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.
The protracted political, development and humanitarian context in South Sudan calls for further integration between the different components of the international aid architecture to ensure joined-up approaches to common challenges across the humanitarian, development and peace Nexus. Such integration will help to create synergies and complementarities in planning, programming and analysis not just between the Agencies Funds and Programmes (AFPs) but also with the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS).
The need for joined-up approaches is particularly crucial for analysis and risk management to ensure a shared contextual analysis and approach to risks. A significant amount of information and analysis already exists within UNMISS and AFPs however there is no single-entry point for risk management across the Nexus. The recent Peer-to-Peer review of the humanitarian operation in South Sudan proposed the establishment of a Risk Management Unit within the office of the DSRSG/RC/HC to allow for a common narrative for joint analysis, programming, implementation, and M&E. The 8 June 2022 Protection Roundtable reconfirmed this recommendation, concluding that that no joint system for reporting and managing red flags for protection of civilian exists within the current architecture.
Within delegated authority, and reporting to the D1 Head of the Integrated Office, and under the wider leadership of the DSRSG/RC/HC, the Senior Risk management Officer (P5) will be responsible for comprehensive and complementary risk analysis and assessment with a focus on peacebuilding, humanitarian and development sectors. The Senior Risk Management Officer will lead setting up of the Risk Management Unit (RMU) within the Integrated Office and will coordinate and lead contextual and risk analysis utilizing data from multiple sources including the AFPs, in a complementary manner to UNMISS. The Senior Risk Management Officer will establish a robust risk management platform for planning collective action across the peace, humanitarian and development Nexus. The Senior Risk Management Officer will work closely with the context analysts of the AFPs and serve as the coordinating unit for all risk management of the AFPs and INGOs/NGOs to ensure that all risks affecting the delivery of development and humanitarian action are mitigated including decisions around strategic partnerships and financing. The unit will ensure collaboration with UNMISS Strategic Planning Unit (SPU), Field Offices, and other UNMISS Units such as JOC and JMAC for a coordinated approach to risk analysis and transition planning. The incumbent will supervise four international personnel and support capacity building on risk management including for external partners.
