Diversity, Equity and Inclusion are core principles at UNDP: we value diversity as an expression of the multiplicity of nations and cultures where we operate, we foster inclusion as a way of ensuring all personnel are empowered to contribute to our mission, and we ensure equity and fairness in all our actions.

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.

UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.

The Public Finance Management Reforms Strategy (PFM-RS) as required for the implementation of the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan (R-ARCSS), 2018, provides a better opportunity for Revitalized Government of National Unity (RTGoNU) to build the capacity of public institutions and the civil servants skillfully, structurally, systematically, symbiotically, and synthetically.

The Project has been envisioned to induce behavioural change in conduct of public affairs, learning from relevant comparative experiences and adjusting attitude of civil servants to match the standards of “New Deal Compact” for accelerating economic growth in South Sudan.
