Help to drive the digital strategy of the IOC
We are a dynamic, informal and multicultural team of specialists so far from 13 different countries with a range of skills from data, statistics, and engineering to business communications and project management. We highly value diversity of background and perspective and are striving for a gender balanced team. We work in close collaboration with colleagues who are experts in areas such as editorial, marketing, commercial, product and technical delivery. Our working language is English and our preferred communication tool is Slack. Sharing knowledge, contrasting opinions and challenging each other is highly encouraged.
Skills and requirements
As the coordinator of our extensive work programme, first and foremost you should be a highly organized individual who naturally keeps track of many things at once.
While most of the team has their heads down on their projects, and the management team are busy with the wider picture, often it will be you who spots the opportunities or emerging issues that we need to focus on next. This position may suit someone who has existing experience as a team member in data or other digital projects and is looking for a stepping stone into project management.
If you are the sort of person for whom organizing others comes naturally, we are really keen to hear from you. If you feel you have some of these skills, and still need to work on others please contact us anyway. We are looking for the right person for the job, rather than a specific skill set, and we actively support people to reach their learning goals.
