This position is responsible for advancing the mission of MCF by strategically communicating its brand and value proposition in a consistent and high-profile manner through a variety of communications vehicles. View a complete job description here.

The ideal candidate will be able to work with other MCF staff to communicate relatively complex ideas (in grant-making, fund development and investments) in simple, compelling terms. This requires excellent written and verbal communications skills; working knowledge of the unique aspects of brand management, marketing and communications; the ability to develop and tell stories; and strong planning, organization and project management skills. Proficiencies in MS Office, web content management, social media platforms and desktop publishing are a must.

While other MCF staff help on various initiatives, there are currently no other permanent staff dedicated to this department; which reinforces the need for the ideal candidate to excel at self-management and working across teams. There may occasionally be interns to add some capacity.

Personal attributes that are fundamental to the role include: creativity, humility, strong work ethic, strong ethical compass, an ability and willingness to engage with people of varying ethnicities, backgrounds, and socioeconomic levels, and a warm collegial style.

An Undergraduate degree is required. A minimum of five years of experience in communications, journalism, marketing or related field. This individual will report to the President and work closely with all departments. Competitive salary commensurate with experience.

Interested candidates should forward a cover letter and resume to by April 12th, 2019.
