Assistant/consultant to the African Union Commission

GIZ (Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH) is looking for a:
ASC Rostering Assistant/consultant to the African Union Commission (African nationals only)
1.   Background
Since 2008, the African Union Commission (AUC) sought to commence with the development of a continental civilian stand-by roster for the African Standby Force (ASF) designed to ensure that a sufficiently large pool of trained and experienced civilian personnel is available for deployment to Peace Support Operations (PSOs). Recognizing that civilian expertise is required for a range of PSOs undertaken by the AUC, the Peace and Security Department (PSD) decided to establish the African Union Peace and Security Civilian Stand-by Roster in late 2010.
Since then, the AUC has been developing a roster management system that will serve the needs of all civilian deployments in Peace and Security Missions, including the areas of Mediation and Post-Conflict Reconstruction and Development (PCRD) and taking into account the RECs/ RMs.
By the end of 2014, the development of a new human resource policy and the database management system for managing rostering processes were completed. In addition, also selection criteria and standards for recruitment of civilian personnel for the ASF on AUC and RECs/RM level and for capacity development had been developed. The roster was named the African Standby Capacity (ASC) and the official launch took place at the AUC in June 2015. After one and a half years of processing the first applications, the AUC plans to launch its first call for roster applications for multiple job families beginning of 2017.
