Within UNOPS, the Infrastructure and Project Management Group (IPMG)’s objectives are to serve the organization’s personnel and partners by broadening their infrastructure and project management capabilities, while disseminating best-practices in both these areas. Through this work, the Group helps facilitate the successful delivery of programmes and projects around the world.
The UNOPS Peace and Security Centre (PSC) is a principal service provider in the field of mine action with the United Nations Mine Action Service (UNMAS), UNDP, UNICEF, Governments of mine-affected countries and other mine action partners. The Centre is responsible to administer, provide support and oversight of the day-to-day management of field Programmes, according to both the client’s requirements and in line with UNOPS rules and regulations. PSC is a thematically-based business unit, with a centralized hub in New York and currently 18 field-based programmes.
The Project Management Advisor will have a dual reporting line: a primary reporting line to PSC’s Project Management and Legal Advisor and a secondary reporting line to IPMG’s Head of Implementation Support. As such, the individual will act as a critical link amongst IPMG, PSC’s New York hub, and PSC’s field offices worldwide. It will thus be critical for the incumbent to work in a collaborative manner with colleagues at different levels and different locations in the organization.
