This Vacancy Announcement is being published by the Water &
Energy Cluster on behalf of the SEforALL Initiative
In September 2011, UN
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon launched the Sustainable
Energy for All (SEforALL) initiative as a global partnership platform that
was to promote and support new collaborative approaches for governments,
business and civil society to work together in making sustainable energy for
all a reality by 2030. Set up as a multi-stakeholder platform, SEforALL aims to
contribute towards three interlinked objectives: (i) ensure universal access to
modern energy services; (ii) double the global rate of improvement in energy
efficiency; and (iii) double the share of renewable energy in the global energy
mix. In working towards these goals, SEforALL engages with leaders across the
world, empowering them to broker the partnerships and to unlock the finance
necessary for a radical energy transformation in their countries, sectors or
regions. SEforALL works by marshaling the evidence about what works and what
doesn’t; benchmarking the progress made across countries, and pointing to it;
amplifying the voices of the energy poor and others who need to be engaged for
a global movement to emerge; telling the stories of success to offer motivation
where inertia is settling; and connecting leaders with each other and the ideas
and innovation they need to move forward.
SEforALL operates out of Vienna and Washington DC, incorporated as an
International Organization under Austrian law.
Context of Assignment: The SEforALL Communications team is a lean, agile, fast-paced global team
using storytelling to help deliver the organization’s goal of accelerating action that help secure clean, affordable energy
for all well – and do it well before 2030. Under the overall guidance of the
SEforALL Communications Director, the Social Media Associate’s role will be to develop
and execute SEforALL’s social media strategies and campaigns across all
relevant social media channels and manage the day-to-day tactical execution of
all social media activity – and help us change the narrative on SDG #7.
Content and methodology of
supervision: The Social Media Associate will
be supervised through individual meetings with the Communications Director,
weekly team meetings, and through periodic performance appraisals.
