|UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.
The UN Women Regional Office for the Arab States (ROAS) exercises UN Women functions at a regional level and in support of UN Women’s engagement in 17 countries across the region. Drawing on UN Women’s triple mandate, ROAS promotes the realization of gender equality and the empowerment of women through active engagement across the UN Women Global Strategic Plan (2022-2025). The ROAS Strategic Note 2022-2025 includes a comprehensive and innovative monitoring and reporting framework to measure and report on transformational results at the regional level, including in those countries where UN Women is a regionally based entity. ROAS engages with regional and global inter-governmental processes to ensure gender equality is an integral part of norms and standards and promotes women’s full participation and leadership in policy processes and gender-responsive governance systems, including gender statistics. ROAS aims to advance supportive regulatory frameworks for promoting decent work and enterprise development, including for women migrant workers; and promotes private sector engagement and the Women’s Empowerment Principles. Focusing on prevention and response, ROAS works to eliminate violence against women. ROAS’s programming takes a gender-responsive approach to the prevention of violent extremism and supports the integration of gender considerations into humanitarian action and to advance the women, peace, and security agenda.
Monitoring and Reporting play a central role in assisting ROAS’s in the implementation of the Strategic Note/Biannual Work Plan, internal reporting processes, and donor reporting. The work supports the ROAS senior management’s oversight of Country Office periodic and annual reporting (via the Results Monitoring System – RMS) and supports strengthened programming results through support to the development of results frameworks and monitoring plans and tools to monitor and report on progress and supports monitoring and reporting capacity of UN Women personnel in the RO and Country Offices in the Arab States region.

How to Apply
In July 2010, the United Nations General Assembly created UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality, and the Empowerment of Women. The creation of UN Women came about as part of the UN reform agenda, bringing together resources and mandates for greater impact. It merges and builds on the important work of four previously distinct parts of the UN system (DAW, OSAGI, INSTRAW, and UNIFEM), which focused exclusively on gender equality and women’s empowerment.
At UN Women, we are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment of mutual respect. UN Women recruits, employs, trains, compensates, and promotes regardless of race, religion, color, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, ability, national origin, or any other basis covered by appropriate law. All employment is decided on the basis of qualifications, competence, integrity, and organizational need.
If you need any reasonable accommodation to support your participation in the recruitment and selection process, please include this information in your application.
UN Women has a zero-tolerance policy on conduct that is incompatible with the aims and objectives of the United Nations and UN Women, including sexual exploitation and abuse, sexual harassment, abuse of authority, and discrimination. All selected candidates will be expected to adhere to UN Women’s policies and procedures and the standards of conduct expected of UN Women personnel and will therefore undergo rigorous reference and background checks. (Background checks will include the verification of academic credential(s) and employment history. Selected candidates may be required to provide additional information to conduct a background check).
