Overview :

United Nations Volunteers which is administered by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) invites you to submit a proposal for the following consultancy 0084947_Communications Consultant

The United Nations Millennium Campaign (UNMC) was established in 2002 by former Secretary-General Kofi Annan, to support people’s participation in achieving the Millennium Development Goals (2000-2015) and assist people in holding their governments accountable to their commitments.

As part of the United Nations Development Group (UNDG), prior to the adoption of the 2030 AGENDA, the UNMC was mandated to lead part of the global consultation on the Post 2015 agenda to make the most inclusive and transparent process. As a result, 10 million people participated in this open consultation, and told the United Nations what would make their lives better through the MY World 2015 survey, and the World We Want 2015 platform. This set a new precedent at the United Nations and with policy makers around the world - opening the door to more people-centered policy making.

As a natural continuation after the adoption of the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in September 2015, the mandate of the UNMC was extended as a special initiative of the UN Secretary-General to support peoples’ participation in SDG implementation.

The now called UN SDG Action Campaign works to build new multi-stakeholder partnerships to ensure a transparent dialogue between decision makers and their constituencies, especially the most marginalized and vulnerable populations. It will continue to leverage cutting-edge communication technologies, to show the human story behind development challenges and create deeper empathy and understanding between decision-makers and their people. Finally, it will use data, technology and innovation to empower people with the knowledge and tools to become actively involved in supporting their governments with SDG implementation and to continue to involve as many people as possible in the decision-making process.

To ensure the Campaign is fit for purpose to deliver on this mandate, a Global Campaign Center has been established in Bonn (Germany) to act as a hub to inspire people’s action on the Sustainable Development Goals, connect and amplify stakeholder efforts, open up measures of accountability, aggregate citizen-generated data, showcase impact, share best practices, and incubate and test out innovative efforts around SDG implementation.

The UN SDG Action Campaign is therefore seeking to recruit a Communications Consultant to develop and implement global integrated communications and branding strategies and provide strategic communications advice and support to the Campaign. The Communications Consultant will work together with the UN DSG Action Campaign team to increase the Campaign’s capacity to communicate effectively to all stakeholders and partners, raising public awareness and increasing engagement for the SDGs while enhancing the strategic positioning of the Campaign.
