The Senior Project Manager (PM) supports Audubon executives by helping to ensure the success of major initiatives and projects by employing project and change management discipline and best practices. The Senior Project Manager (PM) is part of the Audubon wide PMO team-which is part of the Office of the COO.
The client of the Senior Project Manager is the Initiative lead and/or the Departmental Executives who are ultimately accountable for initiative success.

As a key member of a fast-paced Development team, the Development Communications manager will work closely with fundraising and program staff at all levels to create persuasive proposals, stewardship reports, PowerPoint presentations, and other communications to engage Principal and Major donors. This highly collaborative role requires a seasoned professional with a good understanding of what information is most important to funders—and the ability to sift through material and ask the right questions in order to get it. S/he will often play a key role in shaping the overall framing and messaging for how we present Audubon’s work to funders, and must be creative, thoughtful, resourceful, and strategic as well as a very strong writer.
S/he will be responsible for managing projects from start to finish, including strategy development; securing needed information from program staff; writing, revising, and editing copy; and managing Audubon graphic design staff and vendors to produce polished, attractive materials that Audubon Senior Staff, including the CEO, will share with existing and current funders.
While the primary focus for this position will be Principal and Major Gifts fundraising efforts, the successful candidate will also provide grant writing and other support for Institutional Giving and other Audubon staff and departments as needed.
Hog Island is a 333-acre island located in the town of Bremen, Maine. It is the site of the Audubon Camp in Maine, a resident facility that provides on-site instruction in ornithology and natural history and local field trips. A commercial-grade kitchen is part of the dining building known as “The Bridge.” Food and supplies are delivered to the mainland dock and the kitchen staff must transport food and supplies to Hog Island using camp boats; a pontoon boat or a small outboard motor boat. Tobacco use is prohibited in or near any buildings on hog island.
A commercial-grade kitchen is part of the dining building known as “The Bridge.” The kitchen staff, including the Head Chef, Sous Chef, and Kitchen Assistant, with the help of a group of devoted volunteers, provides 3 meals a day for up to 90 people during the course of the 6-day, 5-night camp sessions. The kitchen provides the only food service available on the island so it is important that staff review and accommodate the dietary restrictions of all staff, guests, and volunteers to provide safe, healthy, and complete dining options.
As there is no regular boat transportation service to and from Hog Island and the mainland, the Sous Chef is required to live in Audubon housing on Hog Island in order to perform the functions of this position. Campers and Hog Island staff are provided three meals each day, so early morning preparation is required for breakfast served at 6 or 7 AM and dinner activities may last until 7 or 8 PM. All-day field trips require preparation of picnic lunches and snacks.
A private room with nearby shared bath is available in the Bridge. Meals are provided on Hog Island when the kitchen is in operation. Candidates must be available for the period May 10, 2019 to October 1, 2018. The work schedule is for six-day/ five-night programs, 40 hours per week, and the day revolves around meal planning and service that includes breakfast, lunch and dinner.
