Humanitarian Content and Social Media Advisor

Internews

About the organization

Signpost is a digitally enabled responsive information service that supports and empowers populations in crisis, including asylum seekers, migrants, and people who have experienced violence. Our program, a project of Internews, equips people with information to understand their options so that they can make informed decisions about how to stay safe, get urgent care for acute problems, exercise their rights, and access services. It was developed by the International Rescue Committee (IRC) and Mercy Corps in 2015 to address asylum seekers' and migrants' pressing need for reliable information upon arrival to Greece, and is now active in 12 countries on 5 continents.

It meets communities on the digital platforms they already use and aims to deliver information that is contextualized to their specific needs and speaks to their lived realities.
