Current Hiring Practices and Trends in the Development Sector
- BY David Mackenzie
UNICEF is a leading humanitarian and development agency working globally for the rights of every child. Child rights begin with safe shelter, nutrition, protection from disaster and conflict and traverse the life cycle: pre-natal care for healthy births, clean water and sanitation, health care and education. UNICEF has spent nearly 70 years working to improve the lives of children and their families. Working with and for children through adolescence and into adulthood requires a global presence whose goal is to produce results and monitor their effects. UNICEF also lobbies and partners with leaders, thinkers and policy makers to help all children realize their rights—especially the most disadvantaged.
For every child, hope.
In an effort to measurably improve UNICEF's ability to deliver better results for children, the Division of Human Resources (DHR) is embarking on a transformational process in a number of key areas, including streamlined and efficient talent acquisition, strategic business partnering, and results-focused performance and career management. DHR will partner more closely with line managers and share ownership and accountability for people management on the basis of clearly defined roles and responsibilities. HR client service will as a result be more client-facing, thus ensuring closer alignment with business needs.
