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 and Justification
The office has recently gone through a 2016-2021 Mid-Term Review (MTR) process and submitted the outcome to the Regional and Budget Review (PBR) Committee. The PBR Committee approved the outcome of the MTR process and as a result, 12 new positions were established. In addition, 10 other cases were carried forward or fallen vacant resulting in a total of 22 (8 IP 10 NO and 4 GS) positions to be recruited against within the next 4 months.
UNICEF Tanzania has developed a tight recruitment plan to expedite the recruitment process for the new posts so that implementation of the Country Programme was not delayed. 8 recruitment cases are at various stages of recruitment. In addition, other posts are also becoming vacant due to staff movements and changes. This means there are still over 14 posts that need to be filled in addition to the 8 that are ongoing.
With all these recruitments, the country office will be onboarding over 10 new staff during the first quarter of 2019. In addition to performing other HR functions, the section is overstretched and requires additional support.
As this is the 1st Quarter of 2019, the Human Resources Section will be expected to support the recruitment of about 21 individual Consultant s worth US $ 317,000. The office accordingly has a need for support from a professional Human Resources Practitioner to provide additional capacity and support to the Human Resources function in the office, with a strong focus on recruitment and on-boarding
