  • Create engaging social media content to further grow the Institute’s Facebook and Twitter accounts;
  • Help with certain administrative tasks, specifically with contact management and helping update the Institute’s website.

  • Native or native-level English required. Other EU languages are a plus. Superior written and verbal communications skills;
  • Fluency in key AJC issues including combating antisemitism and extremism, promoting deeper EU-Israel relations, and enhancing the transatlantic partnership;
  • Ability to work independently, showing initiative and creativity in vision and outreach, and outstanding organizational skills with an eye for details;
  • Capacity to speak with a non-partisan voice, echoing AJC’s thoughtful approach;
  • A Master’s degree is preferred;
  • A demonstrated commitment to the highest ethical standards and values consistent with those of AJC.
