Communication support Intern

The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme is the UN organization that contributes to peace and development through volunteerism worldwide.

Volunteerism is a powerful means of engaging people in tackling development challenges, and it can transform the pace and nature of development. Volunteerism benefits both society at large and the individual volunteer by strengthening trust, solidarity and reciprocity among citizens, and by purposefully creating opportunities for participation.

UNV contributes to peace and development by advocating for recognition of volunteers, working with partners to integrate volunteerism into development programming, and mobilizing an increasing number and diversity of volunteers, including experienced UN Volunteers, throughout the world. UNV embraces volunteerism as universal and inclusive, and recognizes volunteerism in its diversity as well as the values that sustain it: free will, commitment, engagement and solidarity.

With the headquarters based in Bonn, Germany, UNV is active in around 130 countries every year. UNV, with Field Units in 86 countries, is represented worldwide through the offices of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and reports to the UNDP Executive Board. UN Volunteers is a programme administered by UNDP.

The Un Volunteers Field Unit in Lao PDR is in the UN House where many other UN agencies are based.

The intern will contribute to the UNV FU advocacy strategy for recognition of volunteers and volunteerism and to raise the profile of UN Volunteers among stakeholders including government partners. 

The intern will assist the UN Volunteers in the Lao PDR Field Unit Office in their day-to-day activities under the 2014 work plan. The main area of work will be within information and communication, and particularly, researching, collecting, editing and distributing English-based materials, articles and publications for the office as part of the advocacy strategy. The intern will be based at the UN Volunteers Lao PDR Field Unit Office in Vientiane together with the Programme Assistant and Programme Officer, and will report to the Programme Officer. In addition, the intern will work closely with different stakeholders including other UN agencies and volunteer organisations on all the initiatives and activities relevant to information and communication in Lao and English. The intern will be immersed in a dynamic cross-cultural learning environment and have the opportunity to gain significant skills for his/her own professional and personal growth.
