Job Description:
Vanuatu Christian Council is seeking a competent and experienced writer to produce training materials in support of their Food Security Project. Previous experience in food security or agriculture is an advantage, but not essential – what is needed is an experienced writer who can work with the Food Security Technical Adviser to take the existing factual material and prepare written training materials and session plans.

The writer will be expected to review existing factual text and consultation findings, interview the food security team for their instructions on content, structure, and style, and then draft training session plans and resources for training participants. Basic layout in Word or Publisher will also be required, using an existing template.

The contract is envisaged to be completed in July to August 2016, for completion of final version in late August. Contract period is up to 20 days to be utilised over 8 weeks, with the bulk of days (3-4 days a week) to be completed between 13 Jul to 5 August. The contractor can work from their own premises or from VCC, and will attend briefings at VCC.

        The writer must have previous experience in:
        • Working from bullet point notes and briefings to produce good quality written materials
        • Preparing training materials, including session plans and resources for workshops
        • Structuring written materials so sections or chapters follow a logical and easy-to-use order
        • Using Word or Publisher to provide simple layout of text and tables and to insert scanned illustrations
        • The writer must be fluent in written and spoken English and Bislama.
        Personal Qualities:
        • The writer must be reliable, and be able to meet tight deadlines
        • The writer must be a good listener, to accurately prepare materials in-line with the Food Security team's needs and expectations
        • The writer must work well in a team, and collaborate closely with Food Security team members.
        Equipment needed:
        • The writer must provide their own laptop for this task.
        Visa Requirements: 
        • Ni-Vanuatu citizens or Vanuatu Residents holding a current work permit are encouraged to apply.
