You will be a good communicator with excellent written and verbal skills; and able to demonstrate a strategic mindset. We need someone who can think inside and outside the box to consider who might benefit from watching one of our films; and with the motivation and persuasive skills to tell them about it. The films that you will focus on include: a documentary focusing on the dynamic female leaders of the pro-choice campaign in Ireland as they attempt to legalise abortion; and a film about Franco Stevens, the founder of the best-selling lesbian magazine, Curve. A demonstrable interest in these topics is a must, as is a vision for how to attract a younger audience (18 to 24yrs) to watch them and share with their networks.
