2019 Habitat Marketing VISTA
Established in 1976, Habitat for Humanity operates in 1,400 communities across the United States and in 70 countries around the world. Our vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live: we bring people together to build homes, communities, and hope. Established in 1998, Chicagoland Habitat for Humanity is a support organization for eight Habitat affiliates located in Cook, Lake, McHenry, Kane, DuPage, and Will counties. We manage regional initiatives that increase revenue and reduce costs. Our goals are to raise awareness, grow capacity, and serve more families. Marketing VISTAs will live near and serve at one of our eight affiliate locations. VISTAs will work with staff to update and execute a marketing plan that embraces a multichannel strategy across traditional and online platforms. VISTAs will publicize major events, connect with sponsors, promote home ownership, connect ReStore and affiliate marketing efforts, and help affiliates gain exposure through local and regional media. We seek technology savvy college graduates who are adept in all forms of communication. We need organized team players who have the ambition to move our marketing program from good to great. We provide training and guidance; you provide energy and ingenuity; and together we will strengthen our affiliates and increase their capacity. VISTAs will learn that focused efforts can have a wide impact. Chicago has a reputation for sultry summers and challenging winters but working for Habitat will open your hearts and minds to the joys of helping families in need. VISTAs at our various locations will connect with each other regularly, visit the different sites, and attend regional trainings and events. VISTAs must serve a full year. We have an opening for a Marketing VISTA in Will County (Joliet, IL). For more information, visit our website or email our recruiter.
