Background: The Warning Project is a partnership of leading international practitioners, academics and consultants committed to helping organizations build capacity to better communicate during emergencies or other high risk events.

Opportunity: We are looking for someone willing and able to help us develop and maintain an organizational mailing list and to help organize, layout and distribute a quarterly newsletter.

Requirements: Demands for support would fluctuate through the year. We haven’t done this before, frankly, so we are not certain on how much time would be required – so we would negotiate and agree as per task. The ideal candidate would be a strong communicator, have skills in database management and document layout and also have an interest in the field of emergency risk communication.
