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.
UNDP has a personnel base of approximately 20,000 individuals in over 130 different countries, the vast majority of whom do not have English as a mother tongue. At the same time, communication has been predominantly informative and in English only.
The Administrator formally launched People for 2030, UNDP’s People Strategy, in June 2019. In response, a transformational reform programme was launched to deliver new capabilities in Human Resources (HR) with the objective “to progressively transform UNDP’s culture and capacity to deliver more and better results”.
The challenge now is to use these new HR capabilities to build an improved working experience for all UNDP personnel so that the aim of People for 2030 can be realized. To achieve this, the sustainable delivery of an informative, engaging and inspirational narrative is essential.
Currently, OHR is developing numerous tools and initiatives to deliver the key messages, and these will continue to be developed over the coming months. The current initiatives have been effective, but they are not achieving the desired impact in terms of transformation.
OHR is seeking specific expertise in communication tools, techniques and messages which support the realization of organizational development and transformation by engaging, informing and inspiring UNDPs personnel.
Duties and Responsibilities
The objective of this consultancy is to; review OHR’s current communication activities around People for 2030, UNDP’s People Strategy, make recommendations for improvements to these activities and develop new communication tools, methodologies and messages. These recommendations must take into account UNDP’s communication practices and limitations, and the ability of OHR to continue to use the recommended activities once the consultancy has concluded. The aim of these changes is to improve the way we inform, and actively engage UNDP personnel with the new Human Resources capabilities which have recently been introduced.
OHR’s overall objective in this regard is to optimize the transformational process which is currently underway in the realization of People for 2030.
Always with a consideration for the limitations of both OHR resources and UNDP practices and procedures for communication, the consultant will;

Please note that only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.
Candidates obtaining a minimum of 70% (490 points) of the maximum obtainable points for the technical criteria (70 points) shall be considered for the financial evaluation.
Financial evaluation - Total 30% (30 points)
The following formula will be used to evaluate financial proposal:
p = y (µ/z), where
p = points for the financial proposal being evaluated
y = maximum number of points for the financial proposal
µ = price of the lowest priced proposal
z = price of the proposal being evaluated
Candidate obtaining the highest combined scores in the combined score of Technical and Financial evaluation will be considered technically qualified and will be offered to enter into contract with UNDP.
