UNICEF Global


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 Vision! 

To deliver on the ambitious People and Culture goals of the UNICEF Strategic Plan, UNICEF launched the OneHR Strategy 2022-2025 and the OneHR function designed an innovative Global HR Delivery Model. The people-centered OneHR Strategy and its operating Delivery Model, aim to enhance the UNICEF people experience, enabling UNICEF colleagues to bring their ‘unique self’ to work and strive to deliver for the children we serve around the world.  While tools and strategies are implemented to enhance the UNICEF people experience, it is critical to identify the relevant monitoring framework and key data points to people’s experience can be monitored regularly and timely, and correction actions can be taken quickly and iteratively to ensure we achieve the results we aim for. Monitoring and enhancement of the candidate experience is a large part of people’s experience and a priority for 2024-2025.

Thus, UNICEF is seeking a consultant to support the design and implementation of the framework for monitoring candidate experience in UNICEF by building on existing organizational processes and establishing innovative new mechanisms.

How can you make a difference? 

In 2024, a new Staff Selection Policy that aims to reduce the timelines of the recruitment process while ensuring transparency and fairness in the review of applications and candidates was launched by UNICEF. In line with the OneHR strategy, the Human Capital Intelligence and Technology section of the Division of Human Resources has been entrusted to design and implement a monitoring framework for the UNICEF candidate experience, building on existing organizational processes and establishing new innovative mechanisms in collaboration with key stakeholders. UNICEF is seeking a consultant to support the design and implementation process with key deliverables related to (1) the monitoring of the recruitment timelines; (2) the qualitative analysis of recruitment processes and (3) the establishment of feedback loops for candidates along and after recruitment processes.
