The Spotlight Initiative is a global, multi-year partnership between the European Union and the United Nations to eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls by 2030. Launched with a seed funding commitment of €500 million from the European Union, the Spotlight Initiative represents an unprecedented global effort to invest in gender equality and women’s empowerment as a precondition and driver for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. The initiative builds on knowledge and lessons learned from past programmes.
As a project office, the Secretariat of the Spotlight Initiative supports the Operational Steering Committee and is comprised of a Management Unit and Technical Unit. The two units work in close collaboration and in a complementary manner.
The Management Unit provides operational and administrative support to the Governing Body and Operational Steering Committees. It is responsible for the coordination and day-to-day management of the Initiative. The Management Unit also codifies policies and rules of procedure into an Operations Manual and produces a Risk Management Strategy. Additionally, the Management Unit provides strategic advice and quality control over the implementation of the initiative and coordinates meetings. It facilitates collaboration and communication between the Executive Office of the Secretary-General, recipient United Nations organizations, and the Resident Coordinators regarding the operations, when necessary.
The Management Unit is looking for up to two junior consultants in the area of general country programme support to support the functions of the Management Unit.
The Junior Consultant(s) will report to the Monitoring and Evaluation Manager (P4).
