As a result of the decision on the closure of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine (SMM), please be informed that all SMM open recruitment processes are hereby cancelled. To see all other vacancies, please click here.
Please note that this is a consultancy assignment of a temporary nature, with an expected duration of approximately 15 working days.
The OSCE has a comprehensive approach to security that encompasses politico-military, economic and environmental, and human aspects. It therefore addresses a wide range of security-related concerns, including arms control, confidence- and security-building measures, human rights, combating human trafficking, national minorities, democratization, policing strategies, counter-terrorism 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 Strategic Police Matters Unit (SPMU) at the Secretariat responds to requests from participating States for specific expert advice on policing and police-related activities. Good policing has played a vital role in preventing conflict (particularly secondary conflicts), in preserving social stability during political crises, as well as in supporting the rehabilitation period following the end of conflict. Equally apparent is that without effective law enforcement and genuine respect for the rule of law and the institutions responsible for upholding it, there can be little likelihood of social, political or economic stability.
As part of its activities in the fight against cybercrime, TNTD/SPMU is implementing the OSCE Extra-Budgetary project no. 1102092 “Capacity Building on Combating Cybercrime in Central Asia”. The objective of this project is to build up training capacities of five OSCE pS in Central Asia, namely Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan, to sustainably educate and train their police officers and prosecutors on combating cybercrime. As part of the project’s preparatory phase, TNTD/SPMU is in the process of setting up a team of experts to support the development and organization of training courses scheduled within the first phase of this project: two regional training-of-trainers courses and four thematic training courses on combating cybercrime.
To this end, TNTD/SPMU is hiring multiple Consultants to assist the implementation of the two regional training-of-trainers courses. This assignment requires reviewing and updating existing training materials, developing a complete training module in English for online delivery, as well as delivering the training courses in June and November 2021.
