CASID' Social Media Coordinator Opportunity

The ) is a national, bilingual, interdisciplinary and pluralistic association devoted to the promotion of new knowledge in the broad field of international development. CASID is a membership-based organization.

To accomplish its mission to promote and support international development studies in Canada and abroad, CASID maintains a listserv and a blog to enhance communication and the sharing of information among interested and engaged IDS people worldwide.  CASID organizes one annual conference and sponsors five regional events per year.  The ambition of both the annual conference and the regional events is to bring together people working and studying in the broad field of international development to share opinions, experiences and research findings, to enhance networking and communication in the IDS community, and to facilitate the emergence of new development researchers and practitioners through active interaction and cooperation with Development Studies and related programs in Canadian universities and colleges. CASID also oversees the publication of two periodicals, the Canadian Journal of Development Studies (CJDS) and the Development Forum.

Purpose

CASID is recruiting a graduate student, recent graduate or early/new career member to provide social media support for the organization. CASID currently has limited activity on social media and is looking to enhance its online presence to better connect with members and the development community. This includes promoting CASID initiatives, news and events, including content from the Canadian Journal of Development Studies and other related material.

Scope

  • Approximately 3 hour per week commitment
  • Day-to-day management of CASID Twitter and Facebook accounts
  • Monthly reporting of basic analytics on social media engagement
  • Staying up to date with multi-sector Canadian and global international development communities of research and practice
