GiveWell and the Centre for Effective Altruism are recruiting

Both GiveWell and the Cen­tre for Effec­tive Altru­ism (CEA) --an Oxford-based um­brella or­ga­ni­za­tion con­sist­ing of Giv­ing What We Can, 80,000 Hours, The Life You Can Save, and Effec­tive An­i­mal Ac­tivism—have been dis­cussed here be­fore. So I thought some folks might want to know that these or­ga­ni­za­tions are re­cruit­ing for a num­ber of po­si­tions. Here are rele­vant ex­cerpts from the offi­cial job an­nounce­ments:

GiveWell: Re­search Analyst

GiveWell is look­ing for a Re­search An­a­lyst to help us eval­u­ate char­i­ties, find the most out­stand­ing giv­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties, and pub­lish our anal­y­sis to help donors de­cide where to give.

Effec­tive An­i­mal Ac­tivism: Ex­ec­u­tive Director

Effec­tive An­i­mal Ac­tivism is a re­cently-founded pro­ject of 80,000 Hours. It is the world’s first on­line re­source and in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity for peo­ple who want to re­duce an­i­mal suffer­ing effec­tively. We are cur­rently look­ing for a part-time ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor. Re­spon­si­bil­ities will in­clude cre­at­ing con­tent, man­ag­ing the com­mu­nity, pub­li­ciz­ing the site, and over­see­ing as well as un­der­tak­ing fur­ther char­ity re­search. Fu­ture pro­jects in­clude cre­at­ing a pub­li­ca­tion on our in­ter­ven­tion eval­u­a­tion once com­plete, at­tend­ing con­fer­ences, run­ning ad cam­paigns, and reach­ing out to the me­dia, an­i­mal char­i­ties and philan­thropists.

Giv­ing What We Can: Head of Communications

We are look­ing for some­one to com­mu­ni­cate Giv­ing What We Can’s mes­sage to the world. As Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Man­ager you would be re­spon­si­ble for han­dling our press re­la­tions and guid­ing our pub­lic image.

80,000 Hours: Head of Ca­reers Research

We are look­ing for some­one to drive cut­ting-edge re­search into effec­tive eth­i­cal ca­reers and trans­late it into one-on-one and on­line ca­reers ad­vice, which you’ll share with in­ter­est­ing peo­ple from all over the world.

The Life You Can Save: Direc­tor of Outreach (In­tern)

We are look­ing for some­one to lead our out­reach to pledgers and sup­port­ers as well as lo­cal groups, other char­i­ties, and cor­po­ra­tions. In this role, you’ll play a key part in set­ting our strate­gic pri­ori­ties and driv­ing the growth of The Life You Can Save. You’ll be work­ing alongside Peter Singer – one of the most in­fluen­tial ethi­cists of the 20th cen­tury.

Cen­tre for Effec­tive Altru­ism: Head of Fundrais­ing and Ex­ter­nal Relations

We are look­ing for some­one to man­age our fundrais­ing and rep­re­sent us to other or­gani­sa­tions. In this role you would serve all four or­gani­sa­tions in the Cen­tre for Effec­tive Altru­ism: Giv­ing What We Can, 80,000 Hours, The Life You Can Save and Effec­tive An­i­mal Ac­tivism.
