We are excited to share an opening from our colleagues at UNDP for a consultant to work on mapping the contributions of the private sector throughout the migration cycle in Tunisia. This mapping will support efforts to build a commitment in the private sector to support the socio-economic integration of migrants in Tunisia.
The private sector in Tunisia is diverse, comprising many actors with interests in the migration cycle (before departure, transit, destination and re/integration). It can contribute to the socio-economic inclusion of mobile people by providing jobs and services for migrants and by investing in migrant economic initiatives and entrepreneurship. Private sector actors are engaged in the migration process both as part of their core profit-seeking activities and their activities under their corporate social responsibility.
In this context, the consultant would begin with a mapping of private sector actors, including foreign companies working in Tunisia, who work or are planning to work with returning migrants or with Tunisians looking for opportunities to develop professional skills abroad. The consultant would then develop strategies for approaching and engaging the private sector regarding involvement in the migration cycle, focusing in particular on the skills mobility partnership between Tunisia and Switzerland, migrant returnees and those hoping to train abroad, and opportunities to promote migrant entrepreneurship.
The ideal candidate will have good knowledge of the Tunisia migration and private sector context, UNDP's strategy in Tunisia, and excellent oral, written and analytical skills. The consultant should have a Masters degree in a relevant field and excellent knowledge of French and Arabic. Read the vacancy notice here and the Terms of Reference here, and apply by March 22nd.
