Reporting to the executive director, the communications coordinator will oversee the Sentinel Project’s social media platforms, website updates, newsletters, blog posts, and media outreach.
As a small organization, the Sentinel Project has spent its first decade building programs in Kenya, Myanmar, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Uganda, and South Sudan. During that time, communications work has largely been the responsibility of volunteers or team members who have other primary responsibilities. The Sentinel Project is now working to expand both its activities and geographical coverage, which means that it needs a committed communications coordinator to actively work on outreach and provide a sustained voice for the organization.
The communications coordinator position will require a total of approximately ten hours per week for content creation, social media engagement, and collaboration with other members of the Sentinel Project team. This is a contract position.
Formed in 2008, the Sentinel Project is a small, global, non-profit organization dedicated to assisting communities threatened by mass atrocities through direct cooperation with the people in harm’s way and the innovative use of technology. Our team focuses on initiatives such as building networks to stop the spread of harmful misinformation that contributes to conflict and to warn people about violence if it does happen. We are a diverse group of people who are passionate about human rights and the ways that communications technology can improve lives. If you join our team, you will be part of an emerging approach to atrocity prevention and peacebuilding and will contribute to a meaningful cause within a rapidly growing organization.
The Sentinel Project is grateful to all applicants for their interest in our organization, though if you don’t hear from us within 30 days of applying you can assume that this position has been filled. Although only those applicants who are selected for an interview will be contacted, if you don’t hear from us right away we may still be keeping you in mind for future opportunities with our team.
