The United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) is an operational arm of the United Nations, supporting the successful implementation of its partners' peacebuilding, humanitarian and development projects around the world.  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.  With over 9,000 personnel spread across 80 countries, UNOPS offers its partners the logistical, technical and management knowledge they need, where they need it.  By implementing around 1,000 projects for our partners at any given time, UNOPS makes significant contributions to results on the ground, often in the most challenging environments.

The People and Performance Group (PPG) is a strategic HR unit, helping UNOPS empower people, drive organizational excellence and manage change across the organization in order to help UNOPS deliver on its strategic intent.

We are a hard-working and committed team, bringing together experienced professionals with strategic HR management, including talent management and recruitment, learning and development, HR policy, organizational design and personnel well-being expertise – all of us having a passion for achieving results and building innovation into our way of doing business.

The Policy & Compliance stream focuses, among other things, in ensuring compliance with HR policy. Challenges against administrative decisions affecting the contractual rights and obligations of holders of Individual Contractor Agreements are reviewed by the HR Policy & Compliance stream by conducting fact-finding exercises, policy review, and liaising with lawyers in the Legal Group. The role will interact with senior stakeholders across the organization including HQ, Regional and country offices. The role  will work independently on case management, under the guidance of the Senior HR Manager - Policy and Compliance.

As a result of the work done in conducting the administrative review, the incumbent will develop training and capacity-building resources to be disseminated across the organization to ensure that UNOPS personnel and managers enjoy a strong Speak Up culture, and are able to use dual-communication channels to ensure proper performance management and full adherence to UNOPS values and principles. 

The role will require emotional intelligence,  judgment and decision making,  and discretion. The role requires an ability to objectively and professionally manage sensitive cases, often involving interactions with a wide range of senior stakeholders.
