The UN Somalia Risk Management Unit (RMU) has been established to support all United Nations entities working in Somalia, as well as partners and donors. This unit works within the Office of the Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator, which ensures independence and impartiality.  The RMU is unique within the United Nations system and has made considerable progress in advancing the risk management agenda for the UN in Somalia. In July 2012 and June 2013 the Monitoring Group Report on Somalia and Eritrea noted the work of the RMU as a best practice and many other countries are learning from its experience and replicating RMU functions, tools and expertise such as UN Afghanistan, UN Syria and other countries.

To respond to the needs on risk analysis,  the RMU is looking for a highly motivated individual risk analyst expert who can positively contribute to the work of the team, and support the humanitarian and development operations of the United Nations in Somalia.

The Risk Analyst is responsible for assisting the Head of Risk Management Unit in implementing the risk management regime, through the provision of risk analysis and support.
