What is a typical day at Reach for Change?
A typical morning starts around 9 am when you arrive at our office in Gamla Stan, the center of Stockholm, but due to the covid-19 pandemic, you can be expected to work remotely some or all of the time. You will review your tasks of the day that might include writing newsletters, creating videos, social media content, and contributing to our campaigns and digital platforms. You will also be put in charge of one red thread project of your own depending on your interests, for example setting up a structure for how we work with social media insight, running a podcast, creating a mini-campaign, or renewing our webpage. The day usually finishes at 5 pm but work hours are flexible. Each week, you will have a check-in with your supervisor in order to discuss your next steps.
