Are you a talented Program Manager with an interest in journalism and press freedom?
The ACOS Alliance is seeking an experienced and enthusiastic Program Manager to join a small, passionate and ambitious team committed to improving safety culture and practice within global journalism.
The ideal candidate will have the knowledge, expertise and skills to work with the Executive Director to develop and implement ACOS’ global program of activities, including safety training courses, workshops and online resources that help newsrooms and international freelance and local journalists embed a culture of safety within their working practices and meet the basic standards outlined in the Freelance Journalist Safety Principles. This key role involves liaising with a large and diverse network of international stakeholders, from media organizations and NGOs to individual journalists and safety experts.
The ACOS Alliance is currently developing an online safety training course for news editors and once funding is confirmed, this role will also manage this project, interfacing with partners, safety experts and supporting the content creation process.
This is a highly rewarding, exciting new position for a creative and motivated individual keen to develop new projects and build valuable relationships while also managing a range of established, ongoing activities. The successful candidate will join a supportive, ambitious team leading an effective, well respected and growing organization that has yet to realize its full potential. We offer a friendly, flexible work environment in terms of hours and location, with opportunities for travel, training and development.
