Date de début : Septembre 2021

Durée de l’affectation : 3 Mois

Exigences linguistiques : Français Niveau 5 - Pleine maîtrise

Ouvert aux citoyens canadiens et aux résidents permanents du Canada seulement


Rôle du coopérant-volontaire
OPEC, FFP, SCOSAF et SJS comptent parmi les organisations congolaises partenaires de Cuso International dans le cadre de la mise en œuvre du projet SHARE (Sharing Canadian Expertise for Inclusive Development and Gender Equality / Partager l’expertise canadienne en matière de développement inclusif et d’égalité des sexes) en RDC.



Elles centrent leurs actions autour de l’autonomisation de la femme sur les plans politique, social et économique. Actuellement, elles mettent en œuvre des projets au profit des femmes qui touchent diverses questions, notamment le genre, l’égalité homme-femme, le VIH, la pratique Sage-femme, l’usage des TIC, les droits sexuels et reproductifs, la lutte contre la pauvreté, la masculinité positive, le développement économique…



Pour atteindre leurs objectifs, ces organisations utilisent différents outils et moyens de communication, dont un site-web. Si ces sites web ont le mérite d’exister, ils ne sont pas toujours correctement utilisés. Ils ne sont pas mis à jour régulièrement. Ils ne sont ni dynamiques, ergonomiques, modernes ou adaptés au public-cible. Par ailleurs, ces organisations comptent rarement en leur sein un spécialiste en communication, ou une personne apte à faire évoluer les sites web.



Cette affectation à distance vise à appuyer les 4 organisations dans l’exécution de leur mission, et plus particulièrement dans l’amélioration de leur site web afin qu’ils communiquent mieux avec leur public cible, et qu’ils l’utilisent comme un véritable outil au profit de leurs actions.



La personne sélectionnée devra mener les activités suivantes :
Organiser une séance préparatoire avec chacun des 4 partenaires pour expliquer l’approche, la méthodologie et les exigences du travail à distance
Élaborer un plan de travail avec chacun des partenaires
Analyser le site web des 4 partenaires et, formuler les suggestions nécessaires pour qu'ils soient plus ergonomiques, performants, innovants, actualisés et adaptés à leur public-cible.
Intégrer, le cas échéant, les suggestions proposées aux sites des partenaires.
Appuyer les points focaux des 4 partenaires à intégrer les contenus proposés aux sites.
Former les personnes désignées par les 4 partenaires pour leur expliquer les aménagements réalisés et les conseils pour maintenir les sites.


Compétences académiques essentielles:
Bac+3 en informatique, métiers du numérique, multimédia, design, web designer, ou toute formation dans un domaine pertinent.


Expérience / Compétences professionnelles essentiels:
Expérience de minimum de 2 ans dans la création/adaptation et gestion de site web
Expérience dans l’adaptation de sites web aux différents interfaces (ordinateur, mobile, tablette…)
Expérience dans la modernisation d’un site selon les évolutions du secteur


À propos du coopérant-volontaire
Le programme de volontariat virtuel de Cuso International accueille de nouveaux et anciens bénévoles à travailler à distance avec nos partenaires internationaux et bureaux pays. Le volontariat virtuel offre plusieurs des avantages du volontariat international, cependant se démarque pour sa flexibilité; pouvant être géré à partir de chez soi et en accord avec sa disponibilité. Contribuer ses compétences à une communauté, acquérir de nouvelles compétences, et de faire de nouvelles connexions sont les avantages communs du volontariat virtuel, et pour Cuso International c’est aussi une grande opportunité pour engager plus de personnes dans sa mission.

Certains de nos partenaires se trouvent dans des zones reculées avec une connexion Internet peu fiable. Par conséquent, lorsque vous travaillez avec les partenaires, il est raisonnable de supposer que les réponses à vos courriels ne seront pas envoyées immédiatement (structure change in this sentence). De plus, pour certains de nos partenaires, il s'agit de leur première expérience de travail avec des volontaires virtuel, de sorte que la flexibilité et la patience sont une caractéristique précieuse du volontariat virtuel.
