Communications Director
Voqal

Job submitted on 01/11/2013

Background Information

Voqal is a new brand recently developed by five non-profit organizations that got their start in the mid-1980s transmitting educational video programs to schools. But times have changed. Today, these organizations provide an array of telecommunications services (including mobile broadband) to schools and nonprofits nationwide; give away millions of dollars per year to charitable programs centered on social equality; and participate in other entrepreneurial endeavors using their spectrum expertise. To give one example, they are currently seeking to finance the purchase of financially troubled public TV stations. Though they are separate organizations, the five non-profits do a lot in common. In 2008, they formed a service organization to help unite their sprawling enterprises under one roof and management team. This organization is known as EBS Support Services, LLC. Even as management grew more coherent, the increasing complexity of the work has made it harder to explain concisely what we do. Hence the five non-profits approved a branding effort that will bring their programs, services, initiatives, and subsidiaries under one umbrella brand: Voqal. They plan to roll out the Voqal brand in March, 2013.

Job Purpose:

Reporting to the President, the Communications Director will set and guide the strategy for all Voqal communications, website, and public relations messages and collateral to articulate Voqal's mission in a consistent manner. The Communications Director will ensure that Voqal is viewed as the primary conduit of information within this diverse network of organizations, initiatives, and constituent bases. The Communications Director will work closely with a senior peer group within the organization and serve as a resource to those leading the various strategic initiatives.

Responsibilities:

Designs, develops and implements communications and public relations programs.
Manages and coordinates media relations and external communications.
Creates awareness of the Voqal brand and Voqal activities.
Serves as the overall guardian of Voqal's brand; enforces the Voqal brand management protocol.
Leads the generation of Voqal.org content that engages constituencies.
Manages the development, distribution, and maintenance of all print and electronic collateral including, but not limited to, newsletters, brochures and the Voqal.org website.
Manages all Voqal online and social media content.
Coordinates webpage maintenance--ensures that new and consistent information (article links, stories, and events) is posted regularly.
Manages Voqal's promotion campaigns, including writing copy and developing special events.
Tracks and measures the level of engagement within the various audiences over time.
Defines metrics for all communications initiatives; track and report on metrics; analyze metrics for improvement and experimentation.
Develops and implements coordinated and creative multi-platform strategies that harness online/digital, media relations, and marketing capabilities that multiply the impact of Voqal, as well as engage and build audiences in line with the non-profits' strategic plans.
Other duties as assigned.

Qualifications:

At least five years of experience developing and implementing communications strategies, ideally in an "in-house" leadership role within a complex nonprofit entity (as measured by the number and variety of constituents), and covering areas such as website content, social media and newsletters. The ability to take knowledge and transform it into exciting and useful messages, and disseminate it to the right audiences through the best distribution channels is critical.

Here are some related skills and qualities we're seeking:

A strong track record as an implementer who thrives on managing a variety of key initiatives concurrently.
Excellent writing/editing and verbal communication skills. Knowledge of video production is a plus.
Commitment to work collaboratively with all constituent groups, including staff, board members, volunteers, donors, program participants, and other supporters.
Entrepreneurial: enjoys creating and implementing new initiatives.
Self-starter, ability to work independently, multi-task, manage competing priorities, and thrive in a fast-evolving environment.
Experience in non-profit organizations preferred.
