The Health, Safety, Social and Environmental (HSSE) management unit falls under the UNOPS Shared Services Centre (SSC) Group. It is responsible for supporting the development and implementation of HSSE good practices in UNOPS projects and operations in line with UNOPS policies, UN common system standards and international best practices. As part of its duty of care, UNOPS commits to ensuring that people do not fall sick or sustain injuries when the organisation carries out its operations. This applies to personnel at UNOPS workplaces and members of the public that may be affected by the work of UNOPS. Ensuring that people are not harmed requires the establishment of appropriate policies, standards and processes to guide operations. It also requires putting in place key controls, monitoring performance and correcting deviation from requirements. 

Therefore, the organisation requires the services of Health and Safety experts that shall be on retainer contracts to carry out short term work packages when required. 

Please note that the selected candidates who will successfully undergo the assessments will be offered a contract for 1 year (renewable) but proposed a work package only when a specific opportunity arises.
