Context and Purpose of the Consultancy:
UNICEF is leading efforts to procure and supply COVID-19 vaccines in what could possibly be the world’s largest and fastest ever global vaccination operation, in collaboration with the PAHO Revolving Fund and as part of the global vaccine plan (COVAX Facility), led by Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. UNICEF is working with manufacturers and partners on the procurement of vaccine doses as well as freight, logistics and storage of COVID-19 vaccines for 92 low and lower middle-income countries.
To respond to the increased demand from countries and partners seeking COVID-19 Outbreak response commodities through UNICEF, there is a need to provide additional staffing surge support.

Two years of professional experience in human resource management in an international organization and/or large corporation is required, preferably with UNICEF or any other UN organisation.
