However, a current staff member who holds an appointment at the G-6 or G-7 level may also apply to temporary positions in the Professional category up to and including the P-3 level, subject to meeting all eligibility and other requirements for the position. A staff member holding a temporary appointment shall be regarded as an external candidate when applying for other positions, and may apply for other temporary positions at any level, subject to section 5.7 below and staff rule 4.16 (b) (ii). Therefore, a staff member holding a temporary appointment in the General Service or related categories may only apply to positions within those categories. For full information on eligibility requirements, please refer to section 5 of ST/AI/2010/4Rev.1 on Temporary Appointments. In its resolution 66/234, the General Assembly further “stressed that the Secretary-General should not recur to the practice of temporarily filling posts in the Professional and higher categories with General Service staff members who have not passed the General Service to Professional category examination other than on an exceptional basis, and requests the Secretary-General to ensure that temporary occupation of such posts by the General Service staff shall not exceed a period of one year, effective 1 January 2013…” Consequently, eligible candidates in the General Service or related categories for temporary job openings in the Professional category that have not passed the competitive examination may be selected only on an exceptional basis endorsed by the Office of Human Resources Management where no other suitable candidate could be identified. • Upon separation from service, including, but not limited to, expiration or termination of, or resignation from, a fixed-term, continuing or permanent appointment, a former staff member will be ineligible for re-employment on the basis of a temporary appointment for a period of 31 days following the separation. In the case of separation from service on retirement, a former staff member will be ineligible for re-employment for a period of three months following the separation. This equally applies, mutatis mutandis, with respect to a former or current staff member who has held or holds an appointment in another entity applying the United Nations Staff Regulations and Rules and who applies for a temporary position with the Secretariat. • Retirees above the mandatory age of separation who wish to be considered for the current temporary job opening must indicate the reason for their last separation as "retirement." Such retirees shall not be employed by the Organization, unless (a) the operational requirements of the Organization cannot be met by staff members who are qualified and available to perform the required functions; and (b) the proposed employment would not adversely affect the career development or redeployment opportunities of other staff members and represents both a cost-effective and operationally sound solution to meet the needs of the service. • Subject to the funding source of the position, this temporary job opening may be limited to candidates based at the duty station. • While this temporary assignment may provide the successful applicant with an opportunity to gain new work experience, the selection for this position is for a limited period and has no bearing on the future incumbency of the post.

A staff member holding a temporary appointment who is recruited in the Professional and above categories on a temporary appointment, and placed on a position authorized for one year or longer may not apply for or be reappointed to his/her current position within six months of the end of his/her current service. This provision does not apply to staff members holding temporary appointments and placed on positions authorized for one year or more in duty stations authorized for peacekeeping operations or special political missions. • The expression “Internal candidates”, shall mean staff members who have been recruited after a competitive examination under staff rule 4.16 or after the advice of a central review body under staff rule 4.15. • Please note that candidates will be required to meet the requirements of Article 101, paragraph 3, of the Charter as well as the requirements of the position. The United Nations is committed to the highest standards of efficiency, competence and integrity for all its human resources, including but not limited to respect for international human rights and humanitarian law.

