Building dialogue among civilisations, cultures and peoples, UNESCO is realising a global vision of sustainable development founded on human rights, mutual respect and the alleviation of poverty. In this high profile position, you will make certain that we demonstrate the highest standards of accountability, transparency and integrity, and will report directly to our Director-General.
From day to day, you will guide managers and their staff on best practice, ensure compliance with agreed policies and procedures, and oversee our Declaration of Interest and Financial Disclosure Programme. At the same time, you will take the lead on whistleblower protection and anti-harassment initiatives, whilst delivering in-depth training to your colleagues and overseeing the development of your own team.
UNESCO works in education, the sciences, culture and communication and information. Recently it lost a substantial portion of funding as the newspapers reported (see for details: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-15527534 ). It is worth considering how to support the UNESCO and their goals:
"UNESCO works to create the conditions for dialogue among civilizations, cultures and peoples, based upon respect for commonly shared values. It is through this dialogue that the world can achieve global visions of sustainable development encompassing observance of human rights, mutual respect and the alleviation of poverty, all of which are at the heart of UNESCO’S mission and activities.
The broad goals and concrete objectives of the international community – as set out in the internationally agreed development goals, including the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) – underpin all UNESCO’s strategies and activities. Thus UNESCO’s unique competencies in education, the sciences, culture and communication and information contribute towards the realization of those goals.
