Internship Communications & Advocacy Jobs Description
How can you make a difference?
BACKGROUND ON EOF
There are few greater challenges faced by the global community than the twin crises of learning poverty and youth unemployment. In response, the Education Commission (chaired by Gordon Brown, former UK Prime Minister and UN Special Envoy for Global Education) and the Global Steering Group for Impact Investment (chaired by Sir Ronald Cohen) came together to create EOF. We aim to improve the education and employment outcomes of 10 million children and youth by supporting governments to utilize a range of innovative finance instruments at scale, including outcomes funds and other results-based financing (RBF) instruments.
EOF supports improvements in the quality of education and skills programs, with a special focus on underserved populations, including the hardest to reach, rural populations, girls, children with disabilities, and refugees. It measures (and pays for) what matters – both core skills like literacy and numeracy, but also critical 21st Century skills such as socio-emotional skills, ICT skills, and other broader fundamentals of a quality education. It helps close the persistent gap between the skills needed by employers and those attained by today’s youth by paying for employment and retention outcomes.
For all the above, EOF pays primarily on the basis of the results achieved, ensuring that taxpayer-funded domestic resources, aid, and philanthropic funds are only used to pay for what works. This is a game-changing way to finance results in education. It is more than just a fund – it is a powerful new set of partnerships and way of working.
Together with our supporters, we believe this is the early stages of a much larger movement. Our approach is at the cutting edge of development finance, shifting risk to the private sector, crowding in private capital, and harnessing the capacity and capability of non-state actors, with huge potential to achieve better outcomes for children and youth around the world.
RATIONALE FOR THE CONSULTANCY
We are seeking to recruit a high-calibre intern to support with EOF’s external communications.
PURPOSE OF THE ASSIGNMENT
The Communications & Advocacy intern will become a core part of EOF’s communications and advocacy team and support the team with all aspects of our external communications. The intern will report directly to the Head of Communications. You will also collaborate with all members of the EOF team.
TASKS AND RESPONSIBILITIES
Responsibilities will include, but not be limited to, the following
Develop external communications material, including articles, website content, and social media posts, in order to showcase EOF’s impact and progress across our focus areas.
Provide editorial support through proofreading external communications assets produced across EOF teams.
Provide logistical support for in-person and virtual EOF events and convenings. This includes external communications, event preparation and execution.
Support the communications team to build relationships with peer organizations and potential partners through, for example, participating in calls and webinars and managing key communications with external parties.
Advance the communications team’s internal co-ordination of cross-team projects and tasks through regular engagement with colleagues in other EOF teams.
Write proposals and prepare pitch materials to promote EOF to potential partners and fundraising prospects. This could include, for example, narrative on the broader innovative finance eco-system and where EOF fits in.
Drafting donor reports in order to update donors on our progress.
Prepare supporting materials to be presented at quarterly governance meetings with our board and our Communications and Advocacy sub-committee.

Ability to manage a high workload in a fast-paced environment, with strong attention to detail and a high bar for quality; manage concurrent timelines, independently prioritize tasks and work.
Additional consideration will be given for any relevant communications and/or advocacy experience. Experience implementing communications strategies in a complex or international environment, and experience with digital channels and web design is desirable.
A degree in a relevant subject, such as communications, international development, political science, education, or a related field, would be preferred.
Experience or an interest in international development, the global education sector, and international aid is desirable.
We have a global mandate and a global team, with staff based across most continents. However, the majority of our team are London-based, and candidates may need to be available during a significant portion of UK working hours (to be determined on a case-by-case basis). Remote and hybrid working options will be considered. Please note that EOF cannot currently sponsor interns to work in the UK.
The monthly amount of internship stipend is the amount that is lower of the following two amounts:
USD 1,700 per month in the following offices: New York, Geneva, and Copenhagen; or 70% of the monthly salary of the GS level 3 step 1 in all other the duty stations.
EOF follows UNICEF’s rules and regulations in human resources management. Applicants are encouraged to read the FAQs on the UNICEF Internship program – which apply also to EOF – available at this link: https://unicef.sharepoint.com/sites/DHR/SitePages/Internship-Programme.aspx
The internship is expected to start on Monday 06 March 2023 and finish on Friday 25 August 2023. Please note that candidates who cannot commit to a six-month internship, working full-time, cannot be considered for the positions.
Please note that longlisted candidates will be asked to take two short aptitude tests, w/c 12 December.
The subsequent assessment process for shortlisted candidates will involve a written test and two rounds of interviews and is expected to run across December and January.
Unfortunately, due to the potentially large number of applications, we will only be able to contact applicants who are invited to the next stage of the process and will not be able to provide feedback to candidates that are not shortlisted.
