ENS is seeking a Communications Coordinator to coordinate and support ENS' communications work, and to play a key role in enabling ENS to fulfil its mission to end statelessness in Europe
This is a new post and a great opportunity to work at the forefront of one of the most pressing human rights issues. The successful candidate will design and deliver new ways of raising awareness and galvanising action to end statelessness.
We are looking for someone with a solid track record in online communications (including using web analytics, CMS and social media management platforms), media work and developing engaging content to affect change on hard-to-win issues.
Working under the supervision of the Head of Communications, Operations & Development, the postholder will help increase issue awareness and mobilise key audiences to act. This will involve driving acquisition of new followers (across different channels) and converting them into supporters though online actions and donations. The post will work closely with our members and staff in ENS’ policy team to increase the impact of our advocacy work. The postholder will be responsible for managing communications across our network of members and supporters. Finally, they will support our efforts to put people and communities affected by statelessness at the centre of our communications work.
The post’s day-to-day responsibilities will among other things involve coordinating a busy online publishing schedule, managing social media, and helping deliver ENS’ planned #StatelessJourneys campaign to promote the rights of stateless refugees and migrants in Europe.
The successful candidate will have experience working in a busy communications environment and be able to show an aptitude to successfully engage in raising awareness and delivering engaging content.
The candidate will be highly articulate in English (other languages are an asset) with experience of working with diverse communities and stakeholders. They will be able to effectively work within networks and coalitions.
The candidate will be contributing positively to our dynamic organisational ethos and cross-team working where all ideas are valued, and innovation is encouraged. They will be able to fit well into a fast-paced and demanding environment with an international focus. We are looking for someone with the interest to develop their skills as we take on new challenges in fulfilling our five-year strategic plan. The role represents an exciting opportunity for candidates with the necessary aptitude, flexibility and ambition, as well as a commitment to work with stateless people across Europe to improve their lives.
We particularly welcome applications from stateless (or formerly stateless) individuals, people from a migrant, refugee or minority background, and other under-represented groups.
Although the post is advertised as an 18-month fixed-term contract, the intention is to fundraise to extend the post on a permanent basis as an important function within the ENS Secretariat.
