Ad Writer - HR (Volunteer)

Company: WhoWhatWhy
Location: Mountain View
Posted on: November 16, 2021

Job Description:

Note: The following is an opportunity for flexible, part-time, volunteer work. Please DO NOT APPLY if you are only looking for paid employment. All positions are remote/ work-from-home.

Are you an experienced Ad Writer who is passionate about making a difference? Would you find it exciting to work with smart and talented individuals committed to producing great journalism in the public interest? Can you commit (a minimum of) 10 hours per week to our mission, working remotely on your own schedule with our far-flung, diverse team?

We are seeking an experienced job description language specialist to help our organization recruit the most talented skilled volunteers. Ideal candidates will have high-level talent development skills and strong organizational skills to manage the process and workflow. The position will blend copywriting, research, and talent acquisition knowledge into a single role on a dedicated Ad Writing Team. The Ad Team would work directly with Talent Acquisition and Hiring Managers to build the perfect ads.

WhoWhatWhy is a nonpartisan, agenda-free news organization. Not left-wing, not right-wing, not consensus-seeking. We report the truth, whatever it is. We approach each story with an open mind, boundless curiosity, and a willingness to dig deep beneath the surface - and don't back away in the face of pressure from powerful institutions and groupthink.

We are a nonprofit. We are not funded by a zillionaire. We do not accept corporate ads. As such, we are only currently able to pay a small core team, as well as experienced professional freelancers - and rely primarily on skilled volunteers to fill out our growing organizational infrastructure.

Age does not matter. We have among us young students, vibrant retirees, and everything in between, from all walks of life.

You will be expected to attend your department's recurring meetings. Beyond this, you will work on your own schedule. We ask for a minimum commitment of 6 months for at least 10 hours a week.
