Have you ever wished you could work against trafficking but thought you didn’t have the right skill-set? Have you ever wondered how your talents could possibly be used to help a victim of exploitation?

In the West, we love to classify and categorize people and occupations, but this is often a barrier for people to engage in serving in a different context. For Freedom International wants to remove these misleading categorizations. Below are some of our current, and perhaps unorthodox, volunteer and staff positions. If you don’t see one that fits you but feel you have a unique way to contribute to our work, contact us and let us know!

Communications

  • Communications Strategist 
    •  We are looking for someone to help organize, create, and implement our communication strategies. This would include helping to create content and images for blog posts and helping to create an editorial calendar for content delivery through our blog, social media platforms, and Mailchimp general newsletter. This person would also help us develop and launch yearly fundraising campaigns.
      • This is a full-time or part-time volunteer position based anywhere.
  • Blogger/Writer
    • We are looking for someone who is passionate about meaningful communication, who is organized and can meet deadlines if needed, and who enjoys the task of educating and challenging people through the written word. This position is for someone who can inspire others by telling stories. Familiarity with WordPress and other blogging platforms is ideal.
      • This is a part-time volunteer position from anywhere you can sit and write, but it is preferably from Phuket, Thailand where you can see the stories as they unfold.

Finance

  • Donor Liaison
    • We are looking for someone who will help develop and implement our donor appreciation, follow-up, and communication strategies.

  • Grant Writer
