UNOPS supports the successful implementation of its partners’ peacebuilding, humanitarian and development projects around the world. Our mission is to serve people in need by expanding the ability of the United Nations, governments and other partners to manage projects, infrastructure and procurement in a sustainable and efficient manner. Working in some of the world’s most challenging environments, our vision is to advance sustainable implementation practices, always satisfying or surpassing our partners’ expectations. A flexible structure and global reach means that we can quickly respond to our partners' needs, while offering the benefits of economies of scale. 

This position is located in the newly created Quality Assurance Group (QAG) and will form part of a small, expert due diligence team which is also under formation. Given the scale and breadth of UNOPS global operations it is critical that new and existing partners, donors and clients are aligned with the UN core values, and the due diligence team therefore has a significant role in assuring that new and existing relationships are supportive of UNOPS reputation and risk appetite. 

Whilst the wider structure of the QAG is still under development,  the primary responsibilities of the Due Diligence Specialist are expected to include partnering with colleagues across Headquarters and the Regions to deliver and assure due diligence reviews for UNOPS and supporting the implementation of UNOPS due diligence policies and procedures.
