General Overview: 360 Campaign Consulting is a political consulting firm that partners with good groups to do great things, and we are currently seeking Voter Registration Campaign Directors to join us on an important and exciting non-partisan campaign to help tens of thousands of people register to vote in the state of Wisconsin. Voting is a fundamental right, and our pursuit of a truly representative democracy demands that we engage every eligible voter to register and vote in November, particularly members of underrepresented communities across the state. 

The Voter Registration Campaign Director will recruit, train, and manage a team of local canvassers to assist citizens in successfully completing their voter registration applications. Additionally, the Campaign Director will manage a team of one or more Deputy Directors, and will be responsible for building an office to scale from the ground up. This position reports to the Project Director.

Locations: We are hiring for positions in Milwaukee and Green Bay.

Duration: These positions will begin in early March and run through the end of summer, with additional opportunities to extend through the election and potentially beyond.

  • Recruit members of the community to work as canvassers and assist people in carefully and correctly filling out voter registration forms
  • Manage a team of 15-20 canvassers, setting and driving goals along the way
  • Familiarize yourself with state registration laws and statutes, and train your staff to comply with all applicable legal requirements and processes for registering voters
  • Build a database of successful locations for registering voters that focuses on engaging people of color and other underrepresented communities. Coordinate canvassing sites for your staff, and work with partner groups to avoid overlapping efforts in the field 
  • Go out in the field yourself several days per week to canvass, train staff, and help drive office goals
  • Administrative duties, including working with the HR Director on payroll, onboarding and offboarding staff, and compliance

Qualifications:

  • Prior experience running a voter registration/canvassing operation (required)
  • Leadership experience, ability to motivate and manage a large team
  • Extreme attention to detail and a proven ability to instill that quality in others
  • Self-starter with excellent problem-solving skills
  • Excitement for community organizing and fostering civic engagement
  • Ability to work long hours, including evenings and weekends

Salary: The salary range for this position is $1,000-$1,200 per week. We offer a generous benefits package, including paid vacation and sick leave, health insurance, and hands-on training. At the end of the campaign, there may be opportunities for advancement and bonuses.

At 360 Campaign Consulting we believe deeply that diversity and equity in our organization make us better at our work and help to build an inclusive progressive movement.
