The UNV programme is the UN organization that promotes volunteerism to support peace and development worldwide. Volunteerism can transform the pace and nature of development and it benefits both society at large and the individual volunteer. UNV contributes to peace and development by advocating for volunteerism globally, encouraging partners to integrate volunteerism into development programming, and mobilizing volunteers.
The External Relations and Communications Section (ERCS) builds and nurtures corporate donor relations, leads the donor resource mobilization and conducts effective communications and advocacy efforts to highlight the value of volunteerism for peace and development and the contributions of United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme and UN Volunteers. ERCS leads and manages UNV’s corporate strategic partnership relations with Member States, intergovernmental, non-governmental organizations, financial institutions, civil society, academia, media, and the private sector to promote UNV’s mandate and initiatives, raise awareness and stimulate action to advance UNV’s global agenda and resource mobilization. With a view to promoting and advancing public understanding, ERCS leads the development of advocacy, information and promotional materials, publications, websites, social media networks and other innovative means of communication.
In 2016, UNV conducted the first Retention Survey related to the Full Funding (FF) programme capturing data from former FF UN Volunteers who served between 2006 and 2015. The aim of the survey was to produce evidence-based information on the contribution of a full funded UN Volunteer assignment to the volunteer’s career prospects and employability in the field of international development cooperation and in particular in the UN system. ERCS, with the cooperation of other relevant Sections (such as the Volunteer Services Centre (VSC), Executive Office (ExO), Volunteer Solutions Section (VSS), etc.), aims at updating the Retention survey with the data related to the period 2016-2019 and provide an analysis of the historical and new retention data trends.
Within this framework, the Consultant will lead and implement all tasks related to the UN Volunteers Full Funding programme Retention Survey (hereinafter “Retention Survey”). The information will be used to inform recruitment marketing activities for mobilization of UN Volunteers, to strengthen the FF programme and to enhance the relationships with new and existing partners.
Duties and Responsibilities
The main objective of the consultancy is to collect and analyze data related to the retention rates of the UN Volunteers who have been part of the FF programme in the period 2006-2019, with a particular focus on 2015-2019. The survey will generate data and information that will allow UNV to set baselines and better understand retention-related rates and opportunities for former UN Volunteers full funded by a sponsoring entity.
The consultant will implement all activities related with the Retention Survey and the final delivered product will be the survey’s overall and donor specific reports. The consultant, under the supervision of the ERCS Partnership Development Specialist, will:
