The Arena Kenya is looking for a Marketing and Communications coordinator for The A-Team!
The A-Team brings the vision of The Arena to life. The Arena is a platform for young people to come together to share their individual experiences, find support, motivation, inspiration and guidance. This is a space where we help each other make the right choices earlier in life and be in a better position to take on our dreams with a difference. Joining the A-Team gives you the chance to shape the initiatives of the organization.
Our main initiative is 'My Nairobi'. My Nairobi is a quarterly forum for young people to win funding for their community-changing ideas. We recently won 2nd place in a business start-up competition for this initiative!
Our Outreach Coordinator is responsible for managing and organizing local outreach. Local outreach is about building networks with student societies, universities and other organisations to raise awareness about 'My Nairobi'. The Outreach Coordinator also works closely with the Marketing and Communications Coordinator to handle publicity.
Please note that this role is not a full-time commitment. This means that it can be done alongside school, university and/or a job. Due to the fact that this role is event-based and thus flexible to some extent, please anticipate that there are periods that will be more and less busy than others. This will be discussed further during training for successful applicants.
These roles are on a voluntary basis so are not monetarily rewarded. They start from January 2016 to December 2016. After this, the roles will be reviewed and team members can make a decision on whether to continue as part of the team. There will be two training sessions- the first one takes place on Saturday 19th December 2015 and the second one takes place between Monday 4th January 2016- Friday 8th January 2016. We're not necessarily looking for years of experience. We want someone who is a strong networker, good at building relations and has people skills.
In your application, show us any evidence of the above skill(s). This could be acquired through school, university, work or any other activity.
Don't be afraid to show off. Tell us why you deserve this role!
