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.
