Established in 1951, IOM is the leading inter-governmental organization in the field of migration and works closely with governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental partners. IOM is dedicated to promoting humane and orderly migration for the benefit of all. It does so by providing services and advice to governments and migrants.
The Ship to Shore Rights South East Asia (SEA) project is a multi-country project which aims to promote regular and safe labour migration among South East Asian countries, in particular in the fishing and seafood processing industry. The Ship to Shore Rights SEA project is funded by the European Union (EU) and implemented by the International Labour Organization (ILO), the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
Under the framework of this program, IOM is leading on delivery of a number of activities, including the design of accessible communications materials for pre-migration decision-making that provide accurate and authoritative information about regular migration channels and the realities and risks of labour migration, as well as communication materials that provide accurate and authoritative information about the rights of labour migrants in Thailand and their access to government and civil society services and support networks.
Building on this work, IOM is looking to review and update its current information materials for migrant workers, particularly to ensure any changes in light of COVID-19 are accurately reflected.
Under the overall supervision of the Project Officer (Counter-Trafficking) and the direct supervision of the Senior Programme Assistant, the successful candidate will be responsible for developing updated and accurate informational messages to be integrated into future information, education and communication (IEC) materials on 1) pre-departure processes for migrant workers coming to Thailand to work in the fishingy and seafood processing industries; 2) regularization procedures for migrant workers who are already in Thailand; 3) access to health insurance and health services during the COVID-19 pandemic along with information on COVID-19 care and services (procedures, requirements and benefits); and 4) information on access to other social and protective services provided to migrant workers by government and civil society organizations.
