Opportunity Details


PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND IMPACT

After two years connecting candidates on our social-sector jobs platform we have met hundreds of inspired professionals who wanted to use their skills to make a difference. But all of them have the same question: What exactly is the development sector?

To help answer this question, we are proud to announce our new evolution a platform for socially-minded professionals to understand the intricacies of the sector, through articles and learnings from sector thought-leaders like you. Think of it as Pinterest meets Reddit for the social sector. We are going beyond Facebook and LinkedIn, with a singular goal of spreading social sector know-how across the globe. 

Currently, our we have primarily targeted the Indian market as we wanted to be close to the ground in a developing country to understand the intricacies of social work at the grassroots. Given our recent pivot into the digital content world, we believe the US market might be most receptive to sharing/learning online - but this is just a hypothesis. While we continue to push our work in India, we want to start tapping into social development professionals in the US as well, and compare the markets.

This is a very early stage idea, but if it takes off, it can change the world of learning and collaboration for the sector across the globe. We are looking for a volunteer to test our hypothesis. This person would be responsible to reach out to a large database of nonprofit and social enterprise players and incentivize them contribute domain specific content and engage with existing information already on the portal through upvoting and comments. 

This role requires email marketing campaigns, phone calls (and potentially in-person meetings), setting up partnerships with umbrella organizations as well as some online marketing. The goal is to drive as much as traffic as possible to the site, contributing + consuming social content. 

 

DELIVERABLES

This is a 3-6 month opportunity:

  • Create a database of 500 organizations we would like to approach during this period
  • Create partnership opportunities with at least 100 of those organizations to begin posting interesting content - We call these areas "company channels"
  • Identify key resources to target and/or place ads for content consumers (ie: social media, communities, meetup groups, coworking spaces)
  • Track audience traction in 1) number of visitors 2) number of contributors 3) engagement via comments 4) upvoting

Ideally, we would like to get to 10,000 users in 6 months to show "success"

NEEDED SKILLS:

  • Brand Strategy
  • Communications
  • Crowdfunding
  • Sales
  • User Research

NEEDED LANGUAGES:

  • English

LEARNING OPPORTUNITY

We provide a great place for anyone interested in personally learning about the sector. When someone for example tells us they want to work in Education, that sector in and of itself, is so vast. Did you want to be in schools? Did you want to be in Technology? Governance? Often these questions are hard to answer, and this portal is meant to dispel that information gap. If an experteer joins us in this process of early development, not only will this be a great opportunity to grow and create something of value, but it will clearly be a huge learning process for the experteer themselves. 

TRAVEL STIPEND

To be determined with the selected candidate

ADDITIONAL BENEFITS

  • Access to our awesome team!
  • A startup with high ambitions to make a difference!

VIRTUAL

This opportunity accepts applications for virtual experteers.
