Description

Driver, Kampala, Uganda
Organization: ILO - International Labour Organization
Country: Uganda
City: Kampala, Uganda
Office: ILO - International Labour Organization

Introduction

The position will be located in the ILO Country Office in Uganda. The main objectives of the International Labour Organization (ILO) in Africa are to promote rights at work, encourage decent employment opportunities, enhance social protection and strengthen dialogue on work-related issues.

The project is centrally managed by the ILO Regional Office in Africa. The ROAF has overall political and management responsibilities for the promotion of ILO principles, policies and decent work priorities in the region as well as provides strategic guidance and support to all country offices and Decent Work Technical Support Teams (DWTs) in Africa.

The main objectives of the ILO in Africa are to promote rights at work, encourage decent employment opportunities, enhance social protection and strengthen dialogue on work-related issues.

Africa's population is rising the fastest. The pressure to provide decent work opportunities for new labour market entrants will be particularly acute in Africa. The ILO in the region has given priority to promoting employment in the rural and informal economies, and underscored the need for action to tackle youth unemployment. Building the capacity of its constituents to contribute more effectively to the achievement of equitable and inclusive growth is a major urgency.

The Driver will work on the 'Accelerating action for the elimination of child labour in Africa' project.

The outcome of the project will go beyond the targeted countries, thus benefiting the whole region through the promotion of partnerships and knowledge sharing.
