For the past four decades, UNU has been a go-to think tank for impartial research on the pressing global problems of human survival, conflict prevention, development, and welfare. With more than 400 researchers in 13 countries, UNU’s work spans the full breadth of the 17 SDGs, generating policy-relevant knowledge to effect positive global change. UNU maintains more than 200 collaborations with UN agencies and leading universities and research institutions across the globe.
The Campus Computing Centre (C3) serves as the technology arm of the United Nations University, providing responsive, user-focused, and cost-effective information and communications technology (ICT) solutions that assist UNU and its institutes in successfully achieving their respective missions. In fulfilling this responsibility, C3 is committed to guiding the university’s strategic technology direction and overseeing the coordination and support of ICT infrastructure, resources, and services in alignment with the university’s mission and goals.
C3 invites candidates to apply for the position of ICT Helpdesk Technician. UNU is committed to gender equality. This is a specific role and females are currently underrepresented in this field. Female candidates are therefore strongly encouraged to apply.
Initial training and shadowing will be provided to successful candidates. The role will ultimately be autonomous, with the potential ICT Helpdesk Technician being expected to logically prioritise and address issues under their responsibility.
Requirements and qualifications include:
Familiarity and experience with some or all the following applications is desirable:
UNU is committed to diversity and inclusion within its workforce and encourages all candidates, irrespective of gender, nationality, religious, and ethnic backgrounds, including persons living with disabilities, to apply and become part of the organisation.
UNU has a zero-tolerance policy on conduct that is incompatible with the aims and objectives of the United Nations and UNU, including sexual exploitation and abuse, sexual harassment, abuse of authority, and discrimination.
Remuneration will be based on experience.
This is a locally recruited position and no relocation allowance applies. The successful candidate will be employed under a local contract and will not hold international civil servant status nor be a “staff member” as defined in the United Nations Staff Rules and Regulations. UNU does not sponsor a working visa for this position.
This is a full-time employment on a one (1) year Personnel Service Agreement (PSA) contract with UNU-Centre Tokyo with the possibility for renewal subject to requirements and satisfactory work performance, with the combined duration of appointments not exceeding six (6) years.
