Student position at Maternity Foundation in Copenhagen

Student Position at Maternity Foundation

We are looking for a bright student worker, who would like to assist us with managing content in our newly build Content Management System.

Who are we:

Maternity Foundation is a Danish NGO that aims to reduce maternal and newborn mortality in low and middle Income countries. Every year, over 300.000 women die from pregnancy related causes globally and more than five million babies die during birth or within the first weeks of their lives.  90% of these deaths are preventable with access to basic skilled birth attendance.

The Safe Delivery App: 

In 2012, University of Southern Denmark, University of Copenhagen and Maternity Foundation joined forces to develop a mobile app (The Safe Delivery App) with the purpose to train and instruct skilled birth attendants on how to manage the fatal complications that can occur during birth. The app can be used in pre-service and in-service trainings and as an in-practice job aid.

Since the launch of the app in April 2015, we have experienced a huge interest from partners across Asia and Sub Saharan Africa.

Maternity Foundation have made a commitment with UN Every Woman Every Child to have reached 20.000 health workers with the app by end 2018.

In order to do this, we have created a second version of the Safe Delivery App with a new and scalable backend, an integrated Content Management System and a new design.

The position:

We are at the brink of publishing a number of new language versions of the Safe Delivery App and we will need assistance with content implementation into our new CMS as well as with testing of the systems.

You will need to have a keen eye for English grammar as well as technical proficiency – as you will be working with a newly build software.

The position will be project-based and the number of hours/week will be agreed upon on an ongoing basis.

Tasks include:

  • Managing the content implementation into the new Content Management System, primarily with regards to implementing a Hindi and Lao version of the Safe Delivery App (language skills not required).
  • Technical/content layout testing of CMS and app.
  • Implementation of content for a new learning platform.
  • Other ad hoc tasks.

Salary will be 130 dkk/hour.

Starting as soon as possible.
