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.
Japan has become one of UN Women’s top donors and has strengthened its focus on gender equality over the past few years. Recognizing the importance of Japan in development assistance, a UN Women Japan Liaison Office (JLO) was established in Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo in 2015. A UN Women presence in Japan provides a strategic entry point and an opportunity to liaise with the Government of Japan, parliamentarians and key decision makers, the UN Women National Committee in Japan, the private sector, the media, academic and civil society. It is also an opportunity to work closely with other UN entities based in Tokyo. The work of the UN Women Japan Liaison Office is shaped to contribute to UN Women’s Strategic Plan 2019-2021.
The strategic focus is on resource mobilization and partnership development in the area of public and political advocacy with, and substantive support to, Japan on issues pertaining to UN Women’s mandate to advance gender equality and women’s empowerment and rights.
Under the supervision of the Director of the Japan Liaison Office (JLO), the Partnerships and Resource Mobilization Specialist will provide technical support to the development and coordination of JLO’s strategic partnerships with its all stakeholders, both public and private sector, as well as enhance the cooperation with Bunkyo-ku with a view to increasing the visibility of the partnership.

In July 2010, the United Nations General Assembly created UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. The creation of UN Women came about as part of the UN reform agenda, bringing together resources and mandates for greater impact. It merges and builds on the important work of four previously distinct parts of the UN system (DAW, OSAGI, INSTRAW and UNIFEM), which focused exclusively on gender equality and women's empowerment.
