Digital Communications Intern

Forum for the Future is looking for a Digital Communications Intern to join our small but perfectly formed Communications Team.

Specifically, we’re looking for a digital native.* You’ll be all about the ‘can-do’ and getting properly stuck in. We need someone that can help improve our practices and make our already socially-engaged organisation the best in the digital world of sustainability.

You’ll know your RTs from your MTs, you’ll have your preferred scheduling platform, and you’ll be able to hashtag beautifully. You gobble up Mashable’s daily newsletter for breakfast, and you can honestly say that Lifehacker’s recommendations and ideas are why your bedroom and kitchen arrangements are as they are. Your smart phone’s got more apps than that Baby Monkey YouTube video has hits (alright, this might be an exaggeration), but you’ve got an app for pretty much every situation life finds you in. You get your news from your news feed, and you’ve – at least once – had an all-too-brief chat with a celebrity on Twitter.

In an interview, you’ll be able to talk us through the latest campaign you assisted on, or the day-to-day management of a Twitter feed and/or Facebook Page, and how you came up with different ideas for your content schedule. (Or, you’ll know exactly what you’d do differently, if you were able to do it again.)

If your application is successful, you’ll be joining our crack comms team during one of our busiest times of year, so you certainly won’t be making the tea (but it’d be nice if you chipped in). We’ll need you at our events, helping us to make them digitally-integrated and helping us catching ‘quotable quotes’ to share across our social platforms. We’ll need you in the office helping us to craft Storifys to share our stories – and you’ll edit and upload our blogposts (you’ll quickly make your way around our CMS). You’ll be brimming with ideas to put into the melting pot for how we talk about ourselves and our projects.

Working with us you’ll learn new skills and, by the time you leave, you’ll have plenty to add to your portfolio (and we’ll help you word it best). You’ll be mentored by our resident digital communications advisor (a digital native herself), and you’ll get to work on the broad range of projects that kick off in September.

Since you know exactly how to navigate a website, and get all the information you need, we’ll leave it to you to find out who we are and what we’re up to (but here’s a starting point).

*How our comms team might define a digital native: someone that’s considered at least once or twice whether it’d be a good idea to get a nyan cat tattoo (and you definitely did – or wanted to – high-five the person you met at that meet-up in east London that got it done on their forearm).

The length of this internship is three months. Full or part-time applications will be considered, although a minimum commitment of three days a week is desirable. Lunch expenses up to £5 a day and travel costs from within London (zones 1-6) can be claimed back.

To apply, please send your CV with a covering letter explaining how you meet the person specification and why you want to work in sustainability communications, together with an equal opportunities form to Helen Saunders, HR Manager, Forum for the Future, London EC1V 3QN or by email to recruitment@forumforthefuture.org CVs should be two pages in length, covering letters one.

Manager, Ending Illegal Fishing Project

The Pew Charitable Trusts is driven by the power of knowledge to solve today’s most challenging problems. Pew applies a rigorous, analytical approach to improve public policy, inform the public and invigorate civic life.

We are an independent nonprofit organization—the sole beneficiary of seven individual trusts established between 1948 and 1979 by two sons and two daughters of Sun Oil Company founder Joseph N. Pew and his wife, Mary Anderson Pew.

Our work lays the foundation for effective policy solutions by informing and engaging citizens, linking diverse interests to pursue common cause and insisting on tangible results. Our projects encourage efficient, responsive governments—at the local, state, national and international levels—serving the best interests of the people. We partner with a diverse range of donors, public and private organizations and concerned citizens who share our interest in fact-based solutions and goal-driven investments to improve society.

With offices in Philadelphia, Washington, DC, Brussels and London and staff in other regions of the United States as well as Australia, Pew provides an exciting learning environment and the opportunity to work with highly talented individuals. We are a dynamic, rapidly evolving organization that values creativity and innovative thinking and fosters strong teamwork with mutual respect.

Environment:

For the past two decades, Pew has been a major force in educating the public and policy makers about the causes, consequences and solutions to some of the world’s most pressing environmental challenges. Our work is focused on reducing the scope and severity of three major global environmental problems:

  • Dramatic changes to the Earth’s climate brought about by the increasing concentration of greenhouse gases in the planet’s atmosphere;
  • The erosion of large terrestrial wilderness ecosystems that contain a great part of the world’s remaining biodiversity; and,
  • The destruction of the world’s marine environment.

