Please note that this is a consultancy assignment of a temporary nature, with an expected duration of approximately 25 working days per programme.
The OSCE has a comprehensive approach to security that encompasses politico-military, economic and environmental, human aspects. It therefore addresses a wide range of security-related concerns, including arms control, confidence and security-building measures, human rights, national minorities, democratization, policing strategies, counterterrorism and economic and environmental activities. All 57 participating States (pS) enjoy equal status, and decisions are taken by consensus on a politically, but not legally binding basis.
The OSCE Secretariat in Vienna assists the Chairmanship in its activities, and provides operational and administrative support to the field operations, and, as appropriate, to other institutions.
The Department of Human Resources (DHR) ensures that the OSCE has the human resources capacity necessary to successfully implement its mandates. DHR sets the policies and provides services in the areas of talent acquisition, administration of benefits and entitlements, payroll, performance management, talent development, and policy and employee relations across the Organization.
Talent Development, as part of the Department of Human Resources, develops and delivers learning and development activities and products to our people across the OSCE. Talent development activities include facilitation of leadership development and other programmes, campaigns on values-related culture-shaping topics, acquisition and development of e-learning, activities that enable staff to learn from each other, and innovative ways to support internal communication such as podcasts. Talent development is also responsible for the performance management process and supports team effectiveness through tailored support.
