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.  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.

The Norwegian Embassy in Nepal has requested UNOPS to assist the Government of Nepal in the reconstruction of earthquake-affected educational facilities. UNOPS proposes to construct 24 new school classroom blocks and toilet blocks in existing damaged schools in the areas of Nepal which have experienced significant destruction and received limited reconstruction help so far. The project is to be implemented from December 2018 to December 2021.

The project includes school selection based on needs and close collaboration with the Government of Nepal’s National Reconstruction Agency and Ministry of Education. The schools selected will be rebuilt to international standards, both from a structural and functional point of view. UNOPS will commit to quality learning spaces which offer all the Government of Nepal-defined Minimum Enabling Conditions (gender inclusion, accessibility, water and sanitation facilities, electricity provision, furniture).

Under the overall guidance and supervision of the Project Manager, reporting to the Country Director, the incumbent performs and may supervise personnel in delivering, technical and administrative support services, covering specialized and non-specialized processes and transactions for discrete work areas in construction management, ensuring efficient, client oriented and effective service delivery. The Construction Manager promotes a quality and results-oriented approach, ensuring utilization of office resources in a most cost-effective manner.
