|Duration of Initial Contract :||9 months|
The Project Communication Specialist will be engaged to support three projects in the area of Social Inclusion: Promoting Sustainable Employments 2, Preventing Domestic Violence and Support Facility for Roma Inclusion.
The main objective of the Promoting Sustainable Employments – Phase 2 project is to support the national institutions to better plan, implement and monitor active labour market measures (ALMMs). More specifically, UNDP provides support in the implementation of three employment measures of the 2013 Operational Plan on ALMMs, i.e. Self-employment; Additional employments in existing SMEs and craftsmen shops and Training in skills demanded at the labour market. In addition, the Employment programme will support creation of up to 50 short-term employments through Community works/services to enhance employability of the unemployed who face difficulties in entering the labour market.
The programme is implemented in close collaboration with the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy (MLSP), Employment Service Agency (ESA) and Agency for Promotion of Entrepreneurship (APE).
The overall objective of the project Preventing Domestic Violence through competent national institutions and accountable and transparent judicial system 2012 – 2013 is to Improve the efficiency, transparency and accountability of the judicial system when dealing with cases of domestic violence, as well as of the National Coordination Body (NCB) mandated to coordinate and monitor the implementation of national policies and measures in the area of domestic violence. Furthermore, the project aims to support the country pre-ratification processes by raising awareness of the benefits from ratification of the Council of Europe’s Convention for preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence (The Istanbul Convention) and involve the Parliament to exercise a proactive approach in addressing issues regarding domestic and gender based violence.
Support Facility for Roma Inclusion focuses on addressing the key causes of Roma social exclusion, including unemployment and financial insecurity. It will contribute to increasing technical skills of national stakeholders, responsible for monitoring and evaluation of public policy making. At local level, the project will be implemented in four municipalities developing innovative ways for increasing opportunities for Roma to become active on the labour market and achieve economic independence. To address the specific needs of Roma women, the project will increase the capacities of women’s action groups to ensure they can be as fully involved as possible in income generation programmes.
To enhance transparency of all three projects, better outreach to potential beneficiaries, raise awareness among population for preventing and combating domestic violence, the Social Inclusion practice intends to engage a Project Communication Specialist that will support all three projects in building and enhancing its knowledge management platform and improve the promotion of project results.
Under direct supervision of the UNDP Head of Unit of Social Inclusion and Strategic Initiatives and in close consultation with the UNDP Communication Officer, the Project Communication Specialist will support communication policy and knowledge management activities that will strengthen the promotion of the project interventions, raise awareness and information sharing among general population while using innovative and most suitable communication tools. In day-to-day activities the incumbent will closely collaborate with the respective project managers and specialists.
