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.
It is part of UNDP’s duty of care as an employer to ensure that all our personnel work in a safe and healthy environment that contributes to their self-fulfillment and protects their dignity. As the organization is increasingly operating in highly complex and at times high-risk environments, it is UNDP’s responsibility to protect its personnel and care for their wellbeing.
To fulfill our duty of care towards our employees during the COVID19 pandemic and acknowledging the unprecedented psychosocial hardship our staff has been experiencing in 2020, and that is likely to continue in 2021, UNDP is providing additional psychosocial support in form of written material and bespoke psychosocial support sessions to staff and their families, and for supervisors.
Additionally, the re-emergence of protracted conflicts and delicate socio-political situation in some Russian-speaking countries requires additional support to enable staff to stay and deliver in difficult circumstances and despite high stress levels.
The purpose of this procurement exercise is to contract an individual consultant who will deliver remote psychosocial support to UNDP, with a particular attention to Russian-speaking countries, in the form of webinars, bespoke support sessions, and written communication.
