Project Co-Ordinator: Pedal Power Cinema Project

Hiring Organization:
The Great Apes Film Initiative

Date Posted:
2013-03-25

Position Description:
Television documentary programmes are one of the most powerful ways we have of communicating accurate information about many subjects that affect our lives. However key parts of the world cannot afford to purchase these programmes so millions of people have no understanding of the environmental challenges that face their communities, families and livelihoods.

GAFI has been distributing conservation films and creating screening programmes for the last 8 years in Africa and SE Asia, reaching over 300 million people to date. The films are shown to Presidents, Government Ministers, National Television viewers, Local Communities, Schools, Wildlife Management Centres, National Park Rangers and the Army. One challenge in delivering the screening programmes is the frequent lack of electricity in many regions where we work. Therefore GAFI now delivers many of its screening programmes via its hugely successful pedal power cinema. This has transformed education in Uganda, DRC and Sumatra so far and will reach 5 more countries by the end of 2013.

GAFI is seeking a Project Co-ordinator for both its international pedal power projects and the UK schools project which aims to link UK schools with Great Apes range states.

Qualifications/Experience:
The successful applicant will have proven knowledge of environmental issues in Africa and SE Asia, have strong organisational skills, have proven people skills, have a working knowledge of the UK schools curriculum, be able to write reports for donors and the GAFI website and be able to create a strategy for sustainable growth for the pedal power cinema project.

Application Deadline:
April 30th 2013
