Working Families Party (WFP) is hiring an Artist and Culture Organizer to help us better engage surrogates and artists who are interested in expanding WFP’s base and profile. The right person for this position will be able to quickly develop a working knowledge of WFP campaigns and priorities and will bring with them a solid understanding of the unique nature of organizing people who have a platform.
This role will have a top-level view of WFP’s current Artist and Culture reach and will work with the Strategies and Partnerships Director to develop and implement our Artist and Celeb growth strategy. While they don’t need to come to WFP with their own relationships and connections, they must be able to build trust and move surrogates, celebs, and artists into WFP’s ladder of engagement.
The duties of this position will be responsive to campaigns and election cycles, but can generally be understood as artist and celeb organizing, tracking, and handling, and staff training. The Artist and Culture Organizer will report to the Strategies and Partnerships Director.
WFP has a broad understanding of the term Celeb. We believe that anyone with a platform should be supported as they organize via that platform. Our inclusive definition reflects WFP’s theory of change and leadership development strategy.
At WFP, a Celeb is anyone with a platform who is interested in leveraging that platform to further the strategic goals of WFP. Our definition of Celeb is not limited to individuals with national or international reach. Good organizers think of Celebs as those with strategic platforms, no matter the size. The goals of a campaign should be considered before determining the Celebs to target and cultivate. In local or regional campaigns, the most effective Celeb partnerships will likely be with individuals who may not be very recognizable outside of their home region. These Celebs often have a much deeper relationship with their fans, have fewer gatekeepers, and have more time to dedicate to the campaign.
The position is full time and remotely based anywhere in the United States during the current health crisis. When safe to travel, our preference is for you to be based in New York or Los Angeles.
The base salary range for this position is $70,000 to $85,000 and will be adjusted based on an internal equitable scale that takes into consideration years of experience, geographic location, and final job description. We also offer excellent benefits, paid holidays, vacation and sick time.
