Digital Outreach job at Witness in Brooklyn

24 01 2013

We’re looking to hire for a brand new position at WITNESS, the international organization that trains and supports people to use video safely and effectively for human rights advocacy. The position is based in Brooklyn, NY. 

We are looking for a strategic digital thinker and do-er with innovative content publishing and distribution experience. This position will execute our new digital outreach and engagement strategy, manage our existing web, technology, and content team of 4-6 people, own and drive innovation on our key platforms and channels, and support front line program staff with content, social media, and digital outreach strategies. They will be the content lead for the organization, helping drive innovative yet appropriate video, blog, social media, and graphical tactics for our work, and advise on distribution models in niche interest and geographic communities around the world. They will also support our external relations team to manage our brand and support events and fundraising goals, however traditional “online campaigning”, list/fan growth, and online fundraising activities are not a major focus for the position.

Most importantly they will help strengthen the organization’s in house digital distribution capacity at all levels of the organization and grow capacity for digital thinking in all that we do. This is a unique opportunity to lead an innovative new program that will help WITNESS become a digital-first organization.
