Organisation: UNICEF ESARO
Job Title: ￼Consultancy: Protection of sexual exploitation and abuse

The objective of the consultancy is to support the ESARO and targeted UNICEF Country Offices of Burundi, Somalia and South Sudan to review and strengthen existing systems and interventions and to develop and roll out guidance for enhanced protection of sexual exploitation and abuse systems and interventions.
The consultant will provide technical assistance to Burundi, South Sudan and Somalia COs and in close consultation and partnership with relevant parties at country level, will assess existing SEA prevention and response systems, services, and referral mechanisms, and develop a guidance document to ensure that the practice in country is aligned with UNICEF policies on SEA. The guidance should identify the critical actions required to prevent and respond to SEA, and propose recommendations for improving the system, referral mechanism, and programming strategies particularly tailored to the contexts of Burundi, Somalia and South Sudan. The consultant will also roll out an initial training/orientation on SEA on based on the guidance document, and develop an action plan articulating how the recommendations will be implemented.
The provision of technical assistance to humanitarian contexts and significant changes in existing CO in emergencies is a key deliverable for which the Child Protection Section is accountable. Given the rapid deterioration of the situation in South Sudan and the continuing conflict in Somalia and Burundi, the reported cases of sexual exploitation and abuse, and the limitations in the current capacity to prevent and respond, support to the identified Country Offices for conceptualization and roll out of enhanced systems and interventions is critically needed.
