What will you be doing?

Power of Zero is addressing the biggest societal change that childhood has been through since the Industrial Revolution.  Children are increasingly online, with extraordinary opportunities for connectivity, creativity and learning. At the same time, increased access exposes them to violent and sexual content and the risks of unwanted contact, cyberbullying, commercial exploitation and other impacts upon their physical and psychological health. Power of Zero is a global initiative that brings together parents, educators, researchers, UN agencies, corporate citizens, NGOs and philanthropic foundations to ensure that every child learns the life skills they need to navigate their online-offline lives. What unites us are values of kindness, inclusivity and respect and the determination to protect children’s well-being as they begin their online journey. We are seeking an experienced writer to build recognition of Power of Zero among parents and educators as a trusted resource. Our ideal candidate will have experience as an article writer, copywriter, journalist or a similar role . The ability to research the online world in which children are growing up and create clear, valuable and compelling content is critical.   We are looking for someone who can commit to at least seven hours a week.  Enthusiasm for Power of Zero’s mission is more important to us than a padded CV – if you’re passionate about our cause then we would love to hear from you.
