About MAP

Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP) works for the health and dignity of Palestinians living under occupation and as refugees. Our vision is a future where all Palestinians can access an effective, sustainable and locally led system of healthcare and the full realisation of their rights to health and dignity. Through our offices in the West Bank, Gaza, East Jerusalem, Lebanon, and London, we work with trusted and experienced local partners to achieve this vision.

Our programmes provide access to essential health services and build local knowledge and skills to address local health problems. In times of humanitarian emergency, we are ready to respond rapidly with aid and assistance.

We are also committed to bearing witness to the injustices caused by occupation, displacement, and conflict. In the UK and internationally, we advocate for meaningful action to ensure the political and social barriers to Palestinian health and dignity are addressed.

Our culture

Human rights are at the heart of what we do. We are committed to supporting the health and dignity of Palestinians, working to the highest possible standards with fairness, flexibility, and respect. We are a passionate and dynamic team, reacting to a fast-paced humanitarian, political and media environment, while working in partnership and coalitions to make positive, long-term change. We aim to provide a supportive working culture in which you will have opportunities to innovate, grow, and develop your skills and expertise.

Your impact

The impact of every role in our organisation can be felt on a day-to-day basis with the delivery of our programmes, and MAP’s size means that you can have a real influence on the organisation. You will be able to help shape the strategy and implementation of your team’s plans and bring new ideas to bring about change.

 

1. Campaigns and Communications Officer – Permanent

As Campaigns and Communications Officer, you will help develop and deliver MAP’s communications and campaigns strategies to raise the profile of the organisation, increase public engagement with our work and mission, and help us drive for real change in support of Palestinians’ rights to health and dignity.

You will create inspiring and compelling stories, campaigns materials and other content for a variety of platforms, highlighting MAP’s work and its impact, and inspiring our audiences to take action to address the political and social barriers to Palestinian health and dignity. You will manage and monitor our website and social media channels to help increase our reach and engagement in the UK and internationally. Working directly with colleagues in Palestine and Lebanon, you will help coordinate proactive and reactive media outreach, and develop innovative local health and advocacy campaigns, ensuring the participation of the communities we serve.

You will be a confident communicator and persuasive storyteller, with strong interpersonal skills and experience working across different teams to ensure clear and consistent messaging. You will have a keen eye for detail and an in-depth understanding of how traditional and social media can be tools for influencing and achieving change. You will also have a genuine commitment to human rights, international justice, and promoting Palestinian participation in communications and campaigns.
