UNRWA, the largest United Nations operation in the Middle East with over 30,000 staff working across five areas of operation, is looking for highly committed senior female professionals wishing to make a change. UNRWA is committed to achieving and sustaining gender parity at all levels of staffing. In line with the United Nations secretary-general’s system-wide strategy on gender parity and UNRWA’s own gender equality strategy 2016-2021, it has put in place an HR action plan to achieve gender parity at all levels of staffing by 2021. One of the specific measures UNRWA has adopted to achieve parity is the establishment of senior area female talent pools from grade 16 to grade 20 levels, to ensure a pipeline of qualified female professionals for both programmatic and support areas from middle to senior management. The mission of Information Management and Technology Department (IMTD) is to provide world-class information management and technology services to the agency and its beneficiaries through secure, innovative, impactful, efficient and cost-effective solutions.

About UNRWA:

Following the 1948 Arab-Palestinei conflict, UNRWA was established by United Nations General Assembly Resolution 302 (IV) of 8 December 1949 to carry out direct relief and works programs for Palestine refugees. The Agency began operations on 1 May 1950. In the absence of a solution to the Palestine refugee problem, the General Assembly has repeatedly renewed UNRWA's mandate, most recently extending it until 30 June 2020. The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) is funded almost entirely by voluntary contributions from the UN Member States. UNRWA also receives some funding from the Regular Budget of the United Nations, which is used mostly for international staffing costs. The Agency’s services encompass education, health care, relief, and social services, camp infrastructure and improvement, microfinance and emergency assistance, including in times of armed conflict.
