At Burness, we promote ideas that inspire and drive social change worldwide. We are looking for a digital content manager to run the online presence of Burness.

You’ll work with people across the company to execute a variety of digital content creation activities— from email writing and sending to social media content planning and publishing — as we seek to tell the story of our work and further our mission.

This in-house digital content manager will build and maintain Burness’ digital platforms, working with teams to develop and execute content ideas. This is a role that will be exposed to every facet of the work Burness does in public interest communications.

Since our founding more than 30 years ago, we’ve worked with more than 600 nonprofits in the US and around the world. Our partners are changemakers in health, science, environment, education, social policy, agriculture and forestry, global development and more.

You are a great fit for this role if you can:

  • Think creatively and strategically about ways to further the company’s mission, the work of our partners and social justice causes through various online and offline channels.
  • Write, create, edit and publish various types of content that are creative enough to stand out in constantly-moving feeds and overcrowded inboxes. You should be able to translate the work Burness does. We need our research, data and policy actions to be converted into content that engages people online and offline.
  • Be naturally curious about and comfortable with public policy across a number of topics, or put another way, a daily reader of news who will not need an introduction to the major thematic issues in health, education, climate change, equity, race, etc. This position is tailored for the “news and policy junkie.”
  • Manage multiple projects at one time across several internal groups and juggle multiple pressing needs.
  • Know when to ask for help and how to problem-solve independently.
  • Be comfortable working with a variety of staffers who have different communication and project management styles. 
  • Knowledge of and experience with Sprout Social, Facebook Ads Manager, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premiere, Mailchimp, and basic HTML are a plus.

This is a part-time position paying $25-$40/hour (depending on experience) for 20-30 hours per week.
