- 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.

- 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 as a Spokesperson and/or Public Relations Director.
- Knowledge of how to identify a story and generate media interest.
- Ability to work fast — as media opportunities constantly pop up.
- Strong verbal and written communication skills in English.
- Highly detail-oriented with excellent content-editing and writing skills.
- Comfortable with 100% remote-work.
- Familiar with the field of public diplomacy and the Jewish world.
- Flexibility on working hours required.
Terms and conditions:
- This is a remote-work position – we welcome candidates based in the United States, Europe, and Israel.
- The contract fee will be based on experience and market rate.
- Start date — by January 2022 (with an earlier start date possible).
What we offer:
- An enriching work experience in the field of public diplomacy.
- The opportunity to engage collaboratively with a diverse range of NGOs, governmental entities, diplomatic leaders, media outlets, and activists, and to play a meaningful role in reducing antisemitism and other forms of bigotry.
