IFIwatch.tv and Bretton Woods Project website support (Volunteer 2-3 days)
Recruitment||14 December 2009|
The Bretton Woods Project is seeking a volunteer to offer technical support and bring in fresh ideas to develop the media aggregation and sharing functions of two websites that turn a critical eye towards the actions of international financial institutions: IFIWatch.TV and rethinkingfinance.org. Although the position is unpaid, volunteers will be reimbursed for lunch and travel expenses, and it may lead to paid work later.
The Bretton Woods Project works with civil society organisations and activists worldwide to help them press for changes in the World Bank and IMF. It bridges groups working in development, environment and human rights.
IFIWatch.TV offers windows on the environment, development, on economic justice, financial architecture (reform) and public investment - documentaries, TV shows, animations, meeting and protest reports, feature films, music videos, expert analysis and more - plus news, blogs and detailed documents.
RethinkingFinance.org turns a critical eye towards the reforms proposed by policy makers during the current global financial crisis. The website, which is updated by several international civil society organisations and individuals, puts forward alternative ideas and analyses, provides information about and comments on latest events, and gives an overview of civil society and other peoples' activities.
We are looking for an enthusiastic volunteer to commit 2-3 days a week to assist with technical development and usability of the websites; share administrative duties; and to help develop proposals for future funding. At present both websites use Drupal.
Location: London, UK; Much of the work can be done from home
Deadline: 5 pm local time Monday 18 January 2010
Candidates without the right to work in the UK will not be considered.
Please send your current two page CV plus a covering letter. This letter should, in 1 page or less, indicate where you saw the vacancy and how you meet the requirements set out in the job description and person specification.
Send applications by e-mail only to: email@example.com, marked "Application: BWP web support" in the subject line.
