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.
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 UN Women Strategic Partnership Division (SPD) is responsible for proactively driving the strategic positioning of UN Women and ensure that the size, sources and predictability of its resources help the organization achieve its strategic goals. The division is organized into three functional clusters: Resource Mobilization; Multi-stakeholder and Partnerships Engagement Section; and Communications & Advocacy.
The Individual, Digital and Public Giving Team sits in the Multi-stakeholder and Partnerships Engagement Section. At the global level, the team coordinates and provides technical support and strategic advice to Regional and Country offices on all individual and digital giving activities. The team also oversees the work of UN Women National Committees. UN Women has currently 12 National Committees in the world (Australia, Austria, Finland, France, Germany, Japan, Iceland, Netherlands, New Zealand, Sweden, UK, USA), each established as an independent local non-governmental organization. Serving as the public face and dedicated voice of UN Women, the National Committees work tirelessly to raise awareness on women’s rights; secure worldwide visibility for women and girls threatened by poverty, disasters, armed conflict, abuse and exploitation; as well as raise funds from the private sector.
Ongoing specialist support in the area of governance will significantly strengthen National Committees’ overall performance and protect the UN Women brand and image. It will help strengthen UN Women Strategic Partnerships Division’s internal review and monitoring processes with respect to managing the relationship between UN Women and National Committees.
Under the leadership and guidance of the Head of Individual, Public and Digital Giving, the National Committees and Governance Consultant contributes to the systematic approach to improved National Committee governance, accountability, transparency and enhanced compliance with processes and agreements, including within UN Women.
