We're hiring!

10 Dec 2018

We are recruiting a Development Education Officer to join our team.

The role is a 4 day per week contract from January - end May 2019 (with possibility of extension). The salary scale for this role is €30,038 – 35,163 pro rata. We are open to job-sharing possibilities for this role. Many of the activities associated with this role take place during the evenings and some at weekends so this role could fit well around other commitments. We are keen to be as flexible as possible to support working environments that suit candidates' needs.

The Development Education Officer will take the lead in the planning and delivery of two Financial Justice Ireland projects: a WorldWise Schools (WWGS) funded project and an Irish Aid funded project that will target adult learners, university students and pre-service teachers. The WWGS project includes working with secondary school teachers to support the development of a Junior Certificate Business Studies resource and the delivery of continued professional development workshops with secondary school teachers on existing Politics and Society and Leaving Certificate Geography resources.

The Irish Aid project will be based on delivering and adapting existing Financial Justice Ireland training materials to diverse groups of adult learners, engaging them on global financial inequality with a focus on how to critically engage and take action. The post will report to, and work closely with, the Director.

The deadline for applications is Friday 4th January.

Interviews will take place on a rolling basis so early applications are encouraged.
