The success candidate will be offered Consultancy Contract. Applications from qualified female candidates are encouraged.


  1. Background

The consultancy will contribute to the implementation of IOM Indonesia’s project, titled “Empowering Migrant Worker Households and Strengthening Capacities at Points of Entry in Indonesia.” Under the project, IOM will support the (national) Board for the Protection of Indonesian Migrant Workers or the BP2MI to update its pre-departure orientation modules.


Given the COVID-19 pandemic and limitation for physical encounters, the project will support the updating and digitalization of the pre-departure orientation (PDO) module that will be used nationwide through BP2MI’s local branches.  The updated PDO modules will then seek to address information gaps and misinformation that migrants experience.  Thus, the updating will include significant additions on the COVID-19 prevention and mitigation measures and other materials related to the safety and health at works for migrant workers prior to their departure, while on their journey, in destination countries, and upon returning to Indonesia. The updating will also include other important topics that are relevant to the recent needs among migrant workers, such as, among other topics that will be explored with BP2MI and other related stakeholders, this would include:

  1. Mental resilience building and self-care in facing stressful in workplace, including mitigating anxiety, preventing violent extremism in country of destination (building upon migrant’s vision and aspiration in migrating)
  2. Access to skills development (soft skills and hard skills) and economic empowerment (as to prepare later for their return and reintegration post migration)
  3. Financial and remittances management
  4. Access to justice and protection support throughout the migration cycle
  5. Access to social protection, including health care and workers welfare (pension guarantee, old-age security, death security, and job loss security, employment injure security)
  6. Prevention of COVID-19 throughout the migration cycle and Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) in countries of destination
  7. Care and protection to children of migrant workers at home
  8. Country-specific cultures, customs, laws, and regulations (pilot country would include the Republic of Korea and another country that would be determined later in consultation with BP2MI and IOM)
  9. Facilitation technique for instructors of PDO, including in forum organizing, facilitating and communication methods, and utilizing interactive and creative learning materials
  10. Prevention of drugs abuse, HIV/AIDS, trafficking in person, forced labor, and other kinds of exploitation and violent acts


In updating the module, IOM and BP2MI will also look to pilot including country-specific information of some destination countries, such as the Republic of Korea as one of the Indonesian migrant workers’ main destination countries under the Government-to-Government placement scheme.  In doing so, IOM will build upon the previous experience in developing country specific guidebook for migrant workers and the Comprehensive Information and Orientation Programme that IOM implemented in other regions.


The digitalization of the training module will be made available and accessible to all prospective migrant workers who are registered at BP2MI. Through this, migrant workers’ and the instructors’ COVID-19 safety would be better ensured without delaying the delivery of the PDO for outgoing migrant workers. In addition, due to the limited time in the current PDO delivery, the online learning module would also support better and more comprehensive information and knowledge enrichment among the prospective migrant workers.
