The AI Programme Lead will be responsible for designing and delivering AI training programs to early-career journalists and EU policymakers. They'll initially work across our EU Tech Policy Fellowship and our Tarbell Fellowship. Within 3-6 months, we expect they'll transition to leading one of these programmes. We’re excited to hire a seasoned operator that can steer one of these fellowships to success - or drive the launch of a third fellowship in an entirely new career path!

Responsibilities and activities

We expect the AI Programme Lead will assume the following key responsibilities:

  • Designing and delivering AI training programmes for early-career journalists and policymakers (~30%) This will likely be your primary work task for the first ~4 months (>70% of your time). Thereafter, we expect it to occupy much less of your time (~20%).
  • Taking extreme ownership of one of Training for Good’s current programmes (30%). We expect that you will transition to leading one of our existing programmes within 3-6 months of joining Training for Good. Once this happens, it will become one of your primary responsibilities (>60% of your time). You will be given a large degree of autonomy to enable you to thrive.
  • Miscellaneous (40%). As a small team with a startup mentality, we expect our entire team to take responsibility for a wide range of tasks. A significant amount of your time will be occupied by tasks not explicitly listed here, some of which may be well beyond (or even below) your current skill level. You will not always be operating within your zone of excellence, and you need to be okay with that. We will work with you to prioritise additional responsibilities based on your “skill” and “will”.

What we’re looking for

You might be an especially good fit if you have:

  • AI expertise: A background in AI governance, strategy or communications roles (eg. 3+ years though we’re open to applicants with less experience than this). Successful candidates must be able to build introductory & intermediate AI curricula for non-technical audiences and facilitate the training programme itself.
  • Ability to work autonomously: An ability to excel with relatively little supervision almost immediately. We’re excited to find a proactive self-starter to join our team.
  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills: Exceptionally strong verbal and written communication skills for internal and external stakeholders. Ability to deliver effective training sessions to small groups on AI fundamentals.
