Creative Team for The Public Interest Network
We’re hiring a Creative Team Lead to oversee digital content creators.
We focus on issues that affect the quality of our lives — issues like clean energy, clean water and public health. We’re strategic in our approach and place a premium on making a difference. We’re passionate about building the support we need to win.
Our Network has long been a leader in person-to-person canvassing and field. Now we want to elevate our presence and impact online. As Creative Team Lead, you will manage at least five staff and work with dozens of others to run smart, effective digital campaigns for U.S. PIRG, Environment America and other Public Interest Network groups.
In short, we want to create space online for a new brand of politics. We live in transformational times. The old paradigms and politics are yielding nothing but gridlock. It’s time for something new.
Oversee the plans and work of five creative professionals. Help them plan out their workload, and troubleshoot the problems.
Steer our the team’s decisions in smart, strategic directions.
Review and help improve our email alerts and appeals, our social media and our Web content.
Attend and help lead periodic meetings and trainings.
Organized: You need to be as comfortable with the 30,000 foot view of your team’s work as you are with the nitty-gritty daily plans that will help us reach our goals for the year. You need to be organized and clear-headed, be vigilant about tracking our team’s progress, and give recommendations on what we need to change in order to reach our goals.
Nimble: You’ll manage projects for your staff in a quickly changing, deadline-oriented work environment, spotting potential schedule and workload problems ahead of time.
Attention to detail: Reviewing and editing content is an important aspect of the job. Whether it’s fixing a spelling mistake or editing a sentence that’s off-message, you need to be vigilant and make sure we’re putting the best possible content out there.
Innovation and problem solving: Things can go wrong, and fast—so you can’t hesitate to flag mistakes, define problems, and pull people in where needed to solve a problem and move forward. Think on your feet and make things better. Be bold with your ideas. Propose them. Try them out. Make decisions.
Writing and editing: Must be a clear communicator and able to write to an audience with a strong command of grammar, logic and narrative.
Creative: Able to anticipate or define a problem, brainstorm solutions, propose or decide on a course of action, and follow through.
Enthusiasm: This is more than a 9 to 5 job. We deliver what we promise and take the time to do it right. And we want people who are eager to take on more so they can expand the scope and impact of their work.
Compensation and benefits:
Compensation for this position is commensurate with the relevant professional experience and/or advanced degrees that a candidate has. The Public Interest Network offers a competitive benefits package.
