The Position:

The National Programme Analyst - Gender/GBV analyses and assesses relevant political, social and economic trends, guiding and facilitating the delivery of UNFPA’s programme/project related to gender equality and women’s empowerment in the Philippines, especially prevention of and response to gender-based violence. You will closely collaborate with other units of the UNFPA Country Office (CO) National Strategy Execution (NSE), Strategy Development and Branding (SDB), Mindanao Strategy Execution (MSE) and Operations Support (OS) Teams.

How you can make a difference:

UNFPA is the United Nations sexual and reproductive health agency. Our mission is to deliver a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe, and every young person's potential is fulfilled.  In 2019 UNFPA marks its 50th anniversary.  Since the International Conference on Population and Development in 1994, UNFPA has been assisting countries with implementing the ICPD Programme of Action to put sexual and reproductive health and rights, gender equality and population dynamism as the foundation of sustainable development.  UNFPA globally is promoting the achievement of three transformational goals by 2030 - ending preventable maternal deaths, ending unmet need for family planning, and ending gender-based violence and child marriage.

In the Philippines, UNFPA has started its new five-year 8th Country Programme 2019-2023, with gender equality and women’s empowerment as a cross-cutting priority.  The 8CP is tightly aligned with the mid- and long-term development goals of the Philippines, as detailed in the Philippine Development Plan 2017-2022 and Ambisyon Natin 2040, as well as the global Agenda 2030 including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 

In a world where fundamental human rights are at risk, we need principled and ethical staff, who embody these international norms and standards, and who will defend them courageously and with full conviction.  UNFPA is seeking candidates that transform, inspire and deliver high impact and sustained results; we need staff who are transparent, exceptional in how they manage the resources entrusted to them and who commit to deliver excellence in programme results.
