Organisational Unit: UNU Centre, Tokyo, Japan – Campus Computing Centre (C3)
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 Helpdesk Support Specialist. This is a part-time employment contract. The 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 Helpdesk Support Specialist being expected to logically prioritize and address issues under their responsibility.
Remuneration 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.
