We’re Hiring: Development & Communications Manager

826DC seeks a highly motivated self-starter to join our team as Development and Communications Manager, leading or overseeing social media channels, low- to mid-level giving campaigns, earned income revenue programs, and some special events. The ideal candidate will have a collaborative and can-do attitude, the ability to design collateral and implement dynamic and public-facing events, and experience with social media outreach and marketing. This person will report directly to the Director of Development and manages Communications intern(s), as needed, and Salesforce experience is a plus.

Who You Are

To be successful in this job, you will excel in three areas:

– Project management skills:  You will have a demonstrated track record of success in managing projects from conception to execution at a high-performing organization.
– Creative execution and communication skills: The 826 brand calls for a playful quip—and this position needs it in abundance. You’ll have a significant role in maintaining our high level of brand/design standards, which means a discerning eye is required.
– Interpersonal ability and a strong lens on issues of equity: Our small staff values equity and inclusion, and you must bring a commitment to build trust and goodwill in a diverse community. Prior experience in the nonprofit sector and with managing others would be a plus, but not a requirement. You need to fit well with our culture, demonstrate a commitment to excellence, and an innate humor!