For more details on the administration of temporary appointments please refer to ST/AI/2010/4/Rev.1. • The Staff Regulations, Staff Rules and administrative issuances governing staff appointments can be viewed at: http://www.un.org/hr_handbook/English • Staff members of the United Nations common system organizations who will reach the mandatory age of separation or retirement within the duration of the current temporary need period are not eligible to apply. • Staff members are not eligible to apply for the current temporary job opening if they are unable to serve the specified duration of temporary need before reaching the mandatory age of separation. Submitting an application or selection for the current temporary job opening does not delay or increase the mandatory age of separation. IMPORTANT: Candidates found suitable and not selected for the announced duty station, may be selected for deployment to other duty stations. The selection will be for similar functions with similar requirements at the same level. United Nations Considerations According to article 101, paragraph 3, of the Charter of the United Nations, the paramount consideration in the employment of the staff is the necessity of securing the highest standards of efficiency, competence, and integrity. Candidates will not be considered for employment with the United Nations if they have committed violations of international human rights law, violations of international humanitarian law, sexual exploitation, sexual abuse, or sexual harassment, or if there are reasonable grounds to believe that they have been involved in the commission of any of these acts. The term “sexual exploitation” means any actual or attempted abuse of a position of vulnerability, differential power, or trust, for sexual purposes, including, but not limited to, profiting monetarily, socially or politically from the sexual exploitation of another. The term “sexual abuse” means the actual or threatened physical intrusion of a sexual nature, whether by force or under unequal or coercive conditions. The term “sexual harassment” means any unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature that might reasonably be expected or be perceived to cause offence or humiliation, when such conduct interferes with work, is made a condition of employment or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment, and when the gravity of the conduct warrants the termination of the perpetrator’s working relationship. Candidates who have committed crimes other than minor traffic offences may not be considered for employment. Due regard will be paid to the importance of recruiting the staff on as wide a geographical basis as possible. The United Nations places no restrictions on the eligibility of men and women to participate in any capacity and under conditions of equality in its principal and subsidiary organs. The United Nations Secretariat is a non-smoking environment.

Job Description:

  • The goal of the PPRD is to: Strengthen social cohesion Rehabilitate essential infrastructure; Revitalize the local economy. In order to address the needs of people in NW/SW in an integrated and coordinated way, the PPRD’s priority interventions ensure that sectoral and sub-sectoral needs are considered in relation to each other. UNDP was designed as the Government of Cameroon's strategic partner for the implementation of the PPRD. UNDP will focus on the first leg of the programme related to recovery interventions. Reconstruction and Development will be undertaken in a subsequent phase. The recovery, reconstruction and development activities are guided by national policy frameworks and priorities set out in the NDP to ensure coherence and consistency of policy across the Cameroonian territory. UNDP has an extensive experience of supporting recovery in various crisis contexts in the world and also recognizes that its interpretation of the concept has been different in different contexts. For UNDP, recovery aims to establish sustainable economic growth and human development while addressing the factors that could lead to a recurrence of conflict. Recovery is not about restoring