We are currently seeking qualified candidates for the position of Social and Behavior Change Advisor for the anticipated multiyear USAID Vietnam Reducing Plastic Pollution project. The program aims to reduce leakage of single-use plastics (SUP) and create an enabling environment for policy development such as extended producer responsibility (EPR) in coordination with a wide range of stakeholders (e.g. national and local governments, private sector, communities, NGOs and Academia).
Social and behavior change is FHI 360’s interactive, participatory approach to communicating with and supporting target audiences to adopt desirable behaviors. We employ a combination of marketing, human-centered design, and behavioral sciences to ensure a holistic view of people’s desires and needs and the barriers and facilitators to behavior change.
The Social and Behavior Change Advisor will provide technical and scientific leadership in designing, implementing and evaluating the project’s Social and Behavior Change Communication (SBCC) strategy. S/he will support the DCOP and oversee a team of SBC officers in providing technical advice based upon expertise and knowledge of evidence-based SBCC methods and strategies, current practice, and established operational and research standards to ensure quality and rigorous design. The SBC Advisor will build the capacity of project staff and government, civil society, private sector and academic partners to plan, implement, and evaluate communication, community mobilization, and advocacy activities, and will ensure that SBCC activities implemented under the program are technically sound and reflect current global best practices.
The position will be based in Hanoi, Vietnam. Recruitment is contingent upon successful award of the project to FHI 360 and final USAID approval of the candidate.
