We’re looking for a dynamic person to join our team in Paris as Community Program & Content Manager!
We’re specifically looking for either a native English speaker or someone with a similar level for this cross-functional role that combines project management, communities, and communication!
For the last nine months, makesense has been working with Facebook to create and operate a program called Community Leadership Circles to train community leaders around the world. Each participant already runs a huge-scale Facebook group and has been selected by Facebook to join a global community of other admins. Each person is tasked with starting a local chapter in their city to bring together local admins with the goal of connecting people offline. As the program grows, we’re looking to recruit a new team member to help create and run this program!
As this program requires strong communication skills (creating content, facilitating calls, etc), our goal is to have part of your time go towards applying these skills towards other projects at makesense to help improve our global communication. Namely, this would include copywriting, editing, translating, and other support with content.
Concretely, your role would include:
(1) Project management of the Community Leadership Circles Program, including:
- Community management (keeping the community of participants engaged)
- Facilitating group calls
- Creating content
- Coordination internally and externally of other people and resources involved
(2) Copywriting and editing for makesense in general:
- Editing documents
- Creating content
- Occasional translation (French -> English)
