The United Nations Ombudsman and Mediation Services Office (UNOMS) has some intriguing short term jobs and consulting work for experienced Ombuds and other ADR professionals:

Short Term Ombuds Work
UNOMS is seeking to fill its roster of pre-screened on-call ombudsmen and mediators for possible consultancies to provide conflict resolution services in the UN Secretariat. On-call ombudsmen and mediators complement UNOMS’ existing capacity on an as needed basis during surge periods, for short-term assignments and/or for interventions that require special expertise. Applications will be reviewed by a panel on an on-going basis. Candidates will be notified after receipt of the complete application package as to whether they have been deemed eligible and their name will be placed on the roster for potential further consideration for assignments. Placement on the roster does not guarantee recruitment.
Training on Conflict Competence
UNOMS is seeking to hire a consultant to deliver a one day training to UNOMS staff on conflict competence. The training will form part of the overall professional development plan for UNOMS’ staff and is being conducted in conjunction with an office retreat in April 2015. Application deadline is March 6, 2015.
Risk Assessment and Response
UNOMS is seeking to hire a consultant to undertake an assessment to review confidentiality procedures on-site and to identify risk areas. The work will be performed off site and on.  The application deadline is March 20, 2015.
