    Global Multimedia Marketing Manager


    Are you ready to use your storytelling and production skills to expand the impact of a pioneering social enterprise and correct the vision of millions of low-income customers so they can work, learn, stay safe, and care for their families?

    VisionSpring seeks a collaborative, technically savvy visual storyteller. The global multimedia marketing manager leads MP4 & MP3 content creation and development, creating original content directly and managing a team of international consultants to produce multimedia content. The global manager oversees day-to-day dynamic content development, operations, and co-manages amplification. Audiences include current and potential individual donors; institutional donors; media outlets; partners; and other key stakeholders. The person in this role works closely with the global director of marketing and communications and the global communications manager to develop and implement VisionSpring’s strategic communications plan, including the editorial calendar. The global manager is the primary liaison with internal/external photographers and videographers.

    As VisionSpring builds its marketing and communications capacity, the person in this role works in close collaboration with internal stakeholders, including the marketing, development, programs, and sales teams across eight countries—Bangladesh, Ghana, India, Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda, Vietnam, and Zambia—and other markets. This position reports to the global director of marketing and communications and may be located anywhere in the Eastern or Central time zone of the United States.

    ABOUT YOU

    • ·        You are an excellent video producer, writer, and storyteller. You find joy in collaboration with team members across time zones to uncover the colorful details that bring your stories to life, even if it means starting early some mornings.
    • ·        You are deeply curious about social enterprise models, field operations, and the experiences of partners and customers; you are an exceptional organizational ambassador.
    • ·        You shine when communicating with internal and external stakeholders, and your words inspire excitement about what we can do together.
    • ·        You have an eye for design and love generating distinctive messaging that allows mission-driven organizations to do good, better.
    • ·        You enjoy creating structure, have exceptional focus and follow-through, and prioritize before you act.
    • ·        You are flexible and adaptable, and thrive in environments where each day is unlike the next.

    ABOUT US

    ·        VisionSpring is creating access to affordable eyewear, everywhere. Clear vision creates opportunities for increased learning, work, safety, civic participation, and quality of life.

    ·        As a social enterprise, social change motivates us first. Our focus on sales and revenue targets serves and advances our mission objective—to increase functioning, productivity, and income earning potential for our low-income consumers by correcting refractive error with eyeglasses.

    ·        We are working to transform the systemic dysfunction of an optical market that has failed to deliver eyeglasses—a 700-year-old technology—to 1.1 billion consumers in need of vision correction, most of whom live on less than $4 a day.

    ·        We serve low-income consumers, not as beneficiaries but as customers. Our customers expect a high-quality and affordable product, and they will spend limited discretionary income for the immediate and tangible benefits of vision correction.

    ·        By selling eyeglasses, we awaken new demand and seed a viable market. By selling new eyeglasses we are able to serve four times as many people per dollar input than the alternative of donating recycled ones. To efficiently scale, we must deliver each new unit with lower cost.

    ·        We run our business on both sales metrics and social impact measures. We use a range of organizational forms and practices to get the job done.

    ·        We believe in scaling our impact, not our organization. We are a lean team of doers.

    Rescue Mission of Trenton


    GRANT WRITER


    The Rescue Mission of Trenton last year served 152,251 meals to 1,415 individuals who had nowhere else to turn, helped 153 people experiencing homelessness obtain their own housing, and was just awarded a highly-competitive, first-time grant to create an outreach program to provide services from a mobile unit that will travel to high-risk areas where people congregate who are struggling with opioid addiction. And behind each of those numbers is a personal story of hope, potential and opportunity.


    We are looking for an individual to join our team who has a strong belief in social justice, is compassionate for those in need, enjoys collaborating, writes in a manner that is clear and compelling, and who wants to make a significant impact on helping our organization – which, for over a century, has been dedicated to feeding those who are hungry, housing those who are homeless, counseling those seeking recovery and providing life-changing opportunities.


    We are open to a full-time position (with great benefits) for either a novice or seasoned Grant Writer – or a consultant who would work off-site. Either way, you will be collaborating directly with the President of the organization, and be part of a dedicated and talented team including a New York Times bestselling author, and executives in finance, data, compliance and operations.
