Content Creation Coordinator

Company: Canadian Federation of Humane Societies
Date Posted: October 12, 2016

Are you a talented storyteller?

We are hiring a Content Creation Coordinator to join our small, tight-knit team.

Working with the Resource Development and Communications and Marketing teams, the Content Creation Coordinator is a skilled video producer, a strong writer and editor, and an experienced social media content creator. You love to create compelling content that both engages your target audience and inspires them to take action. You’re well-versed in community building online and offline. 

As the Content Creation Coordinator, you will contribute to the success of fundraising, communications and marketing objectives of the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies (CFHS). You will do this by creating a broad range of content that creatively expresses the mission, vision and values of the organization, showcasing our programs, original research, thought leadership and achievements in Canadian animal welfare. With the support of the Director of Resource Development and Manager of Communications and Marketing, you will help to shape the content we put out to donors, social media followers, member societies, sponsors and partners.

Whether writing our direct mail appeals, managing a multi-channel content calendar, shooting and editing a video, crafting ideas for blog posts, writing compelling e-appeals and donor-focused appeals for sites such as Global Giving, or working on a corporate report – you move easily between tasks and can shift priorities, as needed. If it’s a format you’ve never worked in before? No problem – you’re not afraid to do your research and give it a try. You are committed equally to accuracy and creativity. You always come to the table with fresh ideas.

Think you’d be a perfect addition to the CFHS team? We’d love to hear from you.
