Job Description

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.

UNDP Regional Bureau for Asia and the Pacific (RBAP), with 24 Country Offices covering work in 36 countries and decades of experience in the region, is a trusted adviser and a ‘development partner’ of choice for governments across the region in supporting the localization and achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

UNDP undergoes regular transformation to make country results more relevant and impactful. Adopting the 2022-2025 Strategic Plan, the roll-out of catalytic initiatives to incentivize innovation, supporting SDG acceleration and integration, promoting the use of digital technology, and engaging closer with the private sector have become critical aspects of UNDP’s Next Generation. RBAP proactively supports and, in many instances, is in the avant-garde of these efforts and uses Key Performance Indicators that encompass various areas of performance and zooms in, every quarter, on progress toward set targets.

The function of the Operations Manager in the Country Office has evolved from a traditional support role and in the RBAP COs this function is focused on quality assurance, oversight, and advisory services to be rendered to enhance the quality of the work performed in the COs. To achieve these results, the Regional Bureau provides support, guidance and provides oversight on the CO performance. As part of these efforts, the Bureau is populating the Operations Manager Roster and selected candidates will be placed in a Roster for 36-months and assigned to the Country Offices in the region, when vacancies arise. Rostered candidates will be selected for a specific position by the Resident Representative of the host Office in consultation with the Regional Bureau.

Position Purpose

Under the overall guidance of the Resident Representative (RR) and direct supervision of the Deputy Resident Representative (DRR), the Operations Manager acts as an advisor to Senior Management on all aspects of CO management and operations. This includes strategic management of financial and human resources, efficient procurement and logistical services, ICT, and common services consistent with UNDP rules and regulations.
