To achieve the goal of decent work for all in Vietnam, the ILO Country Office for Vietnam supports the Vietnam Decent Work Country Programme (DWCP) with three priority areas: Labour Market Governance; Social Protection; and Employment and Sustainable Enterprise Development. In the  implementation  of the DWCP, the ILO Office works in close partnership with the Government of Vietnam, in particular the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA) and its social partners, the representative employers' and workers' organizations of Vietnam. The Vietnam DWCP is an integral part of the One UN Plan.

The ILO Country Office for Vietnam is implementing a project, funded by US Department of Labour, entitled Developing and Implementing a New Industrial Relations Framework in respect of the ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work (“NIRF-USDOL Project”). This post will support work under that project. The project is situated within a programme of four projects, involving additional donors from Japan, European Union (EU) and Canada.

The aim of the project is to assist Vietnam to reform and improve the legal and institutional framework relating to industrial relations consistent with the 1998 ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work. This project was established in the context of supporting Vietnam in implementing labour commitments arising from new generation free trade agreements, such as the EU- Vietnam Free Trade Agreement, and preparations for reforms needed in preparation for the planned ratification of unratified fundamental Conventions, particularly C087 - Freedom of Association and Protection of the Right to Organise Convention, 1948 (No. 87) and C098 - Right to Organise and Collective Bargaining Convention, 1949 (No. 98).

The National Project Coordinator (Social Dialogue) will report to the Chief Technical Advisor (CTA/Project Manager) Programme Manager of the NIRF-USDOL project and will work in close collaboration with the NIRF-USDOL team, the staff of other projects in the programme, and other staff members in the Country Office. The incumbent will also be required to maintain a close working relationship with the ILO Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific and the Inclusive Labour Market, Labour Relations and Working Conditions Branch (INWORK) in ILO Headquarters.
