    Mongolia: Individual Consultancy for Corporate Social Responsibility and Partnerships in Mongolia (National)

    Organization: UN Children’s Fund
    Country: Mongolia
    Closing date: 22 Oct 2018

    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, advocacy

    Mongolia offers promising prospects for a socially responsible private sector that, with proper technical assistance, incorporates children’s rights into their everyday business operations and contributes to the country’s human capital in the long term.

    The National Release of the Child Rights and Business Principles (CRBP) held by UNICEF in December 2014 marked the first step in the country office’s journey to engage with the Mongolian private sector to incorporate principles that respect and support children’s rights into their everyday business operations in the areas where their businesses interface with children – the marketplace the workplace and the community.

    Moving forward, one of the key strategies of the UNICEF Mongolia Country Programme 2017 – 2021 is continued engagement with the country’s growing private sector, now accounting for 75 per cent of the GDP (World Bank, 2014), to influence CSR – especially with the prominent mining industry – to leverage its potential in achieving results for children and replication of successful interventions. Moreover, the programme will support the implementation of the child rights and business principles.

    To support the achievement of the CSR Output in the new Country Programme, the services of an individual national consultant was contracted from 01 November 2017 until 16 September 2018.

    The main results from this consultancy were:

  • The country assessment “CFB: local business practices and legal environment” has been completed and the report will be launched soon.
  • A comprehensive strategy for UNICEF Mongolia to engage with the Private Sector (PS).
  • The private sector champions to support children continued their commitments they further developed their Child Friendly Business (CFB) practices. Private and public sector partnerships on leveraging PS resources for the programme continued with the focus on online child protection, Water, Hygiene and Sanitation ( WASH), Early Development and Childhood (ECD), education, youth and air pollution etc.
  • The multi-stakeholders’ platform was established engaging both senior and technical level government officials from relevant relevant ministries and agencies, communications regulatory committee as well as the national police department.
  • The PS and relevant public institutions in the provincial programme areas have been sensitized for them to have a basic understanding on CFB and its principles, and they have identified priorities for PS engagement and support within the Child Friendly Community (CFC) in each of their communities.
  • A foundation for the partnership with Oyu Tolgoi (OT) was created, with the signing of the Letter of Intent (LOI).
  • Reviewed UNICEF Mongolia engagement with PS for Youth and put together two cases for PS & Youth engagement done by the country office.
  • Engagement with the private sector need to be continued and sustained. The consultancy is therefore requested from 1 November 2018 until 30 October 2019.

    How can you make a difference?

    The Consultant will build on and continue the achievement of the UNICEF Mongolia CSR output through on-going assistance in the day-to-day management of partnerships with private sector platforms and individual businesses, build potential additional partnership opportunities based on the previously made engagements and discussions with the private sectors as well as for the coordination of programmatic inputs into specific partnerships. The consultant will support the adaptation of training modules for tailoring its delivery and roll-out to specific partners and scaling up through the partnership for instance with major business platform(s). The consultant will also contribute to strengthen the private and public partnerships established for instance in areas of online child protection, ECD, WASH, education, air pollution and youth including any new areas of the programme. The work will also include : (i) support to the private and public sector partnerships for the gradual implementation of the recommendations of the country assessment “CFB: local business practices and legal environment” addressed to the public and private sectors and (ii) support to UNICEF Mongolia and partners to determine the best strategic approach to integrate the CSR into the country programme 2017-2021 and beyond.

    Haiti: Coordinateur programme choléra – Port-au-Prince – HAITI – H/F

    Organization: Croix-Rouge Française
    Country: Haiti
    Closing date: 14 Nov 2016

    Contexte du poste

    La Croix-Rouge française (CRF) est présente en Haïti aux côté de la Croix-Rouge haïtienne (CRh) depuis 1994. L’action et le partenariat de long terme entre la CRF et la CRh ont été fortement marqués par le séisme catastrophique du 12 janvier 2010 et l’épidémie de choléra apparue la même année. A l’image de l’ensemble du Mouvement CRCR, la CRF a dû adapter sa réponse et ses moyens qui ont fortement augmentés et se sont massivement orientés vers les populations victimes, tout en assurant la continuité de l’action engagée depuis 1994, notamment dans le département de l’Artibonite.

