Social Media & Community Intern or Volunteer

Are you a social media whizz? Do you enjoy writing daily posts for a global audience? Then this might be the perfect placement for you! We are looking for a student (intern) or a recent graduate, who wants to gain experience as a volunteer. You will be working at a dynamic NGO that makes an impact on the lives of people who had to flee their homes. 

We believe that every human being forced from their home has the right to a dignified reception. We ensure refugee environments are safe, healing, and enabling, using our ‘Camp to CampUs’ approach. With your social media skills, you would be of great value to our missions in Greece, Poland, Lebanon and the Netherlands. 

The Movement 

Movement On The Ground was founded by a group of independent entrepreneurs and creatives who were touched by the European refugee crisis in 2015. Since then, MOTG has evolved into a team that is determined to transform the humanitarian field. Nothing is impossible for us: this is how we act, how we think and how we work. We are always looking into ways to build bridges between all the stakeholders involved. We have a clear vision: to have a positive impact on the lives of people on the move. We developed our own ‘Camp to CampUs’ philosophy and we are ready to spread this philosophy across the globe.

For interns, this position will be for 2/3 days a week and for volunteers, we can discuss the possibilities.
