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. Much of this works takes place at the national/country level in which UN Women either have a Country Representative on site to manage this programme of work, or a Representative covering several countries where an integrated multi-country programme (MCO) is in place.
The South Sudan Country Office has developed a Strategic Note 2014-2016 in line with the UN Women Global Strategy, the UN Women Eastern and Southern Africa Region strategy, the South Sudan Development Plan 2014-2016, and the United Nations Development Assistance Framework 2014-2016. UN Women in South Sudan has identified four impact areas, namely, women lead and participate in decision making at all levels; women, especially the poorest and most excluded are economically empowered and benefit from development; women and girls live a life free of violence; peace and security and humanitarian actions in South Sudan are shaped by women leadership and participation.
The Programme Specialist reports directly to the UN Women Representative and works in close collaboration with the Deputy Representative to ensure that the programme under his or her portfolio is aligned to the rest of the Country Programme. The incumbent is expected to support the implementation of programmes, particularly the women’s economic empowerment programme in South Sudan. He/she also plays a key role in ensuring effective use and management of UN Women resources in compliance with UN women programming and operational policies and regulations.

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.
