The Company is expanding its pool of Subject Matter Experts in Strategic Communications. These tasks may be of short duration (a matter of weeks) and at short notice (potentially less than 14 days) and they may provide longer duration work, including full time contracts of up to 3 years.
The expectation in each case should be for travel, including Europe, MENA, East and West Africa, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Prior country experience and the relevant language expertise will be highly valued, although it is not mandatory for consideration. Past performance in government, or in governmental capacity-building will be a distinct advantage. A very high standard of spoken and written English will be essential. The home base can be anywhere as travel needs will be supported.
Most tasks will be undertaken as part of a small team headed by a member of the Company who will take responsibility for logistics, and for security needs where that is applicable. No advance commitment is required beyond a preparedness to pass interview and a willingness to consider opportunities when notified directly and respond within 3 days.
