Media Mentor, Rooted in Trust Haiti – ReliefWeb
The Rooted in Trust project works to combat COVID-19 rumors and misinformation in Afghanistan, Lebanon, Iraq, Colombia, Brazil, Mali, Democratic Republic of Congo, Zimbabwe, Sudan, South Sudan, Haiti, Yemen and Madagascar. We work to create impact at the local level and inform approaches to rumor management at the global level. The project is supported by a Global Technical Advisory team made up of media, humanitarian, data science and information management experts.
In Phase 1 of the project, we collected more than 19 thousand rumors in 14 languages and supported more than 30 local trusted information providers. In this critical phase of the pandemic, we will build on these efforts to listen and respond to the information challenges faced by vulnerable groups in humanitarian contexts, encouraging open dialogue between citizens and scientists and stronger and more collaborative partnerships between information providers (such as local media) and humanitarian and health sources.
The Media Mentor will manage relationships between the project team and the local media. As the project’s health media specialist, the Media Mentor will help to better understand and respond to the needs of journalists during the pandemic in relation to training, information, and ensuring they are equipped to report on the scientific aspects of the pandemic and to combat misinformation.
This is a remote-based position. Preference will be given to candidates with demonstrable knowledge of the Haitian context. You must have work authorization in your current location that does not require sponsorship from Internews. Additionally, there are locations in which Internews is not able to support fully remote work.
Wherever possible, we work to try to find solutions for international hiring that work for both the company and the candidate. This means that some of the particulars around the offer for a role will be dependent on several factors, and that the benefits and salary structure that apply to a position will be based upon a candidate’s location and where the role is hired.
Note: Hiring is contingent upon receipt of funding.
Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, so interested candidates are encouraged to apply soon. This is a term position with an anticipated end date in December 2023.
