Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is a private and independent international medical aid organisation. Diversity, open mindedness and mutual respect are of particular importance in our organisation. MSF provides medical aid in more than 70 countries worldwide. The headquarters of the German section of MSF - Ärzte ohne Grenzen e.V. is in Berlin. In the headquarters, over 200 employees work in the fundraising, media and public relations, finance and administration, human resources and project departments.
We are looking for an experienced leader & manager, with energy and a drive. The Head of Communications and Engagement will master this challenge with proven strong management skills and change competencies within a grown team, sharing the leadership of the department. A suitable candidate disposes of an empowering management approach and will lead the teams with enthusiasm for our organization, its mission, its supporters, and will have the necessary drive for continuous change and growth on multiple levels. Our mission is to deliver humanitarian medical assistance and to bear witness, speaking about the plight of our patients and the communities we work with. We aim to establish and preserve a strong and compelling identity and image of our organization within the German speaking audiences with a special focus on politicians, donors and (potential) staff. To structure ourselves in accordance with today’s complex and interconnected communication and marketing landscape, we are currently adapting our departmental structure in a participative process towards a corporate newsroom.
As an international humanitarian organization, we see equity, diversity and inclusion as an important enrichment for our society. Therefore, we especially invite people who do not define themselves as part of the majority society to apply for the position. If you are ready for this and have the ability to not only approach your own tasks with drive, but at the same time to question and reshape them, we very much look forward to receiving your application.
Please send your complete written application in German incl. the names of two persons we can contact after a first round of interview for references until 9th of May 2021.
