Vacancy Announcement for the television talk shows on Social Protection

Deadline: 2022-06-20 06:00 pm

Established on 16 February 2012, Social Protection Civil Society Network (SPCSN) has been active in raising the voice of right holders, promoting interfaces among right holders, experts, and duty bearers, and making duty bearers more accountable on various social protection issues.

Vulnerable groups in Nepal have been compelled to stay behind in living their life indefinitely due to many reasons including abject poverty, socio-economic context, and natural disasters. The existing non-contributory social security program widely covers the vulnerable population even though there have been some coverage issues.

Scope of the assignment

The consulting firm is a member of the TV talk program that will produce 10 episodes of a television talk show on social protection. To grease the issues and for better coverage, the team will propose to host the program on national television, preferably on Kantipur television. In the planning stage, at least 30 representative case studies/video bytes will be collected from various parts of the country that would include relevant stakeholders and beneficiaries of social protection. Each episode will contain a minimum of 3 case studies (2-3 mins per byte) based on the weightage of the issue.

Remuneration and other costs

SPCSN will negotiate upon the submission of a financial proposal both for the production, broadcasting, and case stories collection, edit, and voice-over per episode (altogether 30 case stories on social protection from all provinces based on the title of the dialogue) of a television talk show. Tax will be deducted as per the Government Tax Policy.

Deadlines of submission:

The final dates of submission will be for 20 June 2022, 18:00 hrs. A later submission shall automatically be disqualified from the screening processes. We encourage you to send your conceptualized production design (2-3 pages), a visual piece of previous similar sorts of work experience, price quotation, registration, company profile, and registration document for the early screening.
