Duties and Responsibilities
Recruitment and hiring of staff are the most important human resource management activities. Each recruitment process and decision represents a major investment of organizational resources, constitutes a long-term asset and is a direct reflection on the organization’s reputation. Each appointment affects the performance of offices and defines OCHA’s credibility with stakeholders. Competency based interviewing is one of the ways OCHA assesses staff to fill vacancies across OCHA. This procedure is designed to ensure a competitive selection process for our rotational vacancies by establishing uniform selection procedures across the organization. All recruitment and selection processes in OCHA are defined by some principles such as competition, fairness, professional rigor and objectivity, transparency and accountability. Since the implementation of OCHA’s People Strategy in April 2018, the Executive Office of OCHA has been handling a high volume of recruitments and conducting a series of interviews, and HR representatives require extra support with the report writing while overseeing the interview process.
