(For Individual Consultant / Contractor)


Duty Station: Baghdad, Iraq

  • Background and Justification for Consultant / Individual Contractor Contract

  • UNICEF considers the use of communication channels for behavior and social change, or what is called “communication for development,” as one of the critical areas to any development plan that aims at achieving the desired behavior in various fields. All regional and international evidence and experiences show that when communication for development is effectively integrated into programmes and plans, results are achieved more efficiently and effectively, leading to the achievement of the set objectives.

    The production of Information, Education and Communication (IEC) materials is an important component of a comprehensive C4D campaign. However, it cannot be effective alone without being combined with other communications channels. Promotion of positive behaviors and practices relies on a variety of well-designed and effective IEC materials to help ensure success. From experience, certain fundamentals pertaining to the development of IEC materials are obvious. Every brochure, poster, videotape or other piece of IEC material is the product of a decision, supported by research, to deal with a specific issue, and to be well received and persuasive among a specific audience.

    In order for the ICO Communication for Development section to meet its requirements in supporting UNICEF’s programmes for the wellbeing of the children of Iraq, and in order to effectively present the ICO raising awareness efforts on certain programmes issues, the section requires the services of a highly qualified graphic designer and animator person with a strong knowledge and skills of writing necessary messages and slogans in both English and Arabic, and can both design and produce material for use on multiple platforms.

  • Objective – Programme Group Result/Intermediate Result (PCR/IR) relevance
