I think you will agree with me, our current web site design served us well in the past but needs a face lift. Time to become cool again!

Just kidding – if there’s one thing I’m serious about, it’s the importance of online communication for UNDP – making sure we communicate what we do, and that our website helps us achieve our goals (Currently gathering inspiration from: 10 Keys to Effective Non-Profit Organization Websites).

We recently advertised two posts and an internship – all connected to efforts already underway to make sure that our web site and online social media platforms support UNDP goals and that people have an informative, useful and engaging experience when they interact with us online.

We’re in the midst of figuring out how to apply our new design templates (which are very nice by the way) and making sure that when a visitor surfs through our web site or our social media platforms, they don’t get lost or confused along the way.

1. For this, we’re looking for a consultant to help us brand, perfect and integrate all our online platforms. (Apply by 28 October.)

We have a lot of great content related to regionally-specific development issues, and want to make sure it reaches the people and organizations interested in these issues. We also want to work with some of our partners more closely online, from linking to each other’s content or creating content together. We’d love to have guest bloggers write for our blog.

2. For this, we’re looking for a consultant to help us expand our online partnerships and digital engagement. (Apply by 30 October.)

I’m in the process of streamlining our web site content, getting rid of old pages, minimizing the number of pages we have on our web site, and making sure the content we do have is user-friendly and optimized for the web. This is proving to be a lot of work.

3. For this, we’re looking for a web site intern / grammar nerd to help with jargon-slaying and managing multimedia content. (Apply by 25 October.)

If you think you’re a good candidate for any of these positions, then we’re looking for you! Please apply!
