4.26.17 – Communications Officer
IFLA Headquarters, The Hague, The Netherlands
The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) Headquarters is looking for an experienced Communications Officer to join a dynamic team and global project.
Over the next ten years, IFLA, will transform public libraries, the library field and itself through concerted and coordinated efforts at the global, regional, and national level. While the ultimate benefit of this work will be seen at the local level through better library services – services helping more people gain literacy, find employment, improve their health, etc. – the effort will be aimed at specific changes in how libraries are led, assessed, and connected. IFLA has outlined a number of activities to initiate this transformation and a key to their success will be the ability to enhance communications and connections between IFLA, its organisational members and individual librarians around the world. The activities should contribute to strengthening IFLA brand. By enhancing impact of its communication actions, IFLA also seeks to widen its audience beyond library and information professionals, attracting international organisations, government, business and enterprise.
