Now in its second century, Audubon is dedicated to protecting birds and other wildlife and the habitat that supports them. Audubon’s mission is engaging people in bird conservation on a hemispheric scale through science, policy, education and on-the-ground conservation action. By mobilizing and aligning its network of Chapters, Centers, State and Important Bird Area programs in the four major migratory flyways in the Americas, the organization will bring the full power of Audubon to bear on protecting common and threatened bird species and the critical habitat they need to survive. And as part of BirdLife International, Audubon will join people in over 100 in-country organizations all working to protect a network of Important Bird Areas around the world, leveraging the impact of actions they take at a local level. What defines Audubon’s unique value is a powerful grassroots network of nearly 500 local chapters, 23 state offices, 41 Audubon Centers, Important Bird Area Programs in 50 states, and 700 staff across the country. Audubon is a federal contractor and an Equal Opportunity Employer (EOE).
Reporting to the Vice President and Executive Director for Audubon Washington and working in close coordination with the National Campaign and Policy teams, the Washington State Campaign Manager is charged with building political power and executing the National Audubon Society’s priorities within Washington, while effectively leveraging and building upon the organization’s grassroots and grasstops assets. As part of the state office, the Campaign Manager will spearhead the integration and coordination of a multidisciplinary team to plan, implement and win Audubon’s policy campaigns. The Manager is responsible for developing and leading the overall vision for implementation of multi-year campaigns in the state, to include: identifying goals, strategy and tactics; establishing messaging and overseeing outreach and media needs; determining how to leverage and align staff resources when possible; managing oversight on tracking, evaluation and accountability; and coordinating with campaign partners.
The Campaign Manager will be based in Seattle, although other locations may be considered. Additionally, this role is grant-funded and anticipated to last 3 years, with the potential to continue pending funding and programmatic needs.
