Do you love writing a good pitch? Would your friends describe you as confident? Want to get involved with UN-aligned and help us with our media work?

We think you might be a great fit for our new open position: PR Manager

Behind the scenes at UN-aligned we are writing and campaigning relentlessly for change. We celebrate the accomplishments but we’re just getting started and there is so much more to do.

Even the best petition in the world will not create change if the petition does not get the publicity that it deserves. We’d like you to make sure that UN-aligned’s work is shown to influential media outlets, you shouldn’t be afraid of pitching to journalists.

You should be familiar with a media kit and be ready to think on your feet to speak on behalf of UN-aligned with clarity and gumption.

Job description:

  • Create a Media Kit for UN-aligned to be shown to interested parties and introduce us.
  • Regularly pitching UN-aligned campaigns to media outlets and influential individuals via email, social letter and maybe even pen to paper.
  • Researching grants that UN-aligned may be eligible for plus preparing and performing pitches for eligible grants if necessary.
  • Managing all enquiries from media and other organisations who wish to collaborate with UN-aligned to create and maintain good relationships.
  • Plan online, virtual events to “get the word out there” about UN-aligned.


  • Your beliefs align with our beliefs on the environment, animal welfare and Human Rights.
  • Fluent English.
  • Ability to dedicate approximately six hours per week to the role.
  • Love communicating with others via email, on the phone and face to face + if you love talking about UN-aligned that’s a bonus!
  • Can be trusted to create your own projects and execute them to the best of your ability within an agreed time frame.
  • Your friends might have called you an internet detective, if you’re looking for journalist Bob Smith’s email, you won’t stop until you’ve found him (plus photos from his family holiday in 2014).
  • Highly responsible, if you’ve told an organisation that you’ll hop on a call with them at 17:00, we know you’ll already be online and waiting for them at 16:59.
  • Responsive to Emails and messages with the UN-aligned team. This role is highly integrated with all other areas of UN-aligned so replies within 24 hours on a working day would be ideal.


  • We will  show you the ropes and integrate you into the team slowly
  • Specific PR experience is useful but isn’t a requirement, your positive nature and proactive approach to work is most important.

Take ownership of UN-aligned

Unlike most organisations, UN-aligned is, primarily, its members. We are the New United Nations and though just a drop in the ocean, for now, we will carry on growing until we will become a force to be reckoned with! The more of us there are, the more chance we have of achieving our aims. Help us by promoting membership to you friends or to people you think have similar values. If every member added another, membership would snowball and we would be unstoppable! We also need active members: people who roll up their sleeves and contribute to the work of the organisation. Some already have, for instance, by writing articles for The Gordian, or offering to help with proofreading.

No matter what you can do, we want you. Write to us with your talents and we’ll make it work.

Off with the head! Getting Rid of Phoney Justice

Welcome to the September issue of The Gordian.

Executing a human being and punishments like solitary confinement are as coldblooded and premeditated as murder and torture can get. They are not in self-defence, because the danger has passed. It is not justice, because a person can always outweigh their deeds, and they can change, given the chance. The theme of this series is still justice and in this issue, we are looking at it from different angles, including those phoney ones imposed on the guilty with little or no respect for their welfare and human right.

This issue offers the usual mix of politics, interviews and culture by UN-aligneders across the world, including Ruby Goldenberg, Carla Pietrobattista, Katharina Wüstnienhaus, Victoria Davila, Partho Chatterjee and Maya Bearyman, Cristina Mihailescu, Omar Alansari-Kreger, Atika Harba and Sonia Roopnarain.

The editors are Adrian Liberto and Ariana Yekrangi.
