About this opportunity

About Corethics

Founded in 2017 by Melissa McCabe, Corethics is an independent not-for-profit established to create sustainable and thriving communities in the developing world. We partner with trusted community organisations working on the ground to tackle some of the most complex issues affecting human society and the environment. Our Bali, Indonesia Program consists of two projects: Water for Bali and Waste 4 Wealth. #waterforbali addresses the devastating depleting water sources on the Island of the Gods. In partnership with IDEP Foundation, we are able to replenish water, provide water stewardship education, and raise public awareness. #waste4wealth tackles an "invisible" threat to human and environmental health - toxic chemical pollution from industry. Through circular wastewater treatment solutions, innovation can transform communities free from the edges of poverty.

About the role

We are looking for a talented blogger to generate engaging, original content for our website. The blogger will research topics and develop interesting posts that will appeal to our target audience and promote the blog using social media, direct email, and other methods to alert and expand our readership. This will require you to liaise with our social media, website, and fund-raising team to schedule and share your work. You should be a skilled, tech-savvy writer who can create appealing, insightful posts that will reach and grow our audience. Topics Corethics writes about: women in development, leadership, and empowerment, ethics in business, ethical fashion, water, ethical tourism, and culture in Indonesia. Broadly we are focused on advancing the environment and education. To get an understanding of our posts head to our website. To succeed as a blogger, you should be focused on generating and composing interesting content and expanding your readership. You should be creative, adaptable, and analytical with excellent writing skills and a unique voice. We hope this experience will either catapult you into the not-for-profit sector or give you the satisfaction of sharing your skills to benefit local communities in Bali and help them overcome their water crisis. Maybe both! June 2022
