UNOPS supports partners to build a better future by providing services that increase the efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability of peace building, humanitarian and development projects.  Mandated as a central resource of the United Nations, UNOPS provides sustainable project management, procurement and infrastructure services to a wide range of governments, donors and United Nations organizations.

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. In line with its health and safety improvement initiative, UNOPS has introduced a zero tolerance approach to poor health and safety performance, and is recruiting a health and safety specialist to support the implementation of the appropriate health and safety system and requirements. 

The incumbent will work with the Pristina Head of Office in his role as the acting ECR Infrastructure Specialist, and with overall guidance from the ECR Regional Director and Office, to support multi-country and country offices under ECR in developing the appropriate competences, policies, mechanisms, systems and tools to effectively manage and monitor health and safety controls across their offices, project sites and operations, including UNOPS’ hosted entities. The duties of the health and safety specialist will include extensive travel to these countries and specific project sites as necessary to review and advise on improvements required, particularly with focus on large-scale infrastructure projects and operations.
