Provide support for central-level human resources capacity development, assisting the development of an institutional framework for the human resource and training activities within public procuring entities, as well as an enhanced central human resource management and implementation capacity. The post will be for 1 year, renewable.
The appropriateness and scope of experience and qualifications will be a determining factor, rather than duration of time spent at work. However, the ideal candidate will possess, at a minimum, a first degree in a relevant discipline. It is considered unlikely anyone will be able to undertake this role without experience of working in HRD in the public sector and, specifically with senior management in the public sector, i.e. at Echelon I and II levels.
The ideal candidate will have experience in HRD with a technical training background, preferably with an understanding of public procurement processes, and will demonstrate a good understanding of HRD and how the various components of HRD are managed, integrated, and developed in a manner that professionalizes the sector.
The emphasis of the job is the design and development of HRD processes and structured competence-based learning at a macro level and not upon the actual implementation and delivery of the HRD processes and learning which would be the responsibility of public procuring entities and not LKPP, although, in the short-term, LKPP anticipate playing a role in implementation” given it is not that relevant with the subject and the job’s nature.
The work will be challenging and rewarding. As well as a good technical understanding and analytical thinking, the ideal candidate will need to demonstrate the ability to work both independently and in a team; fact-find and collate information; be persuasive when presenting a case; have good written and presentation skills; communicate clearly and decisively; be confident & resilient and work to tight schedules.
