Level: NB4

Start Date: 1 August 2021

Background: 
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the UN’s global development network, advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in 170 countries and territories, working with governments and people on their own solutions to global and national development challenges to help empower lives and build resilient nations.
 
The Community Mobilizer will be assigned to the Jerusalem office of UNDP’s Programme of Assistance to the Palestinian People (PAPP). PAPP was established through a resolution adopted by the UN General Assembly on 20 December 1978, calling upon UNDP “to improve the economic and social conditions of the Palestinian people”. In partnership with Palestinian institutions, civil society, communities and donors, UNDP’s goal is to empower the Palestinian People to establish a viable State that is able to realize the right to development for its people and support their socio-economic resilience.
 
In this regard, UNDP / PAPP is seeking a candidate to fill the position of Community Mobilizer in West Bank and East Jerusalem for the Investment Programme for Resilience (IPR). This Project is a comprehensive, inclusive and integrated response to the needs of the most vulnerable/marginalized communities in Palestine. It is designed based on a sound analysis of the risks and problems posed by the COVID-19 crisis and its immediate implications. It is also based on the analysis of previously existing multisectoral development challenges. The Programme is characterized by two main components: outcome 1, aimed at strengthening the health system and outcome 2 aimed at reinforcing resilience through community infrastructure. More specifically, outcome 1 focuses on addressing short term-immediate needs by enhancing the preparedness and response capacity of the health system through (1) provision of medical equipment and supplies, (2) deployment of health personnel and workers in the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza, and (3) procurement and placement of medical waste treatment systems in health centres. On the other hand, cutcome 2 of IPR seeks to address community needs through investments in community infrastructure and basic services within a strategic approach in reducing disparities, strengthening social cohesion, and enhancing community engagement and ownership (particularly women, youth, and people with disabilities), and also contribute to creating short-term employment opportunities through construction/rehabilitation works and long-term sustainable jobs for the operation and management of the new services provided. Under outcome 2, the Programme aims to achieve the following results: 1. Social and community infrastructure rehabilitated and/or expanded; 2. Capacity of entities improved to manage the infrastructure and to provide sustainable services and employment to the community; 3. Social cohesion activities planned and implemented by the community.
 
Under the guidance of the Programme Analyst and the direct supervision of the Project Manager, the Community Mobilizer will be a key member of the Project Implementation Unit, complementing the technical work of the engineer/s in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, with capacity building support to the partners and community engagement activities with local representatives. The candidate will be undertaking the functions of the position while working in the different governorates/communities/ neighborhoods in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
