Typical day

It is really difficult to describe a typical day of the Marketing and Communications Coordinator. As already mentioned before, the schedule is flexible and unconventional. Parts of the work have to be done online, for example managing the social media platforms. Other parts are onsite in the project, for example creating new marketing content making photos of the projects. 

Here is an example how a day could be: 

  • 8AM: start with your work remotely, updating the social media platforms and writing content for the next Intiwawa newsletter. 
  • 10AM: Meeting with several members of the Comité Peru to plan a new fundraising event, where Marketing is also very important
  • 1PM: meet with the Sales Coordinator and some Volunteers, make some photos with the new products of the knitting project for the advertisement in the shop
  • 3PM: go onsite to Casa Intiwawa (Mollebaya) and collect marketing content for the next Intiwawa impact video.

Details on arrival

We are searching for a Marketing and Communications Coordinator to be onsite in Peru starting in February 2022. We do not have any specific arrival days, the arrival date will be coordinated individually together with the Volunteer Coordinator and the General Director. 

If desired, one of the Peruvian team or the Volunteer Coordinator can pick you up from the airport in Arequipa. 

As we do not charge a fee, we also do not provide free accommodation. But what we provide is the offer to have a long-term stay in a hostel where Intiwawa's volunteers get discounts. So, low-cost housing is available.
