Passionate about sustainability? Wired into the online world?
30 Days of Sustainability needs an online community coordinator.
Vancouverâ€™s 30 Days of Sustainability â€“ an annual celebration of sustainability and its role in the world â€“ needs a passionate, articulate coordinator for its web site.
WHAT YOU’LL DO:
Youâ€™ll research and write material on a wide range of issues, talking with Vancouver community organizations, businesses and leaders working across the spectrum of sustainability.
Youâ€™ll manage the operation of a Drupal-based content-managed web site, and assist local organizations in using it to announce and promote 30 Days-related events.
And youâ€™ll animate comments and conversations about how we can make Vancouver a global leader in sustainability.
WHO YOU ARE:
You have three great obsessions: sustainability, great communities and online technology. Chances are you’re involved with a volunteer or advocacy organization. And you probably have your own blog, a personal web site or an online community you call home.
Youâ€™re spontaneous, with an engaging, authentic online voice. You write quickly and well with a distinctive style. Youâ€™d be equally comfortable interviewing a demonstrator at a protest rally and a CEO in a boardroom.
And you understand sustainability: the threats to our local, regional and global environment, and the need for positive change and workable solutions.
ABOUT THE JOB:
Weâ€™re offering a chance to play a leading role in a high-profile online community project. Youâ€™ll be working directly for Social Signal, a leader in building ground-breaking online communities geared to effecting real-world change. You get to work with a team that includes Internet innovators, change leaders and skilled communicators. If sustainability and making a difference are the things that rock your world, this could be your dream job.
This is a full-time contract position with some fixed hours, but we can be flexible. The position will run through May 22, 2007.
HOW TO APPLY:
Tell us about yourself — your community involvement, your interest in sustainability your Web knowledge, your skills as a writer. Tell us why this position interests you, and why youâ€™re the right person for the job. Attach a resumÃ© that details your online, writing and community experience. Include a sample or pointer to your web writing, and a link to your blog, web site or other online presence.
