Position description

Global Citizen is a movement of engaged citizens who are using their collective voice to end extreme poverty by 2030. On our platform, Global Citizens learn about the systemic causes of extreme poverty, take action on those issues, and earn rewards for their actions as part of a global community committed to lasting change.

One of the key ways we can grow that movement is through the editorial content on and its accompanying channels: stories, videos, and social media that bring the important human rights issues of the world to readers where they are. This is journalism with a purpose — content creation to help make the world a better place for all.

So far, 24.8 million actions have been taken by Global Citizens, leading to $48.4 billion commitments being made by world leaders, which has affected 880 million lives to date.
