Job Posting: Public Lands Campaign Coordinator
West Virginia Rivers Coalition (WV Rivers), a statewide nonprofit organization advocating since 1989 for the conservation and restoration of WV’s exceptional rivers and streams, seeks a Public Lands Campaign Coordinator to build support for public lands and raise awareness of both national and local threats. The position coordinates the work of West Virginians for Public Lands — an alliance of organizations, businesses and individuals committed to protecting and enhancing the benefits of public lands to West Virginians.
Public lands in West Virginia and across the nation are under threat. Proposals in Congress weaken protections for public lands, open recreation lands to resource extraction, even sell off national forests and other lands. West Virginians for Public Lands was created to ensure WV congressional members know there is broad-based support among their constituents to protect public lands and their many recreational, ecological and economic benefits.
The WV Rivers Public Lands Campaign Coordinator is responsible for the overall execution and coordination of campaign goals and activities. The position is responsible for tracking campaign activities and reporting on their results; coordinating and tracking the efforts of campaign staff and partners; responding to requests for information; and pursuing opportunities for public engagement. The position is a 40 hours/week, one-year position, with the potential for extension. Persons with previous team leadership and/or campaign management experience are encouraged to apply.

Proficiency in Microsoft Office applications; working understanding of, or ability to learn, cloud-based applications like Google Groups, Google Docs, Office 365, Salesforce and WordPress; excellent written and oral communications and meeting facilitation skills; interest and ability to learn about policies impacting public lands. Must be available for periodic travel, including occasional overnight meetings. Previous team leadership and/or campaign management experience is a plus.
