The Communications Officer’ works to enhance content generated from teams across the Asia and the Pacific Region (AP), increasing awareness and visibility of International IDEA activities through online and media presence. The Communications Officer will gather information and drive content conceptualisation to create and disseminate communications and promotional content around key issues, events and publications. The Communications Officer understands the politically sensitive environment in which International IDEA operates, is highly reactive when International IDEA faces criticism in the media and assists in coordinating responses across the relevant teams.
We are a uniquely positioned Intergovernmental Organisation working to support democracy worldwide. With our headquarter in Stockholm, IDEA's Asia-Pacific Regional Programme has country offices in Australia, Nepal, Fiji and Bhutan, with projects also running in Philippines, Myanmar, Indonesia, Afghanistan and Sri-Lanka.
We are a very small and close-knit team of likeminded academics and admin support staff based in Canberra, working out of the ANU Campus. You will also be coordinating with a very diverse range of colleagues across the Asia-Pacific Region and our headquarter in Stockholm.
This is a newly formed position which requires someone who has some understanding of the space International IDEA is working in and can self-drive towards the objectives while bringing in their own creative ideas.
