Vacancy Announcement: Enhancing the online presence of UNICEF’s Global Annual Results Reports
Consultancy Title: Digital Consultant
Section/Division/Duty Station: Director’s Office, Programme Division, New York Headquarters
Duration: App. 60 working days between app. 9 December 2019 (start date flexible) and 29 May 2020
If you are a committed, creative professional and are passionate about making a lasting difference for children, the world’s leading children’s rights organization would like to hear from you. For 70 years, UNICEF has been working on the ground in 190 countries and territories to promote children’s survival, protection and development. The world’s largest provider of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS. UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments. UNICEF has over 12,000 staff in more than 145 countries.
UNICEF Programme Division (PD) provides global programme leadership, manages Global Programme Partnerships and coordinates global resource flows that help the organization achieve results for the most disadvantaged and excluded children everywhere, within the overall framework of the UNICEF Strategic Plan, and in response to the universal scope of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Each year, 7 Global Thematic Annual Results Reports and a supplementary report on Communication for Development (C4D), or GARRs, are produced and presented to partners at an annual event in June. They align the results achieved during the year with Agenda 2030 and set out the proposed future workplans. Each GARR is in English language, and contains text, images, graphs, cover photos, captions, etc. They vary in size with an average of 42,000 words, 112 pages, and 80 visual elements (figures, tables, photos) per report. The reports are UNICEF’s comprehensive stocktaking of results at the global, regional and country level and are important fundraising tools.
In previous years, the GARRs have also been uploaded online in plain pdf format. For the 2019 reports, there is a wish to enhance the online presence of the GARRs in order to attract increased attention online, from both traditional UNICEF resource partners and the general public.
The specific assignment for this consultancy is to enhance the online presence of the 2019 GARRs for increased uptake by partners, donors, and the public at large. This will include creating an overall landing site for the full set of reports and additional micro-sites for each report. The micro-sites will function as an executive summary of each report, including key facts, results, graphs and photos. Each site will also need to include appropriate partner visibility and highlight the value of global thematic funding for UNICEF. Finally, each site must be visually appealing, user-friendly and adhere to UNICEF guidelines for online content.
In addition, the consultant will need to, in close collaboration with each GARR team, gather and distill essential information, including the online executive summary, for each report, to be presented on the micro-sites. The consultant will be provided raw content, such as text, photos and videos and will be expected to package these assets into engaging and visually appealing content for the GARR landing site and micro sites.
