Communications and Media Manager

Job Title: Communications and Media Manager

Reporting to: Director, UK and EU

Location: London

Job Details

The Committee for Freedom in Hong Kong Foundation (CFHK Foundation) presses for political and economic consequences for China’s failure to keep its promises to respect Hong Kong’s freedoms; support the rule of law, freedom of expression, and the release of political prisoners. Hong Kong’s fate is linked to the preservation of freedom, democracy, and international law in the region and around the world.

Our focus areas are political prisoners, press freedom, promoting adherence to the rule of law in a free and open environment, and highlighting the competition between authoritarian and democratic values. Hong Kong is important in its own right and in the context of relations between China and the United States, the United Kingdom, Asia, and the European Union.

Our organization needs a dynamic self-starter with a proven record of communications work. An ability to multi-task and to get stuck in to various projects and other demands in a small NGO. Familiarity with Hong Kong and Chinese political issues is a major advantage. Familiarity with the human rights community, management experience and digital skills are also desirable.

This is a role for someone who can bring experience, connections and networks, to help elevate the work of the CFHK Foundation across the UK, US and EU. This is a great role for someone with communications experience who is looking to take their expertise to the next level, to gain people management skills and to elevate their own professional experience and development.
