EXECUTIVE SECRETARY – FOREIGN PRESS ASSOCIATION

The Foreign Press Association (FPA) is looking for a new Executive Secretary to replace Glenys Sugarman who is retiring later this year.

Established in 1957, the FPA works to protect the interests of journalists covering Israel and the Palestinian territories.

Our mandate is to represent our members, collectively and individually, in all their common issues with Israeli and Palestinian authorities, so they can report the news free from interference and danger.

Much more about what we do can be found here: http://www.fpa.org.il/?categoryId=89053

Role and Responsibilities

The Executive Secretary is the only paid employee of the FPA.

He or she works closely with the nine members of the FPA board, in particular with the Chairman.

The Executive Secretary is the primary point of contact for all FPA members regarding any help they may require during their work, or if they need to bring to wider attention any issues that have arisen, over access or mistreatment, for instance.

The Executive Secretary is also the first port of call for non-members and/or other interested parties wishing to get in touch with the FPA for whatever reason.

Managing those relationships and following up issues as they arise – primarily through phone and email communication – is a key day-to-day responsibility of the position.

Where and when necessary, and after agreement with board members, the Executive Secretary is expected to act as a main liaison with officials responsible for access to conflict areas, and to co-ordinate with lawyers in those cases where legal intervention is deemed required.

The Executive Secretary is responsible for preparing receipts, accounts, and copies of payments made for the accountant, as well as for processing applications for new members.

Other duties include arranging board meetings and distributing minutes, coordinating speakers and other FPA press events, arranging TV and print pools with the PMO/GPO where necessary, updating FPA social media, maintaining a membership directory and other tasks as they arise. 

Experience and Expectations

The successful candidate will have good organizational, administrative, and written skills and a proven track record of forging good working relations with both Israeli and Palestinian authorities.

Experience of having worked as a journalist in Israel and the Palestinian territories with an international news bureau is highly desirable.

Fluency in Hebrew and English is essential; a good working knowledge of Arabic is desirable.

This is a part-time position, and given the nature of the news business work-flow is unlikely to be regular.

The successful candidate must be comfortable working flexible hours and must be ready, within reason, to give the job their fullest attention at any given moment.

Finally, it is important that anyone applying for the position feels a sense of personal commitment to our mission, and is supportive of, and sympathetic towards, the role of foreign media reporting in an often highly challenging environment.

Competitive salary according to experience.

Applicants should send a cv and covering letter by June 15th, 2019 to fpa1@netvision.net.il