pre-conflict economic or institutional arrangements. It is about transformation. Recovery is important is to reverse some of the effects of the conflict, to generate incomes and to improve social services for the long-suffering populations. In the short to medium term some hardship can be alleviated by aid, but ultimately local actors must generate their own resources to meet the bulk of their population’s needs. This requires economic recovery and growth. UNDP Recovery Programme in the Northwest and Southwest will prioritize human, social and local economic aspects of recovery (2 to 3 years). Reconstruction and Development will be undertaken in subsequent phases (within a 10-year time frame). UNDP is already engaged in recovery in the Far North, and through the small grant mechanisms in the Northwest and Southwest. UNDP Recovery Programme is based on a set of principles of engagement and will be implemented according to its mandate, rules, and regulations and based on impartiality. In addition, UNDP will follow several Principles of Engagement, namely: ensure that all stakeholders of the programme are vetted and that resources are not allocated to former and potential Human Rights violators; A people-centered and vulnerability-based approach to select the most vulnerable communities, and step-by-step approach initially targeting accessible areas before moving to more sensitive areas; Ensure local ownership, triangulation of information and deconflicting of activities; Coordinate to reduce duplications or gaps, identify pitfalls and build on synergies; Mitigate political instrumentalization. In promoting Recovery in the Northwest and Southwest, UNDP will work closely with and support the capacity reinforcement of civil society organisations with which UNDP has a long-standing partnership since the beginning of its Early Recovery activities in 2016, and faith-based organisations. UNDP will contribute to boost the local economy through the selection of local contractors. UNDP will also partner with UN Agencies. The conflict in the Northwest and Southwest has caused large-scale damage, spurred a humanitarian crisis and exacerbated existing social tensions. The populations urgently need to receive humanitarian assistance and to recover from both the conflict and neglect. The needs and vulnerabilities of the affected populations must be addressed beyond immediate humanitarian action through time-critical actions that can alleviate the crisis and mitigate its impact, helping people to get back on their feet through recovery assistance and reducing the dependency on humanitarian aid. UNDP Recovery Programme’s proposed inception phase will cover three programmatic outputs: 1. Strengthen social cohesion UNDP focus will be placed on distributing standard packages of materials and tools to the populations to enable them to repair or rebuild their homes; capacity building workshops; establishment of internal mediators and peace networks; and psychosocial support. 2. Rehabilitate social services UNDP will work with local organisations and local contractors and focus on mobilising materials and equipment for community-based social services such as primary health care or education. 3. Strengthen local economy UNDP will focus on providing technical and managerial support; farming equipment; markets repairs; income-generating activities; vocational training; micro-grants as start-up capital for beneficiaries’ joint-ventures. Under the guidance and direct supervision of UNDP Resident Representative in Cameroon, the Peacebuilding and Recovery Advisor acts as a senior advisor on all aspects of peacebuilding and recovery in NWSW regions. The Peacebuilding and Recovery Advisor develops the strategies and approaches allowing for the implementation of UNDP crisis programmatic interventions in Cameroon and works in close collaboration with Government officials, other UN Agencies, INGOs, UNDP HQ, technical advisors and experts, multilateral and bilateral donors, recovery influencers and civil society to strategically position UNDP in UN peacebuilding and recovery approaches, and to implement UNDP’s Recovery program.

