UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.
Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.
And we never give up.
Background & Rationale
The Adolescent Development and Participation (ADAP) team in UNICEF is working to create a compelling content for its public-facing website. To do this, ADAP aims to draw attention to the many facets of its work to encourage public support, participation and action.
ADAP seeks to hire a highly qualified editorial consultant to produce, edit and enhance its digital content. Tasks include performing all aspects of editorial work and page production—including working with the Drupal Content Management System (CMS)—editing and copy-editing texts, while working in conjunction with the ADAP team. This consultant will be responsible for editing texts from ADAP team, as well as preparing it for use in the new Drupal platform in development.This work cannot be done internally because of the lack of staff capacity to carry out this critical function.
In this moment, the ADAP website is composed of 5 main sections (Home, About Us, Tools and Guidance, Document Library), although the consultant can suggest a better structure. The “About us” section will take the viewer to another level, “What we do”, which will be broken in 4 main themes. Each section will include text, pictures, video, reference documents and links to other relevant sites. Content is available for most of the sections, but it was not developed specifically for the purpose of a website and needs to be adjusted.
Work will consist of:
Consultant may be asked to work weekends and holidays, as required.
Expected results: (measurable results) :ADAP Website updated with new structure and content (video, photo and editorial content).
Duty Station :Consultant is expected to work from home.
Start date: 1 November 2018 End date: 16 November 2018
