The project has a specific focus on strengthening the capacity of the Jordanian government to develop and implement its national migration policies. The project component under which this position is published aims at: 

Component I: Specific objective: Strengthening the capacities of Jordan to more effectively reach out to and engage with Jordanian expatriate communities abroad.

Please note that this position is subject to approval and availability of project funds.

Job Description:
The expert will contribute to the implementation of the activities implemented under Component 1 of the JEMPAS Project. In this vein, the project aims at supporting the efforts of MOFAE to operationalise the recommendations of the July 2015 Jordanian Expatriate Conference (JEC) as well as the goals of the Expatriate Strategy and Implementation Plan. One of the key actions of this component is to boost outreach to and communication with Jordanian expatriates.

As such, the JEMPAS team has been working closely with MOFAE to strengthen their outreach by elaborating a communications plan which is to be used as an implementation guide to be followed by MOFAE and the Digital Presence Unit (DPU) (see more information below). In addition, ICMPD has supported the development of an online database and application, Izwitna, which aims to support outreach services to expatriates and help foster a stronger connection between them and their country of origin. This expatriate database will help MOFAE target communication to users more effectively and according to their interests. To this end, JEMPAS is supporting a seconded communication expert to the Department of Media and Communication of MOFAE, the aim and activities of which are outlined herein. 

The expert will provide support for MOFAE’s Media and Communication Department to implement the Ministry’s communication plan for engagement with expatriate Jordanians living outside of Jordan. This plan is pursuant to the objective of the national Strategic and Implementations Plan for Expatriates that was developed in 2014, and focuses on a mix of key online and offline channels to assist with messaging targets:

Foster cultural connection with the homeland;
Encourage engagement for economic and social development in Jordan;
Improve the provision of consular services; and
Protect the rights and interests of those living abroad.
