ITU is inviting applications for the post of Programme Coordinator, Telecommunication Standardization Bureau (TSB), at ITU headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.
Lack of conformity and interoperability of ICT equipment is a major concern, especially in developing countries. Ensuring the interoperability of ICT products and services is one of the founding principles of the ITU.
The successful candidate should have an excellent knowledge of the ICT industry and, in particular, the ICT standardization landscape. Familiarity with ITU-T rules and procedures, its meeting activities and its products would be an advantage, as would previous involvement in the development of standards.
The management level (Professional level in the United Nations system) post demands strong organizational, technical and inter-personal skills. Under the direction of the Head of the Workshops and Promotions Division, the incumbent will be tasked with coordinating the TSB’s Conformity and Interoperability programme; a role demanding the design and implementation of the programme, as well as the provision of expert technical input and advice where necessary. The incumbent will also be responsible for the coordination of events, seminars and workshops relating to conformance assessment and interoperability testing, and will be required to administer the programme’s budget and reporting procedures.
An attractive package of salary (approximately USD 124,047-166,220 with dependents; USD 115,789-154,533 without dependents [Net of Tax]) plus international allowances and benefits is offered (subject to eligibility).
