Exciting opportunity for a volunteer social media specialist!

Are you someone who is:

  • Creative and able to get your head around issues relating to gender equality and education for women in Burma, but translate them to consumer friendly language primarily for Facebook with a secondary emphasis on Twitter and LinkedIn
  • Interested in strategy – eg. should more time be invested into Twitter vs Facebook / should we be writing blog posts instead etc..
  • Self directed – able to set their own targets and work toward them and be able to advise the team on messaging/good ways to get information across
  • Handy with creating visually appealing posts and reading relevant gender related topics and news stories
  • Keen to continue to build the community – and look at ways social media could drive fundraising efforts
  • Happy to keep an eye on news in Myanmar and share relevant content with the community on behalf of We women foundation

If so, we’d love to hear from you!


  • You can be based anywhere in the world as this can be entirely remote
  • Alternatively, we welcome applicants who are based in Yangon who would like to work from the We women headquarters there


  • The ideal is someone that could spend up to 3 hours a week creating posts/re-packaging content for We women for use on Facebook/Twitter and LinkedIn
  • Help write a newsletter every quarter and get that issued to supporters and followers
  • Once a year, assist to ideate and create campaign materials to support the campaign manager in our big fundraising drive [usually this is October or December] – this will increase your time commitment for a month or so – for example this year I wrote the script, did the campaign plan, wrote articles etc…
  • Attend a team meeting approximately every 1.5 months via skype/google hang outs

If this sounds like you, please send a brief outline of why you would like to do the role, your recent experience particularly in relation to managing social media/creating content and a short CV to sarahblakers@gmail.com and Ursula@wewomenfoundation.org
