Admin /Travel Assistant Job at UNV With 1000 USD Salary Monthly:
Mission and objectives
The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does — in programs, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children’s rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favoritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life — in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions — her or his rights are violated. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education and protection of a society’s most disadvantaged citizens — addressing inequity — not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfil their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries. This is why the focus on equity is so vital. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable development of nations.

The Administrative / Travel Assistant is accountable for procedural and some specialized communications, and operational and administrative support services. It is worth noting that this UNV position covers a broad range of functions, however, depending on the context, the incumbent may focus on all, some, or only one or two areas with great depth. Therefore, if this is the case, this can be made clear in teamwork plans as well as individual performance plans. However, for the incumbent to remain within the UNV level of accountability, one, or a combination of the functions highlighted as “specialized” should not encompass the majority of their time.
