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.
The United Nations Trust Fund to End Violence against Women (UN Trust Fund) was established through the UN General Assembly Resolution 50/166 with UN Women as its Administrator on behalf of the UN system. The UN Trust Fund is a global multi-lateral mechanism supporting national efforts to end violence against women, one of the most widespread human rights violations in the world. The UN Trust Fund awards grants to civil society organizations and government entities and provides technical assistance to its partners to advance the development strategic interventions in the area of ending violence against women and girls.
The UN Trust Fund, through its annual Call for Proposals process, identifies and selects the most note-worthy projects to fund each year. The application selection process is rigorous and extensive, requiring coordination across a wide range of stakeholders, including applicants, external experts, UN Women offices and other UN agencies. On average, the grant selection process takes 9 months and involves tight deadlines and extensive coordination across 6 UN Women regional offices, 70 external experts, as well as 90+ individuals from 13+ UN agencies, NGOs, government entities, and issue experts.
The UN Trust Fund utilizes an online Grants Management System (GMS) for both the grantee selection process as well for managing grantee reporting obligations. It is in the process of redesigning its existing Grants Management System in collaboration with a vendor and the UN Women Information Systems and Telecommunications (IST) Section. The current online platforms include: 1) the Call for Proposal (CFP) section that interfaces with approximately 2,000 users during each Call for Proposals; and 2) Grants financial and narrative reporting system through which 100+ grantees submit their bi-annual reports and receive feedback on progress. The UN Trust Fund has an average of 100 active grants that utilize its online systems.
Reporting to the Grants Manager, with a Management Matrix line to the Operations Manager, the Coordination Analyst is responsible for providing support to the UN Trust Fund Call for Proposals process and developing and maintaining information systems utilized by the UN Trust Fund.

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.
