Water Watch of Oregon is seeking a full-time Communications and Outreach Coordinator. The successful applicant will be a champion for WaterWatch’s values and will be expected to tell WaterWatch’s story and the story of healthy rivers in a variety of communities and formats to build strategic demand for changed water policies and support for WaterWatch.
WaterWatch is a river conservation organization dedicated to protecting and restoring streamflows in Oregon’s rivers for fish, wildlife, and the people who depend on healthy rivers. WaterWatch advocates for sound water policies in Oregon. For over thirty years we have worked in the courts, state and federal agencies, the legislature and the media to ensure that enough water is left in our rivers to sustain the fish, wildlife, and people who depend on healthy rivers. WaterWatch has a budget approaching $1,000,000, a staff of eight, a board of fifteen and two offices: one in Portland and a satellite office in Ashland. The Communications and Outreach Coordinator would work out of the Portland office.
The position reports to the Development Director but will also coordinate, when necessary, with the Communications Director and Executive Director. This position would not be oriented toward the news media and/or be responsible for legislation or lobbying efforts but will be actively engaged with social media and many communities to build demand for policy reform and support for WaterWatch.
