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.
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. Placing women’s rights at the center of all its efforts, UN Women leads and coordinates United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world. It provides strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors. Together, UN Women in Tunisia and Libya form a Cluster Office with joint management and operational team.
In Tunisia, UN Women is currently focusing on the following Impact Areas under Strategic Note (SN) 2018-2021:
An SN articulates UN Women’s contribution to achieving national priorities, goals, and results set out in the UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF), with an indication of the resources needed to achieve such results. It includes information on the context, lessons learned, proposed program including the corresponding Theory of Change (ToC), partnerships and coordination, sustainability strategy, program management and operations, monitoring, knowledge management and evaluation, resource mobilization, communication, and advocacy, as well as risk management.
In the field, the SN represents a multi-year programming instrument that translates UN Women’s Strategic Plan at the country level and adapts it to the local context and priorities, in alignment with the UNSDCF/ The SN should be finalized once the UNSCDF is completed at the UN Country Team (UNCT) level. Given that the UNSDCF 2022-2025 has been adopted by the Tunisian Government in December 2020, in 2021, the Conflict Cluster office for Tunisia is starting the elaboration of its SN 2022-2025. For that purpose, the office is looking to hire a Result Based Planning Specialist. Under the direct guidance and supervision of the Planning and Coordination Specialist, the overall supervision of the Deputy Country Representative, and the Country Representative, the International consultant will support a result-oriented and evidence-based approach to UN Women strategic planning at the country level.

In July 2010, the United Nations General Assembly created UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. The creation of UN Women came about as part of the UN reform agenda, bringing together resources and mandates for greater impact. It merges and builds on the important work of four previously distinct parts of the UN system (DAW, OSAGI, INSTRAW, and UNIFEM), which focused exclusively on gender equality and women's empowerment.
