    Nepal: Individual Consultant for Creation of an Induction/Onboarding packet for UNICEF Regional Office for South Asia

    Wed, 19 Feb 2020 03:33:01 +0000

    Organization: UN Children's Fund
    Country: Nepal
    Closing date: 04 Mar 2020

    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, a future

    How can you make a difference?

    1. Rationale:

    UNICEF ROSA recognizes the importance of an effective onboarding and orientation programme, and is committed to ensuring that new staff members are provided with the guidance, resources and information they need to fully settle into their jobs easily, and as quickly as possible. As orientation and induction of new staff members is a collaborative effort that involves human resources, hiring units and all other teams within the office, a programme that provides linkages and clarifies the roles of each team is essential. Therefore, the existing programme is deemed insufficient and needs to be revamped for more detail, clarity and optimal user experience.

    The Joint Consultative meeting (JCC), during its last meeting in 2019 also buttressed the need for a well-structured orientation and onboarding programme that meets the needs of all stakeholders, and agreed that an Expert is needed to support the development of a consolidated, contemporary and best-practice-based onboarding and orientation programme in ROSA.

    This assignment requires that a huge amount of time be dedicated to research, consultations, writing and editing, and therefore cannot be successfully completed by a regular staff member.

    2. Purpose:

    The purpose of this consultancy is to support the development of a comprehensive staff onboarding and orientation programme or tool that meets the needs of all stakeholders in UNICEF ROSA. This includes developing an SOP and workflow, creating a guideline for orientation briefing, delineating roles and updating content on the ROSA Induction page on AGORA, as well as including other best practices.

    3. Key Assignments/Tasks:

  • Draft and administer a survey to staff members that have joined their posts within the past one year and document findings that can help design the updated programme or tool.
  • Conduct research on induction best practices within UNICEF, other UN and the private sector and document best practices for inclusion in the new programme
  • Collate and review all currently available induction/onboarding materials to determine what needs to be updated, retained or removed.
  • Match what is available against the needs and requirements of stakeholders as gathered from survey results. For the gaps that are identified, determine what is required to fill them.
  • Organize a detailed outline of documentation to be available and actions to be taken with new staff members from pre-arrival, orientation briefing and onboarding. This should include information on work context e.g. RO office roles and linkages with country offices
  • Draft a detailed SOP/workflow in line with global guidelines, specifying the roles of each participant in the orientation and onboarding process
  • Update the ROSA induction portal
  • 4. Key Deliverables:

    Inception Report: To include a) outcome of short survey on orientation/onboarding experiences and needs of new staff; b) outcome of consultations with hiring managers c) Research findings on best practices within UNICEF, other UN agencies and the private sector d) A gap analysis of where the needs are not presently met; and e) an outline and plan for the remainder of the assignment.

    SOP/Workflow for the Orientation/onboarding: Prepare a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP), an induction workflow specifying the roles of all stakeholders and a brief guide for orientation briefings.

    The ROSA induction portal: Update the ROSA induction portal, add new information and if possible

    Note:Duration of the contract is 26 days (within 2 1/2 months from the start of the contract). Please submit your application along with your financial proposal (fee) for this consultancy. Applications without the financial proposal will not be considered.

    • Ensure that the program deploys an effective collaborating, learning and adapting approach, such that the activity is able to evolve in a changing context to achieve desired outcomes.

    • Ensure that program strategies and activities directly engage with local stakeholders to promote self-reliance and sustainable outcomes among the beneficiary population.

    • Oversee the program’s security management approach, working with country office counterparts.

    Traduction du français à l’anglais du rapport d’analyse de conflits dans la région de Bamingui Bangoran. Projet Rapid Response in CAR

    Tue, 18 Feb 2020 19:41:51 +0000

    Organization: Search for Common Ground
    Closing date: 29 Feb 2020

    Contexte

    Depuis sa création, Search for Common Ground (Search) a pour mission de transformer la manière dont les individus ont l’habitude de traiter les conflits dans le monde. Elle a passé des décennies à relever les défis les plus difficiles relatifs aux conflits dévastateurs dans des pays tels que le Libéria, Israël et la Palestine, en passant par le travail actuel dans 34 pays d'Afrique, d'Asie et du Moyen-Orient. Search a pour objectif d’aider les parties en conflit à comprendre leurs différences et à agir sur leurs points communs.

