Over the past few years, I’ve closely followed NOW Legal Defense and Education Fund’s metamorphosis into Legal Momentum (LM), and been engaged enough by their excellent job of transitioning that I even wrote this case study on the name change. Read it for a brilliant model of a nonprofit name change that generated clearer understanding, increased support and broader reach.
What a great place for Legal Momentum’s new VP of Communications to jump off from. I just heard about the search today and urge experienced, strategic nonprofit marketers to read more about the job here, and to apply if the shoe fits.
Legal Momentum employs cutting edge legal, legislative and educational strategies to secure equality and justice for women. The successful candidate will have passion for the issues addressed by Legal Momentum and experience in message development and positioning, advocacy and a strong record of success across a range of media, including online communications.
The new VP will be responsible for initiating, organizing and executing all communications and marketing efforts, while maintaining the integrity, vision and voice of Legal Momentum’s brand. Working in close collaboration with LM leadership and program staff, s/he will manage a staff of three full time and one part time person in New York and Washington, DC, plus manage communications consultants.
If you’re smart, engaged, engaging, energetic, this is a great opportunity for you. Consider it.
BTW, this job overview is a great model of a job description for a communications leader — clear, detailed and thorough.
