Position description

Just Vision is seeking a Program and Outreach Manager (POM) to develop and implement its strategy to engage key US-based audiences, from thought leaders and policymakers to faith leaders, students, educators, activists and beyond. In addition to developing and maintaining relationships of trust with key stakeholders, the POM will be responsible for designing meaningful and impactful programs using Just Vision’s resources and media as anchors, including our documentaries, journalism and educational and organizing tools. Additionally, the POM will have the ability to curate unique programs – whether it be delegations, briefings, webinars or discussions – that are both proactive and opportunistic; tailored to the needs of specific audiences; and that align with the relationships and expertise we have developed over the last 20 years. This work will be aligned with our overarching goals and mission, integrated with our communications efforts in our broader public engagement strategy, and supported by our Public Engagement Associate.

Candidates must have excellent written and verbal communication skills; strong organizational and problem-solving skills; experience as a people manager; and a passion for working on social change efforts, storytelling, journalism and/or the Israeli-Palestinian context. They will report to the Chief of Staff and be part of a fast-paced and collaborative environment as an integral member of a nimble, thoughtful and high-performance team.
