Background/Rationale for the Assignment
 With a vision to step-up the sustained communication, community-engagement and citizens’ participation in a fragile country setting, UNICEF supported the Ministry of Health (MoH) to commence an Integrated Community Mobilization Network (ICMN) in all 10 state hubs of South Sudan. Currently, the network reaches around 450,000 households covering almost 3 million vulnerable, marginalized and in-need population.  The main objective of these efforts was to ensure that the communities have sustained access to information on positive behaviours and life-saving practices aimed at improving informed decision-making, equitable service demand and enhanced social accountability.
In less than a year, the ICMN has evolved into a social change network that includes around 2500 community-level-mobilizers, with about 500 supervisors supporting their community engagement activities at grass root levels addressing both: humanitarian and developmental priorities and needs of South Sudanese population. In the process of fostering social accountability initiatives, UNICEF engaged 30% of girls, women and mothers with the ICMN while the overall percentage of young people engaged within this network is 85%. This composition is key for further promoting civic engagement and advancement of social accountability mechanisms through its building blocks: identification of (gender related) barriers and inequalities for service demand and delivery; obtaining, analyzing and disseminating information; mobilizing community support, and advocating and negotiating change.
Through the ICMN, UNICEF is building strong linkages with the community influencers, religious leaders, teachers, and other influential groups in a community that have proven to be crucial for building community ownership and sustainable social and behavioural change communication efforts, particularly in fragile and complex country settings such as South Sudan. For that end, UNICEF requires a full time professional.
The communication for development (C4D) consultant will report to the section chief for general guidance and supervision along with reporting to Chief of Field Offices, he/she will play a crucial role in leading the C4D unit and program providing technical and operational support to the Integrated Community Mobilization Network and the development of a systematic and evidence based strategy to promote measurable behavioural and social change.
