The Position:

The Regional Communication Adviser post is placed in the Asia and the Pacific Regional Office (APRO). The adviser is a regional member of a global communication team. As a member of the APRO team, the adviser develops the regional work plan and prioritization of tasks in close collaboration with other colleagues in the APRO team and in consultation with the Division for Communication and Strategic Partnership (DCS) as needed. The advisor ensures delivery of results in line with the regional work plan.

You will work under the overall guidance and supervision of the Regional Director and in close collaboration with the other units of the Regional Office, which operates along broad thematic areas designed to stimulate and strengthen UNFPA programmes and results in the Asia and Pacific region.

How you can make a difference:

UNFPA is the lead UN agency for delivering a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person’s potential is fulfilled. UNFPA’s strategic plan (2022-2025), reaffirms the relevance of the current strategic direction of UNFPA and focuses on three transformative results: to end preventable maternal deaths; end unmet need for family planning; and end gender-based violence and harmful practices. These results capture our strategic commitments on accelerating progress towards realizing the ICPD and SDGs in the Decade of Action leading up to 2030. Our strategic plan calls upon UN Member States, organizations and individuals to “build forward better”, while addressing the negative impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on women’s and girls’ access to sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights, recover lost gains and realize our goals.

In a world where fundamental human rights are at risk, we need principled and ethical staff, who embody these international norms and standards, and who will defend them courageously and with full conviction.

UNFPA is seeking candidates that transform, inspire and deliver high impact and sustained results; we need staff who are transparent, exceptional in how they manage the resources entrusted to them and who commit to deliver excellence in programme results.

Qualifications and Experience:

Education:

Advanced university degree in the field of Communication, Journalism, Public Relations, or equivalent professional experience in the communication areas, combined with an advanced university degree in a relevant discipline required.

Knowledge and Experience:

  • A minimum of ten years professional experience with demonstrated ability to achieve powerful media coverage and drive brand reputation and recognition for international organizations
  • Proven ability to prepare for and manage reputational crises within an international context
  • Solid active network of journalist and editor contacts
  • Superior writing skills
