Change.org offers the world's most powerful organizing tools to every potential citizen-activist and NGO. Change.org currently empowers millions of people around the world start, join and win campaigns for social change on the issues they care about in their community, city, or country. We are growing by over 2 million new members a month and are building a core team to launch in the Arab World.
The Campaigns Director will lead our campaigning efforts in the Arab World - crafting and executing rapid-response campaigns and helping millions of activists start and successfully run their own local campaigns for positive social change.
You will be responsible for spotting breakthrough campaigns on the Change.org platform with a significant chance of achieving significant social change, ensuring they are built on a strong theory of change, and then using whatever strategies and tactics are necessary to win.
The Campaigns Director will:
Design and execute rapid-response social change advocacy campaigns with the potential for explosive growth and swift victories.
Collaborate with a global team of organisers to identify opportunities for creating effective grassroots campaigns that win measurable social change.
Identify promising grassroots campaigns started by activists across the Arab World, and help these campaigns win by providing strategic advice, conducting media outreach, and promoting them across the web, and to our members via email.
Establish and maintain deep partnerships with leading NGOs - local, national, regional, and global in scope - and help them run successful campaigns on Change.org.
Build and manage a team of organisers and campaigners as Change.org grows in the Arab World.

A strong interest in aiding local, member-driven online organising campaigns and developing member capacity for ever larger campaigns.
A history of online public mobilisation for grassroots social change.
A strong grasp of politics, political processes, current social justice, economic, and environmental issues within the Arab World and globally.
