Openhack, our subsidiary, is a social company and collaborative community where ideas and knowledge are exchanged and built upon, in order to solve pressing societal challenges through open source development. Through collaboration with both governmental and non-governmental organisations as well as private actors Openhack aims to provide a platform for digital volunteership through hackathons.

We are looking forward to welcoming a Head of Communication to our team of staff who will lead, coordinate and develop our internal- and external communications. Your work will encompass both long-term planning and development of communication plans and strategies, day-to-day execution of activities and communications, and development of internal processes for improved communication. You will work mainly with EWB-SWE but also spend some of your work time with Openhack, and thereby play a key role in the strategic decision to let the two organisations come closer to each other and increase both strategic and operational collaboration. You will work in close cooperation with the Secretary General of EWB-SWE, the CEO of Openhack, the Boards of the two organisations, as well as staff and volunteers spread across Sweden.
We are looking for a communicative team player who is able to work independently and strategically, who shares the values of EWB-SWE and Openhack, and who is interested in developing our organizations further. We believe that you have some experience from work with similar tasks, potentially from the non-profit or volunteer based sectors. You have good communication skills in Swedish and English.
The role as our Head of Communication is a full-time or nearly full-time position. Location is flexible, though we have small (yet) one-person offices in Stockholm, Falun and Gothenburg. The salary is according to agreement, and starting time is flexible.
