We are currently recruiting for a Communications and Youth Engagement Assistant to join our growing team!
Communications and Youth Engagement Assistant
Providing a platform for young people’s to share their story and for their voice to be heard is central to our vision and mission; listening to our beneficiaries’ views and understanding their emerging needs is also central to the effectiveness and ongoing development of our programme. As such, this role has two key components:
(1) To support the development of high quality, youth-led communications which develop Khulisa’s brand awareness amongst our key stakeholders (including funders, partners, practitioners and policy-makers). Through this work, we hope that our stakeholders have a better understanding of young people’s needs, and understand that positive emotional wellbeing is critical to ensuring young people are equipped to live happy, healthy, crime-free lives.
(2) To develop (and lay the foundations for) a high-quality youth engagement strategy, ensuring young people play a leading role in the design and development of Khulisa’s progammes and their voices are central to our campaigning and advocacy work. As an organisation that places young people’s needs at the heart of all that we do, it is important that we invest resource into this critical role, to bridge the gap between our beneficiaries and our strategic and operational teams.
