Deputy Writing Director

Brand New Congress is running a nationwide distributed self-serve volunteer campaign to take advantage of our wide volunteer network and have the biggest effect possible for our campaigns on the ground. We need a strong communication team to do this and a solid team of writers to email supporters.


We are looking for a dedicated volunteer right now, but this could potentially turn into a paid staff position down the line.


DUTIES:

  • Oversee the writing of emails.
  • Oversee the editing and proofing of emails.
  • Oversee the proper loading of emails into Nation Builder.
    • While this person should have some decent writing ability, it is far more important that they are comfortable battling with NB on a daily basis.
  • This person will also help to manage the writing team.
    • keep the current vols on track - allowing the writing director to focus on the bigger picture strategy.

NEEDS:


Hard worker and quick learner with a good sense of humor and a positive attitude (obviously).  


Someone that is a self starter, this will be about building out the teams. The Writing team has a good starting point of people on it, but there will be a need to grow and to see the structures that need to be set in place.


Flexibility. Brand New Congress is about the team and the mission, so keep in mind that there is a need for flexibility in direction. Especially in relation to Communication Teams, things change fast.


SKILLS:


An Understanding of NationBuilder. We use NationBuilder as our platform for the Brand New Congress emails. If you are quick to learn, then at least understanding of other email servers would be good.


Proofreading. The Email team will be full of writing, checking proofs at times for other teams, and copy editing or proofing emails one last time before they go out.
