3 New Job Vacancies Announced at UNICEF – Tanzania



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, a calling.
In 2021, UNICEF adopted a new Gender Policy and Gender Action Plan 2022-2025 (GAP) to advance gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls in key areas of UNICEF’s work. The GAP specifies how UNICEF will promote gender equality across the organization’s work in alignment with the UNICEF Strategic Plan and supports the achievement of gender equality goals as outlined in Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The GAP programmatic framework defines a twin track for the 1) integration of gender equality outcomes across all Strategic Plan Result Areas, and 2) specification of ‘targeted gender priorities’ focused on advancing adolescent girls’ leadership and wellbeing. The GAP targeted priorities for adolescent girls are adolescent health and nutrition; education and skills; preventing child marriage and violence; menstrual health and hygiene, and social protection. It also describes a series of actions to establish a more gender-transformative workplace in UNICEF, including rolling out family-friendly policies and achieving gender parity at all levels of staffing.

Building on lessons learned from previous GAPs, UNICEF Tanzania is applying a gender-transformative lens to programme and policy efforts, tackling underlying barriers to gender equality and addressing traditional gender norms. This means stepping up our programming in several areas, such as partnering with men and boys as champions for equality; centering girls’ voices and leadership in programmatic action; and incorporating efforts to tackle gender restrictive norms at policy/budget, community, and individual levels.

During the midterm review of its current country programme and in drafting its new country programme, which began in July 2022, UNICEF Tanzania adopted gender-transformative programming approaches in alignment with global UNICEF programmatic priorities and strategies. Thus, UNICEF Tanzania is looking for technical support to facilitate a gender programmatic review (GPR) across sector programmes and operations to identify operational gaps and opportunities for upscaling gender-transformative results.

The GPR will guide UNICEF Tanzania to analyze and prioritize strategic areas in which to introduce new and/or strengthen existing programming for gender-transformative results. As the GAP emphasizes quality over quantity, the expected outcome of a GPR is the adoption or strengthening of at least two or three gender transformative programming priorities that the office can address with quality programming at scale in the new country programme. The GPR will also identify gaps, opportunities and recommend entry points for integrating gender equality results across programme result areas and operations endeavors.

In addition to supporting the GPR, this position will provide technical support to develop UNICEF Tanzania’s gender action plan, an office position paper on UNICEF programming for gender-transformative results, and a concept note on UNICEF Tanzania’s programming for gender-transformative results to be used in resource mobilization efforts.
