A group of NGOs are looking for a volunteer to help develop a web platform as part of their campaign to end violence against children in the Pacific.

The agencies involved—World Vision, Save the Children, Plan, ChildFund, UNICEF, and their multiple offices from around the Pacific—have joined forces and want to share online resources and learning. They are looking for a voluntary Platform Coordinator to:

  • Joint Forces campaign children graphic PS

    The five agencies are organising a five-year campaign to end violence against children in the Pacific.

    work with the UNICEF-NZ IT expert to establish the platform
  • develop a content plan
  • coordinate content from the Joining Forces network
  • work with the working group chair (which rotates every six months) to deliver on the plan
  • help set the platform’s delivery targets.
  • help coordinate a shared online learning event.

It should take at least 30 hours a week for three weeks working with UNICEF-NZ to set up the platform. The ongoing commitment would be 4-10 hrs per week to ensure the platform remains populated and agencies actively engage with it. This will largely involve e-communication with advocacy personnel in around 16 offices across the Pacific.

The Joining Forces team would like a commitment of at least six months from a volunteer, but we see this project stretching at least two years, possibly longer. A start date is as soon as possible, with a commitment to have the platform operational by April 2019.

You can do this job from anywhere with an internet connection. If you have experience in establishing and operating an e-communication/web-based platform, good knowledge of IT functions and how to work shared platforms with a vision for what a great platform might look like, along with great relationship and planning skills, please get in touch!

If you are interested we would like to hear from you by 1 March. Please contact Claire McClintock at VSA on cmcclintock@vsa.org.nz or 029 601 0050 for more information.
