However, a current staff member who holds an appointment at the G-6 or G-7 level may also apply to temporary positions in the Professional category up to and including the P-3 level, subject to meeting all eligibility and other requirements for the position. A staff member holding a temporary appointment shall be regarded as an external candidate when applying for other positions, and may apply for other temporary positions at any level, subject to section 5.7 below and staff rule 4.16 (b) (ii). Therefore, a staff member holding a temporary appointment in the General Service or related categories may only apply to positions within those categories. For full information on eligibility requirements, please refer to section 5 of ST/AI/2010/4Rev.1 on Temporary Appointments.  In its resolution 66/234, the General Assembly further "...stressed that the Secretary General should not recur to the practice of temporarily filling posts in the Professional and higher categories with General Service staff members who have not passed the General Service to Professional category examination other than on an exceptional basis, and requests the Secretary-General to ensure that temporary occupation of such posts by the General Service staff shall not exceed a period of one year, effective 1 January 2013...". Consequently, eligible candidates in the General Service or related categories for temporary job openings in the Professional category that have not passed the competitive examination may be selected only on an exceptional basis endorsed by the Office of Human Resources Management where no other suitable candidate could be identified. Upon separation from service, including, but not limited to, expiration or termination of, or resignation from, a fixed-term, continuing or permanent appointment, a former staff member will be ineligible for re-employment on the basis of a temporary appointment for a period of 31 days following the separation. In the case of separation from service on retirement, a former staff member will be ineligible for re-employment for a period of three months following the separation. This equally applies, mutatis mutandis, with respect to a former or current staff member who has held or holds an appointment in another entity applying the United Nations Staff Regulations and Rules and who applies for a temporary position with the Secretariat. Retirees above the mandatory age of separation who wish to be considered for the current temporary job opening must indicate the reason for their last separation as "retirement." Such retirees shall not be employed by the Organization, unless (a) the operational requirements of the Organization cannot be met by staff members who are qualified and available to perform the required functions; and (b) the proposed employment would not adversely affect the career development or redeployment opportunities of other staff members and represents both a cost-effective and operationally sound solution to meet the needs of the service. Subject to the funding source of the position, this temporary job opening may be limited to candidates based at the duty station. While this temporary assignment may provide the successful applicant with an opportunity to gain new work experience, the selection for this position is for a limited period and has no bearing on the future incumbency of the post. An external candidate selected for this position is bound by the prevailing condition of the staff selection system under ST/AI/2010/3, as amended, and ST/AI/2010/4/Rev.1.  A staff member holding a temporary appointment who is recruited in the Professional and above categories on a temporary appointment, and placed on a position authorized for one year or longer may not apply for or be reappointed to his/her current position within six months of the end of his/her current service. This provision does not apply to staff members holding temporary appointments and placed on positions authorized for one year or more in duty stations authorized for peacekeeping operations or special political missions. Staff members of the United Nations common system organizations who will reach the mandatory age of separation or retirement within the duration of the current temporary need period are not eligible to apply. Staff members are not eligible to apply for the current temporary job opening if they are unable to serve the specified duration of temporary need before reaching the mandatory age of separation. Submitting an application or selection for the current temporary job opening does not delay or increase the mandatory age of separation. The United Nations is Secretariat and is committed to achieving 50/50 gender balance in its staff. Female candidates are strongly encouraged to apply for these positions. An impeccable record for integrity and professional ethical standards is essential. The expression "Internal candidates", shall mean staff members who have been recruited after a competitive examination under staff rule 4.16 or after the advice of a central review body under staff rule 4.15. Please note that candidates will be required to meet the requirements of Article 101, paragraph 3, of the Charter as well as the requirements of the position. The United Nations is committed to the highest standards of efficiency, competence and integrity for all its human resources, including but not limited to respect for international human rights and humanitarian law. Candidates may be subject to screening against these standards, including but not limited to whether they have committed, or are alleged to have committed criminal offences and/or violations of international human rights law and international humanitarian law.

In relation to the requirements of the job opening, applicants must provide complete and accurate information pertaining to their qualifications, including their education, work experience, and language skills. Each applicant must bear in mind that submission of incomplete or inaccurate applications may render that applicant ineligible for consideration for the job opening.

