Volunteer Marketing Associate

*Note: the following is an opportunity for volunteer, flexible, part-time work. Please DO NOT APPLY if you are only looking for paid employment.*

Are you looking for a role in marketing, but know you don't want to join just any old agency? Are you interested in combining your interest in marketing with your enthusiasm for news? The nonprofit news organization WhoWhatWhy is looking to build a team of marketing associates to assist our marketing director in all aspects of the department. Associates will be responsible for helping the director strategize and implement campaigns for our various initiatives and projects. 

Who We Are

We are a remarkable news organization and community that is making a difference, setting a new standard, and innovating on every front.

You will work remotely and on your own schedule, though we require a minimum commitment of 5-8 hours a week. Ideally, we'd have ten people on the team. Because our staff is spread throughout the world, we communicate mostly through email.  All staff are required to respond to emails on a daily basis.

To Apply

Please send us a resume and carefully reasoned, customized cover letter that outlines your experience and skillset, and shows that you have studied what we do at WhoWhatWhy. Our mission must resonate deeply with you. We will not review applications that appear to be mass submissions.