Global Campaign to End Illegal Fishing:

At least one fifth of all fish taken from the sea are caught illegally or beyond the reach of regulators. This significantly threatens the health of the global ocean ecosystem and undermines the economies of countless fishing communities around the world. Fishing grounds in developing countries and on the high seas are especially vulnerable to exploitation by companies that engage in illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing. International crime in fisheries flourishes because flag states do not fulfill their legal obligations to control the fishing operations of their vessels, and port states do not have the tools or incentives to identify and prosecute these crimes in port.

There is no silver bullet capable of addressing IUU fishing. Many tools must be marshaled to close down the avenues for illegally caught and unregulated fish. The campaign is working to lay the foundation for a global system of enforcement to combat illegal fishing through the adoption and effective implementation of policy measures that enable the identification and tracking of industrial-scale fishing vessels, the development of practical tools to improve information-sharing among enforcement authorities and the building of the necessary human and technical resources to sanction such vessels if they have engaged in illicit activities.

Position Overview:

This position will be responsible for managing all elements of the campaign in consort with other project managers and working closely with the Director. The focus of the role will adjust to match the weight of effort needed throughout the 5 year campaign strategy but the position will have specific and long-term areas of focus and direct responsibility for development and delivery of those focus areas.

The position is located in our Washington, DC office and will report to the Director, Ending Illegal Fishing Project. It is expected that this position is for a term period through March 31, 2018, with the possibility of an extension pending the success of the program, funding sources and board decisions on continued support.

Job Requirements

  • Providing advice and assistance to the campaign director in identifying and setting highly measurable goals and targets as well as developing timelines and operational plans.
  • Developing and implementing workplans with the campaign director to develop proactive advocacy campaigns to achieve the agreed strategic objectives.
  • Consulting with experts from a variety of fields who can help inform project development and implementation.
  • Organizing and hosting strategy sessions with NGOs, scientists, and other stakeholders.
  • Forging partnerships with key organizations that can advance project goals.
  • Monitoring project budget and overseeing project consultants.
  • Synthesizing the results of various research, investigations and partnerships into a coherent, multi-tiered, multi-year plan for building a global Illegal fishing enforcement system.
  • Working with the campaign director and other international ocean conservation program campaigns to integrate thinking on the campaigning and advocacy needed to end illegal fishing.
  • Collaborating with the campaign director and other Trusts staff to provide project partners/donors with regular updates on project advancements.

Requirements:

  • Bachelor’s degree required; Master’s degree in a relevant area or equivalent experience preferred.
  • A minimum of eight years of relevant professional experience required. Experience in international fisheries policy strongly preferred; some experience with marine conservation and maritime enforcement issues is a plus.
  • Minimum of two plus years of previous direct supervisory experience required including experience managing performance management process for direct reports and providing career development advice and counsel.
  • Prior to commencing employment with Pew, candidates for this position who were registered to lobby in any jurisdiction must certify termination of previous registration(s) and provide copies of termination notices with said jurisdiction(s) to Pew.
  • Demonstrated strong analytical and strategic skills. Ability to synthesize large amounts of information and to focus quickly on the essence of an issue/problem, determine whether it is ripe for intervention and identify the means to address it. A strong commitment to producing measurable results.
  • A task-oriented style, with focus on achieving clear and ambitious goals. Demonstrated ability to meet multiple deadlines by maintaining a high level of organization. Able to develop and move projects forward with a high degree of independence and autonomy.
  • Politically astute; able to understand the needs and motivations of different individuals and international institutions and conceptualize win-win scenarios to satisfy multiple agendas and stakeholders.
  • Excellent written and oral communications skills, including an ease in briefly summarizing the essence of issues and means to address them. Strong oral, presentation, facilitation and written communication skills. Clear, effective writing style.
  • Strong interpersonal skills; able to develop and manage productive relationships with consultants, partners and others who contribute to the development of a project by anticipating possible outcomes. Excellent listening skills. Highly articulate.
  • Exhibits skills of diplomacy. Able to work productively with a wide array of different people and international institutions that frequently disagree with and are in competition with one another.
  • Seasoned judgment, able to justify recommendations, and be responsive, clear and firm with colleagues and partners.

Compensation:

We offer a competitive salary and excellent benefits package.

It is likely that there will be a need to travel nationally and internationally approximately 15% of the time
