Opportunities | Institute for War and Peace Reporting
IWPR is accepting applications for professionals with significant media development and media industry experience to join its talent pool. We are looking for Country Directors and Media Consultants or Trainers to participate in future IWPR projects. We are particularly keen to receive applications from Arabic speakers.
We are currently seeking a programmes coordinator for IWPR’s Middle East & North Africa (MENA) division. This is a demanding role which involves coordinating a portfolio of projects and liaising with all staff within IWPR’s largest division. The successful candidate will need to demonstrate superb interpersonal and organisational skills as well as considerable initiative and determination. Key responsibilities will include planning programmes activities, submitting quarterly reports, and monitoring and developing programme budgets. The position will be based in IWPR’s London or Washington DC office and there will also be opportunities to travel to the MENA region to assist with programme activities. Knowledge of US and/or European government grants would be an advantage, as would the ability to speak Arabic. However, intelligence, drive and a willingness to learn are more important than prior experience. Please note you must be legally entitled to work in the UK or US to be considered for this position.
IWPR is seeking freelance grant writers to help develop winning proposals to be submitted to a range of public and private funders. Responsibilities will include working closely with IWPR program staff during the project development phase, writing the proposal narrative, working with finance staff to develop the associated budget and budget narrative, and ensuring that proposal deadlines are met.
