The Position

We are looking for a Communications Specialist who can strategically identify and post engaging content for our social media feeds and other channels, which will inspire people to support our work with refugees and asylum seekers in Epirus. You are the person who thinks “this would make a good post” while activities are taking place. More than that, your interest and belief in social media as a force for good should be backed with an interest in data and analytics, using them to influence our social media communication strategy.

The Role Will Include:

  • Interacting with our Instagram, Facebook and Linkedin communities to increase engagement, followers and the quality of user experience
  • Identifying key influencers and conversations that we should engage in to better showcase our work and expand our reach
  • Managing our other channels of communication, including newsletters, donor reports and blogs

You should be able to:

  • Communicate effectively in English, both verbally and in writing
  • Be proactive, and have a problem-solving mindset
  • Manage a Facebook, LinkedIn or Instagram feed in a professional capacity
  • Create and deliver social media strategies for specific projects
  • Produce regular reports using Facebook Insights, LinkedIn Analytics, Google Analytics or similar tools
  • Keep up-to-date with the latest trends/developments in social media communications
  • Manage and prioritise multiple tasks and be flexible
  • Deal with a variety of internal and external stakeholders.
  • Identify key influential external figures and agencies to further our social media reach and impact
  • Find creative solutions to communications challenges
  • Analyse data and adapt strategies accordingly

The ideal candidate will have:

  • Experience working in a refugee context or with a vulnerable population
  • Experience working in an NGO, Charity or in the field of human rights

What We Offer:

  • A nurturing and collaborative working environment. We work hard to help our volunteers grow, because we are invested in their development – both professional and personal. You will have the opportunity to learn new skills from experienced colleagues, and to pursue things you are interested in and passionate about.
  • Accommodation in a shared house
  • Transportation to/from work
  • After completion of a three-month trial, if you commit long-term, a small monthly expenses refund

In certain periods of the year, demand is extremely high, and the volunteer houses might be full. If you have the means to pay for your own accommodation, please let us know. We would still be happy to host you if space is available. However, in a situation where the volunteer houses are full, this would allow us to offer a volunteering opportunity to someone that cannot afford to pay rent.
