Behavior Change Communication (BCC) Specialist

1. Background:

This consultancy is a part of the project “Tackling Modern Slavery" from Viet Nam: An interagency programme for behaviour change, access to justice and reintegration support” funded by the United Kingdom’s Home Office. This project tackles modern slavery from Viet Nam through harnessing the capacities of IOM, World Vision and British Council to implement a coordinated series of interventions that specifically align with existing work in Viet Nam, and United Kingdom Official Development Assistance requirements. On the basis of IOM research, the project targets five key target provinces: Nghe An (Yen Thanh; Dien Chau districts); Hai Phong city (Hai Phong city; Thuy Nguyen district); Quang Binh: (Đong Hoi city; Bo Trach districts); Ha Tinh (Can Loc; Nghi Xuan districts); and Quang Ninh (Ha Long city). Under the prevention component, the project aims to prevent vulnerable populations from becoming victims by reducing vulnerability to modern slavery through a behaviour change communication (BCC) campaign entitled “Think Before You Go” which consists of digital and live events targeting specific vulnerable groups at risks of trafficking. While the campaign has been well-received by the target groups as well as implementing partners and achieved certain success, the project is looking to further enhance and add value to ongoing activities in order to augment gained knowledge, changed attitudes and practices regarding safe migration in the changing context of COVID-19.

  • Oversee technical aspects, content and evaluation methodology developed for production of BCC products, including but not limited to a game-based learning activities handbook and a scope of work that guides development of an online course on safe migration and prevention of human trafficking.
  • Work with the project team members to develop content for training courses provided to implementing partners on BCC and inclusion in key workshops and capacity building events with the Community Advocacy Groups.
