Vacancy: Co-Lead Communications (d/f/m)

One open position

Because a "New Europe" needs cooperation, we make sure that everyone interested in the Volt movement finds their place and that the strengths of all Volters are brought to bear in an ideal way. To this end, we establish sustainable structures and provide guidance. We promote local and online communities and offer knowledge management at all levels of our movement.

Since Volt sees itself as a digitally-fit party in the age of new media, the Communications Team is one of the most important pillars at Volt. We address questions such as "How do we ensure that all members up to date with internal workings and feel informed with Volt?", "How do we establish effective external communication?", and "How do we handle a public relations crisis?".

Our team is currently strategically reorganising itself and is looking for reinforcement in various areas - feel free to take a look at our other vacancies!
