The School for Moral Ambition (SMA) is a new organisation which "will help people switch careers to work on the most pressing issues of our time". SMA's co-founders are Jan Willem van Putten (co-founder of Training for Good), and Rutger Bregman (author of Humankind, Utopia for Realists, and an upcoming book on Moral Ambition, inspired by the Effective Altruism movement).
From their website:
The School for Moral Ambition (SMA) is a new organisation that will focus on attracting the most talented people to work on the most pressing issues of our time. The activities of SMA fall into the following categories:
- Book and Branding: Launch of Rutger Bregman’s book on the topic of moral ambition - the idea that people’s talents should be used for working on global challenges. Launch of a corresponding campaign to establish a prestigious brand that attracts talent and sparks a movement around moral ambition.
- Community Activities: We will organise Moral Ambition Circles and offer the resources to start their own Circle. These circles help morally ambitious people develop a career that matches their ideals.
- Exclusive Fellowship Programs: Initiation of targeted, highly selective programs in which small groups of fellows (~12 people) will focus on solving one of the most pressing and neglected global problems together.

NB- I'm linkposting this because I think the Forum audience may be interested in these roles. I'm not affiliated with the organisation and therefore can't answer questions about them.
PS- If you spot a job that you think EAs should see, linkpost it on the Forum! A surprising amount of people find out about jobs that they later get through the Forum, so you might just shift a career, or get a more impact-focused person into an important role.