    Quatre ans après le séisme, la CRF s’est donné plusieurs objectifs. Elle souhaite assurer une transition progressive entre les projets de relève post urgence et les projets orientés vers le développement et la prise en charge des populations en situation de vulnérabilité chronique en Haïti. La CRF souhaite également intensifier ses efforts de renforcement des capacités de la CRh. Elle participe enfin à la stratégie nationale de lutte contre le choléra visant l’éradication de la maladie à moyen terme.

    C’est dans ce cadre que la CRF a défini sa programmation opérationnelle 2013-2016 dans 2 régions d’intervention : la zone métropolitaine de Port-au-Prince (département de l’Ouest), et le département de l’Artibonite. Enfin, le 4 octobre, l’ouragan Matthew, l’un des plus puissants ouragans de ces dix dernières années, a frappé la pointe sud d’Haïti. La CRF dans un premier temps, procède à des évaluations et actions d’urgence.

    Principaux programmes en cours:

    • Le soutien au Système National de Gestion des Risques des Désastres (SNGRD) (2014-16)

    La réponse aux populations affectées par l’ouragan Matthew: la CRF procède à des évaluations et à la chloration des points d’eau des secteurs où elle intervient habituellement, afin de prévenir les nouvelles flambées de choléra que les inondations risquent d’amplifier.

    United States of America: Senior Manager for Strategic Partnerships

    Organization: Alliance for Peacebuilding
    Country: United States of America
    Closing date: 16 Nov 2016

    The Alliance for Peacebuilding (AfP) leads a community of 106 organizations building peaceful and just societies around the world. We work collaboratively with our members to address issues too large for any one organization to tackle alone. What We Do:

    • Influence by providing viable options to violence; publicizing efforts to build peaceful societies; giving policymakers alternatives to force-based national security; and creating powerful narratives for public media.
    • Innovate by catalyzing new ideas and breaking down silos between different areas of practice.
    • Impact by adding to the capacities and professionalism of our field and harnessing the collective strength of our members.

    The AfP workplace is fast-moving, since we must be responsive to conflict occurring daily around the world, and we must anticipate the needs of our members, partners, and government colleagues in Washington, and abroad. We are a small, dedicated staff, working collaboratively across all of our programs rather than staying in silos. We are a learning organization – constantly evaluating our own progress, and practicing the values of transparency, respect, and mutual that form the core of peacebuilding.

    The world is changing rapidly, and peacebuilding must contend with the rising politics of hate, the closing of civil society space, and the rise of populist leaders. At the same time, new frameworks for peace such as the Agenda 2030 at the United Nations, and a new emphasis on conflict prevention in the humanitarian and refugee assistance communities, open the door to new partnerships and an amplified scope for action. The Alliance for Peacebuilding seeks to harness the collective energy and expertise of our members during this turbulent time, and to strengthen the voice of peace.

    Job Summary

    AfP is seeking a Senior Manager of Strategic Partnerships to work in our Washington DC Headquarters. This position will report to the CEO and President, or her delegate. We are seeking a highly motivated, entrepreneurial candidate who can (1) mobilize AfP’s membership of 107 organizations and amplify the power of their work; (2) reach out across sectors to attract new members and partners to AfP; (3) help AfP develop corporate and private sector partnerships; and (4) work collaboratively with AfP senior staff to attract financial resources through partnerships with foundations, individual donors, and other funding sources.

    We are seeking someone who is passionate about peacebuilding, works effectively and happily on a team, and constantly seeks to bring value and new ideas to our core staff, and to our members and partners. The applicant must have a creative vision for social change, and must be able to listen well to others and integrate multiple perspectives in programming and joint action. The applicant must be very well organized, and must be able to take initiative and responsibility across his or her full portfolio.

    Benefits

    This position has an annual salary range between $60,000-$65,000, payable according to AfP’s bi-monthly payroll schedule, with standard deductions, and an excellent benefits package including health, dental and vision, life, short-term and long-term disability, TIAA-CREF retirement plan with a 5% monthly contribution by AfP, fitness center access, opportunity for 1 telework day/week after 3 months of continuous regular employment, 3 week so paid annual leave, 11 paid holidays and 12 sick days per year, FMLA and bereavement leave, lifetime membership with AfP, and a monthly metro stipend.

