Kids in Need of Defense (KIND) is a global leader in the protection of unaccompanied refugee and migrant children.

Job Description


*Note: the following is an opportunity for volunteer, part-time, flexible work–with the possibility of compensation as we grow. Please DO NOT APPLY if you are only looking for paid employment. This is a work from home position.*


Are you at a point in your life where doing something challenging, meaningful, and fun is more of an urgent concern for you than compensation? Are you an experienced manager with a knack for creating and maintaining editorial processes? Are the words “collaboration” and “team player” part of your natural lexicon? The nonprofit news organization WhoWhatWhy is looking for an Editorial Manager to set up, organize, and improve editorial production processes.


Check out WhoWhatWhy.org. You’ll quickly see that we’re a unique news organization: not left wing, not right wing, and not consensus-seeking. We just want the truth — whatever it is.


We have thought long and hard about what limits journalism’s ability to effect positive change in the public interest, and we see two factors that dominate the landscape: (1) Commercial entities overly concerned with meeting financial goals and filling “eyeball” quotas — while keeping up with the rest of the pack, thereby ensuring a sameness and superficiality to the coverage (2) Ideologically driven outfits that cater to a specific mindset and dare not reveal things that would upset their readers — or force them to reconsider their values.


At WhoWhatWhy, we go at each story with an open mind, boundless curiosity, and a willingness to dig deep and ask hard questions — even when we’re told not to. Nothing is going to stand in our way when it comes to discovering what is going on beneath the surface, and why. Call it naive to believe such fearlessness possible, but we think it’s the essence of true journalism.


And because we’re straight to the point, we make clear that we’re looking for volunteers — skilled volunteers. Yes, we’re a nonprofit that wasn’t funded by a zillionaire. Yes, yes we decline to accept corporate ads. Yes, we have a tiny budget right now and simply don't have the ability to pay many people very much.


But we promise you this: If you do an excellent job, over time we’ll find a way to compensate you as we’re able. And in the meantime, you won’t be just another member of the team. We guarantee that your work will be meaningful, and you’ll be in the company of other fun, idealistic, motivated, decent people.


As you will find out (if you didn’t know already) it feels pretty good to do the right thing. Bonus: an impressive array of readers — including many who are distinguished in their own fields; educators, scientists, thought leaders of all kinds -- will see the stories you touch.


Interested? Qualified? Read on for details. And if you think you’re a good fit, tell us.


Responsibilities



  • Manage the editorial team to ensure news production happens on time, accurately, and to the best of our editorial ability

  • Analyze our current editorial processes, identify weaknesses, and build systems to help the newsroom run more smoothly

  • Define complicated tasks, set deadlines, and delegate work while keeping our "big picture" in mind

  • Collaborate with the Marketing/Branding, Creative, and Operations departments on consistent messaging throughout the organization


Requirements



  • Bachelor’s Degree or higher

  • Proven experience in management and operation of complex editorial structures and processes

  • The ability to define and delegate tasks, and motivate others

  • Strong organizational and communication skills

  • The ability to self-direct and manage others working remotely

  • The patience to monitor multiple individuals, projects, and processes


Perks



  • Channel your passion in a stimulating environment

  • Learn the nuts and bolts of nonprofit operations in an up-and-coming organization

  • Develop new skills and gain valuable experience that can enhance your professional trajectory

  • Do amazing work on a flexible, part-time basis

  • Have fun while you make a difference


Expectations


You will work remotely and on your own schedule. We also ask for a minimum commitment of 10-15 hours a week (Though doing more is not discouraged!). Because our staff is spread throughout the world, we communicate mostly through Slack and email, and team members are requested to be highly responsive in a timely manner.


Although this posting is listed for Houston, our team works from any and all locations, including:



  • New York City, New York

  • Chicago, Illinois

  • Los Angeles, California

  • Phoenix, Arizona

  • Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


And many more! Please apply regardless of location.

We will not review applications that appear to be mass submissions. To apply, send your resume and a customized cover letter explaining why you're a good fit for this position. You should confirm your understanding that this is, initially, a volunteer position. Thanks!

