Antecedentes

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.

UN Women Jordan Country Office supports the Government of Jordan to implement global norms and standards on gender equality and women’s empowerment; promotes women’s economic empowerment; promotes the women, peace and security agenda; and implements a resilience and empowerment model for Syrian refugee women and vulnerable Jordanian women. Working across the humanitarian-peace-development nexus, the country office is implementing its Strategic Note for the period 2018-2022 and is prioritizing coherence and interlinkages across its projects and programmes and across UN Women’s triple mandate of operational, coordination and normative work. This requires effective implementation, monitoring and reporting on progress and results and coordination with key stakeholders in government, civil society, the international community and the UN.

Reporting to the Country Representative, Jordan, the Deputy Country Representative is responsible for the day-to-day management of the Country Office (CO). The incumbent is responsible for substantially contributing to the design, implementation, management and oversight of the country programme and to the operations supporting its implementation to ensure effective and efficient delivery of results as planned in UN Women’s Strategic Plan and the CO plans.
