  • You know Instagram, Facebook and Twitter inside out.

About Choose Love / Help Refugees

We are now one of the largest providers of grassroots humanitarian aid in Europe, currently supporting over 120 projects across Europe, the Middle East and US-Mexican border. Each of these projects is powered by ordinary people who are stepping up where governments are failing to provide even the most basic services. From those keeping rescue boats afloat, to the volunteers distributing tents and hot food, to the brave souls working under the desert sun to place water along the Mexican border.

 

To apply 

We are most interested in examples of your previous work that display the skills outlined above. Please submit links, or a Dropbox or Google Drive folder with at least four pieces of content that you have created in your work or personal life, along with your CV and a covering statement of no more than 200 words to communications@helprefugees.org. Deadline: 9am Wednesday 21st October. 

 

Help Refugees is against discrimination of any kind. We recognise that unconscious bias and internalised prejudice bleed into workplace practices, and so actively work to educate our staff and leadership team in allyship and non-discriminatory practice. Our success as an organisation requires us to live our principles, bringing equity and diversity of lived experience into our decision-making and creative processes. Please do not feel you will be disadvantaged  in the selection process on the basis of race, colour, religion, gender, age, sexuality or any other protected characteristic. If you need reasonable adjustments, please let us know in confidence.

 

We are committed to making our roles and culture inclusive. We can make reasonable adjustments throughout the application process and on the job. If you have particular accessibility needs, please get in touch and let us know any requirements you may have.
