Digital Communications Manager

Job Description

The Thomson Reuters Foundation acts to promote socio-economic progress and the rule of law worldwide. The organisation leverages the skills, values and expertise of Thomson Reuters to run programmes that trigger real change on the ground and empower people across the world. With 100 staff members around the world and offices in 10 locations across the Americas, Africa, Europe and Asia, the Foundation has quickly become a point of reference in the corporate philanthropic world. The Thomson Reuters Foundation provides free services that inform, connect and empower people around the world through four key programmes:

  • TrustLaw - the Thomson Reuters Foundation's global pro bono legal programme. We connect the best law firms and corporate legal teams around the world with high-impact NGOs and social enterprises working to create social and environmental change. We produce groundbreaking legal research, and offer innovative training courses worldwide.
  • Trust Conference - a fast-growing movement committed to finding real solutions to fight modern-day slavery and human trafficking, empower women worldwide and put the rule of law behind human rights through an action-oriented global conference.
  • Under-reported News - We cover stories that are often overlooked by the mainstream media: modern day slavery, women's rights, aid and development, the human impact of climate change, and land and property rights. We believe that raising awareness can trigger debate and lead to open, fair, prosperous and tolerant societies.
  • Media Development - We run philanthropic initiatives, from the creation of sustainable, independent news platforms to a wide range of journalism training programmes worldwide. Additionally, we fund the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at Oxford University. At the heart of all our media development work are the Thomson Reuters Principles of accuracy, impartiality, independence and integrity.
