Lushomo helps partner organisations do good by communicating complex information effectively. We work mainly with United Nations clients and other international organisations in the areas of health, environment, education and economic development.
We are mission driven and only take on work that has a positive social impact. Lushomo is growing steadily, and together we are becoming leaders in information design and research communication. We are looking for one or more additions for our research, communications and project management team.
Job Title: Research and communications manager
Location: South Africa
The right person(s) will have a blend of creativity and technical know-how, be organised, quick to learn and work well under pressure within a small team.
Here’s what you would get out of it:
This position will involve digesting and summarising technical content, helping to generate creative and effective solutions, communicating our ideas to designers and developers, and steering projects through to completion. A large component of the work is conceptualising visual products, such as data visualisations, infographics, animations etc. It is important that you have an interest in design and will enjoy developing comms products in an iterative, unpredictable process. You should also be willing to help out generally wherever needed; we’re a small team so we all wear multiple hats.
We often work under pressure to meet tough deadlines and within tight budgets but the work is varied and each day is different. We are always pushing the boundaries to learn new technical skills (such as interactive data design, UX/UI, augmented reality etc.) and keep our products fresh and relevant in a fast-changing communications landscape. Visit our website, Lushomo.net for lots of examples of the type of work we do.
