Are you a brilliant and experienced community manager, people-motivator, public-interest advocate, while being a diplomat, knowledgeable and showing strong interest in policy related to the internet, telecommunications and information society?
If so, we are looking for just such a person to co-ordinate our activities. Civil Society Information Society Advisory Council (CSISAC) is an international alliance of privacy, digital rights, consumer organisations and academia. Its main purpose is to contribute constructively to the policy work of the OECD Committee that works on everything related to the information society. The job of the liaison person is to be the contact point between the members and the relevant OECD committees and working parties, co-ordinate, inspire, engage and organise the members, as well as represent the alliance effectively and carry out essential administrative duties. The position is part-time, for 2.5 days per week, though distributed unevenly during the year. It is on a contract/freelance basis and you can be based in Europe, ideally within easy distance of the OECD headquarters in Paris, but we will consider skilled candidates who are further afield. Further details can be found in the full job description (pdf), and further information about CSISAC can be found on www.csisac.org.
Please apply in writing, enclosing a CV with at least one reference who may be contacted and a cover letter of no more than one page, explaining how you meet the qualifications and skills outlined in the job description. Deadline for applications is 31 December 2011. Apply by email to Meryem Marzouki (EDRI representative, CSISAC Steering Committee member: meryem[at]marzouki[dot]info). Shortlisted candidates will be provided with specific information on salary during their interview.
