Engineer (Expiration 17/06/2019)


Peace and Security Cluster

The UNOPS Peace and Security Cluster (PSC) is a principal service provider in the field of mine action with the United Nations Mine Action Service (UNMAS), UNDP, UNICEF, Governments of mine-affected countries and other mine action partners. The Head of Cluster is responsible to administer, provide support and oversight of the day-to-day management of the Project Field offices, both according to the client requirements and in line with UNOPS rules and regulations. It is headed by the Head of Cluster who has the overall authority and accountability for the performance of the Peace and Security Cluster on behalf of its clients.

One of the main objectives of the Peace and Security Cluster is to rapidly deploy project personnel to the field. To accomplish this, it has established a Pool of Experts, from which it deploys and re-deploys personnel in order to fulfil personnel vacancies.  A Pool of Experts is a roster of specialists whose technical knowledge and personal suitability has been evaluated and approved in advance, allowing them to be deployed on short notice and in short order.   Pool members can be deployed on any of UNOPS contract modalities: FTA, TA, or I-ICA (International Individual Contractor Agreement). 


There is a problem of weapons and explosive contamination in Mali, following historical and recent conflict. There is clear evidence of the presence of unexploded ordnance (UXO), improvised explosive devices (IED) and insecure stockpiles of weapons and ammunition (abandoned or neglected).

UNMAS deployed to Mali in January 2013 to conduct an emergency assessment of the situation with regard to explosive threats and in support of United Nations Security Council resolution 2085 (2012). In June 2013 the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) was established under Security Council Resolution 2100 and is currently operating under Security Council Resolution 2227 (2015). In accordance with these mandates, the United Nations Mine Action Service (UNMAS) has engaged UNOPS to implement a mine action programme in Mali. The UNMAS mine action programme is seeking to:

  • Reduce the explosive threat to MINUSMA and United Nations personnel;
  • Enhance national capacity to mitigate explosive threats;
  • Improve the protection of civilians.
