Description
Have you ever dreamed of making an impact on the future of a region that’s home to polar bears, wild salmon, and diverse cultures? World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the world’s leading conservation organization, has been working in the Arctic for twenty years, and has had a field office in Alaska for over a decade. WWF’s program is focused on Arctic oceans protection; sustainable fisheries; and conserving trans-boundary species and ecosystems in the face of rapid climate change. Effective communications are integral to delivering results in our conservation efforts.

The WWF Arctic Field office in Alaska seeks a Manager of External Relations to be a key player in developing innovative approaches in communications and development. This position will provide strategic direction in media relations for the WWF Arctic Field program; implement external communications; develop a network of supporters inside and beyond Alaska; and, working closely with WWF US headquarters and WWF Global Arctic teams, provide relevant information and communications. S/He will work directly with technical conservation experts in the WWF Arctic team to provide support for proactive and reactive communications strategies, using social media, as well as, more conventional venues. The Manager will also help to create briefings and outreach to key supporters of the program.

Master’s degree in communications, public policy, or relevant field and eight years of professional experience in communications and public relations is required. Knowledge of Alaska and conservation issues is also required. Successful candidates will have previous experience in senior-level communications and development; strong project management skills, and excellent writing, public speaking, and dynamic interpersonal skills. Creative and innovative thinking is a must. Knowledge of the non-profit sector is a plus.

This position will be based in Anchorage, AK
