All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.

    BackgroundIn Pakistan, the lack of capital for women-owned businesses and inadequate access to financial products remain key barriers to women's economic empowerment.

    In this regard, enhancing women's access to finance - including through the provision of innovative financial instruments and pursuing financial inclusion targets – is a key focus area for UN Women PCO.

    In the past, UN Women has worked towards building capacities of parliamentarians and key stakeholders on gender-responsive budgeting practices, and increasing knowledge of financing gaps through rapid assessments and analyses.

    Keeping in view the lack of innovative financial products in Pakistan - including those for women - caused in part due to a nascent capital market structure and regulatory framework, there has been a significant push towards sustainable finance in the country in the past two years.

    This momentum largely owes to the issuance of Sukuk Bonds and Green Bonds by the Government of Pakistan, formulation of Gender Bond Guidelines by the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan, and the introduction of a Banking on Equality Policy by the State Bank of Pakistan.

    The financial ecosystem in Pakistan is now well-suited for advancing women's financial inclusion, including women-centric product development and the issuance of the country's first-ever gender bond.

    Duties and ResponsibilitiesUN Women Pakistan is looking to hire a Consultant – Innovative Gender Financing, reporting to the Senior Planning, Monitoring and Reporting Officer.

    The Consultant will work in close collaboration with the Women's Economic Empowerment and Operations teams at PCO, partners and stakeholders from the financial ecosystem of the country, and donors to support successful implementation of planned initiatives.

    Working under the overall guidance of the Country Representative UN Women Pakistan, and under direct supervision of the Senior Planning, Monitoring and Reporting Officer, the Consultant is expected to conduct the following:
