Job Description

Most Mira is hiring a part-time Board and Communications Coordinator to give support the Board of Trustees and provide social media oversight.

About Most Mira:

Most Mira is a peace and reconciliation arts charity that works in post-conflict Bosnia and Herzegovina. Our vision is to support the process of reconciliation and peacebuilding by creating a safe space for young people from all ethnic groups to learn and develop together, forging better relationships for a peaceful and tolerant future. Our arts projects and peacebuilding programmes have been developed over the last 10 years and are now being used as examples of best practice in the sector. 

Most Mira has recently received a large capital grant which will enable us to build the Peace Centre that the local young people we work with have long asked for. It is a very exciting time for us as a charity.

This means that 2019 will be a busy year as we build the Peace Centre and continue to deliver our arts and peacebuilding projects on the ground. To that end we will need more secretarial and communications support and a degree of flexibility as the work flow may well fluctuate around various board meetings.

The role:

The Board and Communications Coordinator role requires integrity, excellent organisational and administrative skills as well as some previous communications and administration experience. Preparing for Board meetings would involve liaising with the Chair to circulate the agenda, working with relevant Trustees and staff to gather Board papers, taking and sharing minutes, and keeping track of agreed actions. A similar process would be needed to support the newly formed Capitol Committee.

The role also includes knowledge management tasks, calendar management and monthly communication tasks. These would involve sending quarterly newsletters and updating our social media platforms and website on a monthly basis through liaising with project staff and relevant trustees. We are keen to reach more supporters and would welcome a candidate who could develop and deliver a communications strategy deliverable within our means. 

Time commitment:

We are looking for an efficient and talented colleague to join our charity and work 1 day a week (8 hours)- which could be split over two days. The Board and Communications Coordinator would need to work at monthly evening meetings in Central London, these would either be for the Board of Trustees who meet bimonthly or the Capitol Committee (overseeing the fundraising and building of the Peace Centre) who meet quarterly.

Fee: up to £800 a month (based on a daily rate of £150 per day for one day per week). Contract for 6 months initially. 

Person Specification:

Essential

  • Commitment to the aims and mission of Most Mira.
  • Interest in youth work, the arts and peacebuilding sector.
  • Willingness to work from home, and work at monthly week night evening meetings in central London.
  • Previous communications experience- particularly using mailchimp/mailmerge for newsletters, uploading website content and managing social media feeds.
  • Developing a social media and communications strategy to discuss with the Board.
  • Excellent organisational and time management skills: the ability to prioritise tasks, be flexible, work independently and work to deadlines.
  • Excellent interpersonal, oral and written communication skills.
  • Attention to detail.
  • Minute taking.
  • Strong IT skills – e.g. excel, newsletter generation, web content management system.  

Desirable

  • Bosnian speaker
  • Previous Charity Experience
  • Previous Board support experience

Most Mira aims to attract and retain talented people from all backgrounds. We particularly encourage applications from migrant and refugee communities as these groups are currently underrepresented in the cultural sector.

To apply:

To be considered for this role, please send us a cover letter (of no more that two A4 sides) telling us how you fit the role and why it is of interest and a CV responding to the person spec.

The deadline is 5pm January 23rd 2019 and interviews will be held in London the week after- though skype interviews are also possible.


Thank you for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you.
