Online, a centrally hosted and managed web-based platform for document management and collaboration. The platform allows for internal management processes, secured business process workflow management, internal information dissemination, authoritative content, policies and procedures, and document management/record retention of critical, substantive, internal, official documents and records such as strategies, policy papers, contracts, invoices, financial and travel records, communications, prescriptive content, corporate policies, internal team, and individual work sites, etc.
Sharepoint’s capabilities and features can improve the CO’s efficiency and productivity; however, the benefits depend on how contents are structured, labeled, and categorized. While the corporate Sharepoint already provides us the template, customization to local needs is necessary to achieve maximum benefits from the system. In line with the new office structure, the Digital Services aims to maximize utilization of the corporate Intranet for internal business processes, document and records management, corporate assets, business intelligence/analytics, and internal team collaboration. Our current level of ICT resource (staffing), is not sufficient to support the needed enhancement we envisioned for our Intranet.
Under the guidance and direct supervision of the ICT Analyst, the ICT Intern will be supporting the Digital Services in developing the CO’s Intranet environment. He/she will support in the Digital Services throughout the project development cycle of the Sharepoint Developent project. He/she will be part of the MS Teams to update and monitor the development of the ICT project.
UNDP’s new Intranet is based on O365, SharePoint online, Power Apps, Power BI, and Microsoft Flow. The ICT Intern will support and assist the Digital Services unit in revamping the Country Office portal.
Support and assist in designing the CO’s Intranet solutions focusing on achieving the following results:
Update contents of the Country Office Sharepoint Online
Other competencies and attitude:
Required Skills and Experience
Applicants to the UNDP internship programme must at the time of application meet one of the following requirements:
Field of study: Information Technology, Computer Science, Creative & Design or Multimedia Arts or equivalent.
A few key points regarding internships with UNDP:
The purpose of the Internship Programme is not to lead to further employment with UNDP but to complement an intern’s studies. Therefore, there should be no expectation of employment at the end of an internship.
UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.
UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.
