Job Description
Background
UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.
UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.

The development sector is changing very quickly, and innovation is becoming the central ingredient in any development intervention. Business as usual no longer has a place in development. UNDP is at the forefront of deploying innovative solutions to development challenges in order to help nations achieve sustainable development goals. One of those initiatives is the integrated innovation ecosystem support programme, the Funguo Innovation Programme (also simply referred to as FUNGUO).

Building on the work of the former Human Development Innovation Fund programme (HDIF), the ultimate aim of FUNGUO is to increase the number of successfully scaled innovation ventures/ startups to contribute to the national development goals and the SDGs in Tanzania. This will be achieved through the programme’s contribution in addressing the stumbling blocks and gaps in the innovation ecosystem that hinder innovative impact ventures from scaling while promoting an environment that empowers innovators and enablers. The three main pillars of the programme are:
  • Innovation Financing: This will include, but not be limited to, building a viable pipeline of innovation impact ventures/ startups, working with partners to provide relevant and flexible financial and technical support innovation ventures /startups and ultimately setting up an autonomous Funguo Innovation Facility that will leverage public funding to unlock private/third party financing and investment.
  • Innovation Service Delivery: Contributing to strengthening the capacity of service delivery institutions (hubs, incubators, accelerators, professional business development services providers, etc…) in order to support and lead innovative start-ups to a stage where they could attract impact and/or commercial investments.
  • Innovation Enabling Environment: working with and supporting policymakers and other innovation stakeholders to promote strategic dialogues, policy influencing and engagement across the innovation ecosystem.

The programme is initially being funded by UNDP, the European Union Delegation to Tanzania and EAC, as well as the Foreign and Commonwealth Development Office (FCDO). The implementation is being led by UNDP Tanzania in partnership with the United Nations Capital Development Fund, UNCDF.

Scope of Work

The Communications, Outreach and Advocacy Lead (Analyst) will assume the overall responsibility to the communication and advocacy function of the Funguo Innovation Programme.

The holder of the position will lead on mobilizing strategic partnerships around key innovation platforms such as Innovation Week and others and will coordinate the programme’s engagement via key social media channels, and develop and nurture partnerships with relevant media houses.

The following are key duties of the Communications, Outreach and Advocacy Lead:

i. Initiate and coordinate efforts to promote innovation for development in Tanzania:
