Cadre organisationnel

The Human Resources and Database Management intern supports the work of the Leadership Support Section (LSS) within the Departments of Political and Peacebuilding Affairs and Peace Operations at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. More specifically, the intern provides support to succession planning of senior mission leadership and other human resources initiatives, as well as the management of LEAD (the online pool of potential senior candidates).

LSS supports the leadership life-cycle of senior leadership in UN field missions. This includes monitoring the leadership landscape, identifying leadership requirements, conducting outreach to new potential candidates and recording senior leadership appointments for Peacekeeping Operations and Special Political Missions to improve senior-level vacancy management, and supporting the recruitment process of potential candidates for these field positions. In support of the Secretary-General’s pledge to advance gender parity, priority is given to increase outreach efforts with a view of expanding the pool of qualified women candidates for senior leadership positions. In 2018, the Section migrated its database of leadership profiles from excel to an online platform called ‘Lead’ in Salesforce to support these its core activities. Although substantial progress has been made in the area of data clean-up and uploading new profiles in this database, this continues to remain a top priority for the section especially considering new data input. The intern is expected to support this process. In parallel the intern will be asked to support other tasks within the team which, considering the nature of the Section, are related to leadership, women and leadership as well as Human Resources. Therefore, a natural interest in this field is desirable.

The envisioned start date for the internship is January 2021 but the Section maintains a rolling internship programme and is thus looking for interns available to start throughout the year. The duration of the internship is three months minimum with the potential of an extension for an additional three months. The intern will work five days per week under the supervision of a staff member of the Section. The internship is unpaid and full-time.


Under the supervision of the Programme Officer, the intern will carry out the following duties:

•Support the maintenance of the database of potential candidates for senior leadership positions, include new profiles, and support the development of the database where possible. This centralized mechanism supports all aspects of the work of the Section and is therefore vital for the Section’s mandate. Information contained in this database must be treated with the utmost level of confidentiality;

•Support other regular outreach activities, including the preparation of presentations for meetings with UN entities, Member States and regional organizations as well as conduct open search for new profiles especially of potential candidates from under-represented regions to support the Section’s work on advancing geographic diversity;

•Support the conducting of due diligence checks on potential candidates for senior leadership positions using open sources;

•Collect data on leadership trends in the field and support the preparation of internal reports;

•Prepare mission and country profiles with background documentation for upcoming vacancies and/or change of mandate and present highlights to the Section Chief or Programme Officer;

•Monitor the leadership landscape within the UN, regional organizations and Member States with a view of providing updated information to the Section;

•Attend webinars and other information sessions within DPPA-DPO on HR issues including women in Leadership. The intern is expected to share useful insights on key issues to increase learning of both the team and one-self as well as contribute to gender parity related events supported by the Section;

•Provide support to ongoing projects administered by the Section upon availability and request;

•Support knowledge tracking of new HR policies as well as review and analyse HR and other related documents which may include online research on HR topics. Occasionally the intern will be asked to support the preparation and execution of internal HR briefings which are organised to ensure the team’s knowledge on various topics;

•Support colleagues in the preparation of background documents, leadership profile slates and other information for various purposes including as meetings on and with senior leadership, training programmes and onboarding of designates;

•Other relevant tasks as required by the supervisor.

Charte des Nations Unies

Aux termes du paragraphe 3 de l’Article 101 de la Charte des Nations Unies, la considération dominante dans le recrutement du personnel doit être la nécessité d’assurer à l’Organisation les services de personnes possédant les plus hautes qualités de travail, de compétence et d’intégrité. Ne seront pas retenues les candidatures des personnes qui ont commis des violations du droit international des droits de l’homme, des violations du droit international humanitaire, des actes d’exploitation, d’atteintes ou de harcèlement sexuels, ou au sujet desquelles il existe des raisons plausibles de croire qu’elles ont été impliquées dans la commission de tels actes. L’expression « exploitation sexuelle » désigne le fait d’abuser ou de tenter d’abuser d’un état de vulnérabilité, d’un rapport de force inégal ou de rapports de confiance à des fins sexuelles, y compris mais non exclusivement en vue d’en tirer un avantage pécuniaire, social ou politique. On entend par « atteinte sexuelle » toute atteinte physique de nature sexuelle commise par la force, sous la contrainte ou à la faveur d’un rapport inégal, ou la menace d’une telle atteinte. Le harcèlement sexuel s'entend de tout comportement déplacé à connotation sexuelle raisonnablement propre ou de nature à choquer ou humilier, lorsqu'il entrave la bonne marche du service, est présenté comme une condition d'emploi ou crée au lieu de travail un climat d'intimidation, d'hostilité ou de vexation, et lorsque ce comportement est assez grave pour justifier le licenciement de son auteur. La candidature de personnes qui ont commis des infractions autres que des infractions mineures au code de la route ne sera pas retenue.

Sera dûment prise en considération l'importance d'un recrutement effectué sur une base géographique aussi large que possible. Aucune restriction ne sera imposée par l'Organisation à l'accès des hommes et des femmes, dans des conditions égales, à toutes les fonctions, dans ses organes principaux et subsidiaires. Le Secrétariat de l'Organisation des Nations Unies est un espace non-fumeurs.

La considération dominante dans l’engagement, la mutation ou la promotion du personnel est la nécessité de s’assurer les services de personnes possédant les plus hautes qualités de travail, de compétence et d’intégrité. En acceptant une offre d’engagement, les membres du personnel sont soumis(es) à l’autorité du Secrétaire général, qui peut leur assigner l’une quelconque des tâches ou l’un quelconque des postes de l’Organisation des Nations Unies, conformément à l’alinéa c) de l’article 1.2 du Statut du personnel. Dans ce contexte, tous les membres du personnel recrutés sur le plan international sont tenus de changer de fonctions périodiquement à l’intérieur d’un même lieu d’affectation ou dans un autre lieu d’affectation, dans les conditions fixées par le Secrétaire général.

Les candidats sont invités à respecter scrupuleusement toutes les instructions disponibles sur la plateforme de recrutement en ligne Inspira. Pour des informations plus détaillées, ils ou elles peuvent consulter le manuel d'instructions pour le candidat, en cliquant sur le lien hypertexte « Manuels » sur le côté supérieur droit de la page d'accueil de leur compte Inspira.

Les candidats doivent fournir des informations exhaustives et précises conformément aux instructions fournies sur la plateforme Inspira. Une fois la candidature envoyée, aucune modification, suppression ou révision, ni aucun ajout ou changement ne pourra être fait. Il sera procédé à une vérification des références des candidats faisant l'objet d'une attention particulière pour s'assurer de l'exactitude des renseignements qu’ils ont fournis dans leur candidature.
