Organizational Setting and Work Relationships

The Chief of Social Media Section plays a lead role in developing and executing UNHCR¿s social media strategy with an aim to strengthen engagement with key audiences in support of UNHCR¿s operational, advocacy, media and fundraising objectives. This entails developing comprehensive plans to leverage social media content, platforms, networks and partners in line with the key priorities and audiences for the Division of External Relations (DER). In making these judgments, the incumbent will report directly to the Head of Global Communications Service, and work closely with other Chief of Sections within DER.

The Chief of Section will also support social media activities for the Senior Executive Team.

The incumbent will also lead the development and refinement of UNHCR¿s global social media presence, ensuring that our accounts are structured and used in ways that are effective at engaging target audiences and that an appropriate social media crisis communications protocol is in place to address and avert potentially damaging conversations about UNHCR.

  • In accordance with DER¿s communications objectives, drive production of high-impact social media content that effectively informs and engages external audiences and supports media and advocacy campaigns.

  • Provide vision and leadership for the use of UNHCR¿s core social media accounts (notably the global English accounts on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc.) and support the Digital Engagement Section and Private Sector Partnerships with regard to social media marketing. Provide additional support where relevant and needed to social media accounts of other languages, Divisions and Teams.

  • Manage, according to clear principles, access to UNHCR¿s core social media accounts, ensuring their security and accountability.

  • Develop, in collaboration with the News and Media Section and other key stakeholders in DER, an appropriate social media crisis communications protocol to address and avert potentially damaging conversations about UNHCR.
