  • Libya: OTI Deputy Country Representative


    Organization: US Agency for International Development
    Country: Libya
    Closing date: 12 Jun 2017

    The OTI Deputy Country Representative is a full-time Personal Services Contract (PSC) position at the GS-13 equivalent level and located in Libya. Applications for this position are due no later than June 12, 2017 at 1:00pm Eastern Time. For full information about this position, as well as instructions on how to apply, please read the entire solicitation at www.OTIjobs.net.

    INTRODUCTION: The Office of Transition Initiatives (OTI) was created in 1994 as a distinct operating unit within USAID to help local partners advance peace and democracy in priority conflict-prone countries. Seizing critical windows of opportunity, OTI works on the ground to provide fast, flexible, short-term assistance targeted at key transition needs.

    Countries experiencing a significant political transition in the midst of a disaster or emerging from civil conflict have unique needs that cannot be fully addressed by traditional disaster relief. Timely and effective assistance to promote and consolidate peaceful, democratic advances can make the difference between a successful or a failed transition. OTI assists in securing peace by aiding indigenous, mostly non-governmental, civil society and media organizations. OTI uses such mechanisms as support for re-integration of ex-combatants into civilian society; development of initiatives to promote national reconciliation; identification of quick-impact community self-help projects to meet urgent economic needs; and aid to independent media outlets and community-based organizations to help promote informed debate and broaden public participation.

    To respond quickly and effectively and meet its program objectives and mandate OTI retains a group of high level professionals and experts under personal services contracts (PSCs). These knowledgeable and skilled professionals make up the vast majority of the OTI work force and are at its forefront implementing and achieving the organization’s programmatic goals and objectives.

    The OTI program in Libya will support the larger objectives of the U.S. Government and as appropriate any future State Department and USAID presence in Libya. In particular, the OTI program will provide assistance to support the nascent political transition in Libya. In close coordination with the State Department representatives and other USG actors and with consideration of USG priorities, OTI’s rapid and targeted programs will address emerging issues and empower local partners potentially to include non-governmental organizations, civil society groups, media outlets, and local and national government offices to reduce or mitigate conflict, increase transparency and accountability, and foster positive political change.

    DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES:

    • Represent OTI interests during meetings within the Libyan External Office (LEO), host-country government officials, international organizations, indigenous and international NGOS, international donors, and others interested in DCHA/OTI activities;

    • Provide continued guidance on the identification and development of projects that meet OTI funding criteria, further OTI programmatic objectives, and complement other projects and programs implemented by other OTI offices as well as with USG agencies and donor organizations;

    • As requested by Embassies or USAID, provide support for the design and execution of programs that follow OTI’s quick impact programming model. Support to the Libya External Office and other USAID programs may also include attendance and/or facilitation of program management processes for follow-on programming, including but not limited to rolling assessments, strategy review sessions, program performance and management reviews;

    • Evaluate proposals and work with diverse groups, many of which have not previously had international funding;

    • Assist the Country Representative in monitoring the performance of the OTI implementing partners in the implementation of OTI-financed activities designed to achieve OTI strategic objectives;

    • If required, travel extensively in low security areas of focus to monitor and assess political conditions, meet with potential grantees, and develop activity ideas;

    • Mentor/train other OTI and implementing partner field staff as required;

    • Take the lead on collecting information and drafting/editing regular reporting products;

    • When required, assume higher representational responsibilities, potentially serving as Acting OTI Country Representative in his/her absence, for example;

    • Perform a wide range of administrative functions (budget preparation, financial management, records management, travel assistance, etc.) to help ensure programmatic success;

    • Assist in developing an exit strategy in coordination with the OTI Country Representative that ensures reasonable time to transition from OTI programs to follow-on USAID or other donor programs;

    • As appropriate, communicate regularly and share program information with other USAID project managers, the US Embassy, bilateral donors, UN Organizations, International Organizations, and indigenous and international NGOs to ensure visibility and synergy of USAID/OTI activities;

    • Support the Country Representative to ensure the use of OTI systems and procedures to maintain effective and efficient management of funds, programming, and monitoring and evaluation;

    • When required, report regularly to the OTI Country Representative and OTI/Washington on the status of: 1) grant development and implementation, 2) OTI contractor performance, 3) communication and coordination issues among OTI offices with other U.S. Government entities, 4) security concerns, 5) relations with local partners, including local, state and national government representatives, and 6) other pertinent information required to achieve OTI’s program objectives;

    • Perform other related duties as determined by the Country Representative or OTI Regional Team Leader to ensure successful OTI program implementation.

    MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS:

    At a minimum, the applicant must have:

    (1) A Master’s Degree with five (5) years of work experience;

    Organizational Context and Purpose

    Innovation at UNICEF is driven by an interdisciplinary team of individuals around the world tasked with identifying, prototyping, and scaling technologies and practices that strengthen UNICEF’s work for children. Innovations range from new ways to structure programmes to new products and technologies. UNICEF needs to be agile and adapt to the evolving challenges affecting all children — from disease outbreaks, to the global refugee crisis, to millions of out-of-school children. One thing that is consistent: the speed at which these problems disrupt the lives of children worldwide is only getting faster. To address these problems, UNICEF works with a network of global problem solvers who can find new ways to accelerate results that reduce inequities for children.

    Within the Office of Innovation the Futures team looks at the two-to-five-year horizon to evaluate emerging and trending technologies to see how UNICEF can work with the private sector to find shared value in this future space – for companies to do better business while improving access to essential services for children. Future investment areas include: transportation and mobility; identity; learning; mobile financial services and digital currencies; and wearables and sensor technology.

  • United States of America: Consultancy: Nutridash Consultant - Nutrition, PD - NYHQ, Requisition# 504975


    Organization: UN Children's Fund
    Country: United States of America
    Closing date: 10 Jun 2017

    If you are a committed, creative professional and are passionate about making a lasting difference for children, the world's leading children's rights organization would like to hear from you.

    For 70 years, UNICEF has been working on the ground in 190 countries and territories to promote children's survival, protection and development. The world's largest provider of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS. UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments.

    Background & Rationale

    UNICEF continues to support government and partners to improve the nutritional status of women and children globally. These programmatic efforts require a corresponding focus on strengthening information systems to closely monitor and continually improve nutrition interventions.

    Through UNICEF’s leadership and support for countrywide surveys (supported by the Division of Policy and Strategy), a growing body of information on the situation of people in these countries is gradually being built. Additionally, key data on certain programme actions to monitor the progress of UNICEF programmes and how these efforts are affecting nutritional status of women and children – needs to be captured both at local and national level. Therefore, an increasing focus by the organization and donors to strengthen programme “output” monitoring to show programme results on a more frequent basis. The need for this data is wide-ranging – for programme management and adaptation, to advocacy, to fundraising. It is clear that a strong output monitoring and reporting requires robust and quality routine information systems, primarily at country but also regional and global levels.

    Building on a number of previous initiatives and the first generation web-based platform for capturing management of severe acute malnutrition (SAM) data online, the UNICEF’s Nutrition Dashboard (“NutriDash”) was developed in 2013 and rolled out for data collection in early 2014, gathering data for 2013. The system was designed to capture programmatic data for infant and young child feeding (IYCF), micronutrient powders, salt iodization and management of SAM. This web-based system has supported UNICEF at the global regional and country levels in the identification of gaps and building global advocacy efforts, decision – making, and resource mobilization as well as support to countries, supply forecasting and programme planning, as well as reporting for the new Strategic plan, and also streamlining data requests to the field.

    In 2014/2015, given the success and lessons learned from NutriDash, small improvements were accomplished, including refinements to the existing modules, and adding a module on Vitamin A coverage and supply forecasting. The system was developed further to capture and present data at a more granular level with improved data visualization options.

    In 2016, the system was successfully migrated to the organization’s Microsoft Cloud function, developed exactly for this type of initiative and programme coverage data for 2015 and forecasting data for 2017 were collected on the migrated system. Currently efforts are underway to prepare for the data collection for 2016 coverage and 2018 forecasting data.

    Purpose

    The aim of this consultancy is to continue to support the NutriDash system, prepare for the data collection, including improving data quality validation processes in the database and analysis process related to the software. The questionnaires and quality checks will be updated to improve the overall data collection activity for the year 2016/2018. The consultant will also continue to work more closely with UNICEF information systems and monitoring and evaluation specialists and IT unit develop ways in which the NutriDash platform can be internally moved forward to ensure sustainability of the system within the organization. In the interim, small ongoing adjustments to the user-friendliness of the system also needs to be made. In addition, there is user feedback that needs to be updated in response to UNICEF user feedback gathered.

    Objectives:

    The objectives of this consultancy are to work towards a sustainable NutriDash by:

  • Developing data collection questionnaire for programme data for 2016 and make edits according to user feedback on the forecasting tool. Include data quality checks and validation in the tool to improve data quality, using feedback from previous data collection and analysis processes.
  • Updating and refining the NutriDash data input and output (reporting) functionality for 2016, including: improving data reporting for sets of countries and offline functionality
  • Developing NutriDash data input and visualization and presentation options for country level, including at sub-national level and reporting of key indicators on a more frequent basis.
  • Work closely with UNICEF IT department, NIS and M&E specialist to develop a strategy for the longer term integration of the system to UNICEF.
  • Expected results: (measurable results)

  • Continue to support the integration of NutriDash in UNICEF’s Microsoft Azure cloud platform, coding databases etc. onto Microsoft platform. Include user feedback from previous data collection exercises to improve the system and make the necessary amendments to ensure that the system is functioning optimally.
  • In close consultation with the UNICEF team develop a long-term plan for support and handover of the system to UNICEF team and ensure long term sustainability of the NutriDash system.
  • Update and refine the current NutriDash functionality for 2016- data collection process:

  • Update and make changes to the NutriDash data collection tools for capture of programme data for 2016 and supply forecast for 2018. Develop data reporting: reports for sets of countries; updated country snapshot 2-pagers etc.; refinement of reporting methods and indicators to track trends, specifically for all modules, as well as additional data tools for visualization of supply forecast data sets.
  • Develop further the data validation function in the system to improve quality of inputs; continued refinement based on increasing volume of data allowing both the technical and program teams to identify key weaknesses and issues for data capture.
  • Data input pages for countries:

  • Design a set of tools that can allow countries to develop unique data capture question sets, based on the technical functionality already in-built in the current system: this will involve developing a series of admin-user tools for question adaptation and generation that can be made available to country offices, as well as suitable training packages to support this to allow broader application.
  • Adapt existing NutriDash application to support sub-annual (variable period) data submission, either via dedicated sets of data points, or other means.

  • United States of America: Consultancy: Consultant for Methodological and Ethical Guidelines on VAC - D & A, DRP - NYHQ, Requisition# 504977


    Organization: UN Children's Fund
    Country: United States of America
    Closing date: 19 Jun 2017

    If you are a committed, creative professional and are passionate about making a lasting difference for children, the world's leading children's rights organization would like to hear from you.

    For 70 years, UNICEF has been working on the ground in 190 countries and territories to promote children's survival, protection and development. The world's largest provider of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS. UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments.

    Background & Rationale

    The protection of children from all forms of violence is a fundamental right guaranteed by the Convention on the Rights of the Child and other international human rights treaties and standards. Yet violence remains an all-too-real part of life for children around the globe – regardless of their economic and social circumstances, culture, religion or ethnicity – with both immediate and long-term consequences. The last two decades have witnessed a growing recognition of the pervasive nature and impact of violence against children as well as a proliferation of different measurement activities aimed at shedding light on this phenomenon and filling existing data gaps. Despite the numerous research activities on violence against children, there is currently no established best practice for measuring and producing statistics on this sensitive issue that has been agreed upon internationally. As a result, existing research and data on violence against children tend to be inconsistent, unreliable and of varying scope and quality, especially in low- and middle-income countries. In some cases, this has stemmed from a country’s lack of capacity and resources for data collection and, in other cases, from insufficient investment in improving measurement. Additionally, different approaches have been developed to gather data, including the use of diverse definitions, methodologies, questionnaires and indicators that has made comparisons between countries problematic. Therefore, rigorous evidence and robust data on the extent, nature and impact of violence against children is limited and this has long compromised the ability of countries and the international community to accurately document the widespread nature of violence, to support government planning and budgeting for child protection services, and to inform the development of effective laws, policies and prevention efforts worldwide.

