Communications and Outreach Assistant
Belgrade , Serbia
For the past year and a half I've been working as a Communications and Outreach Assistant at the Catalyst Foundation in Belgrade. The position was a continuation of my very first experience with the NGO sector, where I started in May 2014, first as a volunteer and shortly after as a Philanthropy Data Researcher - Remote. Being part of the Communications and Outreach team at the Catalyst Foundation includes working on CRM, Social Media Marketing, e-mail marketing, content writing and management and communication with third parties. The position brought me many skills in understanding the NGO sector, IT, communications and PR, and I became interested in internet marketing, web development and writing content and proofreading.
Simultaneously, I work as an Assistant at the Serbian Philanthropy Forum since November 2014. As an Assistant and the only employee at the (currently) informal organization SPF, I am working on writing content, communication, event management and e-mail marketing.
Previously, I have worked as a Data Collection and Labeling Associate at the Microsoft Development Center Serbia (April 2013 – October 2013). At the MDCS position I was introduced to business correspondence, software testing and data classifying and labeling processes. This job position also made me interested in programming.
I have graduated from the University of Belgrade, Faculty of Philology where I studied Arabic language, literature and culture. Besides Arabic, I speak English and Spanish. Currently, I am a student at the IT Academy, studing PHP Programming though one-year program.
As for my personal characteristisc, I would describe myself as very dedicated and detail oriented person. I like things done, but in a thorough way. I love to learn and gain new skills, and I beleive that if there's a will, anything can be learned.
