Deadline for application: 2 July 2018 – 23:59 Central European Time (CET/CEST)
The Conflict Prevention Centre (CPC) plays a key role in supporting and co-ordinating the OSCE’s activities in the field, in providing analysis and policy advice to the Secretary General and the Chairperson-in-Office (CiO) in relation to field-related activities and is the focal point in the Secretariat for co-ordinating and developing the OSCE’s role in the politico-military dimension.
The Policy Support Service (PSS) serves as the Organization’s primary point of contact on all matters concerning field operations; it monitors the implementation of the mandates of the individual field operations and advises the Secretary General (SG) and the Chairmanship on related policy issues. It also analyses early-warning signals regarding the situation in the field and recommends the implementation of relevant preventive or reactive action. Support provided to the SG and the Chairperson-in-Office includes background information, policy support and advice, draft decisions, draft statements and summary records. PSS facilitates the co-ordination of programmes and activities among field operations and with those of OSCE specialized units within the Secretariat and institutions and assists field operations in the Performance-Based Programme Budgeting (PBPB) process.
The PSS is composed of four regional desks covering Eastern Europe, South-Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia.
The OSCE Gender Action Plan is committed to increasing the number of female staff in all areas of the OSCE’s work. Currently female staff in the CPC, especially in management roles, are underrepresented. Female candidates are strongly encouraged to apply for this management opportunity.
