Call for applications: Consultant - Internal Review of Human Resources & Development Procedures and Policies

Deadline for Submission: 27 May 2019

Start Date: 1 June 2019

End Date: July 2019

Climate Action Network (CAN) is a worldwide network of over 1300 Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) in more than 120 countries, working to promote government and individual action to limit human-induced climate change to ecologically sustainable levels.

CAN members work to achieve this goal through information exchange and the coordinated development of NGO strategy on international, regional, and national climate issues. 

The CAN International Secretariat (CAN International) currently encompasses about 25 people and supports, coordinates and facilitates the activities of the CAN network. The team works mostly virtually and from a number of locations spread across the globe.

Human Resources & Development (HR & D) procedures and policies review

Since 2018, CAN International has been going through a period of organizational changes to accommodate the needs of the International Secretariat to adapt in a rapidly evolving external context. The area of human resources management with relevant procedures, policies and practices in a culturally diverse environment is a foundation that determines the success and sustainability of these changes. 

We are therefore looking for a consultant with extensive HR expertise to conduct a holistic review of the organizational environment, of existing HR & D procedures and policies; to assess gaps and identify general and specific areas for improvement, and to develop recommendations and strengthened policies and systems for the organization to be able to optimally fulfill the work and feel motivated and empowered to do so, while supporting team wellbeing and organizational development. 

Furthermore, it is expected that the consultant provides guidance into a concomitant organizational restructuring process.

Recommendations should include specific steps to be taken to ensure improved efficiency and agility of the organization and contribute to fostering an organizational culture in line with the vision and values of the organization.
