Business for Peace is looking to hire a Communications Coordinator.

Terms: Full time, permanent

Start date: 1 March 2021

Location: Oslo, Norway

Reports To: Interim Communications Director

Must be based in Oslo, Norway. 

 

 

Job summary:

Business for Peace is looking for a Communications Coordinator to run daily communications operations for the organisation. This includes copywriting, website, social media, public relations, advertising, market research, and more. The Communications Coordinator  will be working closely with colleagues on all teams to promote the organisation and the businessworthy concept globally and execute communications activities related to the annual Summit, other events, the businessworthy pledge, and more.

 

We’re looking for a multi-talented communications professional who enjoys having a variety of tasks in their day. If you can hop from writing a blog post to diving into web analytics to giving graphic design feedback, we want to meet you! The ideal candidate is a skilled storyteller that can produce content, independently project manage whatever needs to get done, and also has an interest in data-driven decisions. It’s a small team, so it’s a very hands-on role with a lot of independence.

 

Business for Peace has ambitious growth plans for 2021, including some exciting communications projects. This role will be responsible for communicating about our programming (with a focus on our annual Award and Summit) as well as increasing our in-house content publishing and advancing our thought-leadership agenda. It’s an exciting time to join the organisation as it grows!

 

 

Essential Job Functions:

The overarching goals for this position are: to increase the reach, awareness of, and stature of Business for Peace globally; accountability for attendance numbers at physical and digital events; and ensuring a positive stakeholder experience across platforms.

 

  • Daily writing and content creation (blog, website, press releases, publications, etc)

  • Lead communications strategy and execution for annual events such as the Summit, award announcement, webinars, and local events 

  • Project management for video production, graphic design projects and print materials

  • Plan, write, create, and send company newsletters and report on analytics

  • Work with freelance designers, video producers, publicists, and other collaborators to achieve communications goals

  • Report on Google Analytics and recommend strategic changes accordingly

  • Build relationships with local and international media, pitch stories and follow up

  • Social media and website oversight (note: we hope to hire a Social Media Coordinator soon to manage social media and web, but for now these tasks are part of this Coordinator’s role)

  • Support the Communication Director in implementing the Foundation’s communication strategy to broaden awareness and participation globally

 

 

Qualifications and Capabilities:

  • Higher education in marketing, communications, or a related field

  • Minimum 2-4 years’ experience in relevant international communications or marketing work

  • Exceptional communication skills with an ability to develop and present strong narratives

  • Excellent English skills, oral and written

  • Good understanding of Norwegian is an asset but not required

  • Understanding of digital platforms and professional experience with social media channels

  • Experience crafting and executing public relations strategies

  • Good collaboration skills, ability to think strategically and innovatively

  • Project management experience, working with internal or external stakeholders 

  • Self-motivated with an ability to manage deadlines and good prioritisation skills

  • Understanding of international business and the sustainability landscape an advantage

  • Experience at a non-profit, international organisation, or social enterprise is an asset
