Job Vacancy: Communications and Digital Content Creator






1.     Background


Field Support Services Project (FSSP) Indonesia is a five-year project (October 2019 – October 2024) funded by Global Affairs Canada (GAC) and managed by Cowater International. FSSP provides administrative, financial, procurement, and logistical services, as well as support to the in-country development programming for the Government of Canada through the provision of technical specialists in gender equality, governance and human rights, and environment and climate action and assisting GAC in procuring and managing local development initiatives. These programs take place in Indonesia and the ASEAN regions.


In Indonesia, Canada’s bilateral development assistance program supports the Government of Indonesia’s National Medium-Term Development Plan 2020-2024 (RPJMN) for inclusive economic growth and is aligned with the Feminist International Assistance Policy’s core action areas of: gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls (through the initiative of  Women’s Voice and Leadership); human dignity (through an initiative on sexual and re-productive health and rights for women and adolescents); growth that works for everyone and environment and climate action (through initiatives that support women-led enterprises and agribusinesses, infrastructure and skills development, and sustainable natural resource management); and, inclusive governance (through the initiative that promotes accountable public financial management for improved public services to the poorest and most vulnerable).


In Southeast Asia, Canada is supporting poverty reduction efforts through bilateral and regional development assistance programs. Indonesia is an important bilateral partner for Canada, while regional engagement focuses on ASEAN and its ten member states (Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao People’s Democratic Republic (PDR), Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam). More specifically, Canada is supporting the ASEAN region in promoting growth that works for everyone (through initiatives that support small and medium-sized enterprises, scholarships and student exchanges);  inclusive governance (including initiatives that promote and protect the human rights for women and marginalized or vulnerable groups, including migrant workers and ethnic minorities); and human dignity (including initiatives that strengthen gender responsive, inclusive disaster risk management by ASEAN).


The FSSP is enabling GAC to deliver on its commitments and expected outcomes of the Indonesia bilateral development program and the ASEAN regional development program.  It provides specialized knowledge and expertise of Indonesia and the ASEAN region, which broaden GAC's understanding of local development issues. Through procurement of technical specialists, it facilitates delivery of a range of technical services including strategic, technical analysis and advice in line with Canada's development priority themes, sectors and initiatives, including cross-cutting issues; knowledge-sharing; monitoring of investments, including results reporting, capturing lessons learned and risk assessment; and support for emerging priorities.
