Job Title: Gender Mainstreaming Internship (Panama, LACRO)

Job Number: 496140
Location: Regional Services Division, LACRO
Work Type: Internship

Purpose of the UNICEF Internship Programme

The purpose of these Terms of Reference is to offer a practical learning experience for a graduate student in cross-sectoral gender mainstreaming and provide direct support to the Gender Section in the Regional Office for Latin America and the Caribbean (LACRO) on core activities towards scaling up implementation of the UNICEF Gender Action Plan 2014-2017.

Background and Justification


  • In 2013, UNICEF adopted a global Gender Action Plan (2014-2017) (GAP) that identifies five gender-related bottlenecks and the corresponding institutional response within four targeted priorities (The four targeted priorities include:
    • Gender-responsive adolescent health;
    • Girls' Secondary School Education;
    • Ending Child Marriage, and
    • Gender-based violence in Emergencies) and an overall gender mainstreaming mandate. 
  • In order to support the implementation and monitoring of the GAP, UNICEF has recently appointed dedicated Regional Gender Advisors (RGA) in almost all Regional Offices.  Within LACRO, the area of Gender has historically been represented albeit shared with other technical areas. 
  • The creation of a dedicated Regional Advisor post provides a key opportunity to strategically define and focus key gender priorities and strategies that will enhance regional and country outcomes, in line with the Strategic Plan and National gender commitments across sectors. 
  • At the country level, UNICEF country offices include gender focal points responsible for GAP implementation (in addition to several other responsibilities) and a few country offices have dedicated gender staff (with requisite expertise) as per GAP requirements due to limited human and financial resources characteristic of a middle-high income Region. 
  • This limited staff complement, both regionally and nationally, must be coordinated and channeled appropriately to advance the gender equality agenda and ensure UNICEF compliance with international, regional and national gender mandates.
Objective
  • Provide a practical learning opportunity for a graduate student on gender mainstreaming through support to LACRO Gender Section and Country Office gender focal points.
Principal Tasks and Products
The intern will be responsible for one or more of the following tasks, depending on the duration of the internship, linguistic skills, interest and current area of study/experience:

  • Develop and launch content for LACRO Gender website, and/or
  • Support Gender Section in other activities, time permitting and as needed.
  • Develop ToR and identify potential participants for a UNICEF Gender Equality Advisory Group;
  • Mapping of key communications channels for gender equality;
Place of Work
  • The intern will be required to work on-site in the LAC Regional Office (Panama City, Panama) and establish periodic communications/virtual meetings with country offices and regional colleagues.
Required Qualifications
Self-Check Table

Labour Minister Guaranteed Unemployed Nigerian Youths of Jobs

The minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige has assured unemployed youths in the country that the federal government would provide jobs for them.Labour Minister Guaranteed Unemployed Nigerian Youths of Jobs

Speaking at the weekend while giving account of his seven months in office as part of the one year anniversary of President Buhari administration, Ngige said job creation was one of the cardinal agenda of the administration.

According to him, the heavy investment on infrastructure in the 2016 Budget, indeed the N350 billion-infrastructure funds, all explain the determination of government in this direction.

He said, “Notwithstanding the prevailing economic down turn, government is doing its best in the provision of jobs, with emphasis though on blue-collar.  The main agency of job creation is the National Directorate of Employment, which is under my ministry.

“The NDE has over one hundred skills acquisition centres across Nigeria, apart from the ones owned by some federal ministries, agencies and states. Since I came in, we have embarked on the rehabilitation and re-equipping of these NDE skills centres to enhance their training capacity. We are establishing a liaison with other skill centres owned by other ministries, agencies and state governments so as synchronize and standardize their operations.

Diamond Bank Sacked Over 400 Workers

It was a bleak ‘Democracy Day’ weekend for over 400 staff of Diamond Bank Plc, as their appointments were terminated by the mid-sized lender on Friday. Sunday Telegraph’s findings revealed that although the latest layoffs by the bank had long been expected by the staff, they were still caught unaware by the development.Diamond Bank Sacked Over 400 Workers

A source at the bank told this newspaper that when most of the affected staff resumed for work last Friday, they had no inkling that it would be their last day with the lender.
The source said, “The first sign that made us notice something was going on was that many people could not log into their systems.

At first, we thought it was a network problem; but it soon became clear that staff who could not log in had been sacked.” The source further revealed that most of the people who were disengaged were mainly middle level staff such as Customer Service Managers (CSM) and some workers in the Human Capital Department.

The source said, “As as at now, we cannot ascertain the actual number of people that have been asked to go but we heard that they are between 400 and 600 and that many Customer Service Managers(CSM) are affected. There had been speculation that Branch Managers were compiling list of people to be sacked but nobody expected that they had chosen the end of May to carry out the exercise.”

Attempts by this newspaper to confirm the development from a spokesman of the bank were not successful, as he failed to call back with details several hours after she promised to. Financial analysts have predicted that the economic downturn in the country, coupled with regulatory headwinds, would lead to many banks sacking staff this year, as part of cost cutting efforts.
Indeed, respected economist and Managing Director of Financial Derivatives Company (FDC) Limited, Mr. Bismarck Rewane, predicted last January that banks may commence massive staff retrenchment in Q2 2016, due to the tough economy. Significantly, banks such as FCMB and Ecobank had already announced job cuts this year and there are indications that many lenders will soon follow suit.

The tough economy has seen many lenders posting below par performance for both their full year December end 2015 and first quarter 2016 results. In fact, Diamond Bank, which held its Annual General Meeting (AGM) last Friday, was one of several lenders that issued a profit warning that it’s profits for 2015 will be lower than the previous year.
