And we never give up.   For every child, hope The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does - in programmes, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children's rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favoritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life - in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions - her or his rights are violated. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education and protection of a society's most disadvantaged citizens - addressing inequity - not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfill their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries. This is why the focus on equity is so vital. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable development of nations.   How can you make a difference? You will be accountable for providing leadership and facilitating the processes that will ensure a well-coordinated, strategic, adequate, coherent, and effective CP humanitarian response through a mobilized, adequately resourced group of agencies, organizations, NGOs etc. The purpose is also to assist the state authorities in CP sub-cluster visioning, strategy formulation and the articulation of a 'Road Map' to provide adequate CP responses to the conflict affected populations (both IDPs and refugees). The post will also function in close collaboration with the SCI as the CP sub-cluster Co-Coordinator and the Federal Government of Iraq (GOI) and KRG, who have responsibility for the overall quality of CP service in Iraq. The post is expected to synergize the work of CP sub-cluster partners (UN Agencies, NGO, CSOs etc.) supporting humanitarian actions in Iraq, working closely with other IASC Clusters working within the Iraq Inter Cluster Coordination Group (ICCG), and the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) within its mandate to ensure a coherent response to emergencies in Iraq.   To qualify as an advocate for every child you will have? - Education: An advanced university degree in one of the following fields is required: international development, human rights, psychology, sociology, international law, or another relevant social science field. - Experience: A minimum of eight years of professional experience in social development planning and management in child protection related areas, at the international level, is required. Experience working in a developing country is considered as an asset. Relevant experience in programme development in child protection related areas in a UN system agency or organization is considered as an asset. Experience in both development and humanitarian contexts is an added advantage. - Language Requirements: Fluency in English is required. Knowledge of another official UN language or local language of the duty station is considered as an asset.   For every Child, you demonstrate? The value and competencies required for this post are?. Core Values - Care - Respect - Integrity - Trust - Accountability Core Competencies - Nurtures, Leads and Manages People (2) - Demonstrates Self Awareness and Ethical Awareness (3) - Works Collaboratively with others (3) - Builds and Maintains Partnerships (3) - Innovates and Embraces Change (3) - Thinks and Acts Strategically (3) - Drives to achieve impactful results (3) - Manages ambiguity and complexity (3) Functional Competencies - Analyzing (3) - Deciding and Initiating action (2) - Applying technical expertise (3)   You can learn about our values and competency framework at https://www.unicef.org/careers/get-prepared.

UNICEF also adheres to strict child safeguarding principles. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks, and will be expected to adhere to these standards and principles.   Remarks Mobility is a condition of international professional employment with UNICEF and an underlying premise of the international civil service.
