Both GiveWell and the Centre for Effective Altruism (CEA) --an Oxford-based umbrella organization consisting of Giving What We Can, 80,000 Hours, The Life You Can Save, and Effective Animal Activism-- have been discussed here before.  So I thought some folks might want to know that these organizations are recruiting for a number of positions.  Here are relevant excerpts from the official job announcements:

GiveWell: Research Analyst

GiveWell is looking for a Research Analyst to help us evaluate charities, find the most outstanding giving opportunities, and publish our analysis to help donors decide where to give.


Effective Animal Activism: Executive Director

Effective Animal Activism is a recently-founded project of 80,000 Hours. It is the world’s first online resource and international community for people who want to reduce animal suffering effectively. We are currently looking for a part-time executive director. Responsibilities will include creating content, managing the community, publicizing the site, and overseeing as well as undertaking further charity research. Future projects include creating a publication on our intervention evaluation once complete, attending conferences, running ad campaigns, and reaching out to the media, animal charities and philanthropists.


Giving What We Can: Head of Communications

We are looking for someone to communicate Giving What We Can’s message to the world. As Communications Manager you would be responsible for handling our press relations and guiding our public image.


80,000 Hours: Head of Careers Research

We are looking for someone to drive cutting-edge research into effective ethical careers and translate it into one-on-one and online careers advice, which you’ll share with interesting people from all over the world.


The Life You Can Save: Director of Outreach (Intern)

We are looking for someone to lead our outreach to pledgers and supporters as well as local groups, other charities, and corporations. In this role, you’ll play a key part in setting our strategic priorities and driving the growth of The Life You Can Save. You’ll be working alongside Peter Singer – one of the most influential ethicists of the 20th century.


Centre for Effective Altruism: Head of Fundraising and External Relations

We are looking for someone to manage our fundraising and represent us to other organisations. In this role you would serve all four organisations in the Centre for Effective Altruism: Giving What We Can, 80,000 Hours, The Life You Can Save and Effective Animal Activism.

(Full disclosure: I'm friends with the co-founders of CEA and have donated to Effective Animal Activism.)
