Communications & Outreach Manager

 Bengaluru, Karnataka

Profile

The Education and Public Engagement Programme in the Nature Conservation Foundation (NCF) is seeking a Communications & Outreach Manager to lead a project on outreach about nature through birds.

The overall goal of the project is to spread awareness, enjoyment, and knowledge about birds and their conservation (and through this, nature as a whole) to the public at large. This will be done by facilitating interactions between those already involved in communication about birds; by motivating more people to get involved in this way; and by building bridges to existing online and print media and publishing houses. A special emphasis will be made towards communication in languages other than English. By communication we don't mean only through the written word, but in a variety of creative ways, possibly including art, song, storytelling, multimedia, and more.

The Communications Manager will be responsible for:

  • Creating an overall communications plan for the project
  • Facilitating interaction and training workshops (eg for artists, journalists, non-English writers)
  • Supervising interns/volunteers working towards communication about birds
  • Building links to existing media outlets
  • Liaising with individual and institutional partners
  • Coordinating the production of a variety of communications materials

Money

Rs 30,000 to 45,000 (gross pay) per month depending on qualification and experience. Women and under-represented groups are encouraged to apply.

Experience

1-5 yrs of experience in communication / outreach and with a passion for spreading the love of nature to others. Experience with communication in languages other than English, and in media other than the written word is welcome. A personal network of a large number of nature communicators would help.
