Emerging and future digital technologies and the opportunities they offer will profoundly improve the lives of those furthest behind. Recognizing this potential, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has launched an organization-wide digital transformation that will splice digital into its DNA—harnessing its potential to do good for more people, better and faster. UNDP’s 2019-2021 Digital Strategy has created a new UNDP Digital Unit, charged with leading the next wave of innovation in sustainable development.
UNDP is the development arm of the United Nations. Present in 170 countries with over 17,000 people, UNDP works on the world’s biggest problems: extreme poverty, climate change, good governance, renewable energy, crisis prevention, and women’s empowerment, among others.
We are leveraging the power and agility of digital to propel all people forward, starting with digital initiative development, scaling innovation, and communicating this organizational change internally and externally. To achieve this, we need a team that's nimble, that's passionate, that has the technical skills required to help close the digital divide. Are you one of these people? Read more about our digital strategy here.
To bring digital around the globe, we need someone who can promote and communicate the digital agenda.
The position of the Capability Building & Networks Lead will be part of the team under Chief Digital Officer and report to the Chief Digital Officer.
Duties and Responsibilities
The Capability Building and Networks Lead will work to develop strategies to support UNDP’s employees to understand and act on digital opportunities in the context of their own work. This will include:

z = price of the proposal being evaluated
Shortlisted candidates (ONLY) will be requested to submit a Financial Proposal.
