Vacancy: Project manager, Point of View

Application Deadline: 15 November 2010

About Us
Point of View is a Mumbai-based non-profit organization that brings the points of view of women into the public domain through media, art and culture. We work across five program areas:
Fighting for Headspace: Placing the broad concept of gender in the public domain
Pushing the Boundaries: Putting forward the realities of women in sex work in their own voices

Speaking in Tongues: Highlighting marginalized realities related to gender and HIV, sexuality, mental health, migration, body image etc
Defending Our Bodies: Enabling women to speak out about and prevent domestic violence
Changing the Lens: Building the art and media capacities of grassroots women
Our work is carried out in collaboration with grassroots NGOs and blends gender and sexuality content with media, art and culture forms and platforms. These include photo, video, theatre, text, festivals, new media, interactive games etc.

We are a lean organization with a staff of less than nine. Our work style is not rooted in a 9 to 5 job ethic, but in a bottom-up collaborative culture that offers freedom and flexibility and demands delivery and accountability.

Job Description
Point of View is looking for a Project Manager who will actively manage the execution of our ongoing domestic violence project: Act Against Domestic Violence: The Law Is On Your Side.

The project aims to enable women in Mumbai to speak out about, act against, and prevent domestic violence. We are working with diverse constituencies to make this happen: community activists in slum areas, young people in colleges, health workers in hospitals, and the amorphous ‘general public’ in its many avatars.

Leading a small team, the Project Manager would work with these constituencies to systematically drive this project forward.

Essential Candidate Skills
1. A track record of successful project management

2. Atleast five years of work experience in the non-profit sector

3. Creative approaches to outreach and dissemination

4. Strong interpersonal skills

5. An ability to work collaboratively and equitably with diverse constituencies: grassroots, college students, health workers, community activists etc

6. Solid grounding in women’s rights, including violence against women

7. An ability to lead, guide and mentor a small work team while giving each person space and direction to develop

Ideally, we’d like an energetic, enthusiastic person who is detail-oriented and takes pride in getting things done well.
