The United Nation Secretariat maintains rosters of qualified and available candidates to fill anticipated job openings in peacekeeping operations, special political missions, and other field operations. The purpose of this job opening is to generate a list of qualified candidates for inclusion in the roster of Senior Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration officer (DDR) at P5 level.
These positions are located in United Nations Peacekeeping Operations and Special Political Missions or other field operations. The Senior DDR Officer may serve as head or deputy head of the DDR component or as head of a DDR subcomponent of UN peacekeeping or political field missions. He/she typically reports to the Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary-General/Special Representative of the Secretary-General and/or another designated official at D1 or D2 level, depending on the mission structure.
Disarmament, Demobilisation and Reintegration (DDR), or Disarmament, Demobilisation, Depatriation, Reintegration and Resettlement (DDRRR) are strategies for executing successful peacekeeping operations, and is generally the strategy employed by all UN Peacekeeping Operations following civil wars to reintegrate soldiers to a civil life.
