Call for a consultant to facilitate the development of an organisational strategy

The UNCAC Coalition is looking for an experienced facilitator to support the development of a new organisational strategy.

Role of the consultant 

The facilitator is expected to:

  • Facilitate kick-off sessions (half-day) at a staff retreat outside Vienna with five staff members to initiate the development of an organisational strategy and a communications strategy (in the second half of August or the second half of September), where we would expect the facilitator to lead discussions among the staff on the organisation’s vision, methods of work, priority areas of action and on its future communication strategy
  • Facilitate several shorter follow-up face-to-face sessions with the team members in Vienna (9th district) over a period of approximately two months following the staff retreat (we estimate 3 to 5 sessions)
  • Advice on the process of developing the strategy, including on the consultation and inclusion of the board, members and external stakeholders

The facilitator should have experience in the development of organisational and communication strategies, in working with non-profit organisations, and an understanding of the context international NGOs are operating in.
