Régions concernées par cette opportunité: Tunis

Today, the root causes of the Tunisian revolution (Employment, socioeconomic fairness and prosperity) are still relevant, in fact regional differences and unemployment especially among the youth have worsened. Economic reforms are badly needed, however there is a huge vacuum. This think tank will play an instrumental role by contributing to unlocking Tunisia’s economic growth potential, and strengthening its democratic institutions in the public and private sectors and civil society. It aims to foster fair and sustainable economic and social development.

The MEF project #jobsfortunisia – Putting economy in the center of national dialogue to serve democracy will tackle this gap by putting – as its names suggest – economy in the center of a large public debate. The project is dedicated to the renewal of Tunisian socio-economical politics, prosperity, and dialog – in a Digital Age adapted manner. The success of this initiative will depend on attracting high profile candidates and building a team driven by a passion for Tunisia, aspiring for excellence and motivated by social responsibility to make a difference.

We are seeking to hire a Communication & Policy Outreach Officer who will develop and lead the implementation of the MEF’s communication and policy outreach strategy. The incumbent shall play a pro-active and central role in the development and management of the MEF’s communications activities, including corporate communications, research communications and public affairs.

More about MEF and its #jobsfortunisia project:

We carry out our mission as a non-profit civic enterprise: think tank, new social media laboratory, public forum, and media platform. Our hallmarks are big ideas, impartial analysis, pragmatic policy solutions, technological innovation, next generation politics, and creative engagement with broad audiences.

MEF’s staff, fellows and board believe in the possibility of transformative change. For thousands of years Tunisia has repeatedly managed to reinvent its society, economy, and political system in the face of sweeping changes at home and abroad, while still holding to the promise of a an open, modern society. We believe that through the power of people, ideas, technology, and participatory democracy, we can and must renew ourselves again.

We aim to nurture a new generation of public intellectuals – scholars, policy experts, and journalists who could address major social, economic, and political challenges in ways that would engage the public at large — and to provide a set of blueprints for Tunisian renewal in an era of globalization and digitization. The initial challenge, which continues today, is to find the minds and foster the debates needed to guide Tunisia into this new era of profound, exhilarating, but often threatening change.

MEF’s #jobfortunisia project will provide a platform that enables individuals and groups working on solutions to drive different stages of change, from inspiration to implementation. The project will concentrate on the following categories:

  • Identify and nurture new and diverse thinkers, researchers and writers; helping them to join the public conversation and debate.
  • Develop and implement ideas and policies to address socio-economic problems at the local, “governorate”, national and international levels.
  • Bridge the worlds of technology, policy, politics and academia, both by creating, testing and piloting new communication and advocacy technologies and integrating existing channels into policy solutions.
  • Use media/social media and live events to share ideas and engage audiences in Tunis and across the country around shared challenges and solutions.