    The need to improve the collection, analysis, dissemination and use of data on violence against children and to harmonize measurement tools in order to produce estimates that are reliable, valid, comprehensive and internationally comparable could not be more timely as the international community recently adopted a new set of goals and targets – the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Crucial issues for children have been captured across the SDGs and targets, and several areas where the MDGs were silent – including violence against children – are now recognized and addressed. In particular, goal 16 “Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels” includes targets to: “Significantly reduce all forms of violence and related death rates everywhere,” (16.1) and “End abuse, exploitation, trafficking and all forms of violence against and torture of children” (16.2). In March 2016, the UN Statistical Commission officially adopted the global indicator framework that outlines the final set of indicators for which countries will be expected to collect data in order to monitor and report on progress towards achievement of the SDGs and its targets.

    Two of the indicators selected to monitor target 16.2 are: proportion of children aged 1-17 years who experienced any physical punishment and/or psychological aggression by caregivers in the past month (indicator 16.2.1) and proportion of young women and men aged 18‑29 years who experienced sexual violence by age 18 (indicator 16.2.3). Currently, both indicators have been classified as tier II meaning that the Inter-agency and Expert Group on SDG Indicators has decided that there are existing methodologies for collecting these data but low data availability. With this in mind and as custodian agency of both indicators 16.2.1 and 16.2.3, UNICEF has decided to develop guidelines for countries on how best to collect, analyse and use data on violence against children.

    Purpose

    The Data and Analytics section is seeking a highly qualified and experienced consultant to support with key activities included in the methodological workplan on violence against children.

    Scope of Work

    Building on existing work that has been undertaken by the Child Protection Monitoring and Evaluation Reference Group (CP MERG), and other key partner agencies, the consultant will work in collaboration with the technical lead from UNICEF and a group of international experts to create a set of comprehensive methodological and ethical guidelines for the collection of data on violence against children based on existing best practice approaches, with particular attention to methods used in low-resource settings.[1] The purpose of this manual is to provide guidance for those considering collecting data on violence against children and to outline the necessary steps for designing, planning and implementing a data collection effort on violence against children. The manual will discuss conceptual and theoretical issues related to measuring violence against children and will need to outline the minimum qualifications for interviewers; steps to undertake before, during, and after data collection in order to ensure data quality; how to follow required ethical codes; and how to guarantee appropriate follow-up/referral if needed. The guidelines will also comprise an analytical framework for the analysis of findings and strategies for validation and field testing. The guidelines will also need to include a set of core indicators for reporting on VAC as well as the corresponding metadata for each outlined in a detailed appendix.

    The consultant will be responsible for developing content as well as coordinating the review of the guidelines and consolidating feedback and inputs received from other contributors. To support the preparation of these guidelines, the consultant will also be responsible for organizing and coordinating technical meetings with key experts, in consultation with the technical lead from UNICEF. The goal of the consultations will be to bring together academic experts in the respective fields of VAC, as well as those with technical expertise in measurement.

    Expected results:

  • Draft methodological and ethical guidelines for collecting data on VAC
  • Meeting reports summarizing the technical consultations
  • Duty Station

    If you are a committed, creative professional and are passionate about making a lasting difference for children, the world's leading children's rights organization would like to hear from you.

    For 70 years, UNICEF has been working on the ground in 190 countries and territories to promote children's survival, protection and development. The world's largest provider of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS. UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments.

    Background & Rationale

    Over the last several years, UNICEF and its partners have undertaken many new activities to address the need for comparable and reliable data on children with disabilities and to develop capacity to collect, analyse, and utilize disaggregated data.

    UNICEF and the Washington Group on Disability Statistics (WG) have developed two survey modules on child disability data for use in surveys and censuses. Both modules have been developed with extensive expert input and review and international testing. The Module on Child Functioning and the Module on Inclusive Education reflect current thinking around disability and can produce internationally comparable data.

