- Make CAM a go-to source for information for reporters and media outlets.
- Position CAM as a growing and influential interfaith, apolitical movement.
- Initiate communications activities beyond CAM’s existing workplan.
- Highlight and amplify CAM’s ongoing activities.
- Work in collaboration with the Social Media Director to develop and launch social media campaigns that generate media exposure.
- Collaborate with CAM’s partners and help coordinate joint activities.
- Experience in the Public Relations and/or Journalism realms.
- Knowledge of how to identify a story and generate media interest.
- Ability to work fast — as media opportunities constantly pop up.
- Mother-tongue English level with strong verbal and written communication skills.
- Highly detail-oriented with excellent content-editing and writing skills.
- Comfortable with 100% remote-work.
- Familiar with the fields of public diplomacy, antisemitism, and the Jewish world.
- Flexibility on working hours required.
Terms and conditions:
- This is a remote-work position.

What we offer:
- An enriching work experience in the field of public diplomacy.
- The opportunity to play a meaningful role in combating the rise of antisemitism, in all its contemporary, in the U.S., and engage collaboratively with a diverse range of NGOs, governmental entities, diplomatic leaders, activists, and media outlets, in the collective effort to reduce antisemitism and other forms of bigotry.
