ERI is excited about the work we’re doing, but in order for us to fill our potential we also need to grow our team. At this point, we can only hire people who can raise at least a significant portion of their own financial support, but that will change as our funding increases, which is important because some of these positions would be easier to fund through support-raising than others.
If you’re interested in joining our team either as a full-time or part-time staff member or as an intern, email us with a resume and references.
Here are some of the positions we would like to see filled:
We would like to hire a full-time development director. This person would have primary responsibility over General Fund strategy and fundraising, including: cultivating major donors; seeking grant opportunities; maintaining donor relationships; aiding in budget development based on projected income and expenses; and managing our donor information using a software database. Due to the nature of these responsibilities, some travel is expected.
SPEAKERS / WRITERS / PHILOSOPHERS
We are interested in growing our Philosophy Team. We are especially seeking critical thinkers who can also write. One of the functions of the members of the Philosophy Team is to push against each other’s ideas and help shape the organization’s thinking on complex issues and new developments. Other prospective job functions include writing posts for the blog, writing scripts for video content, and recording podcasts and videos.
SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGER / COMMENTS MODERATOR
We would like to hire someone who can spend the time necessary to elevate our social media presence. Aspects of this role include scheduling frequent social media posts (our most common recurring posts are currently images with quotes from our training content and links to evergreen content) and interacting with commenters on both social media and the blog. Ideally, the person who fills this role will contribute ideas for brand development and content strategy for different media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube). This person would either need to be trained in Davinci Resolve or another tool like Descript, as they would convert long-form videos into shorter clips.
