The UNDP Country Office in Rwanda has recently started an effort to reinforce the role of the Communication Unit within the organization and the implementation of their mandate.
This year there have been several new processes set in place by the Communications Unit: Redesign of the website, opening Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and other Social Media, knowledge sharing tools have been introduced, and internal communications systems have been put in place, amongst others.
UNDP Rwanda Country Office as well as its implementing partners collected over the years a great number of pictures, images and audio-video materials, as part of the work done in Rwanda. These materials, however, have not been fully utilized, mainly due to the lack of an organized system to compile, file, and retrieve them. An organized archive will provide for the Web Upgrade Project the required audio visual materials needed to complement the contents to be included.
Duties and Responsibilities
Under the overall guidance and direct supervision of the Head of Communications Unit, and working jointly with the whole team, the interns are responsible for undertaking the following tasks:
Maintenance and update of the UNDP Rwanda site (www.undp.rw.org):
Ensuring smooth functioning and linking content to social media platforms Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and Youtube.
Support to the implementation of the UNDP communications strategy in Rwanda, specifically with regard to media monitoring.
Provision of inputs and researched information for the elaboration and implementation of an online and social media strategy to support and amplify UNDP Rwanda’s work, in close coordination with the communication team, by utilizing existing tools such as TeamWorks.
Maintain the Audio-Visual Archive:
Required Skills and Experience
Bachelor or equivalent preferably in Communications or ICT and currently pursuing a master’s programme (if a candidate is graduating before the internship period begins, he is no longer eligible).
