If you like to move at pace on multiple tasks, take projects from design to execution and evaluation, have a flair for messaging and engaging audiences, this role in the area of community engagement/ communications/ online events might be perfect for you.
Apolitical needs to grow and engage certain sub-audiences of public servants more deeply at certain times. This may be because an upcoming offering is especially relevant to them, we have a partnership focussing on a specific sector, or we may be rolling out in new languages.
Apolitical is looking for someone to grow and engage these specific sub-communities. Engagement interventions might look like online events, learning activities, and competitions, amongst other ideas.
Prior experience is not necessary but concrete evidence of the desired skills is. This is likely to be a suitable role for someone of up to 3 years experience, but will vary by individual.
Key activities will involve:
(15%) Researching policy challenges
(5%) Design of ‘community’ interventions to achieve the targeted growth and engagement goals.
(20%) Writing messaging to communicate the significance of a policy issue in a concise and engaging way, and setting up engaging email communications.
(30%) Executing on interventions (eg. like online events, learning experiences)
(25%) Ringleading the activation of distribution channels across the company
(5%) Tracking and evaluation of your interventions.
