Job Description:

We are looking for a Marketing & Community Outreach Manager who is a passionate story-teller with a heart for education and the communications, social media, and volunteer outreach skills to back it up.

You will be a vital part of our small but mighty team in Canada, reporting to the Executive Director. You will be a champion for SchoolBOX, implementing our annual marketing and communications plan using exemplary written communication skills across a variety of media platforms. Your job is to tell the SchoolBOX story to our national and international community of volunteers, donors, and supporters in order to keep them engaged and active in supporting SchoolBOX’s mission in Nicaragua. You will also manage our international volunteer program. You will facilitate trip registration and pre-departure planning, and provide fundraising support for all of our volunteers travelling to Nicaragua.

We expect you to be of exemplary character, thrive in an independent work environment, and be passionate about the cause of global education. Since you must be able to work cross-culturally with our Nicaraguan team, a command of the Spanish language or a willingness to learn is an asset.

We offer a generous vacation and benefits package, as well as a flexible work schedule including the ability to work remotely or in our office in beautiful Almonte, Ontario.

Submit your resume and cover letter to jon@schoolbox.ca by May 25th, 2018. Only qualified applicants will be contacted for an interview.
