Contexto y objetivos
UNV's Volunteer for Events (V4E) Service Line seeks to develop a service that results in innovative volunteer solutions for partners. The project aims to deliver a fully-fledged corporate modus-operandi supported by policies, system and tools. UNV will provide a diversified menu of services to partners accompanied bu communication products, operationalize an online multi-langual platform for volunteer mobilization, recruitment and management. Delivery of the Service Line to date has relied on ad-hoc efforts, without the support of fully-systematized business applications. UNV must ensure the quality and further development of its services and capacity to respond to the needs of partners. To this end, we require two UN Online Volunteers to help us translate four presentations (120 slides) from Spanish to English. The presentations will be split and emailed to the selected volunteers for translation.
Traducción e interpretación
Based on UNV's Strategic Framework volunteering for events paves the way to enlarge the scope of support, facilitation and integration of volunteerism into international, national and regional events and into national practices and policies. A talent solution such as volunteering for events would expand the opportunities for people to contribute to the work of UN partners by: responding rapidly and effectively to meet the needs and interests of UN partners through deployment of Event Volunteers to support events organized by UN Entities; and enhancing UN partners' capacities by supplementing existing volunteer talent solutions. In this context the Volunteer Solutions Section (VSS) is working on development of the Service Line 'Volunteers for Events' (V4E) to provide partners with management and organizational support for large-scale events and international, national and regional conferences. The Service Line follows three main objectives: generate knowledge and assemble evidence for integrating volunteerism into the 2030 Agenda; strengthen the volunteer infrastructure; and increase volunteer mobilization.

We are looking for professional translators whose mother tongue is English and have excellent command of Spanish. Previous experience in translation would be an additional asset. General understanding of volunteerism, event management and global development issues is important.

Most organizations find the volunteers they need within just a few days and close the opportunities to more applications. So if you see a project that interests you, apply right away and make sure that you show the organization that you have the right skills and motivation for the task!

Online volunteering is rewarding and empowering, but it’s also a serious commitment. When you are chosen for an assignment, the organization is counting on you to complete it.

Our online volunteer community is made up of bright, dynamic, committed individuals who enjoy bringing out the best in each other and in the organizations they serve. We expect all volunteers to maintain high standards of behaviour, and to refrain from any activity that could be detrimental to the assignment, the organization, other volunteers, or to UNV.
