Social Media Nonprofit Job

Some interesting jobs being posted on the Tactical Philanthropy Job Board recently. This one from from is seeking a Managing Editor for its forthcoming social action blog network, which will be launched in the summer of 2008.’s Managing Editor will lead an effort to hire and oversee a team of several dozen expert bloggers who will be writing about the most important issues facing our world – ranging from global warming to hunger to health care.

In addition to managing a team of part-time writers, responsibilities will include establishing relationships with other media outlets, interacting with the hundreds of nonprofits active on, identifying and helping to promote activist campaigns, and part-time blogging. The position is full-time and pay is competitive.

If you’re looking for a job with significant responsibility, excited about the thrill of working at a start-up, and passionate about using the internet to advance social change, this might be the perfect opportunity for you.

Applicants should have experience in the nonprofit/activist space as well with blogging or journalism. Otherwise, we encourage anyone to apply – regardless of age or location. We’re more interested in someone who can take this position and run with it than someone who fits a particular mold.
