Request for Proposals: Corporate Campaigns Consultant
Fair Farms is a movement of Marylanders of all stripes, working together for a new food system — one that is fair to farmers, invests in homegrown, healthy food, and restores our waterways instead of polluting them. We seek a seasoned professional to work on a contract basis as we leverage our movement of 20,000+ Marylanders in support of corporate change.
Your Background and Experiences
You have a strong background in leveraging consumer and grassroots power to shift corporate behavior. You possess 21st century writing skills proven to galvanize an online audience; experience with attracting powerful earned media; and understanding of the marriage between online advocacy and offline actions and how to move a constituency up a ladder of engagement. Bonus points if you are familiar with issues related to sustainable agriculture.
Our budget allows for a 4-8 month relationship with a contractor who can devote several hours per month to this project, understanding that they will have other clients and projects at the same time.
You will work closely and have access to a deep well of expertise. This includes our campaign staff, including an Executive Director, Campaign and Communications Manager, Program Assistant, and Legal Fellow, as well as two communications consultants, our steering committee members and interested partners, and interns. You will work with us to refine and execute a campaign with an already-identified corporate target, and to build a campaign around an as-yet-to-be-identified lever for change.
Proposals should include information as to how your background makes you uniquely qualified for this position, an overview of how you would approach the work and 3 references that can speak to your proficiency in this area
