Working as part of a team under the supervision of the AI Russia Office Director and in coordination with the Campaigner and the rest of the team, you will develop and maintain Amnesty International’s web presence in the region to ensure maximum impact by posting news, promoting urgent actions and facilitating debates on social networks and in the blogosphere, striving to build up the community and help increase activism. It’s about growing our online presence, supporting and engaging e-activists in the region and reaching new audiences, which is particularly important in areas where Amnesty do not have a physical presence. So as well as maintaining the necessary technologies, liaising with internal teams and external suppliers, you’ll take the initiative on identifying new developments and providing tools for increasing web activism while taking part in global social media and online campaigns where appropriate.
An experienced web operator with textual and multimedia Drupal skills, ideally with some knowledge of Wordpress, you will be expert at using and safely updating modern content management systems. You’ll of course be confident using technology in an innovative, engaging way, knowing exactly how to adapt a message to appeal to any target audience with a good sense of style, usage and appropriateness in both Russian and English. Not only that you’ll know how to promote it through the spectrum of online mediums, including social networks such as facebook, vkontakte and blogging platforms like livejournal. Your expert web skills will extend to some knowledge of search engine optimization and system administration. And as well as that an ability to work in a multicultural environment, confidence working to tight deadlines as part of a self-managed team is essential while fluency in both spoken and written English and Russian is absolutely required.
