JOTW 17-2010

26 April 2010

“You can only find truth with logic if you have already found truth without it.”

– Gilbert Keith Chesterton

“There is always some kid who may be seeing me for the first or last time – I owe him my best.”

– Batting Champion (1939-1940) / Hall of Famer Joe DiMaggio

Welcome to the JOTW network.

Notice to JOTW Readers: Your JOTW was posted late today because my laptop went back to Geek Squad with an insidious “malware” attack, manifested as Win32/Nuqel.E or the Boxer Trojan that prompts you that you have a virus and presents “Security Tool • Antivirus Soft • CleanUp Antivirus” to remove it. If you try to use that tool or even if you try to decline or close the prompt you are screwed. It now appears that my operating system has been corrupted, and I have to go back to original system restore.

When told this, I managed to copy this week’s issue which I had been working on at the time so that I could add whatever else I had put together for this week in the meantime. I apologize for the delay.

Geek Squad says they can back up my files, but I do not know if that includes emails that I had saved in my folders.

If you sent a job to me today, it will be posted in next week’s issue.

This is the award-winning free Job of the Week e-mail networking newsletter for professional communicators, dedicated to the positive unanticipated consequences of networking, or as we call it, “nedworking.” JOTW is a cooperative service. That means JOTW relies on the contributions of its members, like you. We share job opportunities, news and information about the job market, as well as swapping stories about life's peculiarities. We connect you with others who are like you, and together we help each other. What a concept. So, ask yourself, “When was the last time I contributed something to share with my fellow nedworkers?”

How does it work? If you find out about a job opportunity in communications, send it to me (lundquist989@cs.com), and I'll share it with the JOTW network. It's that simple. And we share dozens of opportunities each week. Your friends can sign up by sending a blank e-mail to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

You are among 11,520 subscribers in this community of communicators.

This is newsletter number 827.

This network is all about connecting communicators and sharing opportunities. And speaking of sharing, since the JOTW newsletter was started, more than 25,000 job opportunities have been listed and shared with members of this network. 28,553 to be exact, as of this morning.

I can’t change your e-mail address for you. But you can. Send a blank e-mail from your old account to JOTW-unsubscribe@topica.com. Then send a blank e-mail from your new account to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

If you can read this newsletter, then you are on the JOTW list. If you did not receive your JOTW newsletter by email in your in box this morning, it is because you have a junk mail folder, spam filter, or capacity issues on your end.

22.) COMMUNICATIONS SPECIALIST (RCO), United Nations Development Programme, Dar es Salaam, TANZANIA

Background:

Tanzania is since 2007 piloting the UN Delivering as One reform initiative – also known as the One UN. The overall purpose of this reform is to unify and align in order to more efficiently and effectively deliver results in support of national priorities. Working as one, the UN can have a far greater impact on the development and humanitarian challenges that face the country, avoiding the fragmentation and duplication of efforts seen in the past. By combining the skills and resources of UN Agencies active across the country, the UN can complement the efforts of the Government, civil society, private sector and other development partners by providing policy advise and technical assistance to Tanzania. The vision of ‘Delivering as One’ in Tanzania is therefore about being a more effective partner for Government; focusing on the UN’s comparative advantage; being strategic about the development areas where the UN prioritizes support; and continuing to support Government on humanitarian issues.

Under the supervision of the Senior Adviser to the UN Resident Coordinator and the overall guidance of the UN Resident Coordinator, the Communications Specialist will provide communications support to the UN country team to further the Delivering as One initiative. Based in the UN Resident Coordinator’s Office, the Communications Specialist will work closely with the inter-agency Communications Group (UNCG) currently chaired by the UNIC office. On behalf of the UNCG, the incumbent will lead the communication component of the One Programme. With the joint communication strategy and work plans at the core of the joint work, the Resident Coordinator’s Office has the overall responsibility for the planning, budgeting, monitoring, implementing and reporting. The joint communication strategy and work plan cover both internal communication in the UN System in Tanzania and communication with external stakeholders.

Fuctions/Key Results Expected:

In this role, the incumbent strengthens UN capacity and learning on strategic communications by providing support to the members of the UN Communication Group and guidance to the UN Country Team to facilitate decision-making.

In the spirit of Delivering as One at the country level, the Communications Specialist of the RCO takes coordination initiative to support system-wide internal communication activities to enhance staff engagement in the reform process.
