UNICEF Viet Nam is looking for National Junior Consultants from October 2018 to September 2019 to support content creation and management of UNICEF Viet Nam social media platform. If you have excellent communication skills, including writing (in English and Vietnamese) and intercultural communication skills as well as are passionate about making a lasting difference for children, the world’s leading children’s rights organization would like to hear from you.
Digital media, especially social platforms, are changing the ways people interact, giving rise to new and diverse audiences and empowering civil society in ways that have profound implications for communication and advocacy. Nearly half of the world’s population now has Internet access – a figure predicted to increase, even in places with less connectivity and fewer amenities – enabling new forms of communication.
VCO Country Programme 2017-2021 highlighted the importance of the public advocacy and communication for child rights. The programme aims to increase public awareness and action to address vulnerabilities and inequities affecting children.
In Viet Nam, 40 percent of population is online and 72 percent of youth population have access to internet. This makes internet a good platform to reach various stakeholders to drive change for children. Strategic use of digital media, especially social media, will deepen UNICEF’s dialogue with stakeholders about child rights and equity as well as broaden their engagement in issues related to children. Greater understanding of children’s challenges and better involvement in children’s issues results in more impact: The richer the conversation and better engagement, the greater the chance for audience actions in support of UNICEF’s public advocacy.
Digital content and engagement will reinforce UNICEF’s leadership as a credible voice for and with children. While UNICEF Viet Nam website mainly targets donors, policy makers and general public, its social media platform focus on young people. In order to reach the young people, the social media platform need to be strengthen to attract attention and encourage the engagement of the young people.
The aim is to create interactive and youth-friendly content for UNICEF Viet Nam social media channel that attract attention and participation of young people on issues related to children.
To support the Communication team in content creation, we are looking at recruiting a team of three junior national consultants/interns/volunteers to work at a flexible time arrangement (at least three half-a-days per week).