IMPORTANT: Candidates found suitable and not selected for the announced duty station, may be selected for deployment to other duty stations. The selection will be for similar functions with similar requirements at the same level.  United Nations Considerations   According to article 101, paragraph 3, of the Charter of the United Nations, the paramount consideration in the employment of the staff is the necessity of securing the highest standards of efficiency, competence, and integrity. Candidates will not be considered for employment with the United Nations if they have committed violations of international human rights law, violations of international humanitarian law, sexual exploitation, sexual abuse, or sexual harassment, or if there are reasonable grounds to believe that they have been involved in the commission of any of these acts. The term "sexual exploitation" means any actual or attempted abuse of a position of vulnerability, differential power, or trust, for sexual purposes, including, but not limited to, profiting monetarily, socially or politically from the sexual exploitation of another. The term "sexual abuse" means the actual or threatened physical intrusion of a sexual nature, whether by force or under unequal or coercive conditions. The term "sexual harassment" means any unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature that might reasonably be expected or be perceived to cause offence or humiliation, when such conduct interferes with work, is made a condition of employment or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment, and when the gravity of the conduct warrants the termination of the perpetrator's working relationship. Candidates who have committed crimes other than minor traffic offences may not be considered for employment. Due regard will be paid to the importance of recruiting the staff on as wide a geographical basis as possible. The United Nations places no restrictions on the eligibility of men and women to participate in any capacity and under conditions of equality in its principal and subsidiary organs. The United Nations Secretariat is a non-smoking environment. The paramount consideration in the appointment, transfer, or promotion of staff shall be the necessity of securing the highest standards of efficiency, competence, and integrity. By accepting an offer of appointment, United Nations staff members are subject to the authority of the Secretary-General and assignment by him or her to any activities or offices of the United Nations in accordance with staff regulation 1.2 (c).

Programme Officer - P2

Tunisia, Tunis, Tunis - UNICEF

UNICEF works in some of the world's toughest places, to reach the world's most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential. Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone. 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. UNICEF Tunisia is supporting the ongoing reform of the national social protection system for the implementation of social protection floor guarantees, including the children's pillar, through the gradual introduction of a universal allowance for children. In response to the socio-economic impacts of COVID-19 on children, UNICEF has been since 2020 supporting the introduction of specific cash transfers for children from families enrolled in national social assistance programmes. The transfer of allowances to children from poor and vulnerable families is accompanied by complementary activities (cash+ approach) on child protection, early childhood development, food security and nutrition, education etc. to ensure that children receive integrated care that meets all their needs to better address the vulnerabilities they face.  The child allowance programme is complemented by communication campaigns on the start of the school year and on positive parenting, including messages on the importance of early stimulation, vaccination and a balanced diet for young children.  The implementation of the programme requires an important communication and capacity-building component for social workers and the national system. UNICEF Tunisia action and support contribute to the national vision of establishing the national social protection floor, which aims to ensure universal social protection coverage by 2030. In this regard, UNICEF Tunisia actively coordinates all implemented activities and works closely with all national stakeholders and technical and financial partners active in the social protection sector.   How can you make a difference?

UNHCR was created in 1950, during the aftermath of the Second World War, to help millions of Europeans who had fled or lost their homes. UNHCR had three years to complete its work and then disband. Today, over 70 years later, the organization is still hard at work, protecting and assisting refugees around the world. UNHCR workforce is its backbone. The agency is present in 133 countries and as of 2021, it employs over 17,500 people, of whom around nearly 90 per cent are based in the field. UNHCR in Aruba is part of the UNHCR Multi-Country Office in Panama and supports the regional response to outflows of Venezuelans in the Caribbean. UNHCR works with governments in Caribbean countries to develop and strengthen their protections for asylum seekers, refugees, and stateless persons and monitors and reports on the treatment of refugees and stateless persons throughout the Caribbean region. Until 2018, Aruba and Curaçao were among the 23 countries and territories remotely supervised by UNHCR Regional Office for Washington and the Caribbean. In May 2018, UNHCR established an operational presence in Aruba, with a current workforce of 8 in 2022. Aruba and Curaçao host populations estimated at 17,000 Venezuelans in each country as of end 2021. The absolute number of Venezuelans on both islands is relatively low in comparison with other countries hosting Venezuelans in Latin America. Yet, in 2020, Aruba and Curaçao respectively hosted the world's largest and third largest numbers of Venezuelans abroad relative to their population (1 out 6 in Aruba and 1 out of 10 in Curaçao)[1]. Despite being a signatory to the 1967 Protocol, Aruba's mechanism to identify international protection needs is not embedded in national asylum and refugee legislation, as the national legislation is yet to be established. Curacao did not accede to the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees and its 1967 Protocol and the current protection from return available is under Article 3 European Convention of Human Rights. In this legal and political context, UNHCR office in Aruba established its operations with a focus on legal protection and community-based protection in particular. Legal protection entails support to Government asylum and international protection procedures, provision of legal assistance through partners and legal advice and information directly through protection counselling services.  Strategic litigation,  capacity building for government officials, lawyers and para-legals as well as judicial engagement constitutes a significant part of the of protection strategy.  Associate Protection Officer is therefore expected to have a good understanding of the RSD, legal protection , strategic litigation. In addition, along with the legal protection, the operation puts emphasis on the community-based protection mechanisms through partners programmes as well as direct implementation. Communication with communities, helpline,  community-based initiatives and outreach mechanisms are the priority activities for the protection unit. Hence, the Associate Protection Officer is  expected to have a good understanding of the CBP approaches. The incumbent will be the head of the protection team and will be supervising several national staff and therefore is expected also to have good managerial skills.   Living and Working Conditions: Aruba is  a semi-autonomous entity within the Kingdom of the Netherlands located in the southern Caribbean Sea, off the Venezuelan coast. Financial services and tourism are mainstays of Curacao's economy. Aruba lies outside the hurricane belt but has still been mildly affected by hurricanes and by tropical storms and flooding seasonally. It is classified as an A duty station (family) and has good infrastructure (health, housing, banking,  telecommunications, and recreational facilities) and good supply of goods and services, with no particular health hazards.  There is international school teaching in English. Transportation system is not very developed and taxis are not always available and the prices are high. Private vehicle is generally the most feasible transportation means. Driving in Aruba is on the right-hand side of the road. Aruba's main roads are fairly well lit. Nonexistent or hidden and poorly maintained street signs are the major road hazard in Aruba. Therefore, drivers should proceed through intersections with caution. Roads in Aruba are extremely slippery during rainfall In terms of security Aruba is safe and it is rated as security level 1 with no major security risks. Major security risk is theft. Theft of passports, wallets, handbags jewelry and other personal possessions is common. Rental cars and other rental vehicles are popular targets for criminals. It is recommended to avoid carrying large sums of cash or displaying expensive jewelry. Valuables should not be left unattended in hotel rooms, on the beach or in vehicles. There are direct flights to the neighbouring countries as well as to Amsterdam for Europe connections. The cost of living is  high for the region especially for housing and health, but it is easy to find accommodation on the private market. Most of the food is imported as Aruba is a small island with no arable land and no industry. The climate is hot and dry for the most part of the year without major temperature changes and rainy season is not heavy. There are lots of beaches, restaurants, water sports and other recreational facilities as it is a very touristic island. The local language is Papiemento and official language is Dutch. However English and Spanish are widely spoken among the local community.  Working language of UNHCR in Aruba is English     Additional Qualifications Skills LE-Legal Research, LE-Litigation and case management, LE-Litigation and oral and written court advocacy skills, MG-Diplomacy, MG-People Management, MG-Stakeholder Management, PR-Analysis of laws and practice relevant to human rights, PR-Asylum claims assessment and determination for international protection, PR-Community-based Protection - Principles and methodologies, PR-Drafting and reviewing inputs to human rights mechanisms   Education BA: International Law (Required), BA: Law (Required), BA: Political Science (Required)   Certifications HCR Protection Learning Program - UNHCR   Work Experience Number of Persons of Concern Served, Protection, Workforce to Supervise, Working with Persons of Concern: Asylum Seekers   Competencies Accountability, Analytical thinking, Client & results orientation, Commitment to continuous learning, Communication, Empowering & building trust, Judgement & decision making, Negotiation & conflict resolution, Organizational awareness, Political awareness, Teamwork & collaboration   UNHCR Salary Calculator https://icsc.un.org/Home/SalaryScales  Compendium Bi-annual Compendium 2022 Part B ?
