The Aldo Leopold Foundation fosters care for people, land and communities through the legacy of Aldo Leopold. Our organization sits importantly at the intersection of the past, present, and future. We interpret and care for Aldo Leopold’s Shack and Farm, a National Historic Landmark, share Leopold’s vision of a land ethic and A Sand County Almanac widely, and lead many education and conservation initiatives relevant for the 21st Century. Working out of the Leopold Center, among the greenest buildings in the world, we regularly convene our country’s conservation leaders, thinkers, and doers to improve how we care for land and each other.
The Communications and Marketing Coordinator is responsible for creating and maintaining content across multiple platforms. The person selected for this position will also be responsible for contributing to and helping execute a marketing plan designed to both raise awareness of the foundation’s programming and mission, and also increase program and membership revenue. Aldo Leopold’s life and legacy defy easy categorization; therefore the Communications and Marketing Coordinator has a strong understanding of how to leverage the value of connection, listening, and inclusion in sharing messages about the land ethic to ensure relevance in the 21st Century. The Communications and Marketing Coordinator connects with our primary audiences (natural resource professionals, educators, people who love the land, and potential donors) and welcomes and engages new audiences to help us build a land ethic together.
The Aldo Leopold Foundation is seeking a skilled communicator with a proven track record to lead the foundation’s communications and marketing efforts. We need a master storyteller, a relentless connector, and an opportunistic big thinker. The ideal candidate will be creative, flexible, energetic, and committed to advancing an inclusive land ethic. Required: An undergraduate degree in communications, marketing, or journalism and one to three years relevant work experience in communications and marketing for either a for-profit or not-for-profit company; or equivalent combination of education and experience. Some experience with WordPress or a similar content management system preferred. We also ask all our staff and fellows to play an active role in helping build an inclusive community and culture at the foundation.
