Digital Content and Communications Senior Coordinator At Save the Children

The Opportunity

My Forest Child is an envisaged carbon offsetting service that channels funds towards resourcing reforestation activities, strengthening vulnerable communities, and supporting child/youth-led climate and environmental campaigning.

The Digital Content and Communications Senior Coordinator (DCCSC) will be responsible for supporting the generation and development of content for digital platforms being created for the My Forest Child project during its pilot phase. The post-holder will design engaging content that supports the My Forest Child’s objectives to attract and retain private sector, public and institutional donors to fund its activities and ultimately improve the lives and uphold the rights of children in associated countries.

Reporting to the Regional Advocacy and Campaigns Director, the DCCSC will work closely with relevant project staff especially in participating countries (initially Nepal and Pakistan) to ensure a range of relevant, multi-media content and communications are generated and developed into high quality, inspiring, and engaging outputs for publication and dissemination, including images, videos and text for web and app publication, updates and newsletters for public audiences and donors, social media posts etc.

Under the technical guidance of the Regional Head of Communications and External Engagement, the DCCSC will conduct a variety of tasks. These include guiding and coordinating with country-based staff to produce a reliable stream of required content, up-to-date website and app content maintenance and social media management, (including designing and scheduling content to be posted), developing and delivering social media plans as necessary. The post-holder will support internal communications to ensure the My Forest Child project coordinator, the wider project team, and other relevant stakeholders are kept informed of progress and issues.

The post-holder’s work will contribute to building the reach and effectiveness children and youth participating in the Red Alert campaign, and will sometimes engage with young climate activists directly. The DCCSC will ensure consistency of messaging, brand and tone of voice both for My Forest Child and Red Alert content that is promoted by the former. The post-holder will use a proactive approach to problem solving. The DCCSC will also support the development digital marketing strategies and help produce periodic reports on digital performance using the Asia Regional Office’s social media analytics tools.

Occasional overseas travel to support content generation and collection as well as promote learning and best practice may be desirable if the initial contract period is extended and the COVID-19 pandemic subsides sufficiently.