    In addition to development of the modules, UNICEF and the Washington Group have engaged in efforts to develop capacity on the collection of disability data. A series of technical workshops has been developed and will have covered all UNICEF regions by the end of 2017. Additionally, a comprehensive technical document – Guidelines on the measurement of child disability – is under development. This document will provide guidance for National Statistical Offices and others considering collecting data on children with disabilities. The guidelines discuss conceptual and theoretical issues related to measuring disability in children and review methods and tools that have previously been used to collect data in this area. Considerations for designing, planning, and implementing a child disability data collection effort are presented. The guidelines have been drafted with inputs from 40 international experts. Please see the annex for a draft outline of the guidelines. Once complete, the guidelines will serve as a basis for the development of an online course on the measurement of disability.

    Purpose

    To assist the Statistics Specialist for Child Disability with completion of the Guidelines on the measurement of child disability including review and updating of existing chapters, writing and compiling missing content with inputs from experts, coordination with experts for additional review and feedback, and finalization of guidelines. Credit will be given to the consultant as a contributor.

    Expected results

    Coordinate the compilation and completion of the Guidelines on the measurement of child disability, obtaining inputs from international experts as necessary and ensuring the guidelines are comprehensive and appropriate for the intended audience

  • United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland: Oxfam Trustee


    Organization: Oxfam GB
    Country: United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
    Closing date: 30 Jun 2017

    rustee with significant fundraising experience

    Use your experience of the UK voluntary fundraising sector to help drive and support Oxfam’s strategic direction and be part of a worldwide movement of millions of people working towards one goal – an end to poverty for everyone

    The Trustee Role

    Oxfam GB is led by its Council of 12 Trustees, who are responsible for the overall governance and strategic direction of the charity. Being an Oxfam GB Trustee is an influential and valuable role and you will make an important contribution to our current work and future direction.

    Oxfam GB Trustees are often designated to lead our governance on a specific area of responsibility. On this occasion, we are seeking to recruit a Trustee who will increase the fundraising expertise on Council, support and challenge our fundraising (including strategy, performance and compliance) and who will also chair the Fundraising Committee.

    Person Specification

    • A demonstrable commitment to Oxfam’s aims, values and work.
    • Credibility in your sphere of work and personal gravitas to help lead a major charitable organisation to deliver sustainable progress towards a bold mission.
    • Strong inter-personal and relationship-buiilding abilities.

    Knowledge and Skills

    • An ability to contribute to the work of the Trustees, particularly through the application of the fundraising skills.
    • Understanding of the role of a Trustee and how Trustees can interact with Oxfam’s executive Leadership Team to best effect.
    • Proven significant experience of the UK voluntary fundraising sector with large NGOs engaging in a broad range of fundraising activities.
    • Experience of operating strategically at a board level or of leadership and management of organisations and networks.
    • Strong leadership and chairing skills, ability to motivate staff and volunteers and bring people together.

    Time Commitment – and our Commitment to You

    Your minimum commitment in an average year is likely to be about 15 days, of which 8-10 would be on fixed dates, planned well in advance. We encourage active participation and Trustees often give more time. Initial term of office is for 3 years, with the potential to be reappointed for a further 3 years.

    There are four Council meetings a year, each lasting one and a half days – usually in Oxford. In addition, there are four meetings a year of the Fundraising Committee – which the successful candidate would chair – location flexible. We also ask Trustees to visit an Oxfam programme internationally once every three years – and you’ll be invited to attend occasional events to support the charity and asked to provide support and advice when appropriate.

    This is an unpaid role but expenses are paid for attendance at Council meetings and other Trustee activities. Some employers encourage and enable trusteeship as part of wider career development and corporate social responsibility.

    We’ll give you a full induction and ongoing development, including sessions at every Council meeting about our work and the Trustee role.

    About Oxfam

    A simple, inescapable truth underlines everything we do at Oxfam. There’s enough wealth in the world to go around. It’s not unfortunate that people live in poverty. It’s unjustifiable. It’s not just their problem. It’s ours too. And with the right support, we can beat poverty and injustice. Tens of thousands of people already commit their time and talents to our fundraising, shops, campaigning, humanitarian and long-term development projects. Now we’re looking for yours.

    Oxfam GB is a registered charity in the UK and is part of Oxfam International, a foundation of 20 affiliates sharing the aim of achieving a just world without poverty. We do this through our work with partners in 94 countries and by building a global movement for change. We are at an exciting stage of an internationalisation process whereby we and other Oxfams are joining together our programmes under “One Oxfam”.
