ELECTORAL JOB IN NIGERIA


Dear Member (Please contact Kaye Oliver directly if you are interested) I am an ERIS (Electoral Reform International Services) Board member and have been helping ERIS to identify experts to assist with various projects. We contacted PROSPER, the FCO organisation which acts for retired members of the Diplomatic Service, and have been fortunate enough to find two experts. However, we have so far failed to identify anyone to take forward possible projects in Nigeria. I am attaching an outline of what the work involves. The work would be part time, could probably be done mostly from home and a small remuneration might be possible. Many thanks. Yours sincerely Kaye Oliver zen149989@zen.co.uk POSSIBLE PROJECT FOR AN EXPERT ELECTORAL REFORM INTERNATIONAL SERVICES Electoral Reform International Services (ERIS) is a UK-based not-for-profit democracy assistance and advice organisation. ERIS arranges technical assistance; trains, recruits and manages election observers; and organises various democracy support activities. We have some 400 democracy experts on our database and have worked in some 70 countries. MARKETING PLAN FOR 2009 We need the help of an expert with the following project which is envisaged in the ERIS Business Plan for 2009. ERIS WORK IN NIGERIA One element in our implementation of the Business Plan is that we propose to target Nigeria. We therefore seek an expert with experience there. The task will be to secure business for ERIS in Nigeria and to run projects in that country. At present we have four leads for possible work in Nigeria: the British Council is interested in a possible Schools Election Project, INEC (the Independent National Election Commission, the election management body) has told us that it wishes to discuss ways in which we can assist them, the British High Commission has shown interest in assistance from ERIS to the National Broadcasting Commission concerning election media arrangements (the Commonwealth Broadcasting Association has expressed interest in collaborating with us on this), and possible ERIS assistance to the ECOWAS Elections Unit. However, these leads have not been pursued and we are sure that there are other opportunities of which we are not yet aware. Our proposal is that a person with suitable experience should take on responsibility for developing these and managing other aspects of our work in Nigeria, including the investigation of new opportunities. The ERIS Board understands that the office will organise a renewed exploration of the Nigeria possibilities in September 2009.

INTERNATIONAL OIL POLLUTION COMPENSATION FUND 1992

VACANCY NOTICE N° 2008-5

POST

Information Officer, External Relations and Conference Department

DUTY STATION

London, United Kingdom

GRADE

P.2

STARTING SALARY

Base salary for P.2, Step 1, US$46 549 net per annum (dependency rate), and US$43 662 net per annum (single rate) free of United Kingdom income tax.  For additional information on emoluments and other entitlements, see the attached summary.

 

Cost of Living Allowances:  The Staff Regulations provide for the payment of a 'post adjustment' in addition to the base salary.  This payment is made to preserve the equivalent standards of living at different duty stations within the United Nations system by the application of an allowance based on relative costs of living, standards of living, exchange rate and related factors at the duty station as compared to New York.  The amount is determined by multiplying one percent of the net base salary by a multiplier reflecting the classification of the duty station concerned.  The current multiplier for London for the month of July 2008 is 83.2 and the exchange rate is £0.504 to the US$.

 

The dependency rate therefore starts at US$46 549 plus post adjustment of $38 728, ie a total of $85 277 per annum whereas the single rate starts at US$43 662 plus post adjustment of $36 332, ie a total of US$79 994 per annum. Both are free of United Kingdom income tax.
