This is a UNV contract. More about UNV contracts.
UNDP provides policy and technical advisory support to the Government of Malaysia in accordance with the current Country Programme Action Plan (CPAP) as approved by the Cabinet. The current Country Programme Action Plan, now extended to 2023 is aligned to the development priorities of the 11th Malaysia Plan with sustainable human development agenda at the forefront, underpinned by three priority areas: (a) inclusive development and growth; (b) sustainable and resilient development; and (c) governance.
UNDP Malaysia is transitioning into a new CPAP aligned with the 12th Malaysia Plan. UNDP Malaysia is producing a public-facing report, the “Work in Progress” to communicate narratives about UNDP work in the past CPD cycle and link these to Malaysia’s current and future sustainable development needs. The report differs from traditional UNDP reports in that it builds around creative writing and other storytelling tools, supplemented by accessible commentary and analysis.
UNDP Malaysia is looking for support to illustrate the narratives—told from the perspective of project partners and beneficiaries—in the report, “Work in Progress.” These illustrations will be used to bring narratives to life and to add dimensions to the story that are better communicated visually. In keeping with the theme of “work in progress,” the illustrations will take the form of unfinished pencil sketches.
We are looking for one Online Volunteer who, under the guidance of the Head of Experimentation, Accelerator Lab and in close collaboration with the report team, support us by:
- Producing three pencil sketch illustrations.
- Providing detailed guidance on integration with report layout and design.
Note that the volunteer will need to communicate in both English and Malay and will need fluency in both languages.
The Online Volunteer will have the opportunity to build connections with the UNDP Accelerator Lab and report team at UNDP Malaysia and learn about various sustainable development initiatives UNDP is undertaking in Malaysia.
We welcome candidates from any background. Candidates will be evaluated based on artwork portfolio—please include this in your application. Competency with pencil sketches (traditional or digital) is a must. The following are considered assets: a recommendation from a former client, detailing candidate’s competency and ability to deliver under pressure; and any formal certification in art, graphic design or related field.
