Background and objectives
The Marketing, Outreach and Reporting Unit in the Resource Mobilization Division (TCR) in FAO produces a series of outreach and advocacy material. These include brochures, leaflets, presentation templates, highlight sheets, booklets, and reports. The technical content is prepared by TCR staff, and external support is needed for language editing and proofreading in English. Additional support is needed in drafting content for a variety of outreach publications. The volunteer will work under the direct guidance and supervision of the Programme Officer and will be part of TCR's marketing and outreach team. All work will be done remotely, with weekly skype calls and email exchanges. The volunteer is needed ideally from June to November (six months). Contributions provided by the volunteer will be credited.
