Taking a ‘leave no one behind’ approach to our diversity efforts means increasing representation of underserved populations. People who identify as belonging to marginalized or excluded populations are strongly encouraged to apply. Learn more about working at UNDP including our values and inspiring stories.

South Sudan is going through a crisis following an armed conflict that erupted in December 2013 and flared in July 2016.

The conflict has resulted in focusing external assistance to South Sudan on humanitarian relief, with little attention to ongoing early recovery, stabilization and development work. In this context, The Country Office’s success in its delivery of UNDP programmes is dependent on ensuring an adequate security framework is in place.

In addition to call for a stronger UNDP presence, the Government counterparts have requested UNDP to provide technical advisory support to the states, UNDP Management has agreed an incremental approach to strengthening UNDP field presence and work towards establishing fully fledged field offices.

The Host Government has primary responsibility for the security and protection of personnel employed by United Nations Security Management System organizations, their eligible family members, and property.

Specifically, the security team ensures the integration and mainstreaming of security risk management into Country Office operations, including incorporation of security considerations into the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of all country office projects and programmes.
