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.

Violence against women is endemic in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region and SADC Member States have collectively recognized it as a critical area of concern. GBV interventions mainly focus on response and support with little attention to prevention, especially primary prevention. Most actors continue to use traditional methods of programming, yet the changing global context requires adaptation and innovation including using technology. Addressing the challenge therefore requires an effective and coordinated institutional response at regional, national and local levels as well as a change in norms and attitudes, particularly of men. UN Women SA MCO works with partners in addressing violence against women and girls.

Reporting to the Programme Specialist for EVAW and WPS, the Programme Analyst, EVAW provides programme support to the effective management of UN Women programmes in the SA MCO by contributing in the programme design, formulation, implementation and evaluation. The Programme Analyst supports the delivery of UN Women programmes by analyzing results achieved during implementation and supporting appropriate application of systems and procedures. The Programme Analyst works in close collaboration with the programme and operations team, UN Women HQ staff, Government officials, multi and bi-lateral donors and civil society ensuring successful UN Women programme implementation under portfolio.

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.

UN WOMEN is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.
