This is a UNV contract. More about UNV contracts.

UNV offers support to UN partners and Member States at major regional, national and international events. Until now, the delivery of the Volunteers for Events (V4E) Service Line has relied on ad-hoc efforts. To provide innovative volunteer solutions to our partners, the V4E project has developed professional tools to support a smooth implementation of major events (three documents). As UNV must ensure the quality and further development of the V4E Service Line, to respond to the needs of partners, we seek an Online Volunteer who will assist us in editing the design and layout of those tools developed. As the layout has been already designed and applied to the original English version, the Online Volunteer will support our team to ensure that the design and layout of the the translated core documents are aligned with the English original in order to be shared with partners to support a smooth event implementation. In total 15 documents' design will have to be adjusted.

    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 Service Line 'Volunteers for Events' (V4E) provides 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.
