GIZ Indonesia for "The Digital Transformation Center (DTC) Indonesia": Junior Advisor Public Relations & Communication and Events

 Advancing digital development is one stand-alone development policy objective that the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) is particularly committed to pursuing together with its international partners. On behalf of BMZ, the Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is implementing the Global Programme Digital Transformation to develop innovative BMZ flagship projects on a global scale. Under the flagship “Local Innovation” digital ecosystems in partner countries are being supported. 

The Digital Transformation Center (DTC) Indonesia is part of this global initiative and supports Indonesia in its national digital transformation. The overall aim is to narrow the digital divide, reduce disparities and to give all population groups equal opportunities to benefit from the prospects of digitalisation while enabling them to assess its risks independently. The Digital Transformation Centre Indonesia focusses in particular on the two elements of (1) government advisory and (2) digital entrepreneurship & innovation ecosystems. It is extended by the Make-IT Indonesia initiative. 

Overall, as global partners, Indonesia and Germany are determined to work together to deliver sustainable, climate-neutral and resilient development that benefits the planet as well as its people. The DTC Indonesia therefore is embedded into the wider Indonesian-German development cooperation and its priority areas of:

  • Responsibility for the planet (climate and energy)
  • Protecting life on earth (environment and natural resources)
  • Training and decent jobs (sustainable growth). 

We are looking for a Junior Advisor “Public Relations & Communication and Events” to join our young and vibrant team working on the implementation of the Digital Transformation Center and Make-IT Indonesia.
