Functional responsibilities

Reporting directly to the Senior Project Manager, the Community Policing Partnership and Problem Solving for GBV specialist (Lead Workstream 3) is responsible for working in close collaboration with Nepal Police along with People in Need (PIN) and other SJP implementing partners to support the Nepal Police for playing an effective role in multi-stakeholder community safety partnerships, based on the problem-solving Scanning, Analysis, Response and Assessment (SARA) model, across targeted provinces from 2024 - 27. The objective will be to strengthen public participation, multi stakeholder partnership, police skills, and accountability, as key factors for building public trust, through institutionalizing joint community police initiatives. At the local level, using the problem-solving approach and in coordination with PIN, the project will work with Judicial Committees in building their capacity to respond to issues relating to Gender Based Violence (GBV). This will require close collaboration between Nepal Police, Judicial Committees and Communities.

S/he will have the following specific responsibilities:

  • In close coordination with the Senior Project Manager, the specialist will prepare annual work plans to implement project activities related to community police partnership (CPP) and SARA problem-solving for GBV and other crime prevention, based on the agreed scope of work.

  • Ensure synergies with other SJP partners on GBV prevention and CPP.

  • Provide Oversight of the day-to-day operations of the Community Policing Partnership and GBV workstream related to CPP and problem-solving for GBV and other crime prevention.

  • Supporting the Sr. Project Manager in ensuring high-quality reporting to, and discussions with, the Nepal Police and FCDO regarding the performance of the Community Policing Partnership and GBV workstream against milestones and management of risks.

  • Develop and lead strong relationships with key stakeholders at the federal, provincial, and local levels in order to ensure coherence in approach and buy-in to project outputs.

  • Management of relevant personnel (for example Gender Expert, and technical experts) and monitor performance in relation to the workstream’s objectives.

  • Ensure collaboration across other outputs/workstreams of the project.

  • Ensure Community Policing Partnership and GBV Expert workstream’s implementation plan(s) are in line with the project implementation plan(s) and any subsequent adjustments as guided by evidence and learning, within tolerances set by the Senior Project Manager and the Project Board

  • Ensure maintenance of the Community Policing Partnership and GBV workstream-related progress, documents, and lessons learned are recorded regularly

  • Carryout regular review of Community Policing Partnership and GBV workstream status, ensuring a skilled assessment of performance criteria (scope, cost, schedule, and quality) and deliverables

  • Support the Senior Project Manager in the formulation of stakeholder engagement and delivery of influencing efforts based on the best possible understanding of interests and incentives, as well as enabling and blocking factors

  • Establish a strong team capable of driving forward the results of the Community Policing Partnership and GBV workstream, considering the Employer’s gender parity and diversity objectives

Ultimately, it is the responsibility of the Specialist to ensure progress on this work stream with synergies with other workstreams, leading to the achievement of the Theory of Change for the SJP’s high-level results. S/he ensures that the right work is conducted to support the Senior Project Manager in achieving programme outcomes by defining (and adjusting as needed) the optimal workstream-related outputs and pushing forward the workstream 3 team’s delivery of them within the specified project tolerances of time, cost, quality, scope, risk, and benefits.

S/he is also expected to meet the organization’s performance and delivery goals, maintaining the necessary understanding of the terms, conditions, and the respective roles and responsibilities of the partners/stakeholders. S/he will ensure the People's goals of UNOPS run through all project work, including Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI).

The Workstream 3 specialist directly impacts on the achievement of workstream results by adhering to the technical needs of the targeted interventions and project management methods and strategies, reducing risks, cutting costs, and improving success rates. This consequently reinforces the visibility and image of UNOPS as an effective service provider in project services and management and strengthens its competitive position as a partner of choice in sustainable development and project services.
