We’re a nonprofit, no-paywall, multiplatform newsroom that reaches more than 750,000 readers per month across our site, social channels, newsletter, podcast, and events.

POSITION DESCRIPTION

Rewire News Group is seeking an enthusiastic development specialist with experience in fundraising and/or digital marketing/communications. The ideal candidate is an excellent communicator, collaborator, and coordinator who can keep up with our editorial content and the repro landscape in general and find opportunities to build fundraising and communications efforts around it.

Fundraising is a team effort—the Development Specialist will report to the Vice President, Finance and Operations, and work closely with the Development Manager and VP of Audience Engagement among others. The Development Specialist will primarily focus on online fundraising strategies and individual donors. This is a great opportunity for a young professional to gain experience and grow in a development role. 

To be successful in this position, the Development Specialist should be a creative and innovative self-starter with a passion for digital engagement and reproductive rights from the perspective of journalism rather than advocacy.

  • Create engaging and dynamic email copy and communications;
  • Coordinate Rewire News Group audience events to cultivate and grow the individual donor base;
  • Manage the Bloomerang donor database and ensure individual giving and other interactions are recorded and acknowledgments are sent in a timely manner;
  • Manage individual donor data, and regularly compile and present reports and dashboards;
  • Research and stay up to date on audience engagement and individual donor best practices, trends and related topics;
  • Perform other duties and projects as assigned. 

QUALIFICATIONS:

  • At least two (2) years of experience with digital engagement and email marketing or fundraising;
  • Disciplined self-starter with the ability to work with team members and leadership to develop and execute on development strategies, goals, campaigns, and tactics;
  • Demonstrated experience creating engaging and dynamic email copy or newsletters;
  • Experience with MailChimp preferred;
  • Experience planning and executing virtual events preferred;
  • Excellent oral, written, and interpersonal communication skills, including the ability to adapt style and tone to different audiences;
  • Experience with donor databases and analysis of donor and engagement data;
  • Understanding of digital strategies and the social media landscape as they evolve;
  • Organization, attention to detail, analytical and problem-solving skills in a fast paced environment;
  • Willingness to follow and operate within stated Rewire News Group policies and values;
  • Creativity, flexibility, passion, drive, inclusivity, and a sense of humor!
