You are a maker.
You are motivated by ideas and driven to make things happen. You spot opportunities for impact and are comfortable with both scrappy quick turn around and large-scale campaigns.
You are an activist.
You never stop thinking about power, who has it and how can we change it. You know that no-one is free until we’re all free and are excited to work to support some of humanity’s biggest heroes.
You are a creative communicator.
You make efforts to communicate with clarity, passion and thoughtfulness. You understand the world is changed by the stories we tell and are excited to be part of that change.
You take risks.
You know that sometimes what is needed hasn’t been done before so you’re willing to take risks to make things happen. You are results-focused and won’t allow process, dogma or jargon to get in the way. You are open to new paths to progress.
You are strategic.
You have your eyes on the prize and can develop the right strategies and interventions to get there. You’re not blinded by vanity metrics and care about the lasting impact of your work.
You build relationships.
You know that strong relationships and teamwork is the key to getting things done inside the team and with partners beyond.
You are values driven.
You are motivated by a love for humanity rooted by a strong belief in human rights. You want to work to support some of humanity’s heroes to get their voices into the world.
