Current Hiring Practices and Trends in the Development Sector
- BY David Mackenzie
Health Policy Plus (HP+) is a USAID-funded five-year project awarded to Palladium (formerly Futures Group) on August 28, 2015. HP+ has a mandate across global, country, and subnational levels to strengthen and advance health policy priorities in HIV, family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH), and maternal health. It aims to improve the enabling environment for equitable and sustainable health services, supplies, and delivery systems through policy development and implementation, with an emphasis on voluntary, rights-based health programs, and by strengthening in-country partners' capacity to navigate complex environments for effective policy design, implementation, and financing aligned to their priorities. We carry forward proven approaches to preserve achievements. These approaches inform how we manage programs and engage with stakeholders, and tools and techniques improve decision making and the achievement of predetermined goals.
In Sindh, HP+ draws from a range of evidence-based capacity development tools and approaches, which may include workshops and training, digital learning, colleague-based learning including mentoring, seconding and on-the-job support, and short-term coaching and technical support. HP+ Pakistan applies system-based approaches that ensure all efforts contribute meaningfully to achieving results, and while institutionalizing the changes, so the production of results can continue. HP+ Pakistan is seeking a video consultant to develop a short video (5-7minutes) and 3-5 40 second clips documenting the journey and successes of HP+'s Women Leaders' Initiative that aims to strengthen women's leadership, advocacy and accountability skills to effectively achieve outcomes; promote collaboration among women champions from public, political and civil society organizations at all levels; and expand opportunities for women to participate in policy advocacy. It builds on the experience and success of women's leadership in family planning and reproductive health programs in past health policy projects.
The consultant will be required to work closely with HP+ to conceptualize, film, edit, and deliver a documentary video and 3-5 40 second clips of the journey and successes of the women leaders' initiative. S/he will take video interviews of the women leaders to record their experiences, learnings and growth through their journey, film some meetings and events in Karachi as well as in one district in Sindh, and take any other footage or photographs as necessary for the documentary. The film will also include photos and other graphics that HP+ has already prepared. The documentary is required to be consistent with HP+/USAID branding guidelines.
Before the final video is delivered, there will be a review process where HP+ will give feedback on the draft video. There will be a minimum of two rounds of review before the video is finalized.
This position is based in Karachi; travel to nearby districts may be involved. HP+ will cover travel and accommodation costs for any travel outside of Karachi related to this consultancy.
