The Foundation is excited to announce the opening for an Associate Communications Officer. This role has a focus on implementing strategic digital communications that advance the Foundation’s priorities and optimize the Foundation’s reach.
This role is ideal for a communications professional with a strong digital communications background who understands most digital platforms and systems required for effective nonprofit marketing needs. A passion for and understanding of technology to create and implement effective communications that further our organizational goals is necessary. Applicants should be skilled at employing an effective balance of information, story narrative, and visuals (data visualization/infographics, photos and illustration) for our digital platforms. It is also essential that applicants have excellent project management skills and a demonstrated passion for the power of communications to influence and move people to action toward health equity in Colorado.
At the Foundation, we believe that keeping equity at the heart of our work will lead us to better health. That starts from within, including intentional application of diversity, equity and inclusion practices that guide how we operate and work in communities across Colorado. For example, our cornerstones are designed to help ensure that:
- We serve Coloradans who have low income and have historically had less power or privilege.
- We do everything with the intent of creating health equity.
- We are informed by the community and those we exist to serve.
Ideal candidates will underscore our mission and cornerstones in all you do at the Foundation. At minimum, applicants should have a Bachelor’s degree in digital marketing, nonprofit management, technology or a related area. Three years of relevant experience in a professional setting may be substituted for a degree.
The position also requires solid experience in implementing digital strategy across multiple platforms and communications channels as well as demonstrated experience with Drupal content management system (CMS) platforms, email marketing system platforms, coding HTML/CSS, customer relationship management (CRM), and Adobe Creative Suite. Candidates will have had success managing and growing social media channels as well as management of digital analytics and reporting.
This is an extraordinary opportunity for an individual to have a meaningful impact through their professional contributions. Interested candidates may submit their resumes and cover letters on the Colorado Health Foundation’s website (www.coloradohealth.org).
