Please note that this is a consultancy assignment of a temporary nature, with an expected duration of approximately 4 months. Please note that the assignment requires physical presence at OSCE headquarters in Vienna during the duration of the consultancy.
The OSCE has a comprehensive approach to security that encompasses politico-military, economic and environmental, and human aspects. It therefore addresses a wide range of security-related concerns, including arms control, confidence- and security-building measures, human rights, combating human trafficking, national minorities, democratization, policing strategies, counter-terrorism and economic and environmental activities. All 57 participating States enjoy equal status, and decisions are taken by consensus on a politically, but not legally binding basis.
The OSCE Secretariat in Vienna assists the Chairpersonship in its activities, and provides operational and administrative support to the field operations, and, as appropriate, to other institutions.
The Communications and Media Relations Section (COMMS) supports and advises the Secretary General and the OSCE Chairpersonship on their media and public relations activities and informs the public about the work of the OSCE. COMMS also serves as the focal point for public statements from OSCE Institutions and Field Operations. COMMS produces and disseminates press releases, information materials and regular publications, maintains the public website and the Organization’s social media presence and promotes the OSCE’s values, principles and work.
The OSCE website is developed and maintained as a corporate platform for the benefit of the entire organization. With 85 active content contributors/focal points across our Field Operations, Institutions and Secretariat Units, it is not only the front window of the organization, but its most used repository of institutional knowledge: its more than 120,000 documents and pages are consulted by nearly 3 million visitors every year.
The outdated technical platform of the website is currently being upgraded to a more modern system, to enable the OSCE to showcase the impact of its activities in a modern, compelling way.
The OSCE is looking for a seasoned project manager to lead the project team and manage the project day-to-day.
