    Program Finance Associate, Women’s Political Empowerment (WPE)

    • Job Type Full Time
    • Qualification BA/BSc/HND
    • Experience 6 years
    • Location Abuja
    • Job Field Finance / Accounting / Audit&nbsp

    Post Level: SB-3
    Type of Contract: Service Contract
    Additional Category: Gender Equality
    Languages Required: English
    Duration of Initial Contract: 1 year.

    Background

    Advertisement
    • UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security. In Nigeria, UN Women works to support the Government’s national development agenda, which prioritizes the empowerment of women and girls and their contribution to all areas of economic, political, and social development.
    • Women’s leadership and political participation is one of UN Women’s primary areas of work as mandated in its inception, recognizing the integral role of women in strong and stable democratic processes. Through its Leadership and Governance pillar, UN Women’s programmes are guided by a history of international commitments to women’s representation. The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women upholds women’s right to participate in public life, while the Beijing Platform for Action calls for removing barriers to equal participation. The Millennium Development Goals measure progress towards gender equality in part by the proportion of women in parliamentary seats.
    • In the area of Women’s Political Empowerment, Nigeria has ratified most of the international and regional instruments on women’s rights. However, critical challenges remain in the application and domestication of these frameworks, causing Nigerian women to be underrepresented and marginalised from political decision-making processes. Currently, women’s political representation in Nigeria is abysmally low in the legislative, executive, and judicial powers due to different gendered social norms. Young women in particular experience a double jeopardy because of gender and because young people are equally marginalized in politics. 
    • Under the funding of the Government of Canada, UN Women will implement a programme to the women’s political leadership and participation, as well as gender-sensitive reforms to ensure that affected communities, especially marginalized women and persons with disabilities are fully engaged to advocate and participate in the development of policies/legislations, in elections and other political processes affecting them. Priority areas of the programme include:
      • Legal Frameworks/Policies and Institutional Reform with a view to influence gender-responsive legislations that will create an enabling environment for women aspiring for political offices.
      • Women’s Participation and Leadership through supporting capacity-building trainings for women candidates to boost their campaign strategies, including training and mentoring young women
      • Coordination among partners and engagement with key stakeholders by building on the Working Group on Women’s Political Empowerment and engaging communities on advocacy for gender transformation as well as preventing violence among women in politics.
    • UN Women seeks to recruit a Programme Finance Associate to support the implementation of the next phase of the WPE programme in Nigeria. Reporting to the WPE Programme Manager, and in close cooperation with the Operations Manager in the Country Office, the Programme Finance Associate works with and provides support to the members of the WPE and other programme teams in the development and implementation of effective programmes consistent with UN Women rules and regulations.  She/he contributes to the research, financial management, and programme implementation including providing necessary operational, administrative, and programmatic support.
