Long Term Individual Agreement (International) for a Content Editor

Job
Closing date: 03 Aug 2014 UN Children's Fund

UNICEF advocacy for child rights in Maldives requires good communication not only with counterparts and the general public but also with the international community and donors. In order to be effective, many of the reports, publications, studies and evaluations prepared for counterparts, need also to be made available in English. Translations often require further polishing in order to meet the required standard. UNICEF is eliciting the services of highly skilled English editors to proofread and edit UNICEF draft reports and publications before sending them to design and printing.