Job Description


HR Business Partner — Marketing (Volunteer)


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


Are you an experienced Human Resources Business Partner/Professional who is passionate about making a difference? Are you excited about the opportunity to work with smart and talented individuals committed to producing great content in the public interest? Can you commit a minimum of 10 hours a week, working remotely on your own schedule with our far-flung, diverse team? 


Check out WhoWhatWhy.org. You’ll quickly see that, besides being a nonprofit news organization, we’re a credible solution to the raging debate over whether the news is “fake” or not,” with agenda-free research and publishing bracingly fresh analysis. Not left-wing, not right-wing, not consensus-seeking. We just want the truth — whatever it is. 


We have thought long and hard about what limits journalism’s ability to effect positive change in the public interest, and we see two factors that dominate the landscape: (1) Commercial entities overly concerned with meeting financial goals and filling “eyeball” quotas — while not straying from the rest of the pack, thereby ensuring a sameness and superficiality to the coverage. (2) Ideologically driven outfits catering to a specific mindset and not daring to reveal things that would upset their readers — or force them to reconsider their values.


At WhoWhatWhy, we go at each story with an open mind, boundless curiosity, and a willingness to dig deep and ask hard questions — even when we’re told not to. Nothing is going to stand in our way when it comes to discovering what is going on beneath the surface, and why. Call it naive to believe such fearlessness possible, but we think it’s the essence of true journalism. 


And because we’re straight to the point, we make clear that we’re looking for volunteers — skilled volunteers. Yes, we’re a nonprofit that wasn’t funded by a zillionaire. Yes, we decline to accept corporate ads. Because of that, we look for volunteers —  with the possibility, down the road, of compensation based on proven results.


However, we do have big ambitions, which is why we’re seeking an experienced Human Resources professional to work closely with our creative leadership to shape strategy and develop and execute creative plans. 


Responsibilities



  • Partner with Marketing and Public Relations department leadership to develop the talent strategy needed to support our tremendous growth and build a collaborative work environment. Function as a consultant to key leaders, engage in strategic planning meetings to translate business needs into HR plans.

  • Hire and lead a team of recruiters by providing support in data tracking, reporting and interviewing

  • Assist in skill assessment and development

  • Coordinate the development and execution of HR communication strategy

  • Assist in planning, developing, writing, and maintaining procedural documents, instructions, and guides for new or modified HR processes.


 


Qualifications



  • Bachelor's degree in a related field and 3+ years of HR experience, including experience in successfully managing various projects.

  • Previous experience in HR generalist/recruitment for marketing and/or creative industries, preferred.

  • Recruitment experience with an emphasis on developing a recruitment strategy in identifying and hiring a diverse group of talented individuals.

  • Ability to grasp and project the WhoWhatWhy brand, its values, and its distinct vision in the HR policies and processes.

  • Ability to take initiative and build strong relationships.

  • Ability to establish trust and confidence by demonstrating a high level of credibility and integrity.

  • Exceptional communication skills, time management, and attention to detail are key attributes in this role

  • PHR/SHRM-CP certification preferred but not required


 


Perks



  • Channel your passion in a stimulating environment

  • Learn the nuts and bolts of nonprofit operations in an up-and-coming organization

  • Develop new skills and gain valuable experience that can enhance your professional trajectory

  • Do amazing work on a flexible, part-time basis

  • Have fun while you make a difference.

  • Expectations


 


You will work remotely and on your own schedule, and we ask for a minimum commitment of 6 months for at least 10-15 hours a week. Because our staff is spread throughout the world, we rely mostly on a combination of Slack, email, and conference calls, and expect everyone to be highly responsive in a timely manner.


If you possess a high level of self-motivation, and work well independently - but also have strong collaboration skills and enjoy the opportunity to partner with like-minded individuals, and can commit quality time per week on a regular basis to help achieve team goals, we'd like to hear from you.


To Apply


We will not review applications that appear to be mass submissions. To apply, send your resume and a customized cover letter explaining why you're a good fit for this position. If there is no option to attach a cover letter, please send a cover letter to hr@whowhatwhy.org. You should confirm your understanding that this is, initially, a volunteer position. Thanks!
