As Communications Officer, you will be responsible for helping to develop and implement a range of communications (largely online) initiatives for CISV’s global internal and external audiences and in time supporting our fundraising efforts. You will contribute to the development and implementation of communications policy and strategy for CISV, including working with the Senior Management on internal communications and contributing to crisis communications. A key responsibility in the role will be to coordinate the Communication Team volunteers and support them in developing and delivering a robust and engaging social media strategy and comms schedule and ensuring the website is regularly updates, SEO is enhanced and performance is tracked across platforms. In this broad role you will be the brand guardian and work with external partners such as designers to articulate and support the development of excellent campaigns and materials.
