Chief of Communication and PR - KfW Multi-Donor Trust Fund


Project Title: Partnership Fund for Assistance to Syrian Refugees and Host Communities in Jordan, Iraq (North), Lebanon and Turkey
Location of the position: Amman (Jordan), or Istanbul (Turkey)
Position Title: Chief of Communication and Public Relations
Project Summary
This project is intended to establish a very large multi-donor trust fund to improve the general prospects of Syrian refugees currently residing in Jordan, Iraq (North), Lebanon and Turkey as well as their host communities by means of creating employment, stabilizing income and improving livelihoods. The primary focus will be on the creation of (better) income opportunities and enabling vocational (re-)training, with the latter also catering to post conflict and reconstruction needs.
As the target group comprises refugees and host communities, the approach will aim at improving the socio-economic perspectives of refugees and cushioning the burden of immigration for host communities. The support for host communities will follow two principal goals:
  • To ease the additional strain put on host communities with respect to public, specifically communal, service provision,
  • To mitigate already existing potentials for tension between local communities and refugees stemming from increasing economic competition in the (informal) labor market, the housing market, the education sector, etc. This can only be achieved if the local population benefits not only indirectly (e.g. through improvement or rehabilitation of overburdened public infrastructure) but also directly from the projects/programs financed through the Fund.
While the focus will be on income generation and qualification, the Fund will also serve to support other relevant interventions which cater to the principal goals of stabilization and resilience, e.g. the provision of housing, municipal infrastructure and - where required - social protection schemes such as cash for work and cash transfer schemes.
Key Responsibilities:
Generating public understanding of the activities and results of the fund in terms of providing economic opportunities will be a central aspect of implementation, given the high levels of attention that the Syria crisis is generating.
  • Design and implement the Fund's communications strategy, and coordinate with other team members to ensure its execution.
  • Provide support and technical inputs to the various Fund interventions and ensure that activities are aligned with the communications strategy.
  • Assist in dealings with the Fund's Management Unit and Steering Board.
  • Design and support the Fund's strategic communications in both internal and external dealings. Assist in designing an internal reporting mechanism and produce a plan for external dealings with key stakeholdersRequired Skills:
