  • prepare and undertake targeted campaigns in news journalism to attract new members, in particular news and media SMEs

  • Disseminate information about CPN (write and manage communications, curate media and social media content (Twitter, LinkedIn etc.), contribute to the CPN newsletter, post to the CPN project website)

  • Maintain a detailed write-up of each action for inclusion in reporting and prepare and submit the final dissemination report

     

Other tasks

  • As necessary, assist with the set up and management of various GAMI workshops, events, on-site visits, conferences, presentations, etc.

Requirements

  • Fluent spoken and written English

  • Excellent writing and communication skills

  • Excellent organisational skills

  • Considerable experience with and outreach to the news media industry