    Il est grand temps aujourd’hui d'investir dans les initiatives de consolidation de la paix et de cohésion sociale en République centrafricaine. L'expérience a montré que les villes qui sont en apparence stables en RCA peuvent rapidement dégénérer en violences meurtrières, à mesure que les allégeances des groupes armés se modifient, provoquant des affrontements entre eux ou avec les forces armées de l'État ou la MINUSCA.
    Search pense qu’en travaillant de manière préventive, il est possible de faire en sorte que les efforts de prévention, de stabilisation et de développement de la violence répondent aux facteurs de conflit, engagent des défenseurs de la paix et reconnaissent les diviseurs et les connecteurs. Pour ce faire, nous avons besoin d’une compréhension plus profonde de la dynamique des conflits dans la ville de Ndele et dans la grande région environnante afin de déterminer quelles stratégies et approches pourraient être les plus efficaces pour ouvrir la voie à la réconciliation, à une paix durable et au développement économique.

    Search propose de mener une étude en vue d’avoir une vue actuelle et détaillée des dynamiques de conflit existantes dans la région de Bamingui Bangoran et de fournir des recommandations sur la mise en oeuvre des programmations sensibles au conflit, en veillant à ce que ces programmes soient conçus pour s'appuyer sur les connecteurs existants et pour éviter d'aggraver les divisions.

    Spécifiquement, les objectifs de cette analyse sont de:

    Objectif spécifique 1: Examiner de près le contexte actuel en ce qui concerne les facteurs qui poussent et qui retiennent les communautés à s'engager dans les conflits violents dans les zones ciblées, en mettant particulièrement l’accent sur les attitudes, les perceptions et les normes des communautés face aux conflits;

    Objectif spécifique 2: Acquérir une compréhension approfondie des acteurs clés qui influencent les conflits (spoilers et facilitateurs de la paix), des réseaux et des canaux de communication au niveau local, susceptibles de conduire, transformer et prévenir les conflits violents;

    Objectif spécifique 3: Formuler des recommandations pour les programmes de consolidation de la paix, humanitaires et de développement, afin de planifier ou d’adapter les projets en fonction des spécificités du contexte et de la dynamique changeante des conflits.
    L’étude a eu lieu dans la région de Bamingui Bangoran , plus précisément à Ndele et villages de Bangbali, Djamassinda, Koundi, Alihou,Takara,Kotissaka,Bissigou.

    United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland: Research Associate: Realigning Response to Protracted Displacement

    Tue, 18 Feb 2020 16:32:51 +0000

    Organization: Cardiff University
    Country: United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
    Closing date: 28 Feb 2020

    Salary: £33,797 - £40,322 per annum (Grade 6)

    Cardiff University has recently been awarded GCRF funds to contribute to a research project on protracted displacement, led by IIED (International Institute for Environment & Development). The research will examine the potential of an urban response to long-term displacement, assessing how cities can foster displaced people's self-reliance and local integration in ways that benefit host governments and communities. Fieldwork includes a large-scale study of displacement experiences, comparing cities and camps in Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Jordan and Kenya. The ultimate goal of the research project is to improve the well-being and productive livelihoods of displaced people to enable their full participation in urban life.

    The three main aims of the research project are:

    1. To build an evidence base for national and local governments, humanitarian agencies and donors on the opportunities and challenges of hosting displaced people in camps vs. urban areas.
    2. To promote an assessment of current responses to urban protracted displacement, raising awareness of unmet need.
    3. To build the capacity of municipal authorities, displaced people, organisations of the urban poor and other local actors to use participatory planning to underpin development-based solutions to forced displacement.

    Cardiff University is leading on research in Ethiopia and on the livelihoods of displaced people in all four countries.

    The University will appoint a full-time researcher based in Cardiff, on a 2.5-year fixed term contract, to work on this innovative and high-profile research. The successful candidate will be expected to undertake literature reviews and qualitative fieldwork in Ethiopia, Kenya and Jordan. Quantitative data will be generated by another research partner. Travel to Afghanistan will not be required. The researcher will work with the team in qualitative and quantitative data analysis and the drafting of academic journal papers and other research outputs.

    This post is full-time (35 hours per week) fixed term for thirty months and available immediately.

    Please be aware that Cardiff University reserves the right to close this vacancy early should sufficient applications be received.

    Cardiff University is committed to supporting and promoting equality and diversity and to creating an inclusive working environment. We believe this can be achieved through attracting, developing, and retaining a diverse range of staff from many different backgrounds who have the ambition to create a University which seeks to fulfil our social, cultural and economic obligation to Cardiff, Wales, and the world. In supporting our employees to achieve a balance between their work and their personal lives, we will also consider proposals for flexible working or job share arrangements.
