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.
This job description is a direct response to UNDP’s improved business model in Uruguay. It envisions a new office structure adapted to current and future needs of the country, underpinning its advisory and programmatic offer while at the same time delivering solid implementation support. It also promotes a more collaborative approach to work across the office and with external partners.
The new structure defines the skillsets required to position UNDP in the new NCC context, adding substantive value through thought leadership and innovation, mobilizing strategic resources and ensuring projects are implemented in a smooth, efficient and transparent manner. This also entails engaging on the most pressing and transformational development challenges of the country.
Through its portfolio, the CO has tailored localized integral solutions to specific sustainable development issues and is crafting methodologies and toolboxes to deploy and escalate them across the country. This strategy requires excellent programme management and an organizational structure that reinforces the entire programming life cycle including planning, implementation, oversight, monitoring and evaluation, communications and efficient operations. The new structure will strengthen UNDP´s role as a learning organization ‘fit-for-purpose’ to deliver on Agenda 2030. It is designed to provide the foundation for the whole public policy life cycle with a special emphasis at the sub-national level that, as an engagement strategy, is expected to allow new areas of joint work and resource mobilization.
Under the overall guidance of the Operations Analyst and direct supervision of the Finance Associate, the Finance Clerk provides financial services ensuring high quality, accuracy, and consistency of work. The Finance Assistant promotes a client-oriented approach consistent with UNDP rules and regulations. For Internal Control Framework purposes, the incumbent may be required to provide support to the vendor profile creation, as well as an alternate requestor.
Incumbent is expected to display initiative, a positive approach and a strong client orientation in close collaboration with programme and finance teams. As such, s/he is expected to be flexible in performing other emerging tasks and additional duties as required by the direct supervisor or senior management.
