This is a job opportunity that is open to both graduates and non-graduates offered by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). This Job opportunity  is very essential for all fresh and non-fresh graduates to apply for it.

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) – In September 2014 UNICEF began implementing a joint programme with UN Women on Women, Peace and Security (WPS) funded by the European Union (EU). The programme will support the Nigerian Government (Federal level), three Northern Nigerian States namely Adamawa, Gombe and Plateau and selected Local Government Areas (LGAs) to strengthen women’s leadership, advance gender equality and improve protection for women and children in conflict settings.

Job Title: TA –  Child Protection Officer, NOB
Job Number: 509591
Location: Maiduguri, Borno
Work Type: Temporary Appointment
Job Duration: 6 Months

Background and Rationale

  • The United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF) Nigeria is seeking the interest of a qualified Child Protection Officer in the area of SGBV and Child Protection, with a focus on case management (GBV & CP), PSS support, capacity building and reintegration of girls and women who have been affected by conflict related sexual violence.
  • UNICEF is supporting state and non-state partners to build capacity on GBV as well as develop and implement a reintegration programme, to ensure safe supported return for these highly vulnerable girls and women, as well as promote a protective environment in their communities to mitigate against further sexual violence.
  • In the course of 2014 and early 2015, Jama’atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda’awati wal-Jihad (JAS), more commonly as Boko Haram intensified its attacks on the civilian population in Nigeria, with tactics developing from hit-and-run attacks targeting Government officials, security forces, police stations, detention centers, religious figures and schools, to take-and-hold attacks in which JAS managed to establish and maintain control over large swaths of territory. While in late 2015 and 2016 the Nigerian Armed Forces took back most JAS controlled areas, the fighting caused additional mass displacement, especially in Borno State.
  • Children have been acutely impacted by the conflict. In particular, sexual violence has been a characteristic of the conflict. It is estimated that 7,000 women and girls have suffered conflict related sexual violence, including following abduction by JAS and forced marriage to their fighters. Many girls and women have become pregnant and given birth as a result of the sexual violence. The girls and women, and their children are facing stigma and, in some cases violence, as they return to their communities following escape or rescue by the Nigerian Armed Forces.
