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.
The purpose of this ToR is to recruit a qualified candidate with experience and knowledge necessary to deliver activities within the UNODC Programme Office in Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina) and to support the work of UNODC in the region of South Eastern Europe at large.
The Programme Finance Associate will be responsible for backstopping day-to-day implementation of various UNODC projects and programmes in South Eastern Europe under the overall umbrella of the UNODC Regional Programme for South Eastern Europe. The Programme Finance Associate will be based at the UNODC Programme Office in Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina).
The incumbent will work under the overall framework of the UNODC Regional Programme for South Eastern Europe. He/she carries out his/her functions under the overall guidance and supervision of the Regional Administration and Finance Associate based in Belgrade (Serbia) and the Programme Coordinator in the UNODC Regional Section for Europe and West/Central Asia based in Vienna (Austria), as well as under the additional supervision of the Head of the UNODC Programme Office in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The Programme Finance Associate will be required to support coordination and facilitation of administrative, finance and programme related activities with regard to all UNODC programmes/projects in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the region of South Eastern Europe.
The Regional Programme for South Eastern Europe (2020-2023) provides the overall platform for the UNODC involvement in South East Europe and supports the various thematic areas of the UNODC mandate, structured along three main pillars: (I) Illicit Drug Trafficking and Transnational Organized Crime, (II) Strengthening Criminal Justice, Integrity and Legal Cooperation, (III) Prevention, Treatment, Reintegration and Care. The Programme focuses on priority actions identified in cooperation with the governments in the region and through a dialogue with national, regional and international partners.
South Eastern Europe lies on the most direct route between some of the world’s leading producer and consumer regions of opiates, and likewise serves as a transit corridor for migrants and refugees from Asia and the Middle East to Western Europe; it saw one of the world’s largest population movements in 2015-2016, as well as an influx of foreign terrorist fighters.
These features highlight the challenges faced by the governments of the region in controlling their borders and fighting the smuggling of migrants as well as that of drugs, weapons, and other illicit goods. UNODC has been working with its partners in the region to help them address the various forms of organized crime with which they are confronted by strengthening their capacity in line with international standards and best practices.
The Regional Programme for South Eastern Europe (2020-2023), while building on previous achievements, will further support partner governments in key areas related to EU accession processes while ensuring effective inter-connectivity between national and regional responses in the wider context of the inter-regional drug control approach.
