Our ideal candidate enjoys communicating effectively to different audiences and loves organizing and running events. You can connect ideas and individual stories to our mission and are inspired to share people’s stories through a variety of platforms. You are detail oriented and can see the big picture. You are a capable project manager and are tenacious when working towards a goal.
|You know how to tell a story through social media and capture people’s attention, and you enjoy getting people together to learn something new or have an experience that is meaningful. Ideally you will have had two or more years experience in communications and/or event management. You can hold details and prefer to be supported by your team rather than task managed. You are deadline focused and not intimidated by having a number of projects going at once. You like to evaluate the effectiveness of communications strategies, viewing it as an opportunity to learn and improve. And, you graduated from a four-year degree program or have equivalent life and work experience.|
It’s a plus if you have some graphic design experience and/or comfort with relational databases. It’s also a plus if you have skills or experience that can help further CISA’s mission to more equitably serve those working in agriculture and local food businesses. You don’t have to already be tapped into how amazing local agriculture is but if you are, that’s great!
