The European Union and the United Nations launched the Spotlight Initiative in September 2017. This global partnership, with €500 million of dedicated funding, is aimed at eliminating all forms of violence against women and girls, as well as harmful practices. It follows a transformative and evidence-based approach, addressing unequal power relations between men and women and focusing on gender equality and women’s empowerment. In line with the principles of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Initiative follows a human rights-based approach and takes into consideration the specific needs of women and girls who experience multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination and uphold the principle of “leaving no one behind”. This work is embedded in the broader normative framework of the sustainable development goals and builds on decades of work, existing initiatives, and accelerated momentum.
The Spotlight Initiative seeks to intensity the focus and accelerate progress on eliminating violence against women and girls, as well as harmful practices, through “dedicated large-scale resources, comprehensive design and focus, and evidence-based programmatic theory of change”.
The Spotlight Initiative aims to support transformative change on the ground to end violence against women and girls globally. The Initiative covers five regions, Asia, Africa, Latin America, the Pacific, and the Caribbean. The Initiative adopts a comprehensive approach to violence, implementing interventions under 6 outcome areas: legislation and policies; strengthening institutions; violence prevention; the provision of available, accessible and acceptable quality services; quality and reliable data collection, and the support of the women’s movement and relevant civil society organizations.
The Initiative is supported by a Secretariat to ensure coherence, alignment, quality, and strong technical support for a programme of this size with regional specificities. The Spotlight Secretariat’s technical unit is specifically accountable for the technical quality and coherence of the Initiative. It responds to requests from the Initiative’s Strategic and Operational Committee for support and assistance to: provide key technical support and guidance in development of country programmes: collaborate with and provide support to technical officers of UN Agencies at country and regional levels to guarantee the technical quality and coherence of the Initiative, regularly brief and consult all relevant UN Agencies, serve as a liaison to civil society at the global level to build partnerships and ensure inclusion, ensure timely deployment of technical capacity to country programmes as needed, initiate and support regional programming where there is no regional structure, make the linkages between programming and policy outputs, provide on-going monitoring support for quality assurance, coordinate the evaluation of programmes, and ensure public information, communication and visibility for the Initiative and Conduct analysis and management of the Initiative’s knowledge.
Under the guidance and direction of the Heads of the Management and Technical Units of the Secretariat, the M&E and reporting Officer is responsible to implement the Spotlight M&E Strategy and to manage the development of all Spotlight reports, including through direct support and advice to Spotlight Teams at regional and national levels.

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.
