We’re looking for a Community Mobiliser!

Embrace is an emerging national movement with an ambitious goal – to ensure every mother is supported from the start. This is achieved through inspiration, mobilisation and building meaningful connections for mothers.

Whilst the movement is big, our team is small and plays a vital role in keeping the movement members passionate and purposeful, and keeping the goal in sight. Currently incubated within the DG Murray Trust, Embrace seeks to hire a Community Mobiliser to work as part of this small team.

Our ideal Community Mobiliser:
You’re passionate about supporting motherhood in South Africa. You are curious and willing to listen to the voices of mothers. People and communities fascinate you. You’re willing to venture into new spaces to meet and connect with people. You’re energized by conversations and are able to spot potential ideas. You are respectful, supportive, inclusive and encouraging and people naturally gravitate toward you. You thrive when working in a team, but are also motivated to work alone. You have capacity for travel and are excited to meet with movement members across the country. You’re able to lead from the front and boldly share our vision for supported motherhood. [SM1] You’re able to make big ideas seem possible to different groups of people. You’re willing to support movement members to pilot their ideas, nurture shared dreams and you’re not afraid of ambitious goals. You’re able to make every member of the movement realise that they are a part of something much bigger than themselves.

Core skills and background:

  • We’re looking for a university graduate with experience in community mobilisation
  • Strong written and spoken communication skills
  • Strong leadership skills
  • Ability to communicate in more than one language advantageous

To apply please submit a motivation letter and CV (including the details of 3 referees) to cv@embrace.org.za by Wednesday 16 May 2018.
Please add the job title in the subject line of your email.

 [SM1]Great! Perhaps this might be an appropriate place to indicate that she would also need to support, foreground and celebrate movement members’ initiatives, to facilitate their connections to each other, and to stoke the flames of the movement in various corners of the country.
