COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER/DIRECTOR

Company: Cavendish Farms Corporation
Location: Washington
Posted on: April 9, 2021

Job Description:

Civic Nation seeks a Communications Manager/Director for a new public education and grassroots mobilization effort, the Covid-19 Vaccine Trust Campaign, which seeks to build trust in the COVID-19 vaccines and promote other behavioral changes to combat the pandemic. The effort will serve as a centralized hub to coordinate and disseminate messages and effective strategies through a broad coalition of trusted partners.-- Reporting to the VP of Communications, the Communications Manager/Director role is about 60% press and media engagement and 40% comms strategy. This breakdown could shift depending on if this role is hired at the Manager or Director level. In their communications work, the Communications Manager/Director will be primarily responsible for supporting the creation of measurable and impactful organization-wide communications strategies to protect and enhance the Covid-19 Vaccine Trust Campaign brand, uplift the work of our partner groups on the ground and support our work to build trust in the COVID-19 vaccines. In their media relations work, the Communications Manager/Director will be primarily responsible for creating and implementing earned media strategies, managing messaging for all media interactions, and leading outreach to national and state based journalists focused on healthcare and vaccinations. The ideal candidate for this position brings at least 6+ years of leadership experience in the communications, public relations, media relations, or press management fields. They have a demonstrated ability to foster an environment of collaboration and teamwork and are passionate about equity in our healthcare system. This person should also be proactive, detail-oriented, be an excellent project manager, and thrive in balancing the execution of multiple priorities.-- This is a remote, "short" term campaign that will end in July 2022. ABOUT THE COVID-19 VACCINE TRUST CAMPAIGN-- Extensive research shows that half of Americans say they either will not or are unsure if they will get a COVID-19 vaccine, with particularly high rates of uncertainty among the very communities hardest hit by the pandemic. Experts across the public health sector are calling for an unprecedented public outreach campaign to overcome this hesitancy.-- Recognizing this urgent need, we are launching the COVID-19 Vaccine Trust Campaign, a communications, outreach, and grassroots mobilization effort to build public trust in the COVID-19 vaccines through trusted messengers who can engage in dialogue and share clear, consistent information with the target audience.-- The program will serve as a centralized hub to coordinate and disseminate messages and effective strategies through a broad coalition of trusted partners. We'll work with partner organizations to reach local leaders who will serve as medical experts, and work to expand our network of validators through grassroots programs that encourage community-based institutions to share information with their communities.-- Requirements YOUR IMPACT
