UNICEF Cambodia’s Communication Section is responsible for the organisation’s public advocacy and communication, risk communication and community engagement in the country. To fulfill this mission, a wide range of communication assets and materials are produced on a regular basis, including documents for advocacy, accountability, awareness-raising, information sharing, community engagement and fundraising purposes.

The Communication Section works closely with programme teams and partners to communicate with the media, the public, and donors to advocate for a wide range of issues, aiming to improve the lives of Cambodian children and youth.

Compelling written materials are therefore an integral part of UNICEF’s brand, and as such, its publications and other documents must be clearly understood and resonate with their intended audience and be professionally crafted following global communication guidelines.

Under the general guidance of the Chief of Communication, this role is responsible for developing narratives, human interest stories, key messages, copy for photo essays, advocacy briefs, newsletters and blogs, media briefs and press releases, video/radio scripts and social media content in English
