Community Engagement and Business Development Manager
News-Decoder is looking for an innovative, energetic and trustworthy self-starter to help us extend our global reach and influence.
The Community Engagement and Business Development Manager works closely with our key stakeholders: founder Nelson Graves, Trustees and Advisors, academic members and media partners. The successful candidate will help drive ongoing projects with these stakeholders and identify and develop new business opportunities.
Currently we have 17 member schools, spread across 10 countries, that pay an annual fee to be part of our community. A substantial part of the job is devoted to working in tandem with the founder to support these relationships, specifically working with Student Ambassadors representing News-Decoder at each school. The Ambassadors are critical links between News-Decoder and the schools, and our success depends in large part on their contributions, which in turn hinge on the relationship between our Community Engagement Manager and the students.
Students along with News-Decoder’s team of contributors submit material to our public website, and the successful candidate will help the founder maintain and improve our web presence. The person will also help the founder to organize and produce our periodic webinars featuring students from our partner institutions and guest experts.
The successful candidate plays an important role in shaping and executing News-Decoder’s social media and marketing strategy. This entails managing News-Decoder’s multiple social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, LinkedIn), promoting our website and creating fresh content to raise News-Decoder’s profile. The successful candidate will be responsible for creating creative marketing collateral, including an annual handbook, which strengthens our relations with existing partners and helps us land new ones.
The successful candidate will work closely with the founder in ensuring News-Decoder has adequate financing, through membership fees, private donations and support from foundations. This requires an intimate understanding of News-Decoder’s operations and a willingness to help ensure partners are satisfied and new opportunities are identified. The successful candidate will be tasked with researching potential donors among foundations.
News-Decoder is a young organization but has already established a track record and a brand. The successful candidate will help take our not-for-profit to the next level.
The applicant should be:
– A self-starter
– Willing to tackle a range of responsibilities
– A strong communicator, in writing and verbally
Candidates must be willing to commit to at least one year and be eligible to work legally in France.
Experience with Photoshop and Adobe Suites, or prior experience creating marketing collateral using other platforms, can be a plus.
This job entails important responsibilities, but the rewards of growing this innovative not-for-profit will be great.