Job Description:

  • Cameroon is a lower-middle-income country with a population of 26 million (World Population Review, 2019). Located along the Atlantic Ocean, it shares its borders with Chad, the Central African Republic (CAR), Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, and Nigeria. Two of its border regions with Nigeria – the North West (NW) and the South West (SW) - are Anglophone, while the rest of the country is Francophone. Cameroon has enjoyed decades of stability in a fragile region. Today it is battling Boko Haram in the North, dealing with an influx of refugees from the CAR in the East—and, most devastatingly, faced with the Anglophone crisis in the West. English speakers, who make up about a fifth of Cameroon’s population, have complained for years about discrimination in education, law and economic opportunities held by the Francophone majority (AFP, 2019). The socio-political crisis began in October 2016 in the Anglophone NW and SW regions. First lawyers went on strike against the erosion of the English-style common-law system. Teachers then joined the protests, pointing out, among other things, the designation of French-only speakers in classrooms (The Economist, 2019). The social unrest mutated into armed conflict at the end of 2017. In the last two years, the crisis has forcibly displaced a large part of the population either internally or to Nigeria. Numerous cases of human rights abuses including sexual violence and discrimination against women have been widely reported. Seven non-state armed groups (NSAGs) are currently in positions of strength in most rural areas. The security forces reacted, and since mid-2018 have inflicted casualties on the separatists. However, they have not regained full control over rural areas nor prevented repeated separatist attacks in major towns of the NW and SW (International Crisis Group, 2019). As a result of the crisis, several public services have been severely damaged - if not completely destroyed - depriving thousands of people the right to access basic social services, including health, education and other basic administrative services necessary for their well-being. Inadequate public services and lack of economic opportunities, as well as the shutdown of many schools, have made youth from the two affected regions subject to recruitment into NSAGs. The Prime Minister launched the Presidential Plan for Reconstruction and Development (PPRD) in 2020, as a component of the National Development Plan (NDP) that was articulated to reduce the effects of the crisis on populations of the North-West and South-West regions. At the request of the Government of Cameroon, the PPRD will address the immediate needs of the affected populations of the NW and SW regions. The goal of the PPRD is to: Strengthen social cohesion Rehabilitate essential infrastructure; Revitalize the local economy. In order to address the needs of people in NW/SW in an integrated and coordinated way, the PPRD’s priority interventions ensure that sectoral and sub-sectoral needs are considered in relation to each other. UNDP was designed as the Government of Cameroon's strategic partner for the implementation of the PPRD. UNDP will focus on the first leg of the programme related to recovery interventions. Reconstruction and Development will be undertaken in a subsequent phase. The recovery, reconstruction and development activities are guided by national policy frameworks and priorities set out in the NDP to ensure coherence and consistency of policy across the Cameroonian territory. UNDP has an extensive experience of supporting recovery in various crisis contexts in the world and also recognizes that its interpretation of the concept has been different in different contexts. For UNDP, recovery aims to establish sustainable economic growth and human development while addressing the factors that could lead to a recurrence of conflict. Recovery is not about restoring pre-conflict economic or institutional arrangements. It is about transformation. Recovery is important is to reverse some of the effects of the conflict, to generate incomes and to improve social services for the long-suffering populations. In the short to medium term some hardship can be alleviated by aid, but ultimately local actors must generate their own resources to meet the bulk of their population’s needs. This requires economic recovery and growth. UNDP Recovery Programme in the Northwest and Southwest will prioritize human, social and local economic aspects of recovery (2 to 3 years). Reconstruction and Development will be undertaken in subsequent phases (within a 10-year time frame). UNDP is already engaged in recovery in the Far North, and through the small grant mechanisms in the Northwest and Southwest. UNDP Recovery Programme is based on a set of principles of engagement and will be implemented according to its mandate, rules, and regulations and based on impartiality. In addition, UNDP will follow several Principles of Engagement, namely: ensure that all stakeholders of the programme are vetted and that resources are not allocated to former and potential Human Rights violators; A people-centered and vulnerability-based approach to select the most vulnerable communities, and step-by-step approach initially targeting accessible areas before moving to more sensitive areas; Ensure local ownership, triangulation of information and deconflicting of activities; Coordinate to reduce duplications or gaps, identify pitfalls and build on synergies; Mitigate political instrumentalization. In promoting Recovery in the Northwest and Southwest, UNDP will work closely with and support the capacity reinforcement of civil society organisations with which UNDP has a long-standing partnership since the beginning of its Early Recovery activities in 2016, and faith-based organisations. UNDP will contribute to boost the local economy through the selection of local contractors. UNDP will also partner with UN Agencies. The conflict in the Northwest and Southwest has caused large-scale damage, spurred a humanitarian crisis and exacerbated existing social tensions. The populations urgently need to receive humanitarian assistance and to recover from both the conflict and neglect. The needs and vulnerabilities of the affected populations must be addressed beyond immediate humanitarian action through time-critical actions that can alleviate the crisis and mitigate its impact, helping people to get back on their feet through recovery assistance and reducing the dependency on humanitarian aid. UNDP Recovery Programme’s proposed inception phase will cover three programmatic outputs: 1. Strengthen social cohesion UNDP focus will be placed on distributing standard packages of materials and tools to the populations to enable them to repair or rebuild their homes; capacity building workshops; establishment of internal mediators and peace networks; and psychosocial support. 2. Rehabilitate social services UNDP will work with local organisations and local contractors and focus on mobilising materials and equipment for community-based social services such as primary health care or education. 3. Strengthen local economy UNDP will focus on providing technical and managerial support; farming equipment; markets repairs; income-generating activities; vocational training; micro-grants as start-up capital for beneficiaries’ joint-ventures.

The Peacebuilding and Recovery Advisor develops the strategies and approaches allowing for the implementation of UNDP crisis programmatic interventions in Cameroon and works in close collaboration with Government officials, other UN Agencies, INGOs, UNDP HQ, technical advisors and experts, multilateral and bilateral donors, recovery influencers and civil society to strategically position UNDP in UN peacebuilding and recovery approaches, and to implement UNDP’s Recovery program.