    Primary Responsibilities

    • Develop and implement a partnership strategy to increase the reach and impact of our ongoing efforts, and to amplify the voice of the peacebuilding field.
    • Mobilize our membership, building new partnerships, and raising resources. Develop partner networks and strategic partnerships in the U.S. and overseas.
    • Coordinate the management of ongoing relationships with existing partners and, where relevant, leverage those relationships to bolster their collective impact.
    • Conceptualize new strategic initiatives that could be built around or benefit from corporate, foundation, government, bilateral organizations or other partnerships.
    • Work jointly with AfP staff to develop and implement AfP’s communication strategy.
    • Work closely with AfP substantive programs to seek opportunities for partnership engagement, and integrate the findings of AfP’s substantive work into the larger member and partnership network.
    • In conjunction with the CEO and Senior Director, expand and diversify the funding base/pipeline to increase AfP’s major initiatives and existing collaborations.
    • Develop and manage events in support of AfP’s strategic initiatives and fundraising, including AfP’s annual conference every spring (400 attendees, over two to three days, with one day held at the United States Institute of Peace).

    Qualifications

    • Bachelor’s degree required; Master’s degree in a field related to peacebuilding or international affairs strongly preferred. MBA and JD degrees qualify.
    • At least 7 years of experience in an area of social change, with a preference for work dealing with international issues.
    • Proven ability to find strategic partnerships that have led both to effective social change, and also to increased revenue and contracts.
    • Proven ability to negotiate and work with high level executives, including diplomats, policymakers, and NGO leaders.
    • Strong analytic skills (financial, planning, operational).
    • Demonstrated drive to solve problems in a team environment and leading with high energy and a positive attitude.

    Afghanistan: Afghanistan – A Grants & Reporting Officer

    Organization: Première Urgence – Aide Médicale Internationale
    Country: Afghanistan
    Closing date: 01 Oct 2016

    Première Urgence Internationale (PUI) is a non-governmental, non-profit, non-political and non-religious international aid organization. Our teams are committed to supporting civilians’ victims of marginalization and exclusion, or hit by natural disasters, wars and economic collapses, by answering their fundamental needs. Our aim is to provide emergency relief to uprooted people in order to help them recover their dignity and regain self-sufficiency. The association leads in average 190 projects by year in the following sectors of intervention: food security, health, nutrition, construction and rehabilitation of infrastructures, water, sanitation, hygiene and economic recovery. PUI is providing assistance to around 5 million people in 20 countries – in Africa, Asia, Middle East, Eastern Europe and France

    Humanitarian situation and needs

    At the 2012 Tokyo Conference, Afghanistan announced its road map toward self-reliance. However, great challenges remain to be overcome. Security, social and economic development, good governance, and justice are, among other issues, essential pre- conditions in order to achieve the country’s ambitious objectives. The withdrawal of the majority of international troops in 2014 as well as the recent change in government leadership has raised questions concerning the stability of the country. In fact, 2014 witnessed the progressive withdrawal of International Military forces an increased level of violence with civilians paying the highest price, a rise in unemployment and criminality.

    Rebuilding and strengthening the health-care system is still a priority in Afghanistan with the country-wide continuation of the implementation of the Basic Package of Health Services (BPHS) and the Essential Package of Hospital Services (EPHS) initiated in 2003 and 2005. PUI is a key implementing partner for both the BPHS and EPHS programmes. However, the coverage of those programmes remain insufficient and many gaps still have to be addressed, especially dealing with emergency response (war and natural disasters victims).

    Our action in the field

    We strongly believe that PUI’s action can contribute to improving the lives of Afghans over the different conflicts and political changes. Therefore, and despite the uncertainty brought by the “transition” in 2014 and onwards, PUI reaffirms its commitment to support the Afghan people through its strategy based on its experience of the country and expertise in health interventions. Added to the implementation of national health system in two provinces since the beginning of 2003, PUI in Afghanistan has decided to implement interventions on emergency preparedness and medical interventions for conflict-affected populations. PUI is operational in Daykundi province in Central Afghanistan and Kunar and Nangarhar provinces of Eastern Afghanistan.

    With 2015 being the worst years on record in terms of civilian casualties since 2001, it is crucial to have health staff prepared and equipped for mass casualties and population displacements. Linked with this increase of violence, PUI has developed Psycho social emergency supports to trauma victims.

    In the coming years, PUI also plans to develop integrated projects with WASH, rehabilitation and economic recovery activities.

    As part of our activities in Afghanistan, we are looking for a Grants & Reporting Officer.

    Under the direct supervision of the Deputy Head of Mission the Grants Officer is responsible of the drafting and review of concept papers, proposals and reports. He/She supports the M&E Unit by regular update and follows up of project monitoring tools. He/she gathers all necessary information on the ongoing projects in order to adequately communicate on PUI’s activities. For coordination tasks some support may be requested by the Head of Mission.
