GIJN, a fast-growing nonprofit, is looking for a Digital Outreach Director to oversee and coach the work by its regional editors around the world. Duties include supervising the editors’ social media feeds and newsletters in multiple languages, expanding outreach to journalism and related communities, and identifying areas to further develop their work. The position is full-time and is part of the GIJN management team.
GIJN is an association of 184 organizations in 77 countries dedicated to spreading and advancing investigative journalism around the world. This is a unique chance to be at the center of the global hub servicing the world’s investigative journalists at a time of unprecedented opportunities and challenges. You’ll work with a dynamic international team, helping to spread tips, tools, case studies and resources about quality investigative and data journalism around the world. We are looking for a coach, not a micromanager.
GIJN publishes daily in seven languages on multiple platforms with the latest on investigative and data journalism. Our regional editors work on a dozen different platforms, among them Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, WhatsApp, and WeChat. Our regional feeds include GIJN Africa, GIJN Arabic, GIJN Bangla, GIJN Chinese, GIJN en français, GIJN in Russian and GIJN en español. More are planned in the next few months.
Applicants must have a solid understanding of investigative journalism, and a passion for innovation and the sustainability of the craft. A background in managing teams in an online news environment is a must, as is experience with social media and analytic tools.
GIJN is a distributed nonprofit, and this is a remote position: the successful candidate can be based anywhere with a strong broadband connection.
GIJN is staffed by an extraordinary multicultural team based in 12 countries. You’ll work in a collaborative network that is having impact every day on the front lines of journalism.
Location: Flexible. GIJN is a virtual nonprofit. You’ll need good, dependable broadband.
Salary: We’re a nonprofit but we pay a living wage. Salary will depend on your experience.
Note: GIJN is a strong believer in diversity and welcomes applicants regardless of race, color, creed, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, ancestry, citizenship status, or disability.
