Senior Communications Coordinator | Grassroots International
About this position:
Grassroots International seeks a Senior Communications Coordinator (SCC) to develop and manage the overall external communications and marketing strategy for Grassroots International (GRI). The SCC works in partnership with all staff to craft messages and communicate in ways that represent the values and the work of GRI and amplify the voices of our global movement partners. The SCC reports to the Executive Director and works closely with two part-time communications staff supervised by the Development Director. The full-time position is based in Boston, MA.
This is an exciting time to join the Grassroots International team. We’re on a dynamic trajectory of growth and learning, while remaining deeply accountable to our partners and our mission. Last year we passed a new strategic plan which lifts up communications as one of our top priorities. As part of that plan, we committed to increase our communications capacity and focus our communications strategy in order to increase our presence across relevant media platforms, expand our storytelling and elevation of our partners’ knowledge and voices, and radically reframe philanthropy as solidarity and accompaniment. The creation of this new position is an expression of our deeper organizational commitment to communications.
This job will be a great opportunity for someone who is passionate about human rights and social movements/grassroots organizing and skilled in a variety of communications strategies, including writing. As this is a new position, the ideal candidate is someone who enjoys the challenge of developing new strategies and systems, collaboratively with a team.
