UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

For every child, a champion.

With over 850 indigenous languages and one of the most ethnically diverse populations, widespread poverty, and gender inequality make it hard for many children to realize their rights. In Papua New Guinea, UNICEF’s works effectively both ‘upstream’ (with governments) and ‘downstream’ (at the grassroots level) to carry out its mission through a programme of cooperation jointly developed with the government guides our work in the country.

How can you make a difference?

Under the guidance and supervision of National Coordinator PMU and UNICEF oversight, the Consultant will work closely with PMU staff, implementing partners and other Government departments on ICT management of the MIS system and the capacity building of staff for effective management of the MIS system. S/he will provide technical trainings based on the national and international skill standards to PMU staff to build their skills and knowledge to manage the MIS system, database administration, management and analysis.

As a champion for every child, qualifications are…

  • EDUCATION - Bachelor’s Degree in Information Technology, Computer Science or information Systems
  • EXPERIENCE - Minimum of three years of experience in ICT training/capacity building and data management.

Completion of post secondary courses on IT related fields and additional professional experience in ICT and data management with additional two years of relevant work experience, may be accepted in lieu of Bachelor’s Degree in IT or computer science.

  • LANGUAGE - Fluent in English and the local language in Papua New Guinea.

For every Child, you demonstrate… our core values of Commitment, Respect, Integrity, Trust, and Accountability.
