  • UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential ;
  • Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone ;
  • And we never give up.


For every child, Equality :

The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does — in programs, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children’s rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favoritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life — in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions — her or his rights are violated. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education and protection of a society’s most disadvantaged citizens — addressing inequity — not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfill their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries. This is why the focus on equity is so vital. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable development of nations.
Implementation of UNICEF’s Gender Action Plan 2018-2021 in alignment with the Strategic Plan demonstrates the organization’s commitment to the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls as its core mandate.
UNICEF’s work on gender equality is guided by the Gender Action Plan 2018-2021 (GAP) which advances gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls in key areas of UNICEF’s work. The GAP identifies eight result areas into the goals of the UNICEF Strategic Plan – equal health care and nutrition for girls and boys; equality in education for girls and boys; addressing gender-based violence against girls, boys, and women; positive gender socialization for girls and boys; quality and dignified maternal care; gender equality in health systems and workforce; gender equality in teaching and education systems, and gender responsive water, sanitation and hygiene systems. Additionally, the GAP includes indicators for measuring the success of UNICEF’s gender programming and outlines steps to strengthen UNICEF’s institutional effectiveness in promoting gender equality throughout its programmatic work.

Job organizational context :

In order to increase dedicated gender capacity and expertise in Country Offices, the GAP Steering Committee has specified that Gender Manager at Level 4 be senior enough within the office structure to carry influence in their own right, and be given an office-wide mandate to engage with sectors in meaningful programming.

How can you make a difference?

Purpose for the job :

In alignment with the GAP, the role of the Gender Manager is primarily technical and programmatic, with the normative advocacy and coordination roles serving a secondary function. The Manager provides authoritative technical guidance/operational support throughout all stages of programming to facilitate the management and delivery of results contributing to gender equality in alignment with the Gender Action Plan. S/he supports the development, implementation and monitoring of high quality gender programming across sectors in alignment with the GAP.
S/he :
  1. Supports senior programme colleagues and management of the Country Office to advance the integrated results targeted priorities in the GAP with support from the Regional Gender Adviser. S/he also plays a role in working with UNICEF sectors to mainstream gender by prioritizing key gender results within the sector(s) with a strong gender relevance ;
  2. Leads cross-sectoral collaboration and coordination on key programmatic results on gender, ensuring coherence, maximization of synergies and efficiency in utilization of resources and delivery of results ;
  3. Works with programme colleagues and management so that gender results are effectively defined, measured, and reported, and high quality assessment, research, evidence generation and evaluation of gender programming is undertaken and utilized, including through the application of the MoRES framework and effective theories of change ;
  4. Supports/leads effective review, assessment, planning, capacity building, and advocacy and knowledge management on gender ;
  5. Supports the assessment and identification of gender needs for emergency preparedness and response, and provides gender relevant guidance and technical input on emergency programming.
