National Consultant for Jail/Prison and Community Corrections Management
|Location :||Home-based, PHILIPPINES|
|Application Deadline :||04-Mar-21 (Midnight New York, USA)|
|Time left :||1d 10h 53m|

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.
UNODC ROSEAP is hiring a jail/prison and community corrections management consultant to provide technical assistance to UNODC activities.
The overall objective of UNODC on criminal justice reform is to strengthen the rule of law through the prevention of crime and the promotion of fair, humane and accountable criminal justice systems, in line with the United Nations standards and norms in crime prevention and criminal justice and other relevant international instruments.
UNODC ROSEAP and the Programme Office in the Philippines (POPHL) seek to provide technical assistance to the government of Philippines, particularly supporting the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP), the Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) and the Parole and Probation Administration (PPA) in their effort to improve the jail/prison management.
Within the current context of extreme overcrowding, the jail and prison authorities in the Philippines are challenged to define and implement policies that promote effective security and safety while respecting fundamental human rights, and to promote disengagement from violence and the rehabilitation of offenders with a view to reducing risks of recidivism upon release.
The COVID-19 crisis poses more challenges to the already-overburdened prison systems. People deprived of liberty are likely to be more vulnerable to an outbreak than the general population because of the proximity and confined conditions in which they live. This pandemic demonstrated the need for jail/prison systems to be better prepared and equipped to handle public health emergencies, beyond the COVID-19.
Given the current situation in the Philippines, the importance and urgency of supporting jail/prison systems to help them better cope with the current pandemic as well as promote the treatment of inmates properly are obvious. Sound prison management and community corrections in line with international standards are significantly important regardless of the situation on the pandemic.
OBJECTIVES OF THE ASSIGNMENT
Under the purview of the Programme Office in the Philippines (POPHL) in Manila with the supervision of the Regional Office for Southeast Asia and the Pacific (ROSEAP), the consultant will implement assigned tasks to address capacity development for criminal justice systems in the Philippines, in close cooperation with the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP), the Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) and the?Parole and Probation Administration (PPA) and in consultation with other relevant partners and stakeholders.
DURATION OF ASSIGNMENT, DUTY STATION AND EXPECTED PLACES OF TRAVEL
Maximum of two hundred forty-five (245) workdays from March 2021.
The duty station is home-based. No travel to the Philippines is required before the restrictions on overseas travel are lifted.
