• Support in the preparation of web-stories, newsletters -such as the EUpdate-, posts for social media, press releases, as well as to keep contacts with relevant media, as well as in keeping the web-site policy section updated;
• Support in the preparations of the European Policy work towards the IUCN World Conservation Congress in Marseille in 2020;
• Will be required to provide support on a range of tasks as delegated by his/her Line Manager.

The above job description contains the main duties and responsibilities for this position. However, in an organisation such as IUCN, staff members are expected to show flexibility in their approach to work and be willing to undertake other tasks that are reasonably allocated to them but which are not part of their regular job description. Where any task becomes a regular part of an employee's responsibilities, the job description will be changed in consultation with the employee and relevant colleagues.
