Summary

Ekō (formerly SumOfUs) is looking for Digital Campaign Support Contractors to help us grow our income and win campaigns against corporate power. 

Impact you'll create: Motivate and involve our members in driving action for global economic justice.

This position reports to our Fundraising team and operates at the intersection of campaigning and fundraising. The individual(s) in this role will set up fundraisers and petitions in English, as well as in either German or French, or all three languages! They will work in Action Kit to establish, proofread, and approve digital mailings. While the team is transitioning to Action Network in the coming months, prior experience with these platforms is beneficial but not mandatory, as training will be provided.

The contract can be undertaken by anyone living between GMT -6 hours (Central Americas) and GMT +2 hours (Western Europe / East Africa). 

Please be aware that this is a temporary contracted position with a fixed term, not a salaried core staff role. If you have any questions on what this means, please reach out via jobs@eko.org prior to application. 

A bit about us

Ekō is a global movement of consumers, investors, and workers standing together to hold corporations accountable for their actions and forge a new and sustainable path for our global economy.
